Shouldn't some of these status updates be posted in the appropriate threads so they can be debated? It seems sort of a cop-out to post there. Is this the intention of status updates?

I agree. Getting rid of the status update would be a good thing. Would force some of the posts back to some threads and would actually benefit the forums by that alone. Some thread participation is down simply because some have took it too the sidelines.

Something I have mentioned several times on the 'how to make the forums better' thread.

You're always free to toggle off seeing any status updates if you don't like to see them.

If I see them or not, it still takes away from thread participation. Actually, keep posting in the updates instead of the threads. I think I might actually prefer it that way.

No it doesn't. One can do both.

True. But if a member decides to post a few more real thread posts than normal, you seem to have an issue? And where did you decide to air the complaint? In the status update.

I won't complain about you sitting in the status updates anymore, if you stop complaining about Big Guy's amount of forum threads. Deal?

I think posting the last 9 thread topics was and is a bit excessive. Especially when those topics are getting minumal responses. That's my opinion. Others are free to disagree.

However the status updates IS A PART OF this forum. Also is a unique characteristic that should be expanded upon!

It was not pat of the original web design. When the site was upgraded, the plugin part for that was available, but only was enabled some time later. Overall it is a relatively new function to the site.

Participate or don't. Just don't complain about it from the sidelines if you chose not to participate.

Who made you the judge? I like the status updates.

I like the status updates.

particularly now that you've taken to trolling them (along with threads) where you purposely write something that has absolutely no relation to either your thread quote, the thread topic, the opening status update or discussions therein!

is there a limit on how many times a particular status update can be input? It seems everyone on this board, except one member, takes their shot and, depending on activity level, has their update displayed for the period of time before it "rolls off", subject to that activity level. One particular shady practices member here has, quite literally, put forward the exact same worded status update... now approaching, at least (as I've viewed)... 10 separate updates now. #abusiveShadyPractices

:lol: we need an official count tally as the same status update has been provided, once again: accepting to a count correction by the practitioner, I hereby register the official MLW count tally of that exact same status update @ 10 --- #abusiveShadyPractices

I'm tired of waldo's constant bitching and complaining. Waldo, if you don't like this forum, which seems to be the case, start your own.

Why are you trying to limit free expression? If you don't want to see his posts, then block him.
