The three-sentence quote limit
 
Can't the mods/admin just put a message at the top of the main menu informing people about the quote limit? I've seen such informational messages on another forum I use, surely this would save a lot of trouble if any of the mods/admin know how to do it.

I don't know. Red Stickies don't seem to do much.
Not many have read the Rules under FAQ ---so seems like a good idea.
Thanks.
Reminds me of the Airline Staff showing us what to do if we crash. :tongue:

Also a message about the 3 sentence quote rule of other member's posts. Might as well also add it to the forum rules page, since admins are enforcing the 3 quote limit to other member's posts.

It is being looked into

^^Good stuff, I imagine it must be a bit of a pain in the neck for you guys moderating the forum so hopefully something can be done to make your lives easier.

I tend to scroll right past the red stickies myself to be honest, though a message in big, bright letters at the top of the main menu should be much harder to miss.

Aren't new members given a link to the forum's rules when they join up? Thought I remembered that, could be wrong though.

In my opinion and as a counterweight to the restricting three sentence quote, we should have a rule that any and all responses should be of at least five full lines and should have something to do with the theme of the thread.

These constant 'I agree George' and 'good post Fred' are a waste of space, block off a normal continuation of the thread and apart from adding to the number of posts serve no other purpose.

Well, that won't be happenin'! I say that unofficially.
I don't think there is any hint of a feeling about stifling anyone's expression.
But, I think ideas are always welcome, Busby. I say that officially. :)

can't find
 
I'm not being awkward but I've been unable to find the "three sentence quote limit" reference in the 'Rules' section.

Could someone please point it out?

As with agreements when we subscribe to a new service or open an account etc. I expect few of us truly read through and understand the sometimes astonishingly-long list of do's and don'ts we agree to.

I would hope/expect most reasonable individuals would comply with rules that are simple and make sense - no swearing or defamation etc - but my guess is few actually study each and every rule.

Perhaps the most important and relevant ones ought to be summarized and posted at the top of all the rest?

This is a new rule as some quotes were taking up too much space. some were really long,
we were told to cut them down due to space.
so it was taking down to two three at the most lines.
any more and it would be deleted.
We had to bring it similar to the Copy and paste.

Copy-Paste: One or two lines at most of relevant text of material from other sites or sources and a link to the relevant text for further reading is allowed on the condition that the author is credited and the source linked is not a commercial site (promoting or selling goods or services). Quotes of religious texts such as the Bible or Quran must also be no more than one or two lines. Posts that quote or copy-paste more than one or two short lines of text will be removed or edited. Repeatedly breaching this rule will lead to warnings and possible Disciplinary Action.
