Are Grats threads ok?

  1. Yeah! Grats threads are great! (and are a nice way to raise my postcount :p )

  2. Horrible! Banish them!

  3. I don't mind, as long as it's above RR5

  4. Other (please elaborate in a post)

    looking down the list I see that a big % are grats threads again, a number that will only continue to rise when the rest of BW moves over. I know a lot of you concider it spam while another part seems to love them. what're your oppinions on them? should me allow to let them be posted, limited them, or banish them alltogether?

    oh, and please keep any discussion civilized. flames will be removed :)

    imo its ok if ppl are above rr5, or even sa rr7.. becuase thats some just dont do, it take some time :) but thats imo

    old.Osy No longer scrounging, still a bastard.

    This kind of threads were fun, back in 2002. Back then, not many people were over rr5, and going beyond that point was quite an achievement.

    It's only natural that these threads multiplied, as the server population matured. I for one, am not against them. It helps build the feeling of community, everybody's 10 minutes of fame, if you like. As for mixing the concept of SPAM with this kind of threads, maybe you're right, but spamers take advantage of any other threads out there.

    I say enforce the anti-spam policy better, by 2x warning, then Ban. But let people enjoy their achievement.

    Nooooo I want my grats thread when I finally ding RR 5 :p

    No seriously grats threads are ok as long as they are RR 5 or upwards...

    RR7 is a bit too high imo not everyone is in a rvr guild but still play well and deserve the small reward a grats thread is...

    Best thing to do is to make more threads about other stuff thats more important anyway (more advice, real discussions, less whine...) to all people (pve or pvp) .

    Been playing this game for over a year now and I still learn new things everyday so pass the knowledge :)

    Gratz threads are a must!!

    It's hard work and it's great to let people know you're happy for them and to encourage them to keep going :)

    Yes grtz post is important...u ding new rr and its great to see some gratz tbh.
    But ofcourse rr5 and above.
  10. Tareregion

    Tareregion Fledgling Freddie

    Aye, i do agree with what is said, Gratz are important. But I´d limit it for RR7 and above. (Although RR6 is way harder for a stealther than a fotm wtfpwnxDDD savage, so dunno about that, perhaps stealthers=rr6?)
  11. MesS°

    As a minimum rr7, or mayB in the 3 realm specific forums...
  12. Belsameth

    yes, I agree. it became a free card to spam tho. a tollerated +1 so you will. on top of that it doesn't make the RVR forum all that interesting if 90% is grats RRX, 8 % is stealther or FOTM whine and only 2% is actually quality posting material.

    it's your board tho, so that's why I put up this poll, instead of just deleting em all :p
  13. Ele

    Just make a 'Grats' topic for each server imo...then those that want to read it can do :)

    Well i gues many use it to increase post count.
    Some say gratz coz they maen gratz.
    No need for banning immo just skip the thread if you dont like it.
    voted other..

    Like people said, it's nice to see a gratz if you want to read it. If you see a thread entitled "Gratz Bob, RRx" then you can read it or not - it's up to you.

    And with postcounts disabled now, and Forum titles all merged together, there isn't a need for post farming.

    So - allow gratz threads - like ele said, make a single sticky under each server.

    Now the "Ding XX irl" are the ones that annoy me... :D

    I wasn't going that far actually.
    fact is tho that the few good posts get bumped down to page 2 because of em, and thus lost to the majority that don't refresh each 5 minutes :p

    so far it looks like it's heading in the RR5+ direction tho, which seems like a fair compromise...

    I realy dont mind those threads, wat i do mind is when some one use it to flame the one.

    It's nice aslong it aint for sub RR4.
    RR4 is more or less the beginning of decent RR so np to congrats on it.

    No grats thread should be allowed below rr6.
    Ban the user posting them, name and shame. :-D
    J/K.. RR6 should be a limit, in my opinion.. but then again, I'm just a mere fotm shaman.
  21. Loxleyhood

    RR7. Today anything less isn't really worth blowing steam about.

    Its true.. too many grats threads.. and too much spam within them :(

    I feel fine ifjust people in /gu says grats to me for getting some rank/lvl

  25. Jox

    Jox Fledgling Freddie

    Gratz posts are ok if;

    you play a "regular" class and dings rr 7+.

    or play sb/hunter and dings rr 1L1+

    Gratz posts are NOT ok if;

    you play infil/mincer :p

    everyone likes a small "grats" now and then, from RR5+ tho imo

    That would be nice. I don't mind a grats thread, but these things are taking over the entire RvR forum.
  28. jakob

    jakob Fledgling Freddie

    If we can't rid of them, I think it should be for RR7 and upwards
