Just a quick note, I've noticed ALOT of star farming on this forum. . . I don't mean to be the wet blanket, but here on its not looked at very highly!

Please make sure your posts have some substance and intrest to it, if you want to talk to someone directly, PM them - or use ICQ, MSN, AOL, MESSENGER!

Don't waste the forum space with nonsense!

Please stop the Star Farming - - - -

Here is some information about stars if you are unaware:

Stars are awarded based on the number of comments you post:
awarded after 50 comments
awarded after 250 comments
awarded after 500 comments
awarded after 1000 comments
awarded after 5000 comments

You're all set to start collecting stars! Just participate by posting comments.

Tip: Spamming or flooding a forum with senseless comments solely to obtain more stars is highly frowned upon! This is called star farming and may result in a ban and a loss of your stars. Informative or humorous comments are appreciated by all.

Thank you

Thanks so much! This star farming is getting incredibly annoying. What's the big deal if you have a star or not anyway??? I don't get it, it's just a star people.

Please do not star farm. I've already removed comments/stars and banned two people for abusing their posting privileges by star farming. Thanks for posting this, Joey. I've made it sticky.

Freaky Vibes,
I'd like to agree with you that most people don't do it to gain stars, but certain people who post on the disco boards - they know who they are because they had temporary bans - did do just that, post to get stars.

Star Farming seems to happen more on the disco forums than anywhere else, its a sorry fact - but still a fact.

People, like myself, enjoy the Hot! forum - and when people post nonsense it makes the Hot! board redundant.

UR right, I am a parent to a Disco dancer, and there is a lot of star farming on the Disco board "WHICH MAKES THE REST OF US LOOK BAD" so please stop it.

I have people posting messages saying they are intrested in a suit for sale"pls sent photo" I send them a PM and they still post saying where is the pic's, if they read their PM they would know!!! Classic case of "Disco Star Farming"

Why have stars anyway? Surely it should be your opinions that matter.

Edited by Kelly2003 (54029) on 2003-03-06 15:27:23 colour text! didnt type it properly

This comment is my last comment 4 2 stars but I havent star farmed 4 it! I have stated opinions and put my views across on all the 250 posts I have sent! I have earned mine! Seems appropriate huh?? lol

But even saying that I dnt come on here purely 4 stars! I do it cuz I enjoy talking to people who have the same interests and people who all dance!

I dnt see the point in these people who star farm!

Loadza luv Kelly xxxx

Star Farming is when people post just to get stars.

- One Word replies
- Muliple (similar) replies
- Flooding the forums with the same question, over and over
- Starting new threads, when a reply should be added to an existing thread
