Please don’t spam
Spam is anything pointless or annoying that adds nothing to the forum. A wise woman once said that spam is like porn—you know it when you see it. If you see something and think, “My oh my, that sure is cluttering up the thread,” it’s spam. One word “lolwut” or “orly?” replies? Spam. Posting a picture of a can of spam? Spam. Basically, if you see something and think it’s spam, it probably is.
Kongregate is not an image board
There is a whole internet full of funny pictures and memes. While we don’t prohibit posting images, they will probably be removed unless they contribute to the conversation AND are accompanied by words. The more content you add, the more likely we are to take you seriously! A motivational poster and “u suk lol” will get removed; a small funny picture and with a paragraph of genuine discussion will probably be allowed to stay.
Quote pyramids are awesome!
Lolno. Quote after quote just to make a giant green ziggurat on the page is just another form of spam. Quote pyramids involving images are doublespam. When in doubt, remember: don’t be a jerk.
I see spam! Wut do?
First of all, do not quote the post. Second of all, DO NOT QUOTE THE POST.
What you should do is flag it and let a mod take care of it. Quoting the post, even to say “get back on topic,” just makes the problem worse. If you want to get the thread back on topic, do so! Just don’t quote the post in the process. (Also: don’t quote the post.)
