@dmalsbury:
I don't want to make you angrier than you already are, but I looked back through your posts and can honestly see why you did NOT get the bonus. Most were very short, like 1 sentence, and I didn't see anything I would consider contributory or helpful, sorry. The longest ones are this months that you have written to blast admin. It's probably not a good idea to call admin narcs and tell them to kiss your :bootyshake: either, no matter how upset you are. They own and run the site, so it's their call and not our's. They could just decide to ban you altogether and then you wouldn't need to worry about it, period....

No, that is definitely NOT true. There are many threads in the D&D section that some of us stick with for many, many pages if the topic is a hot one, so that has nothing to do with it.

You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.

Thanks for letting us know. I'm sure it will help alot of members avoid the same fate.  I missed out once because the site was down near the end of a month and I didn't have enough good posts to qualify. Although it is not perfect the rules are pretty clear. I think sometimes a one or two word witty reply can be just as valid as a couple of paragraphs, but if half your posts are like that it is probably going to raise a red flag.

Yeah, it happens. Unfortunately if you're on this board long enough, the same topics get repeated time and time again.
It's hard to come up with longer winded answers for the same questions. It's not like we're all politicians.

Sorry to hear that happened to you, but I must say that I do not agree with you.  Like you said you answered 1 or 2 words to your your posts.  In the terms it clearly states that you must reply with contributory, humorous, etc.  I usually reply to more than just 30 posts per month incase some of my posts were just one or two words.  And I usually reply to anwers asked about FC for the newbies and things like.

I just looked through them myself and have to agree with you, jordandog.  Posts of "hi walks" and "1358" definitely don't fall under contributory or ones which really have much thought to them.

I also agree that venting all over the forum and bashing the admins isn't very smart.  I think this site is very generous with bonuses and offerings.  In return, what they ask for them I don't think is very unreasonable at all and is very fair.

I am sorry to hear about being denied for the forum bonus. Admin has his criteria and we should follow. And someone is right this site is generous to offer bonuses so it could helps our earnings. Me my second forum bonus was approved.Better luck next time.

Yes, I do the same thing myself.  I shoot for at least 60 just in case, although I know I'll only get the $3.  But that's okay with me.  I like posting anyway.  My blog is proof.   ;D

What's the criteria for a "substantial" post?

If it's a specific number of words then I wouldn't know how the admin would determine if it is "substantial."

For instance, you may type a long paragraph but it doesn't necessairly one is saying much, or is "substantial" on the context of the a particular situation. Or you can type 1 or two words, or perhaps not even a word at all, and it can mean a lot or could be "substantial," depending on the context of the circumstance.

How one admin could determine whether each post of each member in FC is subsantial would really depend on FC's definitoin of "substantial" post.

Hi all,
FYI, if you participate in the forums to get a bonus, don't reply to any inquiries that only take a word or two to answer, because the spiteful admin will
deny your bonus request. I participated for the whole month of October, replying appropriately to 30 posts, but not writing a long winded explanation
of my feelings. This is what I got from them:

Hello,

Your forum bonus was denied due to insufficient content in your posts.  Most were very short.  Please feel free to try again next month, but be sure to give your posts some thought and contribute to the conversation in a meaningful way.

My question is this: How can admin know the amount of thought I gave to each of my posts? Perhaps if admin would give us a number of required words to meet their requirements...and what they consider sufficient content.... I think admin sucks. thanks for nothing admin.
:wave: :wave: You are a hero member, Correct?? AND you have not figured out this forum posting?? Something is wrong with this picture. It seems to me that you should have figured it out before now. Am I missing someting here??

Read the rules & regulations. It explains that it doesn't  accept short  or BS posts. Usually, I do more than 3o posts each month b/c some times I just give yes or no posts so that's out. I check my 30 posts  b/c some are rejected marked w/a big X which tells that it wasn't  legit & just pick the 3 acceptable ones. Since, I do those steps I've never been rejected on my bonuses each month. (Knock on Wood) :thumbsup:

Hi, I'm just another one that uses the forum, did you listen to "Good  Buddy", he was very defininite on the instructions about brief answers.
"Yeah me too!" as an answer would not be admissable!
