I just want all members to be cognizant of how the title their posts. Titles that are alarming may get quicker attention, but they are going to have a short life-span on the board.

I see that we have a couple of posts made in the past few days that this concept applies to.

Be Careful how you title your posts! From above:

I just want all members to be cognizant of how the title their posts. Titles that are alarming may get quicker attention, but they are going to have a short life-span on the board. They are either going to get a "Do not post to this thread again and Let it drop" warning once the crisis has passed or end up disappearing all together. Also, if any member obviously becomes a regular attention seeker at Freedom he or she is going to lose his or her posting privileges. He or she will still be able to have access to read and get all of the same information that we make available at Freedom and at www.whyquit.com, but he or she will never have the ability to ask specific questions to the general membership.

The entire string of Bringing negative posts to the top discusses potential problems of having strings that have titles that if used over time may not accurate reflect the mindset of the member. So as it says above, be careful how you title your posts. They are likely to have more attention and longevity if their titles are not attention seeking by design.

Just a word of warning, if you ever see the warning of "Let this post drop" in big highlighted letters and for some reason you want to keep a copy of the string, copy and paste it to your local computer for there is a real chance that the thread will be pulled if any member pops it up.

The more that our members read and learn about our operation the lesser the chance that they will ever lose posting privileges. More importantly though, the more that all of our members and non-members read and learn here about nicotine addiction, the more resolute they will always stay in their decision to never take another puff!

Just bringing this one up as an example of how we really do try to minimize attention seeking posts at Freedom.

As we discuss in the thread The Freedom Classroom
Since December of 2002 we have had over 1,056,000 distinct hosts view pages at www.whyquit.com. If only 10% of these people find their way to Freedom it would still be over 100,000 people. The numbers may be higher. While we don't know the exact numbers of people who do read we know it is a lot. Every person posting at Freedom has an awesome responsibility because every word you are writing is capable of influencing hundreds or even thousands of people. Considering what we are trying to influence them to do, which is to quit smoking and to save their lives, it is easy to see how why we feel that this is indeed an awesome responsibility.
