Like to keep it from being abused how about only gold and above members can use links and below gold links are blocked from them to use, that would make it so our trusted members don't abuse it sense most new members abuse it.

I totally agree. I've muted the same person from shout under at least 5 different usernames for spamming their ref link to another site.

i gonna say yes, however even some gold and platinum can't be trusted. so platinum+ or elite+ might be better

New members already cannot post links in the shoutbox. Let's not go overboard and get too strict. We just now started allowing external links in the shoutbox and it's fine like it is. Unfortunately some things will still be posted but gold + can delete those comments anyway. I had to vote no.


Hm seems new members can post them again. It would be good if new members couldn't post links again (excluding points2shop/cashle or Amazon links). Since your suggestion is to limit links to Gold+ then my "No' vote still stands.

We will enable it again. It caused some problems, but we will address those later this week.

Why don't you guys just give longer mutes? Like:

1 day
3 days
1 week
Permanent (but can be appealed)

People you mute just go play Xbox for an hour or something, then come back to spam again.

Muted people can still do stuff around the site, just not shoutbox and forums i think, and they just make new accounts anyway to spam.

Alright Mat. Thanks for the update. :) Hope you get the issues fixed.

If you notice someone continuously spamming, then returning again to do the same thing then send a ticket and let the admin handle it. They'll review their behavior and take care of it.
