So-called "spam threads" which had gotten completely out of control and had to be closed, will now be tentatively re-opened. To keep these threads open, all members must read and comply with the new rules.
Posting in any thread marked as spam will have this icon beside the thread link :
. Any thread that is opened can be reviewed by a staff member and, if it is marked as spam, it will be edited to say that it is a spam thread and all members must post within the rules.
Posting in a spam thread is limited to ONE post per 24 hours. What this means is you may only post in a spam thread once each day (board time). If you want, you may post in the thread at 11:59PM and again at 12:01AM. But if you do that you forfeit your post for the day and must again wait until 12:01AM the NEXT day.
Any member who posts more than once in a spam thread will recieve one block on their warning bar as stated in THIS THREAD.
If the thread is being abused it will be closed indefinitely.
The only exception to this rule is when a moderator or administrator is making an off-topic post for any reason. These will usually only occur when they close a thread that is being abused.
Keep in mind that while these rules may seem harsh, they really aren't hard to follow. What we are trying to do is have the other forums open up more, but giving members the oportunity to have some mindless fun. The new rules are in place to keep the mindless fun from becoming the only thing people come here for.
This is primarily a Feist-based forum, not a PAM-PBM forum after all.
If you have any questions, you may send a mod or admin a PM.
