Re: Daily post quota exceeded...It is like isolation for me!!!

This seems to be a hot topic lately.

Instead of whining, perhaps people should be a little more selective in what they post. We really don't need to hear your opinions (clarified, expanded and re-clarified) on absolutely everything.




Hi Pot. I'm Kettle. Pleased to meet you.

Pleased to make your aquaintance.

Don't worry though, within a week I will have my own life back and my fingers and brain will be tired from doing real work which should see your communal suffering at my posts start to drop off drastically.

Priorities like getting laid are going to be getting in the way of EF waffle.

You see. This is the sort of thing about which we could live without knowing.

Good lord, it is Monday morning and my sarcasm detector is broken!!!!
If you are being sarcastic, please groan at this post. If not, then please thank me. I can then answer by editing the post and not exceeding my limit.

Sorry, I forgot to add that you should remove the thanks afterwards......

Thanks DB for answering the question. That is based on total posts on the forum. I have now violated my weekly quota as well so I guess I will be away for a while.


DB: I see you are a man that runs very close to this limit most of the time? What do you feel about the rule?

Re: Daily post quota exceeded...It is like isolation for me!!!

( cheap way to get a "thanks" if you ask me )


and yes it was a serious question... If I'm not out on a flounce or subject to a banning I am just full of totally useless info.

I am sure you have a lot of info to contribute, not just silly things. Cmon now, it's not like we have so many posters in our area..support!

Caps are not penalties, but a way to distribute virtual space, me thinks.

So no more welcoming newbies, congratulations, birthday wishes, helpful practical advice or information - just need to keep your quota for general waffle

Noo, the other way, hahaha.
Helpful, practical advice, welcoming newbies..

I think it is the level of expertise of our lovely members that makes this special forum really stand out. Not the waffle everyone can get his fix on another, not so special places.

Could you swap the first picture for binoculars please DB, more my style.
But you can't twitch when it's raining, so you need to change the first consonant

Re: Posting limit reached

Just for those that are interested and to show that I had some lunch time on my hands...here is a spreadsheet showing number of posts, posts per day, rep per post and rep per day for the top 100 posters, plus myself.

https://skydrive.live.com/view.aspx?cid=C5F5BDF3D54E76D6&resid=C5F5BDF3D54E7 6D6%211781

It should open in MS Excel on the web and you can download a copy if you like.
