over the years I've often heard users say that you are allowed to make 2 threads per day in the pit max, but I can't find that anywhere in the officials rules. however, seeing so often over the years has made me wonder if i've missed it.

where does this come from? is it true?
#2
No it isn't true.


I kind of wish there was a way to set a limit on how many threads a user can post every day. That would help when we get spam attacks.
#3
if so you better make your second one worht while!
like tacos.

but i actually have never heard such bussiness

I think if you make good threads it shouldn't be a problem.

Speaking of good threads, check out my last 2 and vote in them

Wait.


The Pit has RULES?
1. Open My Computer.
2. Open C:
3. Click on WINDOWS.
4. Open the folder "Media."
5. Click on the file "onestop."
6. Listen.

I always thought there was a thread-making limit in The Pit. But I think that's only been applied to the other forums.
3 threads a day, and 3 shoop threads a month would be groovy.
#10
It's just common courtesy, MOST people who make that many threads a day make **** threads. Like me. I used to make threads, but they all sucked, so I stopped making them.

I think 1 shoop thread per user per month is absolutely adequate.

but imagine the pit actually has a 2 thread per day limit, you make 2 and suddenly have a really important thing / good idea you want to talk about, but posting it would get you warned or banned

tbh doesn't sound like a good idea to me
unless you have the limit at like 6 or 7 threads.

EDIT: to guy above me, well I make tons of threads as well (and I mean TONS), and many people have voted me best threadstarter in the UG awards

I think its more of something someone noticed, like odds are you will be able to make a maximum of 2 decent threads.
the 3rd will most likely fail.

I think it's more than adequate. Hell, it should be one per month full stop, with the quickest person to make a shoop thread taking glory and the others banned.

*can just imagine the rush of users typing their new thread posts at 25:58 on the last day of the month*

That's not how mine go at all. It's like "Check this out!"

"No."

Mods have longer days....

Edit: Holy **** I am late.

Anything else you wanna tell me about guys?
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

I did. I really quite disliked you before. Lately, you've been awesome.
I wish I had your skills at starting a good convo.
(although, I was fairly satisfied with my pony thread. )

Limits on threads need to be on a case-by-case basis.
5 Great threads by a user just makes for a great day.

2 shitty threads by a user is just ... well, shitty.


Too many users get their ideas for threads from other threads that are currently on UG. That usually makes for a shitty thread. The topic is already up. TS is just tryna be the center of attention. The target shouldn't be getting your name out there as a TS. It should be participating in great conversations and occasionally starting one, where one is needed. Or bringing teh lulz, when there are lulz to be had.

Same.

Frankly, I've never heard of this rumour.

Random fact: I close most of my own threads because I realise they suck after 2 posts. If I even get 2 posts.

It would actually be VERY easy to program that. The forums are written in PHP, so all it would take is a simple database search to see if the user posted threads that day, and if the number of threads posted is less than 2, you can let them post another.

Because you seem to be the only mod who actually posts in The Pit, rather than occasionally coming in to say

"Thread Closed. Everyone gets a warning. "

So long as those 3 shoop threads are DECENT.
I need something to do while I wait for the next shoop thread to come along. And half the shoop threads nowadays suck .
