Noob posts - I don't always want to see them

Recommended Posts

I know there is a way to select which sub-forums you want to mark as read so they do not pop up as "new" posts and I do that at times with the Noob posts if I'm trying to skim quickly to find topics of interest.  But is there a way to not show these posts at all?  The reason I'm asking is that currently, right now, of the first 5 pages (100 posts) I counted nearly 85 which are Noob posts, all of which one person replied to. 

 

I check the board every day during lunch and between our slow internet connection, my limited breaktime and constantly being interupted by work(!), it makes it difficult to browse new posts, especially since you can't go past 10 pages of posts.

I completely understand where you're coming from.  If one person is posting the same thing over and over again, that's actually SPAM and can result in a temp ban.  Definitely report it if you see it happening.

 

It's unfortunate that some people choose to not actively participate in order to reach 150 posts.  It just frustrates the rest of us.

 

As for your actual question, I'm sorry, I don't know the answer.

thanks Kristy.  I reported the person.  I wasn't sure if it qualified as spam or if I was just being picky! huh.gif

I feel like less of a poster sometimes because I haven't reached 150 posts yet but I do participate in the stuff I find important and I relate to.  I'm sure I'm going to insult someone...but it feels so impersonal to simply post the same thing over and over just to reach that magic number.

actually Mrs.J for us "older" members it is quite refreshing to see a noob come on and contribute to the forum in a way that is beneficial for the other members. so thank you for being here and and participating!

 

It is very annoying when people just post to reach their 150 simply so they can download the attachments then you never see them again!

bump.gif  All right, think this post needs a BUMP!!!!!!

 

I was there so I totally understand wanting to reach your 150 posts and up your "status" but as someone who truly values this forum and tries to always provided useful feedback, comments etc. I am SO SICK of seeing the "great" "love this" "pretty" "I like it" posts from the SAME user!!!!  I like seeing the most current threads as much as anyone but when I open them up just to see it is the same user writing the same or similar comments on them all it really urks me!!!!

 

It is also very frustrating when you are looking through threads and 5 pages of the 10+ are just "so nice" "love this" comments!!!!!  

 

I don't want them banned as this is such a valuable resource but there has to be a better way for Noobs to learn the BDW ropes before they have at it!!!!

 

Sorry for the vent all just thought this deserved a BUMP maybe it'll help out a few noobs who truly don't understand the forum!!!!

 

welcome.gif So welcome noobs but PLEASE read the FAQs to get you up to speed on the amazing resource that is BDW, you will get great info, make some amazing friends and plan a phenomenal wedding but you don't have to post on EVERY thread you read BangHead.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
