We've noticed that some people love to spam or post nonsense in threads, so instead of just dismissing and deleting these spam posts, we will be taking this issue more seriously in order for the spammers to learn.

Starting today, we will be implementing a spam prevention system.

This is to reduce the spam posts and also give punishment to those who spam.

Also, those who post only with the intention increase their post count (doing things like posting in every thread in a section with nonsense posts, or saying "Thank you" in every thread even though there is already a thanks button available) will be dealt with accordingly. We will be deleting/marking posts like that and handing out proper punishment.

In short...

What counts as SPAM?

This is some of what constitutes as spam:

-Posting only emoticons.

-Posting things that have nothing to do with the topic.

-Posting redundant things ("OMG the crowd at the show was so big!") to get your post count up.

-Posting in several threads just to get your post count up / posting in several threads in a short time frame. You cannot post more in than 10 threads in one forum within a TWO HOUR TIME FRAME.



So here is how it will go....


If the staff sees a post like this one for example...

User wrote:OMG MAMIIIIIIII!!!!!!!


A huge SPAM word will be placed on it...

User wrote:SPAM

OMG MAMIIIIIIII!!!!!!!

____________________________________________________________

Once the member receives 3 SPAM words on 3 different posts, he/she will be given the SPAMMER crown and have it for one week.



____________________________________________________________

A member is only limited to receive 2 SPAMMER crowns.

Once he/she receives the crown for the 3rd time, they will receive a punishment:

A temporary account suspension


--------------------------------------------------

If a member currently has the SPAMMER Crown, he/she will be carefully observed, meaning that spamming even more will result in a punishment.

WARNING: If the member who was given the word SPAM edits and removes the word SPAM on his/her post, he/she will be immediately banned for doing that.

--------------------------------------------------

UPDATE

There will now be a SPAM Alert Level located in your profile.

Clean -

1st Warning -

2nd Warning -

SPAMMER Crown -

1 SPAM minus 1 level. Once you reach the final one that will be the time you will receive the SPAMMER Crown.


If you guys want to quickly check on your post that was SPAM-ed you can easily check it through:

View Profile -> Statistics Tab -> View all posts by "your username"

--------------------------------------------------

Please make sure to be aware of these rules:

-No posting in more than 10 threads in a forum within a TWO HOUR TIME FRAME.

-A forum means the main forum of any sub-forum that is under the main forum.

-No posting more than a maximum of 25 posts on the entire site in 24 hours.


Ex: One member decides to post in the SCANDAL Gallery forum. This means that all of his/her posts in that forum including the sub-forums (Blog, Live, Official, Magazine, Miscellaneous) may add up to no more than 10 posts per 2 hours in that entire forum.


-The same applies to every forum, SCANDAL or not SCANDAL related.

-Violation of this rule will result in the offending posts to be considered as spam,and the offending member will be dealt with as a spammer.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition to that new rule for spamming, another update:

Posts like "So-and-so is so cute I can't stand it xoxoxoxoxo","Thanks for the translation!" "Thanks for the pics!" "Thanks for farting!" is fine,but not in several threads at once. You're grateful,we get it. There is no need to spill your gratitude into 10 threads. We also understand the need to spazz over these 4 cute girls, but, again, keep it down to a reasonable amount. Copious posts like these will result in the member being dealt with as a spammer.

-----------------------------------------------------------------



If you know your posts aren't spam, you have nothing to worry about.

Ignorance of these rules is not an exemption.

Like I said just discuss according to the topic and you have nothing to worry about. Onion Smile

Spam has really gotten worst unlike before, so I just felt that now's the right time to do this.

Updated first posts regarding the SPAM Alert Level.

Better check your profile and see whether your bar is still full. Common

There, someone just got temporarily suspended for removing the SPAM word in his posts.

This is a warning to those who will remove the SPAM word in the future.
