HI all.... my name is Dalm. Some of you might know me from my good threads such as "You Can just Do Art" and "list Of Posts Dalm Has Liked." I believe there is a problem in the forum lately that i have noticed, and it has irked me for some time... There are not enough GOOD posts.
Don't get me wrong, many of the posts on this forum are REALLY GOOD, but for one reason or another they aren't PERFECT. They don't quite live up to my rigorous standards of quality, so i don't feel like i can justify spending one of my rare "likes" on them. these likes are burning a hole in my pocket. Look, i've only spent 10 of them, and it's tearing me apart. If there were more good posts, I could merely like those.
i have been recieving 1000 letters every day asking me to lower my posting standards and stop posting "this posst is good but not good enough" in threads I like, but i refuse to do this. It would compromise my ethics and sense of honour. I will only like posts i think are perfect examples of posting. I long to go back to the days of this 10/10 post from Cyborg Abigail or this 10/10 post from stein, or this post from my good friend warlock (10/10)) EDIT: I NO LONGER LIKE THIS POST, BUT I WILL ALLOW IT TO REMAIN HERE FOR POSTERITY. Nowadays it seems like all of the posts are still extremely good, but only 9 or 8 out of ten....
How we can fix this
as you may have noticed, i rank my posts based on an extremely rigorous and secret standard known only to myself, but a "jolly good post" will often, but not always, have three main features.
-the post is funny
-the post is creative or artistic
-the post includes me, dalm.
i believe that if we as a community improve our posting standards to fulfill all three of these prerequesites, we will have significantly more good posts, and i will once again distribute likes in this my beloved forum.
i'm excited to hear back from you
