A section full of what amounts to spam :P

(note your post count when accessing, if the limit's not 1k it's prolly still something pretty high)

All spammed messages/posts go there? Or you can spam the hell out of it?

Its used to be where you could post things that would be considered spam but it got closed because it took up too large a percent of the sites posts

It's pointless stuff, that is more spammy than humor and jokes, but it's limited to higher post count users and is locked up whenever its postcount is higher than 10% of the entire board, to ensure it doesn't drain activity from more quality discussion sections such as calc/computer/gaming/music stuff.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

you can still view it but you cant post there.
DJ can you still post in that one topic?

I have ~15% of my posts on that board(well actually probably less since it doesnt count towards total post count)

Meh I think it would be best to do what DJ suggested at one point and block a user from spam if they have more then 10% posts in the board.

yeah but It would improve the site by forcing people to make more constructive posts

I think I still can post in the topic. It seems to be an SMF glitch. The topic kept its permissions from its previous section.

But yeah I remember last Spring or in 2006-07 where there were days where 90% of the forum activity was in spam >.<. It made it hard to browse the new posts list and it was kinda disappointing when I saw there was a 400-post day only to realize about 350 were in spam >.<. That also gave a bad reputation to Omni sometimes.

yeah I think quality posts should be emphasized. At the very least someone should not have there top number of posts in a non constructive board like spam(looks at sorunome) or humor

At least, however, Sorunome doesn't have like 0 posts outside intro/spam/humor and 100 in there. O.O (the akward moment when a 0-post user's post rating is different than 0)
