As a prior forum owner, and now solely a poster, there are a few things that I have seen, and they just grind my gears. This is coming from a fellow poster, not a forum owner on the list. 1. DO NOT say in your introduction or anywhere else you are being paid to post. For one, you are not. You are earning points for posting, but do not say that either. As a poster, our role is to help the forums we are posting on, not just earning points. If that is the way you play it, Postloop will not work the way it is designed. I for one would not appreciate anyone stating this on my forum. 2. DO NOT post your referral links on every board you go to. I have seen a few just paste their referral links in threads and signatures, all spammied up with referral links. You are earning points for your posts. If you posted referral links while making my point count go down, I know where your heart is, and it is solely on you, not helping the forum. 3. DO NOT post one-liners on dead boards just to get points no one will notice. Sure, I have posted on boards that look dead, but they were the same quality posts I would have placed on another forum. That forum may be struggling, and those few posts may be what encourages that user to utilize Postloop further, to help save it. As a fellow poster who tries to give decent quality posts, I find this to be lazy, and disrespectful to the forum owner, fellow posters, and to Postloop. 4. DO NOT post the same thread in every forum you are subscribed to. Yes, I have posted the same thread into 2 forums on here at the very beginning, and got called out on it. I did it once. Some of my posts are very similar to posts on other forums here, but it is bound to happen eventually. Don't cheat the system by copy-pasting topics and replies to half a dozen forums. 5. (Trombones13) DO NOT ask to be rated as soon as you have made five posts. Forum owners get five points for rating you as it is, so there's incentive for us to do so as well, but asking for it as soon as you've made five posts (regardless of whether you claim you're sticking around) puts you in a bad light, as if you're only there to get points and go. Keep in mind that doing so only harms your image and makes it less likely that you'll get a good rating. Instead, continue to make good posts on the forum (going past the five-post minimum) and perhaps bring up the rating later, once you're a more established and integrated member of the forum. 6. Actually participate in the community. Add a thing or two to your profile, upload an avatar, show an interest in the forum itself, and maybe add a non-advertising signature. If you actually look like a member of the site and blend in well, you contribute more to the board than just content, you help create atmosphere. I for one appreciate the work forum owners put in to creating a successful forum, and as a forum owner, I know what kind of work it takes. As a poster, I find a few users completely disrespectful, and hope you earn nothing. You are not helping the forums you are posting at, which does not help Postloop. I for one love Postloop. It is by far the best Post Exchange system out there. I want it to work, and if you are only in it for the pennies, then please, get out. These are only things I have noticed since I have been on this morning, and I know there are more. But for now, this is my say.
