I wonder if E's admins might consider outlawing such (in my mind) useless posts and making people list games clearly by title and tags... everything would be so much clearer.
1. Just because you believe it so doesn't make it the only correct way. I'm sure there are some who post up 'shopping lists' are well satisfied with the number of roleplays they get. I have succeeded. Others have succeeded. Obviously, somebody reads them, even if you do not.
2. So long as the rules are followed, staff does not dictate how our members roleplay - this includes how they want to search for games. In our minds, it's useless to try to control all aspects of the internet's (like labeling a thread title). Even if there was such a rule, not all games fit into the categories, fit into too many, and there would be far, far
too many people punished because stickies aren't read, and some people just prefer not to use tags and titles.
I would prefer not to spend all of my already limited time on E cracking down on something like that.
I'm sorry, but you'll have to bear with the useless posts. If you choose not to look at 'shopping lists' and tagless titles, just think of it as their loss, Haibane.
