    New title new gifts forum event

    Today i was surprised to read about this new event introduced by our beloved t4f.
    The event could be quite lucrative for some active members of this forum, indeed... including myself

    Did t4f staff ever heared about spam/flooding (useless replies) on a forum?
    Today I've been overwhelmed by lots (i mean LOTS) of mostly useless comments on various threads (even on few already outdated ones as the corresponding one-time events are finished for soms time)
    The obvious result of this initiative - various people suddenly found their vocation as writers and started to comment on any thread (+1 being probable the shortest way to do it, so try it , in addition to lots of "thanks" or "cool" or whatsoever) just to get a higher rank/reward from their forum activity.
    Useful? No. Definitely. At least imho.
    Meaningful replies are given by the same, rather old, forum members who don't really care about some extra chips. it is the case when less is better..

    I was thinking exactly the same ... "Let's see how much spam will this generate" ... and it did generate lots of it, as expected.
    On the other hand counting the useful replies every month is next to impossible for all forum members.
    My guess is after everyone gets the number of comments needed for maximum awards this month, either the event will stop or the spam will diminish greatly

    "thanks" or "cool" only need to be prohibited now.

    Yes I also have the same concern about a spam. However a very good way how to reward activity on forum with extra few credits.
    Suddenly the forum becomed alive.. of course apart the seeasoned contributors/admins who always make this forum very enjoyable, and some critics like me who wonder about everything, what does/does not makes sense

    Good to know that I'm not the only one who consider this event to be wrong. I started to fear that i have a twisted optic and i consider to be flawed an outstanding event.. now I'm relieved

    On topic.. anyone with minimal management abilities know a simple rule: "you get what you reinforce"
    In the past, the forum prizes used to be granted for useful, relevant, interesting topics/replies/tips etc. And many older threads consists of mostly useful game related info.
    With this event, in less than 24 hours, the number of replies in different threads exploded. In this tempo, in few days we will see many threads with several pages filled in with "hello", "gracias", "bla-bla-bla" etc.

    Mr. T4f admin, please cancel this madness.
    On any forum it takes time to find useful bits of information in a haystack of replies. But now it will be few times more difficult to do it imho

    Arguable, more new forum members could lead to a more interesting exchange of opinions.
    Those several new members who had already left their footsteps in few dosens of threads could spread the word among their peers and even more new members will be attracted. Nothing bad so far..
    But please, mr tf4 admin, start a distinct thread just for spam. And allow those bounty hunters to fill it up page after page after page.. just don't flood the useful ones, please.
