Bad boy!

How dare you try to make an old thread useful again!


~~~~~~~


Guys...

This forum does not get a thousand posts an hour. Or a day. I don't think it gets a thousand posts in two weeks. (I might easily be wrong about that.).

It's not like the forum is swimming in old threads brought back to life just so someone can say "wowsers", or "That hood ornament is the bee's knees", or "cool brake handle foot throttle"!

If the forum were really busy, I could understand stricter rules about posting.

But it's NOT busy.

And it will not get busy as long as we have hall monitors slapping people's hands every day for bringing up old posts, making more than one post in a row, not quoting more than one person per post, etc.

It is good to have rules when they are needed.

It is also good to chill out about those rules when no one has been a nuisance, troll, or spammer.


And I guess it may be about time that I drop this before I get labeled a nuisance, and banned. LOL


It just seems to me that the forum is awfully slow, and I know from experience that slapping people's hands for things that are of no real consequence, is not a good recipe for making a forum popular.

If someone was coming in here and reviving old threads just to go Oooh and Ahhh... Then about the 5th time they did that, I'd ask them to cease and desist. That is an example of reviving old threads beginning to have consequence.

But k2500life was merely trying to get some useful information from someone who had posted in the past. Information that might be useful for his current build. The fact that he revived an old thread to do so, is of no real consequence.

Willis, you are absolutely correct that there is a rule, (And a GOOD reason for the rule.), and it was broken. You are also correct that the OP will most likely never reply. But k2500life is also right in thinking it was worth a try. And it really didn't hurt anything for him to try.

I hope I am making some sense here, and not just coming across as some kind of belligerant, or troublemaker. I really like this forum. I like the community. And I'd like to see it grow. And I don't think being strict about some of the rules is conducive to that.

Thank you. And if you guys choose to ban me as a troublemaker, well.. I had fun, and thank you for all the great comaraderie and advice!

Angchor, the reason why we enforce the rules is its kinda like a nucence, like why revive a old thread if there's a very very high percentage that he won't talk back? I haven't ever witnessed someone come back and tell him after over two years or more. I've seen this mower on Facebook and he sold it a long time ago, it's long gone. We just see it as a wasted post, we arnt getting any Info from it. And as far as I know, your the only one having a problem with it.

If you look closely this was actually lifted twice.
- I don't see issues with lifting a post as long you have good info to add or thank the poster about his great build, but this is almost 4 years old.
- Also there are great builds on here hidden simply because they are old and not revived (I've came across them only from google's picture search, and only that way found them) So i don't know what's worst.
But I agree with willis on this one tho, he just informed anyway. And this forum aint strict Angchor, not at all.

I'm glad that at least no one is counting me a bannable niusance over this. LOL

I don't really "have a problem" with it. I guess the point that I am trying to make... is thus made in a different way than I intended.

It is easy to look at what I have written, and think I must be all upset over this. I am not.

I have written what I have written because I like you guys. I care. And I am trying to be helpful.

The point is that perception is, a lot of the time, quite different from reality. But that perception, IS truth, to the perciever.

When I see an admonition, I know that what I personally know to be just someone who actually cares about the responsibility they have been given, and are trying to do the right thing... Can quite literally look to the recipient of the admonition... like they have just been slapped down. And just as easily taken personally, and used as cause and reason for either backlash, or for just leaving the forum, and never being a part of it again. Either option, is not good for the community.

Because of that, I have always taken the approach that when it comes to moderating... Less is usually more.

If I see a situation like the one we are discussing... I probably have exactly the same thoughts that any moderator here, does. For the same reasons.

I agree with every single one of you.

But because what I am looking at has not been done in a trolling way, or a spamming way, or a niusance way... I would look at it like... has this really made any big difference whatever, in any negative way, on the forum? No? Then why even mention it?

Leaving it be, hurt no one. But making an admonition about it can lead to the above mentioned 'cause for action' on the part of the admonished, because of their own perception of being 'slapped down'.

Less is more.

And sometimes a personal message will get the message to the person just as well, without them feeling like now they have been publically called out and slapped on the wrist. So now they have to respond publically. Etc...

~~~~~~~

I also have to agree... This forum isn't strict. I am not saying it is. In any way, shape or form. That is one of the reasons it is such a good community.

What I am saying is kind of like this... If this community is in a boat, on a river... If we are headed downstream... If there is no real need to paddle... And if you DO paddle, you get others wet, with your splashing.... Why paddle? Let the boat carry us. And those times when it IS necessary to paddle, well, people are going to get splashed, and there is no getting around that.

But it remains, if you don't have to paddle, and paddling gets others wet, whether you intended it or not... then why paddle?

~~~~~~~

And then there is the good point that TD just made. One that I wanted to make a while back, but forgot to add...

Twice now, old threads have been brought up, and I have been introduced to some really great builds... But those threads may never have appeared on my screen in any search I would have made. And I may never have gone that far back in "forum history", just to read the old threads.

So I am glad to have been reminded that there is gold in them thar old threads. And now I will be more likely to actually set aside the time, to maybe GO back and read some old threads... Just because I have no idea what wonders I may discover.

That might not have been the case had no one ever brought up an old thread...

~~~~~~~

Lastly... I am glad I found this forum. And I am glad to be a part of this community. I'll do my best to be a productive and helpful member of the community, for as long as I am here.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
