Spamming Policy Update

Due to some oversights on our part during our condensing of our policy guidelines, we've had to go back and make some revisions to our spamming policy.

An OP is allowed one bump per twenty-four (24) hours after the last post was created in their thread!
We've tried to make it easier to read by expanding it with bullet points, added some things we forgot, and try to include exceptions for a better understanding of the policy.

  • Mass PMing people you do not know or who have not invited you to PM them

    • Certain areas of the site have their post count shut off for this reason.
  • One or two letter replies (i.e. ok, LOL, Yes, agreed, nods)
    • A post requires a minimum of 10 characters
  • Caps/Lowercase variances (I wAnT A sEcReT fRiEnD)
  • Poor color choices for YOUR text versus the forum's skin color (such as white text on a yellow background)
  • Excessive punctuation (yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
  • Letter repetition in a word (Wooooooooooooooot!)
  • Excessive use of smileys
  • Exceptionally large images placed within posts which may cause some browsers to scroll
    • Instead of using [img][/img] try using [shot][/shot] bbcodes.
  • Multiple postings
    • Authors are allowed to put chapters into different posts within the Story and RPG forums only.
  • Excessive bumping of threads
    • An ORIGINAL poster is allowed one bump per twenty-four (24) hours after the last post was created in their thread!
