I'd go as far to say 90% of this forum is a waste of time.

What's wrong with letting people just say "hi" and make their new presence known? Why was the introduction thread (inconvieniently) locked?

I just don't understand.

The other one got locked because people started spamming.

As I said before I think an introduction thread for everyone wouldn't hurt as long it's something short about themselves maybe say what toho things they like. Just my opinion though.

Is it REALLY that important to introduce yourself on a forum?

This topic ranks almost as pointless as any other. It's the rule, that's why we can't. Is it a stupid rule? Sure, but who cares? Let this topic fall into the realm of moderately semi-amusing spam.

What is the point of just making a topic so people can say " Hello, I am a G-fan too!", when they can just introduce themselves in a topic and then get to discussing whatever the topic's about right afterwards. It would be almost as stupid as having a topic just for saying good morning or good night.

Really. It seems like it would be a whole lot harder to moderate a single thread than fifteen threads of people telling you what pissed you off or made you happy, a lot of which nobody really gives a damn about. "Hey! I cooked pizza!" "It's raining outside. :( " "I'm playing a video game!" Wow.

What's the point to a thread discussing saying what you did today? What's the point to a thread discussing the merits of flash animation about ponies? What's the point of discussing your latest downloads? Yeah.

Because an intro thread is going look like this

Hi, Im new! I love Godzilla! and Gamera!

Hi new guy.

Hey newb

Welcome, watch your attitude or youll get banned.

Hope you like MLP! Bronies 4 Life!

Hi!

Welcome!

Hey!

Welcome to TK!

Heeeey!

Didnt I see you at Maser City?

This thread is spam.

It is not.

This thread is pointless.

Hey new guy!

...I bet he's underaged.




It'll be a thread more pages longer then the bitching thread with ^^^ all that repeated FOREVER.

I bet Arbok is waiting to approve an introduction thread until he perfects his death ray powered by repetitive posts.

Wataru = Secret Brony

It's why he's always trying to bash it, to cover up the fact he loves it.

Despite the fact that his post sums up what basically every intro thread on the forums would deteriorate into.
