I mean, whenever you post a topic, you're practically on a chopping block for a ban. It may not seem like much, but sometimes people want to speak their mind every now and then.

So my question to all you BBS regs is this: What makes you post here on a whim?

Sometimes people want to discuss things they can't with live people.

To ask questions, to gloat about something you did to rub in the faces of us newgrounders, to get people to feel sorry for you, to make people/yourself laugh, ect.

It's a forum, it's meant to be posted on.

Like i'm sure some mod could be a dick and consider this thread spam, but I consider it to be an intelligent conversation with multiple possible answers, which is the base of a good thread.

I'm usually really careful when I post a thread. Being flamed or banned is not fun.

I create topics when I'm grinding in a SNES RPG and the sheer boredom makes me think, "Hey, what would happen if...?" and then I post about it. I've recieved two bans for borderline-spam topics, had a few more deleted for being spammy, without a ban, but most of my topics get posted and reach about two pages. :) It's worth the risk if you care about the subject, because chances are, if you give a damn what you're posting about, it's not spam anyways.

I don't have an answer to your question.

But I have a question for you...

What made you post this one, it seems pretty useless.

Well, since I'm incredibly paranoid, I normally lurk for hours, and then post maybe once.

I fear of getting banned because of all those times when I had under 200 posts. Maybe the mods over-did it a bit?

Although, I will laugh if I get banned for this thread.

Well shit, I've had a few bans, big whoop? No.

We post to communicate, to help others, to get and give ideas. We also post because of humorous things.

It all comes down to 3 reasons for me:

1. Whenever I get an erection, I make a topic.

2. Whenever that leprechaun on my shoulder tells me to, I make a topic.

3. Whenever the president of nigeria calls me about winning 7 million dollars then he also tells me to make a topic.

Why, it's the magical Forum Faeries of course! The sprinkle Topic Dust on our keyboards and it's that which makes us post topics.

Humans are social, sentient, and intelligent beings. We crave knowledge and/or social interaction. And that is why anyone posts on the BBS.

It comes before the question, yet it kind of does.
You see, I actually wanted to know WHY they post what they post, not just why they post in general.

I just like putting my two pennies in, and I like the club section as people are a bit more level headed in there.

I only ever get banned if I post in a spam thread without realising it's a spam thread or if it's Poozy that locks the thread and he happened to see my ever so slighty irrelevant post.

When ever I have something to say. My antisocial syndromes are often what gets me banned in posts, I don't usually get banned when creating a topic because I am lateral & serious.

I goes kinda like this:

We don't post on a whim because we want want to talk about anything.

We post to see if we can get away with it!

I've never actually made any topics. I'm not afraid of a ban (I've never actually been banned I don't think), but I just don't have any need to complain/ tell strangers stuff about my personal life in a forum. I like to give my opinions and share my experiences and help other's out by posting in their topics, I just don't feel the need to make my own that's all.
