Captains!

 

Recently we have had a flood of credit card spammers and various other forms of other spamming going on. So we have followed in line with what the forums of our other products have done. We set a minimum battle count before you can post. It is currently set at 10 COMPLETE BATTLES with the exception of the Newcomers and Support sections. This number may come down in the future, but for now this is where it will stay. This shouldn't have an affect on very many of you at all. 

 

If you are a poster with more than 10 battles and you still unable to post, please reach out to me through forum PM so I can look into this. Thanks!!!

 

Should be at least 100 battles to start threads.

I knew that was the reason behind this restriction, but good work Niko. It should take care of the illegal spammers.

Does that mean 10 Random Battles or 10 Battles of any kind?

And, don't indicate to them that the post failed. Tell them it succeeded.

 

(Or use Bayesian pattern recognition and just ditch posts that fail the spam filte)/

10 Complete battles should be good.  Or until they unlock random battles?  I'm not sure how much XP it would require to unlock random battles. but if I remember right it can easily be done in a day with active play.  (Sorry for not remembering the actual numbers or rank required.  was it... 3?)

 

Otherwise I think this is a step in the right direction.  Especially since I tend to see those... things.  late at night =<
