Flood control?

Is there a way to put some kind of flood control on the journals?

A few members here literally post one a minute until they flood the whole list. If anyone wants to read their friends journals, we have to dig through endless lists of someone's "I changed my socks." "I changed my socks again." "I think I will wear no socks."

Considering the sever problems Interference has had, this is especially wasteful of space.

We actually currently have no RULES concerning this type of thing in Journals. They are to be used for personal journals as a first priority... other's reading them comes second. Please keep in mind that journals are NOT intended to serve as forum threads and that different rules apply.

And if someone is going to make us look at reams of really bad entries they should expect someone to finally comment and not start badmouthing folk.

I really think you folks miss the intention of the Journals.

Journals are not about quality, nor are they about amusing/entertaining others.

I could as easily remove all of the journal stats all together, and then the only way you'd be able to find someone's journal waas via their profile or a post they have made. Journals and the stats are an added feature for each member.

I didn't mean anything insulting, or even anything such as you are implying, Elvis.

Actually, I'm not even sure WHAT I (or anyone said) that you didn't like. Especially given the consensus my post received.

I think we all know what the point of the journals is. I like reading everyone's journal. And I, nor anyone, can really do that when a few people are literally monopolizing the feature.

We know they're not the same as threads. But you don't allow multiple threads on one topic, you merge them. You don't allow a spin-off of a closed thread. Was my suggestion really that different?

It's a great feature and I love that you have offered it here on Interference. We all do. I know we all appreciate the freedom that we're given with them. I was seriously thinking of the server space. I recall the journals having to be off-line for several days because of the overload. That was only a month ago. But certainly, what the server can take is no business of mine.

I apologize for having caused any offense or problems with my post. I didn't really think I was suggesting something that offensive.

Server space is not an issue.

no one said anything about moderating them.

we just wanted to call attention/possibly do something about isabelle_guns' obsessive copy and paste bullshit that is clogging up the entire list of recent entries.

Wow... nice attitude.

I believe she explained legitimately why she did that, as she did not have access to a computer/net/interference. Just because she doesn't use it exactly as you do, does not mean she is using the feature wrong.

Infact, I am quite excited that people are using the Journals for real journalling, instead of some other random "bullshit" or for personal conversations, which they are not intended for.

if they are not for people to read in the first place, why do they exist?
