How's the post padding over here????
« on: June 9, 2003, 04:53 PM »
Ok so this is my first time here and I decided to register. I have to ask though how are the rules for post padding???? Several longtime summers were alienated by the closing of the Post Count Post threads, and I want to see what it's like over here.

I also see that alot of the people who vocied their opinion about not liking post padders are here, since you all got what you wanted, why are you here now???? What forced you to abandon the 'scum??

If no one beats me to replying, there really is no post padding allowed here.  There was briefly a word association thread, but it was closed.  I'd say that's a pretty strong message from the outset, n'est pa?

Either way, welcome aboard dear Lady.

adding via edit:  The policy, IMO, is fair, given that it has been thus from the outset, more or less, as opposed to changing rules halfway through.  The mods here (while not implying anything about anywhere else) are open, communicative and up front in their responses.  You will know where you stand and why they suggest that it is so.

So far, I haven’t seen a lot of post padding, but I’ve only been here a few days.

I haven’t actually managed to give up RS, so I’m really being unfaithful to both boards  ;) .

And welcome to JD, LJ   :)

Welcome to JediDefender, Lady Jaye.  Glad you decided to check us out!

I have to ask though how are the rules for post padding????

Well, simply put - we generally don't do it here.  JD is more about having some interesting and intelligent conversation about things, be they Star Wars or otherwise.  That said, we're all good friends here, and of course there's some random chit-chat and banter that goes on between folks in various threads, which is perfectly fine.  But we long ago prided ourselves in creating a forum community and environment here that is different than that at other sites, and keeping "post padding" to a minimum was definitely one of our goals, and most, if not all, of our member's have greatly appreciated that.

So check out our boards here, and see if this is what you're interested in LJ.  Feel free to drop any of the staff a line if you've got any questions, comments, or suggestions on anything...

Lady Jaye, welcoem to JD.

I'm glad that there is a no post padding rule here.........I never did see the point in post padding.......after all....if you're just posting to build post count numbers then I really don't see the point...and chances are the post won't contain a much thought out response anyways.

I'm REALLY happy with how things are run here......JD is a tight knit group of FRIENDS..........

If this is what you're loking for too then welcome aboard  8)

Hey Lady Jaye! Glad you decided to stop by. Hope you decide to stay. I hear there might be some Joe collectors afoot in these parts.
Post sober.

I was "let go", so to speak. I was on my way out anyway, especially after the quality going downhill, and GNT's superiority complex, plus the newbie influx, politics, religion, and trolls. It became to much to handle.

JD is heaven.. :-*

Welcome to the JD community. A community where mindless drivel, post padding, and flame-retardant pajamas don't exsist. Hell, even the carded and loose folks get along here.;D You are so gonna love it.
