Some users just waste space.... Answered

Don't you think that people who have been members of this site since 2006 and haven't posted any instructables waste the server's space? I havent been here long (only 3 1/2 months) but I have posted 4 instructables already HERE'S WHAT BUGS ME MORE!!!!! the very same people have the coolest usernames!!!!!! (except me) What do you think???

Don't worry about our server space. We have more than enough. In fact, there is no such thing as a waste of server space from my perspective because it costs so little.

Chances are, they aren't deleted, but rather archived an hidden from view, so you aren't saving space.

Do you use mirroring? I mean, as a form of safety ?

Yes. We have on-site and off-site backups.

That is really good to hear. I can't even imagine what I would have to go through in a disaster recovery situation here, with 2 IBM AS/400's and 32 servers, it would be a mess, even with all the off site backups and such.

To be honest I don't post much, Only when its needed. But do you know who I think is the waste of space... ...YOU! Seriously in the few months you have been on here you've been running around like you own the place . Sure you made some instructables but it doesn't look like you put much into them, Most users on here spend time to get respect and you ain't gonna earn it by going round criticizing people saying that your better then them.

I'm not doing that! all but one instructable was helpful and all are not copies. also, I don't say people are not as good as me (except on the topic we're talking about). I say people like keith-kid or gorillazmiko are better but people who sink as low as avatar lawsuits (look down) are not good. If you want, you can help me be a better person, though.

I agree (mostly) with the guy above. You spam a lot, you talk like you own the place, even though you're relatively new here.....And you suck up too much.

All these threads where you rant about people who don't do anything, when you yourself only rant.

Also, you had 2 spams

  • The video
  • And thehow to make a custom robot avatar one. It was very low quality, no actual point, you didnt teach anything, and horrible grammar.

Hang on a minute....

You mean we can leave??
I've been stuck here for almost a year now and someone tells me now we can leave!!.... grumbles as he walks out the hidden door, slamming it, then locking it again before anyone else can escape.

No but seriously, is there actually a "leave" button?? Maybe I missed it in my travels. I guess it would be a bit hard to canel your account if there wasn't one.

You have to contact ewilhelm, tell him you wanna leave, send him another PM to confirm you own the account. He'll then try to persuade you, since you have ibles already. Then he erases it.

I dont think i need to justify myself to someone i have never seen/heard of before... the true "contributors" to this site dont need to be motivated by a prize to post an ible. heck, goodhart has only posted a couple ibles and he contributes in all sorts of ways to this site.

Don't worry. Goodhart didn't have many 'Ibles for a long time, then he started churning them out like butter, delicious knowledgeable butter =P

This guy is silly, just ignore him. He thinks just because he thinks he's an active member, he can create opinions people care about.

Always remember quality over quantity... In the words of tool using animal... Well users that don't have 'ibles may still contribute to the site, though I think sometimes people do join up, be interested for a week or two and forget about us... Getting a better catchment for people, like making them have continued interest in the site is hard, also when you're not logged in there are ads under 'ibles... There may be members that view 'ibles alot but don't comment or post... Anyway I'm trying to think of a big project to do for number 30 any ideas? Also I have the coolest username ever...

and its a combo that determines if you're cool. the combo is the username, the avatar, and the interaction with instructables members. so you said that only a third of you is cool and that really isnt 100% true, just maybe 91%

No, mine is an extremely geeky acronym (ok, initialism, if you insist) that arose from a conversation determining the crew roles a group of people would hjave on a hypothetical airship. I just always wanted a three-letter nom de clavier so adopted this one.
