Topic tags/keywords: opinions needed too many project posts question

I was told by one member that I posted too many projects and that “posting all your projects like you did is no better than SPAM”. I am a new member, and I posted several of my projects (I posted 36) to give other members a broad sampling of work that i am doing. If I should not post so many, then I will remove them and not post any more. Please give me your opinions regarding this.

Hello Kris,
I see no reason why you or anyone else should limit the amount of projects posted. Whether they are of similar style or varied, this is a place for posting. It is unfortunate that someone made that statement to you.
My only criticism is there are no Woodducks in your projects.
Keep posting stuff, maybe it will continue to irritate your critic. Marc

It’s a free site. Enjoy it how you will. People are just as free not to click on your stuff.

No woodducks, but I did post Mallards. Thanks for the opinion.

I really don’t care what you do.
(I see that you posted them all on the 26th.)

The (perceived) problem is that some people would like their projects that they posted the same day to stay on the front page a little while for other people to be able to see. When you post so many at one time it pushes their projects off the front page and they don’t get the exposure as they would. Forum etiquette!

I don’t think anyone cares about how many you post, it’s just posting them all at one time.

Like I said, I don’t really care one way or another, but since your asking that is my explanation to you.

I wouldn’t worry about it at all. If you had not uploaded projects you would have been chastised by some.

It’s your profile post what ever you want. Like an old friend told me a long time ago opinions are like aholes everyone has one and most of them stink.

Post all you want, most posts don’t last on the front page more than an hour or so anyway. There are some that never leave the front page that need to die for a while.

I’m not aware of any rules that limit the amount of projects you can post ,many people post lots of projects when they first sign up,but it does tend to get some of the other projects lost in between a large group of projects posted all at once Lots of nice work Kris Welcome to LJs

If there was a post limit, they would have kicked me out a long time ago. Some folks were born angry.

Thanks for this explanation. Now it makes sense, and I understand the concern of the angry guy. I didn’t know about the front page issue. I will limit my posts from now on.

yeah kris you can post as many as you want i think what happens though if you post such a large amount all at once it kinda overwhelmes some and they just dont bother to look at each piece and give it much attention,which is a shame because you do some nice work,but please dont feel intimidated.id rather see a lot than nothing.there are many that have been on this site for years and have never shared anything which is a shame as we dont get to really know them.but hey to each his own,i look forward to seeing more of you buddy.
