PSA: Double Posting We've seen a huge amount of double posts (including triple and quadruple posts and such) over the past 5 months. We used to usually only see them 5 times a month, but now its even gotten 4x that point. Since its been done several times, I think its a good idea to inform those who do it of the rule and what double posting means. First off, here is the rule on Double Posting which can be found here (http://kh13.com/forum/forum-3/announcement-2-kh13-rules-please-read-this-once-it-wont-take-long/): What is Double Posting? Double Posting is when you post right after your initial post. For example: You can't do that, its against the rules. There are solutions to this, which we will get into a bit later. Is Triple Posting allowed? No, it isn't. Quadruple posting isn't allowed either. They all fit as Double posting. You can't chain post like that. Why is it not allowed? To prevent spam and for the forums to not look cluttered. If we have like one member posting every thought they have onto a thread while chain posting, its going to not go well. We've dealt with 5 posts in a row that go like this, its not a hypothetical situation. What are some solutions to my Double Posting? One solution is to edit your initial post to add in more of your thoughts. For Example: You see the edit button in between Report and Hide? That is where you will prevent yourself from double posting. The second solution is to post right after another member posts. For Example: If you're not patient enough, then edit your initial post. It is what I do. NOTE: We do not condone spam, this was just an example. Those will also be removed. What if I posted already, but I want to reply to quote another post and reply to that? First, you find the post you want to quote. Second, you select "MultiQuote". Here it is as bright as day: It is located as options to the bottom of the post you want to MultiQuote, along with the Edit option I showed you before. This will appear in the bottom most right corner of your screen: Third, you go back to the post you made and select Edit. This will appear on your screen: Fourth, you select "Use Full Editor". This will appear on screen: Do you see the quote? The quote is automatically placed into the post. No extra step involved! Lastly, do whatever you need to do and then select "Submit Modified Posts". Here is how it looks: This is your result! Well done Weed, well done. [*]What happens if I continue my Double Posting? Continue on and you wont have to post again. Posting restrictions will be placed. I hope this all clears any confusion according to Double Posting. If you have any questions please ask below and I or any of the mods will respond back. Q&A (From Members) Q:Does Double Posting rule apply to statuses as well? A: No it doesn't. Just do not spam (for example, "fhirfher" 20x in a status) and you will be fine. Q: Will this apply to Roleplays as well? In case someone forgets something throughout the RP, and I need to remind them through a post, will it be fine if I make a separate post to remind them even if I Double Post? A: This will be an exception. However, be sure to abuse the exception for any other reason. You can double post if it relates to the RP, not for any other reason such as spam. If it becomes an issue, the privilege would have to be removed. This doesn't excuse the entire Roleplaying Forum, just only the Roleplays themselves. Also to note, there is a thread called Team Awesome RP that will be excused to spam. Q: What happened to the Auto-Merge feature? A: We don't know, but it is clear it hasn't been working for these past months. Please follow the methods above since the feature isn't cooperating with any of us. Q: Does this apply to the Random Forum? A: Yes it does. It applies to all forums, even the Roleplaying forum. However, Roleplay threads themselves are the exception. Q: What happens if I am on my phone and since using this site is uncomfortable on it, I mess up and double post? A: We understand accidents happen. Its just deliberately double posting, spamming and such is the main issue despite all of our warnings. If you do see yourself double posting just report it and let us know (or contact one of the mods if reporting is just as uncomfortable). We'll deal with it and understand the situation you are having. Q: What about if I have an art thread (or something like this) where I update such thread with new pieces/entries/etc.? There are times where I update it and then, lets say 2 weeks later, I want to update it again but if I post my new entry it would be considered Double Posting. What do I do? A: These type of threads are an exception to this rule because it is the creator's thread a where he/she presents their work. So yes, you can Double Post. Note that necro-posting or trying to bump it up is not allowed. You have to double post with that new entry, if not, we'll think of it as something else.
