I was thinking about if there would be a way, that every user on here before they use the shoutbox that they have to read the rules and click i agree to these terms and only have to do this once. To cut the spam, talking about other sites where you earn prizes, and asking for games if you do you get banned for an hour. Not sure b/c we give them a lot of chances and they keep coming back later and try it again.

Agreed, not only has this been suggested before but I'm sure this will be a must very soon.

Its a good idea so that new members don't do it unknowingly but if it is to warn spammers they might just ignore it anyway. Then come back an hour later and do it again :p

You mean you have to MAKE THEM READ, which probably won't happen anytime soon. Maybe pictures might help.

indeed. Like maybe a small note under the shoutbox saying "Read the Rules!"

Or another thing i have in mind that i know is possble is to have a part above or below that fades through the rules. so it could go from "No foreign links!" and then "No spamming!". very small and just short, to the point texts.

Just the first things that came to mind. I dont think people should be forced. But people should be aware of some of the major ones. Thats why i think the the fade through list would be good.

I doubt they would read it, and just click accept anyway.

That would cut down some span from new players

Pictures for the kids would be a nice start.

kids look at pictures more than read so it would be a good start to get members to adhere to the rules of the shoutbox and the site
