Lately there have been an excessive number of pointless crafts and forum posts that are solely thanking the community for upvotes. This has started to detract from the site, and as a result these types of posts will now be considered spam and removed by moderators.

These posts could also be considered begging for points and/or gaming the points system, both of which are expressly against the rules.

Please have fun, build things, share things, upvote things you think are cool or useful, and do not obsess about the points.

    @MansBestFriend people are welcome to release their crafts whenever they want. So if somebody wants to post a legitimate craft when they reach a particular points milestone I take no issue with that, nor with a note in the description, nor with markings on the craft. What I do take issue with is crafts pots and forum posts that have no redeeming value and are just 1) colored rectangles, 2) reposts of old crafts, or 3) would otherwise be considered spam/junk in the absence of the "thanks for the points" flare. For an example here is an older post that I wouldn't have removed because it was a totally new, legitimate aircraft that happened to have a "thank you for the points" (referring to a previously reached milestone) in the title (and didn't have any other points begging behavior like a bunch of tags).

    That said I still think this is a silly thing to do, and while I won't delete such things I continue to encourage everybody to refrain from obsessing about points.

    Point system isn't cool xD.

    You should get +1 for each downloads without a notification..

    I see some posts which have less downloads but quite high upvotes.
    And some have quite high downloads but less updoootes.

    So I (don't) hope it will be added soon..

    Don't because I guess developers, mods and all don't go through suggestions sometimes..

    Rest thing is damn good

    @KnightOfRen these sites are moderated independently, so this doesn’t officially apply there as far as I know. However the spirit of this policy still applies.

    @DOGOSPACE Technically, I did not remove your post. However, I believe the feeling was that your craft did not represent a serious effort and that it was posted merely as click/upvote bait. If you were to re-upload the craft with a title that is not is not "thanks for the points" clickbait my guess is that it would not get removed.

    Wait does this include when you reach a milestone like when someone gets to 10k, but they only make something for that milestone? @sflanker

    Have to say sorry for contributing to this. I saw it a ton, and thought I should as well. Could almost consider it pressure to do it as well, especially as a smaller creator a few months ago.

    No hard feelings toward anybody who as made such posts. We didn’t have any guidance before now and earlier on the posts were infrequent and amusing. We’ve just gotten to a point where it’s time we outgrew these.

    Long days without a face
    With nothing more to say
    Closed in your silent room
    Waiting for better days
    When the night is coming
    There's nothing more to do
    She comes walking in silence
    Always dressing in blue
    Your heartbeat seems to fade
    Don't runaway anymore (ooh woa ooh oh oh)
    Your anger burns inside
    That's not the life you ask for (ooh woa ooh oh oh)
    This is the wind of change
    There's nowhere to go (nowhere to go)
    No time, no place to hide
    Anywhere in the world
    REFRAIN:
    You can get, you can get what you want
    Life is so strange and so full of desires
    Day by day, try to follow your way
    The wind of change is burning out the fire
    Out the fire is burning, out the fire
    The wind of change is burning out the fire
    You can get, you can get what you want
    Life is so strange and so full of desires
    Don't waste your time again
    Too many years have gone (woa ooh oh oh)
    You are lying in the dark
    Open yourself to the sun (woa ooh oh oh)
    This is the wind of change
    There's nowhere to go (nowhere to go)
    No time, no place to hide
    Anywhere in the world
    You can get, you can get what you want
    Life is so strange and so full of desires
    Day by day, try to follow your way
    The wind of change is burning out the fire
    Out the fire is burning, out the fire
    The wind of change is burning out the fire
    You can get, you can get what you want
    Life is so strange and so full of desires
