This "must have 95 posts to be able to post links" policy is understandable. It clearly keeps the spammers away, and is working well to accomplish that.

HOWEVER, I think 95 posts is excessive. It's keeping some really solid, dependable, daily posters from posting useful links to this forum sometimes.

And I don't think I am the only one. I've seen the complaint countless times, where people want to post a relevant link to something and they cannot.

So, this is not a complaint thread really (even though it may sound like one from that).

Instead, this is a pre-season push to get some of our post-counts high enough to be able to post links during the season.

Who's with me? If so, lets just use this thread to chat for the next week. About anything, though obviously basketball talk would be more desirable than non-basketball talk.

What do you have on your mind?

^^ Policies are in place for a reason, Markcronan. I understand what you are trying to do but couldn't you do the same with posting on existing threads? How about involving yourself on a game thread? I am sure you could easily accomplish half the count in one game if you wanted to.

And NO, you can't talk about anything. It has to be Clipper related on this section of the message board. If you want to shoot the breeze about anything, you have take it to the EVERYTHING ELSE section of the board.

My suggestion would be to frequent the board more often and engage more than you are. You already have have 74 posts to your name. You are already there.

Are yah kidding? Have you not seen me posting in virtually every thread here, multiple times? I am here every day, probably 10 times a day! There is only so much relevant stuff that can be said by one person in existing threads before they dominate the conversation and make the thread worse rather than better.

Hey if that is the rule that is the rule, and I will obey it. But 95 posts is A LOT, and I cannot count the number of times people have complained about it and asked for that policy to be changed to a lower number. If as you say there is a reason for the 95 rule, as opposed to making it a 25 count rule, I'd love to hear it.

By the way, feel free to move this thread to the Everything Else forum if that is where you think it belongs.

if you were here 10x/day and then just posted once each time you would already be at 100.

JUST DO IT!

No, I am not kidding. And yes, I have read all of your posts ( good thoughts, I might add) . And by the same rational, are you not doing the same thing ( making an irrelevant thread that has no substance or structure for the sake being able to post links)? I'd rather have a relevant thread dominated than to have a thread started to pad the post count. But that is just me.

I don't make the rules, Mark. And remember, i read every post and yes, there have been a few that have brought up the subject but I wouldn't call it as complaining more than I would call it an inquiry.

Actually, I don't have a problem if it has to do with Clipper Bball. I am not sure what david has to say about it, though.

Note: If we keep going back & forth, who knows, you might reach the 95 post count. And if you do, that would be great.

Just keep this to pre-season Clipper basketball and we really don't have a problem. Taking the liberty to adjust the rules ( non BBall conversation) is why I spoke up...and the fact that even though you say it wasn't a complaint, it was.

Like I said, if this is about a general thread for the pre-season ( LAC), go at it. If not, this will have to be moved.

OK, fair enough Smile

I'm happy to talk about favorite foods at a Clippers game!

For example, I always likes the large diet coke and preztel. Best when you have one of the front rows in the up level, so you can rest it all on the cement shelf that's there, holding up the glass barrier.

CJ is right on. The rules are here to keep away spammers- believe me there are a ton of them lurking. I really don't understand it since their links will be taken down and they'll get banned, but STILL they try and try.

Thanks for understanding Mark. And yeah feel free to talk about anything over at the EE section!

So far I've tried to post two relevant links on these boards, but Clipper*Joe has done a great job of sorting it out when I requested it. It can be annoying, but it definately is for the best. Maybe I don't fully agree with 95, but hopefully this won't be a problem for me much longer. I'll find out what I'm up to after I post this.

80! Oh, and just by the by, why exactly 95? Why not 100 for example, or 50? Just wondered who came up withthat random figure...did an amazing ex clipper used to wear the 95 jersey or something Razz

Thanks!

By the way, a few hours after this thread was put up, there was a spammer trying to peddle a cheesy Clippers logo T-shirt with Griffin in place of the Clippers. Believe me, now that we've got the attention of fans, the spammers will try and sneak that type of stuff in here. That's the main reason for the post count. As far as the 95 posts, I am not sure what the story is. Hey, 5 less than 100, right? lol

^^Hahah yeah I'm not really sure where I came up w/ that # myself. I think it might have been because a former member here who started spamming after like 50 posts. I've got no problem changing it, but I think it's an okay # for now.

But yeah thanks CJ for being so vigilant and helpful!

nah trust me if you are REALLY into the clippers and this forum, you'll get ur 95 in no time. especially when we get close game wins or close game losses, the game threads start to go on forever, so you'll get your post and have fun with it too.

At the rate I'm going, I don't think I'll ever get to 95 posts. Lol. I mean, I come to this forum on a daily basis, but I'm not as active as I was on CT. Well, hopefully I'll get going when the season starts.

I actually don't mind having the 95 post limit. it keeps the posts count down. Have you guys been on the espn nba boards recently? Everyone posts random topics. At least here we know we are comitted clippers fans. You will hit your posts count soon enough guys. Especially once the season is on and you are in game threads.

So far we have 17 posts about getting 95 posts. Not one post about the Clippers. Outstanding thread so far!

OK, I'll try and fix that (since I still need to get 95 posts too). I was pleased to hear that Kareem Rush is officially on the team now. I think it was the right call by Dunleavy. Also, I think the starters should get pretty limited minutes in the last preseason game on Friday.

You're right, but I think my post in this thread was up before the Rush thread got created. I could be wrong though.
