Yes, I know that to forum regulars posts like "+1" can get on nerves, but they are in response to the original post and while exceedingly short, not a "bad" thing. "I agree" may not be much better, but not everyone has much to say beyond that, but they want to contribute. I personally take that rule as more along the lines of "stick with the subject and don't post nonsense for the sake of posting nonsense". A thread titled "I like pie" with an original post of "discuss my like of pie plz" would be the sort of thing that was against the rule.
And because i care for the feelings of others, i will explain why: Alot of players have the feeling, that if for example a suggestion reaches a large enough response in the forums, the devs will consider it. Don´t know if it´s true, but i guess so.
Also, what do you expect, if you visit a thread like "look at this pic, isn´t it a nice rifle you would like to have?" A bunch of repeating adjectives, how much people would like to have it? I rather go for 7 replies of +1, scroll past them and notice, that alot of people like it for the exact same reason as the op and then read the reply from the guy who doesn´t. Saves time. Also, who cares for post counts? Seriously.
Im really glad someone said it with better eloquence than I have atm. As useless as it seems it matters to me what so and so feels about the material and how strongly (+10) You all know that when a guy comes to the end of a conversation and dozens of posts have been made its kinda pointless to try and agree and then paraphrase whats already been said just to avoid the +1 or + whatever. I like knowing who thinks what about whatever and they dont need a complete discourse to say it.
