149 posts left. Stop failing.

You could even see a counter telling you how many posts you have left.
Like cell phones, you can go over but you'd be bitting into next month's posts.

If someone can make over n number of posts a month that are valid, non-rule-breaking posts, why shouldn't they be allowed to?

The idea is not that bad, accept that 150 posts is not much. I mean I'm only here for about a month, I do not post that much and even I have 150+ posts, so make that 250 or something

Yes, exept that that's only within one topic, you can post in 100 different topics at the same time, but only 4 posts within each topic every 30 minutes. So it's no biggie, I've only gotten that message about 5 times or so through my whole time here.

I was one of them. I know, you don't post for numbers, you post because you have absolutely nothing better to do. You think fast, and reply fast too.

Damn straight! What the hell else am I gonna do with my time?
Get a girlfriend? No thanks, I'm afraid of girls.
Get a job? No thanks, I'm afraid of work.

So yeah, thanks for the offer, Hulk, but I think I'll continue to post however much I feel like posting.

A lot of you seem threatened, why? In the end your experience will be better. Smarter, funnier, more interesting topics for you to enjoy.

150 is 5 a day. You would be hit by your own rule because you have an average of 6.687 a day. And people who want to make a sig thread would be disables within the first 10 days of a month. Meaning they can't post for another 20 days because they were so friendly for offering sigs.

Sorry, but that will never work.

Haha, you think this idea will work? I don think so. Even if this rule was up in the stickied thread, Noobs will not even look at it and start spamming.

150 posts per month are a good number to start with.
Think of them as minutes on a cell phone.

If you're banned your "minutes" are cut in half.
(remaining # left / 2)

its a nice idea but imposible to enforce because people will just abuse alt's excessively in a situation like that.

No. I mean I agree that quantity doesn't equal quality, but what reason would you have to limit it? In theory the more people post the more quality posts are made, same goes for sucky posts, but that's why they implemented the mod system.

Mods + Admins would need an unlimited # of posts to do their jobs.

p.s. Posting is part of my duty now, not just a hobby. WoW.

do we get rollover posts... say if I have 50 left and the new month starts, does that mean I get 200 posts for that month?

Are you serious? 500, what are you, a Peq?

Sig topics suck major ass. They belong in the C&C section. Just because you made a new sig you deem it worthy of its own topic? Ninja plz.

search, find, realize it's satire.
