Hello IFC. As I have been exploring the community I have noticed that some community members excessively post. You folks know who you are. Something needs to be done about these folks who create useless topics and clog the forum. I won’t publically shame anyone but this needs to be stopped.
What is considered Excessive Topic Creation?
From what I have noticed the people who I speak of create over four topics a week. Some folks have created more topics than the total number of days they have visited the site. These topics tend to be basic questions that have already been asked on the forum. A total of more than 8 topics a month is a bit crazy and extreme. Be mindful of how many posts you make a month.
What should be done to prevent this.
A basic search on the forum can be done to prevent an excessive number of topics on the forum. Most questions on the forum have been answered, if you can’t find an answer then feel free to ask. Moderators could also help too if you notice someone is creating a large number of topics, it would be great if you notified them on their behavior and politely asked them to stop. Enforcing a maximum number of topics that can be created in a month would create a large difference on the forum and prevent clogging.
So to conclude, for those who would be considered an Excessive Topic Creator, please just search the forum or ask a friend on the IFC. Creating over a certain amount of posts a month is just ridiculous. Hopefully, this post will help create new rules and stop those who excessively post. Thanks, everyone watch those total number of topics created.
