    People making new posts

    This was gonna just be a response to the new Beseiged thread where the OP decides his random thoughts are bigger than any one thread and should be in a powerful, awesome thread of his own so we all see and don't risk skimming over it.

    But then I thought, why confine my thoughts on him making a new thread to that thread when it can be skimmed over?

    Stop making new threads about the same shit, assholes!

    There's another thread stating not to make new threads that got washed away...probably would have been better off bumping that....seeing as how you're following the same logic the guy that made the besieged post was..

    Technically couldn't you have just made this a reply to the topic you are referring to instead of making another new thread?

    LOL, I just read Aurik and I'll paraphrase: Topic Beseiged, "WHY DID YOU MAKE A NEW THREAD FOR THIS." I thought to myself, 'Boy, someone should make a post about starting new topics, especially when the same topic is on the 1st page still.'

    And then when I went back to index this topic was already started, good work!

    People judge post counts, and the nay-sayers will argue, but I would put my money on people starting new posts of old subjects have lower post counts than people that don't start new(old) posts.

    Because 90% of the time the information is posted in a thread with a completely unrelated subject line.

    If you read through the "Corsair gets ranged WS without RNG subjob" thread by page 2 people aren't even talking about WS or Subjobs anymore. Making new threads to talk about different topics is what Forums are about.

    "What, you didn't read about how much Refresh Evokers Roll gives in page 17 of the 'what subjob should COR use' thread? OMG you're spamming the forums with new topics!"

    That is frequently true, although it wasn't in this case.

    Is there was a way to reduce the number of people allowed to start topics (i.e. minimum post count or whatnot), but would allow you to post in already existing topics? That would reduce the redundant topics as well as get rid of the forum bots that periodically spam BG forums. The particular idiosyncracies of BG forums take some getting used to, and it takes some time to figure out how it works and avoid getting flamed. Having that first 25, 50 or 100 posts to figure out what topics work and what don't I think would help. And if you're looking for help on a particular subject, you're pretty much forced to learn how to use the search forum. Seems like a win-win.

    I'll have to agree with Faranim that most threads Subjects do not mach their content by page 2 much less page 10. Some new threads are stupid I'll agree as they just restate some obviously already knowing info while others like the post about potential AF1 quests are quite informative (or misinformative) and would've gotten lost in the large BLU discoveries thread.

    On a sidenote I think BRP secretly loves these threads because every one is a chance for him to raise his post count while bitching about the thread


    /em looks at his own post count.
