Thumbs down What the DCT IS and IS NOT For..

Hello everybody

I've seen people say this numerous times.
"I got my Rainbows yesterday, and at this rate of posting, I'll get my Spinny by the end of the week!" or something along the lines of Reputation, or post count/rainbows/spinnies/etc.

And what I've noticed is that these people that do this make hundreds of posts on the DCT each day. I'm not saying that it's bad for you to post on the DCT. I (and probably others) just think that the DCT is not for getting a higher rank.

The DCT (Daily Chat Thread) is a quick way of talking to friends and meeting new people. That's all it's for. Every day, a moderator or administrator is kind enough to make a thread with a few bits of information about what goes on, on that day. The members take it from there and talk about whatever they want.

The DCT is not for getting higher ranks. I'm pretty sure it's not allowed for you to post just so you can get those Rainbows, or that Spinny you've been dreaming of. Posts on the DCT are fluff, just so you know. So if you make hundreds of posts on the DCT, it means nothing, because really, you didn't help anybody out, you didn't make any effort into your post, you might have just said an "LOL!" or "Haha that's so weird.." just to get that one extra post. If you're one of those people who post on the DCT for any of the reasons above...you didn't earn what you got. I'm not trying to be mean, but that's the truth.

However, I don't find anything wrong with people being excited saying "OMG 40 more posts until I get my spinny!!!" because well you can see the excitement. But this is not okay if you say that in every post. You're either trying to get more posts to get to that spinny, or just spamming for no good reason.

And again, I'm not saying that it's bad to post on the DCT. Actually I think it's cool to have one. But I'm comparing those who work hard to make their posts right and full of detail, to those who have one word answers. Those with the detail deserve their rank. Those who have nothing in their posts..well..you don't deserve it.



Thanks for your time...I just needed to vent a little.

I agree 100%! I'm sick of seeing people posting things like "56 posts until my first spinny," or "OH NO! I haven't gotten any rep points today!" There's so many fluff posts, it's just terrible sometimes. I like going to the DCT to have actually conversations, not fluff. Great thread!

Rep if I can give you any! I agree. Theirs some people who come on the DCT and just say "I need posts!" and all of their post's are like "sljdsakrhdawehr47327" or something -.-. Great thread!

EDIT: Also,some people are like "It's been half an hour and I STILL haven't gotten any rep . . .". I mean,honestly the DCT was meant for chatting,not post count and rep. Once again,great thread!

Thank you!
The DCT is for chatting with friends, not focusing on getting your posts. Why, I only got about say three hundred-fifty of my nearly twelve thousand posts on the DCT.

Reppers.

I agree and don't agree. I deffinately agree when you say that the DCT is NOT for getting higher ranks. That is pretty low to do that. I think it is OK that people say 56 posts to spinny! Because they are excited - just there is a better way to do it - not by spamming and fluffing.

Thanks you guys

Ebaday- You do have a point. I mean I too understand somebody being excited to get something, so it would be alright to say something like that, but not to just get more rep or more posts by saying that every time.

I totally agree. I barely EVER post on the DCT, unless it is a cool topic and I want to comment on it.

Some people only post there to GET posts or reps etc. I personally adore this thread because, well, you have confidence to post something like this, because lets say a DCT lover comes walking into the thread and says: "The DCT is way fun and you don't know what you're missing" And so on.


Very VERY EXCELLENT thread.
Reppiez to you.

I agree completely! I don't really ever use the DCT too much, unless I'm having a really boring day, but I hate the thought that people would abuse it just to get higher ranking.

Spinnies/rep boxes aren't everything. WI is about having a good time, not one big popularity contest.

GREAT THREAD.
