    I know it sounds bad, but the influx of new users that just S***post all the time pisses me off. I know there is an age limit, but there needs to be a maturity limit. I joined this forum when I was 14, 2 and a bit years ago. But no one could tell my actual age because I made sure to only post after thinking it out thoroughly (which I'[m not doing now, irony :') ).

    In the last two days, I have seen two separate users post/spam threads, to the point where people have to step in multiple times. (one was spamming new threads, one was commenting a lot and then throwing a tantrum).

    Ahh, I don't know, I just miss the old forums, back in '13, with MrHeyF***Off(hadacoolname), 6677, Hati, Dkutch, drowsy, Moose-somthing (i forgot). You know, where we could actually have a mature discussion about the game, and not all the new car threads were spammed with "this car looks like x"

    I think this is the reason I mainly only visit this forum for mods now, and it saddens me.

    They should make it so that it's complicated to register etc. so that only people who actually care get posting privileges. There should still be a section for everyone to post, still. Also that a user must get evaluated (or something like that) before they get posting permissions.

    Yeah, but that would be hard to develop and manage :(

    I just wish some people were more mature, and listened when people give them advice. ---looking at you Nodus---

    I just miss the OG (/s) beamNG forum members, i finally know why so many of them stopped showing up

    What are you even talking about? What does your framerate have anything to do with this thread? Please use punctuation.

    he said when he had a pc that couldn't run it, the forums were better, now that he can run the game, they are worse. A weird co-relation but it works

    You're (hopefully) being sarcastic, right?

    The community is going downhill rapidly, especially with over-posting. There are some users registered in September who have more than twice as many posts as me. The majority of them drivel, I might add.

    Exactly. I have been here more than two years, and have not even (at the time of this post) hit the 200 mark.

    The issue isn't the amount of posts, it's the usefulness/helpfulness/etc. of them.

    Yep. I am seeing a lot more chains of posts, from people who have been told already not to. (not going to name names, although we all probably know who I am talking about).
