My personal opinion is that we should just do away with the spam section altogether. I don't think it really adds much to the site.
I think it allows some more freedom to members. Elsewhere some people can't be random at all sometimes because they might get told to not spam, while you can do it in the Randomness section.
Ah, okay I see where you're coming from; I'm definitely in favor of user freedom. Although, there are definitely other places where people can be random and spam on the Internet, so it's not like Omnimaga is their only option.

Yeah true. I just feel like there should be a section here for it, although there are still restrictions. If it takes too much place in Omnimaga activity, like everyone only posting there and not elsewhere, I can temporary close that section. Currently it closes when its content reaches at least 10% of the entire board content. (excluding the old board archive)

I think one reason that there are serious topics being postednin Randomness is because only it and Introductions are invisible to guests, so to aleviate this, there needs to be a new board for serious discussions that are invisible to guests, or maybe a checkbox on the new topic page toggling the thread's visibility to outsiders.
In other news, Frey continues kicking unprecedented levels of ass.

Yeah the spam section/randomness were also for such topics. I guess in the future there could be a special board for those. Just as long as it's not over-used, since then the rest of the board would look inactive to guests.

By the way not only the spam section is invisible to guests, but it's also invisible to any member under 100 posts. (This was to make sure people won't sign up only for the spam section)
