    Spam is obvious and easy to diferentiate from a thoughtful/meaningful post.

    Cheers/grats or other types of accolades regaurding a focused topic is not spam. Even constructive criticism short of flaming is not spam.

    Adding 2-3 word replies that have A:been said already or B:add nothing to the conversation is spam. Of which, shane is not the only person banning for this annoyance.

    i dunno but this spam rule is just bullshit to me.

    its obvious people dont read rules.

    and even if we advise em not to spam we rarely ever provide a link to wat "spam" is

    this is a GAMING forum so we cant expect well educated people with doctorates to be

    posting.

    Honestly this forum is really aimed at a 14-25 age group and as we all know not alot of

    people are real mature at that age.

    if u gonna warn people for spamming at least provide a post with a link to the rules of

    forum.

    also this is rule is bullshit because people who have old status spam alot more than new

    members. why arent they banned?

    Instead of getting on your high horse about people that are not banned, do what we have asked and report their posts, we can then look into that person. We have the regular people who report posts and see results.

    If you have a problem bring it to the attention of a mod dont just wait for a post to be made then air all your frustrations.

    With regards to the rules, if people dont read it thats their problem, im not here to hold the hands of the forum users, im hear to advice if they ask me for help and im here to control the day to day running of the forum.

    you're a GG spammer Musht
    but i agree, one example could be OvergeareD in official forum...

    but i think it's good that Souls is taking this serious, cause often those who spam to 50 posts doesnt seems to have any good attention with selling their accounts (not saying everyone under 50 posts is scammers), but some come here just to make money on scamming people

    EDIT: this is spam imo: A Rogue in ARDREAM ?

    its not about getting on my high horse. and im not gonna go do ur job either. all i wanted to say is if u are gonna go ballistic on the new guys then try to be fair and do it on the older members as well.

    its monkey see monkey do.

    if older members can get away with spam why cant new members?

    if u are gonna enforce rules enforce them in a fair manner.

    like i said do ur job fairly or dont even do it at all.

    btw razor why do u want mods to check my ip?


    edit*

    and look at how ur started the thread. its was clearly meant towards people trying to get 50 post. You are clearly bitching at new players and not at old.

    perfect example in a thread full of spam

    No Drama KO - releasing soon!

    where are the 1 month bans on these?

    with all the +1's and the

    these are clearly spam but yet nothing is done.

    +10000. We've mentioned this and Devile(forum owner) recently made post about it. Him/Camatotz made a nice post on how to report. Only a handful of people actually report and I think on an average of 10 reports - maybe one of the reports were kinda iffy. 100% of the reports are read( pretty quickly) and about 99% of the reports actually lead us to giving an infraction/ban to someone.

    people should understand that making a report is the best thing for you/us to get shit cleaned up a.s.a.p (other then a scamming thread).

    Would like to request something from my friends that read this from in game, while we are this topic. Please dont try to put me against any of these other KO4life mods..... becuz I wont take your side. Its called professional respect. I need this moderating job to help keep my friends safe from imposters/scammers in game - I will not put that in jeopardy. Unfortunately I have to say this becuz recently it has happened and frankly I just ignored my own clannie.. and will continue to do so. So please be cool about it.....


    @ razor.... ive already check Gimme's ip becuz he's in my alliance. His is legit man- honest player. I know who he is in game without him even telling me. I promise. ^^

    I personally don't see anything wrong with the spam

    when someone does a "+1" , it's just the same thing as clicking on the "like" button in facebook. People like to know if others like or don't like what they are saying, if you restrict that, this board becomes more of a dictionary than a community.

    we are talking about a gaming board, not a board where we need to be serious and focused to coordinate a mission critical operation.

    holy shit i couldnt of said it better myself.

    this is a gaming forum. wat else can we expect?

    50 post is supposed to help clear out scammers no ( or so i understood) but is it really doing that?

    you cant expect me to believe that 50 post will affect the scamming on forum.

    if anything, forcing them to make clear thoughtful response to everything might give false impression of their true personality.

    i dont think i would find see myself doing a usd trade with someone who all he does is spam.

    I think both of you might be confused about what spamming is. It isn't the +1's that are the major annoyance. It's a discusion about unsealing Krowaz armor with a GM logging your account and some fuck-wit replying "Krowaz is better" having absolutely NOTHING to do with the conversatin accept the word "krowaz"....just a simple pointless spam that is not even related to the topic.

    We dont expect every1 here to use perfect spelling or be a grammatical genious. But asking to stay on topic and try to say things that add to the conversation seems pretty reasonable. We're doing this for YOUR benifit. Our goal is not to moderate the things you say, rather to keep the meaningless posts off the topics. Not that complicating of an issue.
