You have a history of too many previous claims to be insured for cow loss Im afraid.

However, I can write a policy for implant protection for personal use?

Good Threadside Manner



You just gotta love an admin with good graphics.

Looking good!

This may be another issue. We are talking about the improper use of the u2u messaging system on ATS. Spamming members with thread advertisements is not allowed. As Seekerof said mass-u2u's are reserved for admin only.


Agreed. Inbox and outbox space can get sort of precious when you are saving old messages. The last thing I need is to get full-up and miss messages because 50 people want me to look at their new thread.

Can the size of the send-to box be limited to prevent this? Even though I lament the fact that so many will push problems while so few will pull the sollution, I don't think we need to be plastered with U2Us constantly.

Maybe a "hot thread" alert could be instituted, so that members could access a list of threads which have recieved a high level of applause and/or Way Aboves? (without specifying which posts got the honors in that thread, since i know we dont want the "why did that get applause" debate).
I'm all for being able to view when something is breaking, but not for a million "look at me" U2Us.

Recent threads can be viewed using the today.php page, members interested in a particular area regularly check the appropriate forums for new pages. I don't see any need for new features. This person just kind of went crazy over a topic and decided to circumvent protocol with a mass u2u. It was right he was banned.

I did it once but was not aware of it being in the T&C. Must have been added after the guy complaining about u2u spam posted his thread. Anyways, i'll refrain from doing it a second time.

Same here man, I did it awhile ago though, maybe before this rule, or maybe I worded it right or something.... IDK.

Mr Knowledge, weren't you specifically told not to send spam U2Us less than an hour ago?

Could be trojans on the sites. I didn't click on them. I'm pretty sure I got a trojan from that guy with the 'UFO footage'

mr knowledge
That's the kind of stuff you need to post on a thread, or on multiple threads created by others, if the links are good of course. I didn't check them out because you went about it the wrong way. I assume you're banned by now, and that means I'm talking to myself again...

Mods
I was actually looking at the U2U sent to me by this guy, and I went to forward it to one of you, but I got a message "You're not authorized to use this feature" or something similar, and when I refreshed my inbox the message was deleted. I assume this was because you were deleting his messages at the time? Is he banned now?

Did anyone check out his links? Were they hot(infected) or not? I would have checked them out if he had posted them normally..cancer is one of my topics of interest. Hmm...shame.

As worthy as the cause may be, this is against our clear terms & conditions... the member has been banned, and the messages removed.


As was last week,
so it is now.
