(Yo, mods I saw a few threads that touched up on the same thing, but this is more of a thread for venting hate, so keep that in mind before you decide to lock it. )
My name is Decoy Elite, and I hate things. Today I'm going to tell you all about something I hate, because this is the internet and I'm an angry person.
I hate the post limit for new users on this site, now don't get me wrong I understand why it's there, I get that it's something this site "needs", I know it's purpose. My problem is that it totally doesn't fulfill it's purpose. For those not in the know, who no doubt can't post because they've run out for the day, the post limit wasn't always here, it was enacted to take care of the problem of people making accounts and spamming ads all over the site. It it did that at first. But spammers find a way, and well now you might notice a lot more spam threads. Yeah it's literally a post limit, not a thread limit, so all the spammers do is just make threads, which in retrospect is a lot more annoying than someone just spamming posts, because it's harder to ignore.
But hey, why should I care? The post limit doesn't effect me, right? Well it kind of does, because I use the RPG section, which means I like to make alternate accounts(statistically speaking if you have an it's either for RPGs or you're Spike). So when I get this new account I kinda want to use it, you know for the RPGs I do? Yeah, well the post limit kind of takes a nice big deuce all over that, because now I have to wait at least 3 days to post as much as I want. And seriously just 5 posts? Why not at least a number that would allow someone to actually hang out on the site for a nice amount of time, get acclimated.
At this point it feels like a feature that only exists as incentive to buy premium accounts, which can't be right because seriously what kind of person would buy an account before actually getting used to the site? Certainly not someone using an alt, well a normal person using an alt(you exceptions know who you are). I just don't get the post limit, and maybe that's the real reason it bugs me so much. If it felt useful, or even a little necessary, maybe I wouldn't be ready to make a 3 paragraph blog about why I hate it. But for now, I hate the post limit and if you're reading this then you probably do too.
