Private Messages/PMs
« on: February 19, 2010, 01:00:52 am »
I know now that PMs have been banned for awhile. I can appreciate why they are banned, but perhaps a not-so-strict rule could be in place?

I realize it is fairly easy for users to get 100+ posts, but maybe (just MAYBE) you guys could lift the ban on all regular users, and allow only the people that are at least going to try and post the priviledge to PM people? I read what was said about needing to keep all the garbage off the fourms and because so many people were abusing  the system, but I know there's a way to customize what user classes can use the private message system. Just make it so user class 3 or above can send out 5 pms max an hour or something cool like that....Would be very, very nice.

I think they don't want people sharing referral links to other sites, secretly through PM's. At least they can track that and ban the perpetrators through the regular forums.

Well, as I said, I know that part of it. That's why I posted a solution - make it harder for people to be able to send PMs - only certain people that have shown continued dedication to the forums should be allowed that priviledge!

It just creates a further incentive for people to post garbage to get better PM privileges to do more spamming.  It's nice to think that everyone with x number of posts or $y in earnings is trustworthy, but the real world doesn't work like that.

How about people have to have been payed 3 times for their monthly forum posting? That way, you know the posts were good quality, and they've been posting for so long that you know they're trustworthy.

How about finding the person you want to PM off the forum?

That's difficult to implement, and I believe it would still be abused.

The truth is - when PMs were allowed, some of the most "trustworthy" users (most posts/most cashouts) were the main ones abusing the system. FusionCash has not built itself to allow members to trade referral links through PM, which is the only thing PMs were ever used for in the past.

What if it were possible to PM staff only? Or do you prefer everything to go through the trouble ticket system...

 i think that we should be able to use it.  I know some people don't follow rules, but they could block them.
