I'd vote NO for several reasons-
1. I just got here!

I'll post the other reasons later: in separate posts.

Oh man, funny you mentioned that.

It is so hard to remember Hawaiian words as they have so many vowels, and repetitive ones too.

For example, the State Fish of Hawaii is "humuhumunukunukuapuaa"

Maybe we should do a poll? I've seen a lot of them lately.

No, I would not like to see such a limit. It would actually be detrimental to the forum in my opinion. Forums live or die or member engagement and this forum has great member engagement. And, as someone who has been a moderator on a number of forums, I can say that this forum is extremely well moderated and is by far the best I've seen. That adds to the overall pleasant environment of this forum and means that the vast majority of posts are within the rules.

I agree with the pleasant environment. I like to stop by every day or two and I would not want to count my posts!

That said, no, don't limit posting. Just implement a user fee above a certain limit... ha
If anyone exceeds their daily limit, impose a copulsory one month as a moderator!

I vote no. I would like to see more use of the multi- quote feature, especially for newyorkers.

Limited resources tend to be more highly valued. Would the quality of posts go up as the quantity goes down?



I'm not going to state an opinion on this topic. I'm just floating the idea.


For those who are not happy with the OP I get what they're trying to say. I've just filtered the topics I read and know of several posters that seem to like to get their post count up for some reason so for the most part ignore them also. I don't spend enough time in this forum to impart all of my vast wisdom for all. I do enjoy the ERF and there are issues with any online discussion forum.

Just to muck around. Some people feel that everything needs to be modified.

Yeah, lucky I gave them an option, I put in Kentucky blue grass sod. It saves all the hydrants in the neighborhood.

Well, does anyone here believe that the OP, as an occasional poster would have enough cred to make the mods consider his/her suggestion? Even before--but especially after 70+ "No" votes?
