Welcome to the Fun n' Games subforum! Let your fun and gaming side out in creative ways here!<br><br><br><br>
We who regularly post in the Slut for Power thread are aware that there are those of you on Veggieboards who back away from the thread because of its strange title. (We know you do this, because some of us regulars did the same thing ourselves at one point!) What does "slut for power" mean anyway?<br><br><br><br>
It originally began a few years ago as a way of getting around the posting guideline that asks members not to post several times in a row in a thread as a way of upping their post count. Thus, the title Slut for Power. It has gradually evolved into simply a chat thread, in which we members can chat about whatever is on our minds, from the big issues of our lives to the minutiae of our lives. Many of us thread regulars have developed a camaraderie from posting in the slut thread; we invite you to come share our discussions, and perhaps you'll become one of us! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br><br><br>
Once each SFP thread reaches 5,000 posts, it will be closed and a new one created. Traditionally, the last person to post in the thread (other than the mod who closes it) gets to create the next one!<br><br><br><br>
And so this is why we call ourselves slutters, or easy posters. Please do not let these terms dissuade you from dropping in on the slut for power threads and chatting with us. We like you, we really do! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> And we are child-friendly! Slutters must follow the same posting guidelines in the SFP as anywhere else on the board. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veganpolice.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":notvegan:"><br><br><br><br>
I hope that clarifies for all of you what the SFP thread is all about. Now, let the slutting continue! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

Lucine, words have more than one meaning. Online, this happens especially quickly. The phrase "post slutting" predates my tenure on VB, so I can't tell you who used it first or why. At first I thought it would be a thread glorifying uncommitted sex, but I was wrong. Many of us who have been on VB awhile posted a lot in SFP at one time or another.<br><br><br><br>
Sometimes when people post pictures of the food they prepared or the innards of a computer, they refer to it as "porn." They don't actually mean pornography, and I don't see anything wrong with talking about "food porn" or "computer porn."<br><br><br><br>
All that, and I'm a Christian who's planning on waiting for marriage to have sex. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

"Post sluts" and "post whores" are common terms used across many online forums. I believe it is even mentioned somewhere in the VB Terms of Service.

I often wonder. That is, how many "non-slutters" read the SFP thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Why would it be good to up your thread count? I don't understand!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br><br><br>
This IS the first forum I've ever been a part of..... perhaps I'm missing something.<br><br><br><br>
Also, since I'm here, what does ETA stand for? It's obviously NOT estimated time of arrival, so ??

Nookle, at one time, newbies couldn't post links, upload an avatar or change their user titles until they'd reached 15 posts or something like that. It's changed since then, and I'm not sure where we stand with the new server. Some people really wanted to do those things, so they'd post random stuff to get them up to the benchmark.<br><br><br><br>
And, the other componant is wanting to have a bazillion posts so your name is high on the top posters' list. Click on "Members List" at the top blue bar of every screen, then "Posts" so it sorts people by post count.<br><br><br><br>
Since Michael made it so posts in Fun'N'Games sub-forum don't count toward your total posts, there's less incentive to post-slut now. Slut threads have become more conversational and less completely pointless stuff. If you do it now, it's because you enjoy talking with the other post-slutters.
