Default (Reserved)...No, please! *Words in Green are Edited!*

Hello everybody. I hope all is well!

I haven't seen this going on a lot, I have to admit, but sometimes it really bugs me when it happens.
Say you're in the Contest area of the Forum. And there..there's an art contest, to see who can draw the best pony (this is a random scenario!). But there is only 1 spot left!
So you go and draw the best pony you've ever drew in your life! And you see that nobody has posted yet, and you can be first! You run to get your camera and post it..I mean, you're really fast at doing this, it'll take two seconds! Well, you're just uploading it, and ready to post your pony, and nobody has posted yet so you can be in the contest!

But you are upset, because right when you post, you get another post in front of you that says, '(reserved for entry)'. So then, you can't enter!

Now, now that person can take all the time in the world to make that pony, knowing that they reserved the post! So now you're really upset, because you really had your mind set on getting into that contest, but was bumped for a reserved post!

I would be sad about that! And, I don't think that this should be allowed! With the exception of the Housez area! Isn't that still considered Spam? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!

I don't think people should be allowed to do this, unless of course, they are the original owner of the thread. Often times, people will make posts like that if they own the thread to reserve it so they can put all the entries into one post after.

WhiteTerrier- Right, unless they're the owner, reserving shouldn't be allowed!
MadisonDance86- Thanks!
January (may I call you that?)- Yeah! It's kinda rude in my opinion!

Thanks for posting!

I see what you mean.
But, I think that an exception would be WW House threads.
House threads, because if I am correct, there is a limit to how many pictures you can put on one post. So, if they had more pictures, they would need more posts reserved for more pictures. Or maybe it's a story thread, or an avvie/siggy thread, so they can put more graphics, or more chapters of their story, because if I am correct, there is also a maximum number of characters per post...(Not sure though)

Reserving posts is only allowed if you're a an owner of the thread. You can only reserve a post for future announcements for Contests, Clubs, Houses, etc.

100% agreed

Sometimes people don't even go back to their reserved posts, though most of them do. If you see one, flag it for a mod or admin if it isn't allowed.

I don't think people should be able to do this, unless it's the owner of the thread. I mean, it is spam, I think. And the thing with the 'reserved' for even the owner is that it'll get merged, unless it's a Insider Insider Member.
Reserving spots expecially isn't good when you're in contests. Like what you said with the pony thing. If you were about to upload and there were 2 spots left. One person uploaded their pony picture and then someone posted 'reserved.' Well then you can't do that. Because someone took up that next spot and you can't be in the contest due to the fact that you weren't 15th poster... That would stink! :/
This is a very good point!
