    Is double posting against the rules?

    I was just wondering, is double posting against the rules? Because I don't see it in the Rules and Policies thread. I'm not trying to start anything with the staff, but I'm just wondering. I want to bump an older thread in off topic section, but I'm not sure if I can double post.

    Double posting is just annoying as hell.

    But posting today and then being the next person to post a day later is not really double posting at all. But I really hate it when people do not edit their post instead of posting again right away.

    But yeah, to echo what others already said, it's just annoying to see someone double post when they can just as easily edit their posts. It's not against the rules though. There's nothing wrong with bumping an old thread either, so long as you're contributing to it by offering new information and whatnot.

    In my book there are 2 types of double posting, posting in a thread hours or days after your last post (which is fine by me).

    But posting like 2-3 posts within minutes from each other just because people cant be bothered to use the edit or multi-quote function piss me off

    First one isn't against the rules, the second one should be

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Double posting is only needed, when you have a thread that has not been posted in for a few days or when important info comes up that needs posted

    A feature should be added so that if you do edit a post a certain amount of time later it also bumps the thread.

    the colored pips are still very much coming - just gotta nail down some time with the site guys. Sorry, but with server moves and fixing some other stuff, they haven't been able to address it.

    There is a vB feature that does something similar to that. If you make a double post shortly after making the first post, the posts automatically merge and but the thread is bumped anyway. Not sure of the name of the feature... just something I've seen elsewhere. Would be a nice addition, albeit not too necessary.

    well, when it comes to it

    If you want the feature to be their, just do not abuse it or you will get an infraction or worse banned

    So i say it should be a no ruler. But it must not be abused like the DISLIKE OR LIKE option

    Double posting really isn't a big deal... hence why it was removed from the rules. The staff didn't want to start throwing out infractions for something like that, so the rule was removed. But that doesn't give users the leeway to start double and triple posting for no good reason.

    There are features out there to prevent it (like I've said), but at the end of the day I don't think it's necessary. a.) we don't have a large double posting problem here, and b.) all it requires is some common sense. There are times when it is okay to double post, and there are times when it isn't, and it isn't a difficult thing to distinguish.

    Double posting is part of proper forum etiquette. You just don't do it.

    Am I am referring to real double posting.

    I like to compare it to washing your hands after you use the bathroom. And I know some of you dirty little hamsters do not wash!
