Why is it so hard for some people to create a thread properly?
Why do we have to keep finding ourselves plunging headlong into a video that we've all seen before, that there are numerous threads on already and
not having any written details about what is being presented, why and any possible content...
Even a few comments by the thread author would be nice..
But no... that's too much work..
For example.. this thread.. at time of posting, just one video, not even an emoticon.. nothing but the video..
but wait !!!
6 flags and 4 stars already?
I and many others have worked our fingers to the bone and drained all our brain power in order to format a thread that is as informative as we
possibly can yet sometimes we get nowhere..
How is this for an idea.. Do NOT flag or star a thread if there is no or very little content..
No effort deserves no reward.
There was a thread the other day where someone was wondering why nobody replied to another thread he/she had posted.. many of us took the time to
respond and try to explain..
It's this kind of effort and team work and sense of community that helps to make ATS the place it is..
Any Tom Fool can visit any forum around the web and post a video...
But here we demand more than that.. We WANT a conversation, we WANT to discuss
Instead of wasting my 15 minutes watching a video from an effortless post, I thought I'd use my time and let off some steam in this thread..
Yes, we can report the thread to MODs who will simply put up a little linky to tell about how to create threads properly.. but we need to show that no
effort deserves no reward.. not even a reply to the thread to complain about the OP or even ask for details.. If no effort could be used in the first
place, why should we waste our time trying to get some further info?
Don't flag or star effortless threads.. Let the power of the ATS members show how we feel by not rewarding or responding.
