    Lately on here I and probably others have noticed that there seems to be people not following the Forum Rules. What I seem to find alot is spam and warez posts. Just to clarify what spam and warez are:

    Spam - Anything completely unrelated to the topic. Anything like this is considered spam:

    The relish found in such a balanced competition was indeed inspiring. win lottery The aim is then for the children to pick as many up as possible.The way to Win the Lottery - The way to select your Profitable Sweepstakes Figures - how to win pick 6 lottery For those who are recently married, the holiday cards can offer the perfect opportunity to announce their marriage to anyone who was not present. <a href="The way to Win the Lottery - The way to select your Profitable Sweepstakes Figures - how to win pick 6 lottery">win lotto</a> Get the facts straight before making conclusions. Government had over 3 billion ounces of silver, but they ran completely out several years ago. No matter what your political views are, it's a great idea to pay attention to what kind of stories and commentaries this network provides because it is highly influential in American society.


    (Please not that this is an actual spam post and was taken directly off a forum)


    Warez - Anything having to do with the distribution of pirated apps, material, or content. This includes piracy of any sort. Here is an example of a warez post:

    Hi guys, I recently installed an app from I n s t a ll o u s. It really screwed up my device, it continually goes in a respring loop. It also goes into SafeMode. I can't figure out why this is happening, can anyone help me out?
    (Please not this is an example of what is considered warez)


    Signature Spam - Advertising your company or business in your forum signature. This is an example of signature spam:

    Need a legit jailbreak? Visit this site! <Website Name>
    There is an exception to this rule however, Developers and Themers are allowed to advertise their latest themes, mods, tweaks, etc. Anything else by a non-developer or themer is NOT permitted.

    Posts such as these are NOT tolerated. According to the Forum Rules, "Warez posts are not permitted, the post as well as the user will be removed from this site if warez is posted."There is also a ZERO tolerance policy for spam posts. Users that do not follow these rules (Especially spammers) are subject to removal from this site. So please, consider following the Forum Rules in your posts, it only hurts you if you don't.







    Hate to do it... Bump.

    I have an idea - how about new users aren't allowed to post links until they reach 20 posts. That would solve most of the spam problems, I think.

    Well, now that I've got you all here, I was thinking recently that I can sort of remake the MMi icon for the app store. Who do I talk to about that?

    I have all the geometry for it, I just need to render it out... one moment...

    20 post links are actually a great idea.

    Except people could still post links without hyperlinking them. IDK if there is anything you can do about that.

    Yah I don't think that would be possible... You'd have to make it somehow detect links.

    Actually late night and early morning we have had some spammers that post 30+ posts very fast.

    And the img tag spammers have been flooding us lately.

    But it does them no good cause img tags don't get counted in search engines crawlers.
