Default Longer Posts...

I think that to reduce people posting to get their post count up, the minimum message should be made longer, this will stop people from just replying

"lol"

or

"lmao"

so i think that davis should

"Perhaps limit it to this long"

Then i feel it would stop the forum from being used just to get a post count up and to make people actually use the forum for what it is meant for.

Yes, No?

I don't really think it's necessary here. Besides, sometimes I just post a smilie in agreement. I'm not trying to get my count up - I just felt a smilie would suffice! Also, if someone wanted to spam, they could just pound on their keyboard until they had the minimum number of characters anyway.

But still it would stop people from posting for the sake of post count, i.e.

"i agree."

Possibly, but I don't think that's really a problem here. Besides, sometimes a simple 'I agree.' is all that's needed.
