Enough is enough, come in here and one person is allowed to spam the entire board with a title and a jpeg and thats it no body, no info, nothing useful at all.

Sad.

You want to ban something just because you dont like it. I think you wandered into the wrong group my friend. Things are real simple here, just dont click on it. I really enjoy the pics. I have all confidence the moderators would have stepped in by now if it were a problem. Have a fun day.

Agreed, it probably wasn't intentional, but if you click on the outdoor survival and camping section, about 80% of the posts are those nonsense posts NW whatever posted. He should just have one thread with all that "stuff" in it, so if someone comes to this section for its intended purpose, they can, without wading through a mountain of spam threads.

Those "rule" threads have more useful info in them than half of the others on here. I enjoy the comic relief.

It could just be combined though. If we all just start posting 1 picture threads without generally any content in the post, this place will be useless very fast.

So where is that much valued and useful info you are seeking found in this thread? Nowhere! so we have a a zip useful content thread created to complain about threads that contain a bit of humor. Humor is a great teaching aid BTW...


If you think NW Guy is out of line take it up with the mods in the grievance section, perhaps you've already have and they shut you down.


So either you are attempting to steer traffic towards those threads or you just like to complain. I'm leaning towards you just like to complain, which is okay I understand...LOL

Regardless...those things COULD be combined into one thread, and probably should be.

Sure they could be combined, as to why they are not who knows?


Could the mods combine them into one? I'm pretty sure they could.


It's their bandwidth, their call.


Bring it to the mods attention and let it go...

ACTUALLY....
Each one is good information that should be considered in perpetration of gong into the deep or other recreation activities off the beaten track... with hopefully a little humor thrown in. And several of them has developed interesting responses on the topics.

Cumulatively, there have been over 8200 hits on the CAMPING RULE posts..so I think that is indicative of someone liking or enjoying or reading them. The format is pretty simple, if people did not like them I do not believe the number of views would be so many.

As for clogging the board..There are posts still on the front page that are weeks old since people responding to them. It seems there is a lot of room for "new stuff". Make of that what you will.

As for me.. I am glad for a place like this and am just trying to contribute as a way of showing thanks.

NW--thank you for taking the time to share the pretty pix/nice humor

NW has obviously put some time/effort/thought into these, which has been a nice reminder of why some of us come here This series of threads has also been free of the usual fighting, put-downs, and name-calling that seems to have mushroomed throughout the whole site lately, and a good reminder of the [theoretically] shared general goal of people coming to this site.

Regardless of whether or not these threads area appreciated, they're a whole lot better than people resurrecting years-old necro/zombie threads, which is really, really annoying and aggravating after reading through only to discover......

Post on, NW, post on

it doesn't bother me much, but as a survivor of the severe moderation years here, I know that anyone generating a bunch of low content threads would be given a vacation for being a "thread starting machine".

There is no reason that said content could not be confined to a single thread labelled "Camping rules". The reason the forum has special sections about survival topics is to enable someone wanting to learn about a topic to go to that section and find useful or interesting threads.

If they instead find a bunch of threads with a photo shopped picture of a dozen bears in a tree or whatever, they will conclude we are just another facebook. Facebook gets lots of traffic, so by the OP's logic, they must be a valuable survival forum.

We discuss lots of non-survival stuff as well, but it is in other parts of the forum. General chat, darkside, political section, conspiracy section.

If you call up a section with a serious survival title, like wilderness survival, or first aid, you don't want to be accosted by hundreds of cat meme threads and threads of bears in trees.

Just the all caps in the title guarantees most won't bother looking in any case.

This reminds me of an old adage....You can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all the people all the time.
Time to saddle up and press on...

Yep. They are sad.

But so what?

He wants to be sad....he should be able to....doesn't hurt anyone but himself.

And as long as he is the only one doing it the forum is pulled down too much by them. Hopefully it doesn't become a trend but given how generally ignored they are by everyone I'm not too worried. Just ignore them and maybe they will go away.

And he is a good poster in general other than this habit.

IS "generally ignored" like your definition on "minor impact" on the vehicle thread?

8200+ looks is a strange definition of "generally ignored."
as for sad... what do you really think????

Not strange at all. You seem to average well less than 500 views per post, its hard to make a thread with fewer than that here. Relatively speaking, nobody cares. There is nothing about them that justifies a separate post per musing. I mean, this rather silly post itself is on par with one of your rules. (not that I think views are really a mark of importance or not)


But like I said. Who cares? I don't think there is an bar that has to be passed to official justify anything. Do what you want. You aren't hurting anybody except possibly yourself.
