Quality of EVE-O is going down. People are just mindlessly posting useless replies to threads. In an attempt to clean it up a bit, I give you the big list of stuff NOT to reply with in a thread.

THE BIG "WHAT NOT TO POST ON EVE-O BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT ADDING ANYTHING AND LOOK SILLY YOURSELF" LIST

The "I don't know what to put in the question marks either, but at least give me some points for all the other stuff i helped you with" post
Quote:
1) Do this
2) Do that
3) ???????
4) Profit


The "Whatever the author is proposing is gonna be bad for me so I'll just post this so people think I know things better than him/her but in fact can't be bothered to actually look, think and considder it" post
Quote:
No


The "I don't have anything to add to this thread but by copying this i'll at least get it bumped/get forumfame/give people the feeling a lot of people think that way" post
Quote:
(Quote)
This.


The "I want forum fame but can't actually think of anything usefull to say without looking silly" post
Quote:

The "look at how funny I am" post
Quote:
Fake Edit: ...


The "not funny joke funnied up by adding two words infront of it" post
Quote:

The "I am smart, you are not, but what I say may not be entirely accurate" post
Quote:
WTS clue


The "I thaught I had a good idea but nobody gave it any attention on the forums but I wan't people to pay attention to it without me sounding like a desperate thread bumper" post
Quote:
I couldn't find my old post so I'm just reposting this...


The "I can count to 10 but probably can't write a better thread than you" post
Quote:
1/10


The "my post sucks so much I didn't even bother to check my character" post
Quote:

The "I don't agree with what you are trying to say, but I can't really tell you why" post
Quote:
