      You don't agree there needs to be a certain amount of measure and taste, for these to remain funny and not drown out the actual useful content? And who do we contact for a second opinion then, @SysAdmin?

      Furthermore there are rules that apply to e.g. signatures, for them not to be annoying and distracting:

      Signatures longer than most of your posts that fill significant portions of our screens. It should not be more than two lines, nor should it be distracting.

      But a flood of posts like these in a general discussion thread
      https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2158506/#Comment_2158506
      https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2158512/#Comment_2158512

      I get it. You don't like me. I can still get by without you enjoying my posts. However, calling upon the moderators' moderator may very well be your undoing. May your beheading be swift and successful with the first attempt.

      I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

      This has nothing to do with any particular user, if you note the posts I linked to are not just yours. IMO some standard needs to be developed, and while personally I'd go for a complete forum engine level ban of animated images, if others like those, perhaps a "maximum one per post" limit can be considered?

      I appointed a team of people who do not always agree with me and made no requests or demands that they agree with me. They are empowered to do what they feel is right. You are welcome to get opinions from any of them.

      I just think you're being overly sensitive for someone who has stated, multiple times, that your appreciation for LET often centers around not being overly moderated.

      Sorry, but it doesn't make a good day seeing a place that I like and enjoy since 2011 being over-flooded with junk and noise in every thread, and rapidly going down in quality while people who are supposed to watch over this just cheering and not trying to stop that. If you want to discuss then let's continue in the corresponding thread: https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2158827/#Comment_2158827

      In my opinion the quality has increased. We treat everyone as if we have known them for years, we throw shit and expect it back, we're here to have fun and learn from each other. If that's not a community I don't know what is.

      I'm sad that you think otherwise, you've contributed a decent amount to the community and I would want to address your concerns before they reach critical mass.

      I assess each gif post I see and they are normally in context. If a limit were to be set of a max per post how many would you think? I'd go with three if we were to set a limit.

      Nope, the GIF issue is a recent thing. There has never been this amount of tasteless GIF junk en masse across threads, not at any point in time since 2011. Still I would not want to pinpoint it to any of the recently registered users even though that might be justified in some cases.

      Looks good to you, seriously? And when an entire thread is hijacked by a flood of these, do you honestly believe stuff like this belongs anywhere but to the "Cest Pit"? Even the "Offtopic" category has never been down to this level of noise, on the contrary here on LET you could find some of the best and most insightful "Offtopic" discussions on certain subjects.

      It is true that @spirit would delete posts that were images only if not screenshots relevant to the discussion, but he's been gone for quite some time.

      I'm a bit curious if you could expand on why this bothers you and reduces your quality of experience on the site? I mean I know you can scroll past them, and you know an entire thread hijacked by a bunch of memes would obviously be a different scenario than these examples. it seems like there's a deeper issue that maybe we're not hearing, and I would appreciate if you could give us some insight into that.

      Honestly I don't see it as noise. I don't look at all posts, takes less than a second to see if you want it to take your attention.

      We aren't a mailing list where everything goes to your inbox with a alert, you have a choice about what you see.

    • NekkiNekki Moderator

      I agree with @rm_ that the majority of gifs that get posted aren't funny, interesting, or in any way worth the data transfer, but I don't see enough of them for me to care too much.

      Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

      Harsh, I have not made any secret that I don't think he is the best fit however just as I can disagree with Jarland the Administrator it has absolutely no bearing on Jarland as a friend, the two are quite separate.

      In the same manner I am sure that Ishaq is a good guy overall.

      I guess I can separate the two elements, many can't.

      I snuck it into the White Hat section a while back:

      I like the "put it in a shitty place nobody looks at, and no rules" idea. My reflex was thinking @Amitz was bored with letting Jarland get all the scammers, and he was looking for a way to get more scammers in here. LET is already part of some peoples SEO strategy.

      The thread in question (removed in the meantime) was posted in Off-Topic, which is not indexed as far as I know. Well, I guess that the whole discussion is a bit pointless. At least the more I think about it. We seldom have cases that are that borderline. Most are plain spamming. Let's see if the problem turns up more often in future. Too many rules are bad, imho.

      I'd say follow same path to request approval to post offers, and then make it clear what you're offering and why this is a good place to market it.
