    Except we're letting you reach that barrier, if you weren't posting properly you'd have been banned before you could clutter up the place. We aren't publicly discussing what we're doing in the background to deal with this, this is just the most obvious thing we've done. That's all I can really say in order to placate you, I'm not willing to say more on the subject.

    I might be obtuse here, but I don't think there is a way to prevent copying the content on the sight. Unless you're going to inject random strings into each post that are specific to users I'm not sure of a way to find the specific user who is copying content, and that would rely of negligence. Which is this is being done by a program would likely work unless the user is careful.

    Obviously you're not looking for master criminals though, and its after 6am and I haven't slept so I might be missing something. I still think this is a futile exercise. Maybe you're just trying to make it look like you're cracking down, so they will just stop of their own accord.

    are they just titles or are there more parts of the site you can see every time your title goes up? sorry for all the questions.

    When the site was young we had a feature called reputation, the bigger your post count the more reputation you could give other people, it was tied to the title.

    In addition, back then getting a high post count without being chewed out was a bit of a task, so there was a certain prestige attached to it, and by association, the title. These days we're a lot more relaxed about that sort of thing.

    Wow, getting real tired of the tier-based discrimination going on here.

    What's next mods? Perhaps a caste system?



    Vote for Apoc, the Mod who won't oppress you in a hierarchical, oligarchical, triarchical, and possibly patriarchal organized system of oppression.

    A vote for Apoc is a vote for you.

    A vote for apoc is a vote for assisted suicide.

    I'm here to help, really.

    Donimo, you said it yourself, it inconveniences you. You've made your position clear and so have Jon and Narf. WBA is not an alternative to FFnet, its purpose is completely different. It's not DLP's fault that you seem to refuse to understand that. DLP doesn't do anything to prevent you from becoming a valued member of the community if you joined today and started posting. I thought I was late to the party two years ago. I'd just say to you to eat a bag of fleshy phallic objects, but I'm polite so I won't.

    Personally, I think it's a good move. WBA is for people who actually post. And if the new fence to jump causes people to spam-post, well, then it's just going to be easier to weed out the dumbasses.

    Wow way to push you own definition of help onto them Jon.

    Maybe they want assisted suicide. Did you ever think of that?

    I mean why else would they keep posting in this thread?

    I haven't posted a new thread in the Review Board in a while but I'm pretty sure it means the box next to the title box where you have select if the story is complete, a WIP or a oneshot.

    Correction. We have a reputation for being assholes to idiots. You're the reason why.
