What is the point of having the 3 posts in a row restriction. This and the 10 character minimum in PMs. I really don’t understand why either need to exist.
The 3 posts in a row restriction is probably in place to prevent spammers, but one can still spam with 3 posts, and some people will run into this limit and won’t be able to post. For example, in the thread "Robots in Terrihill: Werewolf Game 3.0, I have 2 posts in a row that address two different things, and were written at two different times. If everyone follows the rules properly and there isn’t any confusion, 2020-05-25T16:00:00Z when the next day phase begins, I would like to post two posts. First, a post about the story and what happened during the night phase. Second, a voting poll in another post. Part of the reason I like putting this in a seperate post is because I feel that at some point, posts feel stuffed, and like there is too much stuff in them if you try and add too much(anyone reading this, I am not asking you to break the rules and post during the night. Please do not do that).
The 10 character minimum in PMs is probably to make sure posts have actual content, but there are times that you can add content in a few letters, or sometimes I like to comment “hahaha” on posts, but I can’t because of this restriction. I then instead just comment “hahahahaha” so I can get the same point across and it will go through. Either something like that, or I will comment
<hide(spammed letters)>, which will make it so I my post looks the same, just gets more characters. An example of this is here:
This post actually has over 10 characters because of this. I have received a PM before that literally said “(just to make it 10 characters)” I personally don’t think that this restriction has a purpose. Often times you will get the same amount of content.
I don’t exactly understand the reasoning behind either of these restrictions. They have purposes, but they don’t exactly do a ton. I feel that they are more annoying than anything, but that might just be me.
I think we should either abolish or change these rules, maybe to 5 posts in a row instead of 3 for the first issue, or something that could increase as you trust level increases(and not mods only). I do think that we should abolish the 10 character limit though. The 10 character limit is the most pointless thing in my opinion. What does everyone else think about this?
