    This can't work, what if what we have to say is less than 70 words? What about the simple, short and quality posts? I mean in most of the threads there are right now, I can sum up what I have to say in about 2-3 short sentences that have quality for topics. If it doesn't reach the 70 words, then does mean I can't post it? Or should I just post words that don't matter with the topic of the thread just to reach the 70 word count?
    You should stress quality not quantity.

    Star Topology is a method (topology) of networking. It's simplest form is a network containing a central hub, switch, or server (central node)that all devices are connected to that directs the the network traffic. The central node is passive. This is the most reliable topology of networking, as if one node (other than the central) fails then the rest of the network is unaffected.

    well this should lead to fun times, i need something to stifle my spam. although if this gets too tough i think most people will just end up not posting. a week trial is a interesting concept, its alot longer than it seems, since some people (for example ME) are here and posting shit 16 hours a day. i wonder if this rule also applies to threadstarts. could get really annoying to have a simple poll question and then need to waste time posting random crap just to fill up the 70 word limit (like im doing now)

    My gosh.. so many complaints.

    *getting frusturated over here*

    Hmr… then, if we do not try this little experiment, I would like to make it perfectly clear that I do not want to hear any gees, that newbie is such a spammer. She/he cannot make posts that are long mostly because YOU YOURSELF could not for ONE WEEK [okay, not even ONE FRIGGIN HOUR] go with making decent long posts.

    Aka. No hypocrites.

    Seriously, 70 words is barely a paragraph!

    I agree, CPR, but I criticized spammers because of the quality of their posts. It's one thing to have a short post, but it's another to have a short post that is completely pointless and does not need to be made - and I'm not going to mention names, but I've seen quite a few of those. And that was what I was objecting to. =P

    It may be a good idea, and it may not. Yes, 70 words would imply that the person has a whole idea to develop, rather than just saying a simple idea, but; what if all what the person wrote is useless?

    I've seen posts in the Naruto section that are long, and just because of their lenght, they are not decent posts. Actually they are even worse, they are a developed useless idea. Which means that not only you had to read to something useless, but that such useless information, came in a long post.

    I understand that there are discussions that deserve long and well thought posts, but what about the funny threads? The funny threads are there to be funny, not serious. Sometimes short sentences are used in that kind of threads, like short commentaries which end up being funny. Having to write 70 words in those case may take most of the fun. At least that's what I think, I wouldn't know if that indeed would happen.

    Also, not everyone that makes short posts are considered a spammer. Such members can come up with a simple idea (that can be serious or funny, therefore useful, in a way), and people like that kind of things. If someone has a good, yet simple idea, the fact that has to write 70 words may discourage that person from posting, since it may end up be bothersome, because all what that person wants to do is to share its idea, or commentary.

    Anyways, you're the mod, and if you think that this has to be applied, then I trust your judgment.

    PS: Luck with your other finals, cat. ^_^
