"DOUBLE POST" FOR DUMMIES:

Postby papercoffee » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:04 pm

Many people are still not aware about double posts, and what exactly it is.
This little guide should help those poor clueless people.

This is a double or triple post: It can contain even more posts in a row.

This is NOT a double post:

Hi old farts ... :mrgreen:


This is also NOT a double post: It's called a conversation!

evil papercoffee wrote:Oh Noooz ...I made another double post!!! hahahahaha lol.

15 minutes later.
papercoffee wrote:No, you didn't.


Do you see the difference?
Double posts are annoying and a no-no and should be avoided.
The exception is a tutorial thread with a huge buttload of content (pictures and text plus links).

I hope this clears everything up now.
If someone still asks what a "double post" supposed to be ...link him to this little guide.

So... what happens if you "accidentally" make a quadruple-post, which would be 2 double-posts on top of each other?
Does the combination of 4 posts, back to back, negate the dual double-post??

What about editing your post? Won't that solve most of the double-posting issue or am I missing on something here?
the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

You are correct. Editing is exactly what the admins are asking of us, unless one is having a back and forth discussion with others. If you were the last poster in a thread and want to say more, edit, regardless of the time passed.

AFAIK, 'bumping' and 'necro-bumping' are also frowned upon unless one is adding important information or updating a thread that has some worth in being resurrected. Adding "me too" to a thread that has slipped far down the page is bad manners.

Forum etiquette is typically pretty straightforward, but there is some subtlety to be observed as well. Multi-page threads (eg; "Funny Pictures") can usually be bumped, but these threads usually reside in 'off-topic', where the rules become somewhat more elastic.

So, if I'm understanding this correctly...

EDIT: Actually, ignore those bits under this. I get it now.

Hmm , it would seem that perhaps the RULES themselves need to be Re-Evaluated IMHO.
because this problem with DOUBLE POSTING aint ever going to go away.

and being some sort of 'Society' I am wondering if we are of a 'Democratic Society?' ,
if so then perhaps have a POLL / VOTE and either ENFORCE it (punishable by public abuse) or BOOT IT (for good)

:tu:
