aterial/Message. We all hate it, so let’s not contribute to spreading it. Frivolous solicitation and self-promotion is not allowed. Links to other sites that are relevant to the discussion are fine, but promoting your own or somene else’s commercial venture or competing site isn’t. This rule applies to all functions of the board, including e-mails and private messages. Loudmouth Forums does not provide free advertising space. It is at the discretion of the moderators to make the final decision as to what constitutes spam, but just use common sense and we’ll be fine.
Intentional Post Count Raising
- Posting comments just to raise post count is considered as SPAM
. We refer to this here as "Post Whoring". A common instance of this is replying to questions that have already been answered and repeating the answer (see; Bumping Dead Topics), or just posting nonsense that has absolutely nothing to do with that forum or discussion at hand.
- One-word replies are classified as SPAM
. There is code in place which forces the user to use at least 6 characters in their post, however that doesn't mean it is ok to litter the forum with One-word replies like "wow", "nice", or "cool". Moderators will delete most posts of this nature.
