    36 KB Sticky request: stop requesting music Anonymous ## Janitor 01/04/08(Fri)00:26 No.1090  
    Every time I hop on to /mu/, I find about an entire page worth of posts like "sup /mu/ requesting daft punk rapidshits" on the board. I delete and ban-request these posts for being requests outside of /r/ and for requesting copyrighted material, but there are even more posts like this the next day. I know that stickies are pretty rare, but I think that a simple one that says something like "Please stop making requests for music" would be really helpful, as it would educate many of the posters who clearly don't even know/care about the rules. The sticky would also probably motivate posters to report request threads in the future too.

    There's been a SHARP increase of /r/s on all the boards I visit. I suggested some sort of giant flashing banner one couldn't miss, but I believe the answer was no :(

    An increase in public bans is supposed to help combat the stupidity, but now I just end up with multiple USER WAS BANNED in /t/ with people requesting all around them.

    We have much the same problem on /h/, usually preceded by the phrase '/r/ has failed me', as if that was some kind of get-out clause. Requests/uploads for loli have been increasing there as well.

    Agreed. I have a similar problem on /c/ but most likely to a lesser extent. Though some requests are filled. Blatant ones should not be encouraged. Still, when I perused /r/ right now, it certainly seems to fail to deliver most of the time.

    I'm running into the same thing on /s/. I delete them, as they are quite an obvious /r/, and it is reposted two or three times with one image and the "hey mod, this isn't an /r/!" but it is. I try to lurk /r/ as much as I can to answer inquries. The sticky at the top of the board was actually getting the job done quite well- but now that it's gone, the /r/s started up again right away

    Ah yeah, I guess requests really are a problem everywhere. Perhaps it was selfish of me to just ask for a sticky on /mu/.

    /c/ seems to have a lot of veiled requests like "glasses thread GO!", where the OP posts one or two pictures, but then nothing else in the hope of getting his or her request filled. I tend to leave those threads alone because they almost always turn into a quality thread eventually with 50+ posts. I hope that is the right thing to do. I try to get rid of really obvious requests though.

    Lurking /r/ is a good idea and I bet that it helps things on other boards. Maybe I should start doing that. Of course, it won't fix things on /mu/, since requesting commercial music is always against the rules.

    I don't really consider it a request if the OP actually contributes something. Even if it's just one or two posts.

    I usually nuke the thread unless the OP posts more than 3 images, then I leave it...

    TBH I wasn't sure how to moderate these posts. Back not even 6 months ago it seemed like a fairly okay thing to do and the threads usually turned out just fine. I guess it's some sort of mass reform by a few posters, but considering the mass influx of requests, it's probably a good thing all the same.
