Dear All,

We have been working on ways on how we can control the MIDs and Spammers on the site thus making the overall experience of our user a happy one.

Though there have been many small changes but the ones that we would like to highlight to avoid confusions among fans are the following:

  • There have been many members who are just posting the same comment everywhere and at times just irrelevant to the main content on that page. Such posts have been removed and not counted in any of the rankings.


  • MIDs have been a big problem and it has come to our attention that there are a few groups which works in a co-ordinated way to game the system. So we would be deleting such MIDs accounts and all the related posts / comments made through such accounts.


  • In order to fight the spammers to the site we have implemented IP restrictions to not allow new account creation from the same IP within a certain time range.


  • To control the Link Spam we are implementing a 10 posts per day limit for Newbies.



In the event you have more suggestions to improve the site in respect of MIDs and Spammers please do share with us and we will see if we can implement the same.

We hope you all have a great stay on India-Forums.com

Thank u for this VB it is mostly due to the MIDs that fights are caused in the forums and there is loads of bashing

Buh dont u think that it wud be unfair on those who haven't created MIDs and are just new people wanting to join the forums and have healthy discussions that they are only limited to 10 posts a day?

Any who thank u for taking this in to consideration and doing something bout it!

Thank you VB for these changes :) They seem to be really promising!
Spammers have really increased..and as you pointed out they work in groups, especially to bash, which is sad. I am sure this would be under control now!
Restricting creation of accounts within a certain time range is really a good solution to this problem!

Thank you so much!

Okay I am hopeful about the MIDs being gone on II6 forum now. LOL Thank you. But Just one concern that doesn't really affect me but still. So you said "To control the Link Spam we are implementing a 10 posts per day limit for Newbies" But what if someone wants to join the forum and introduce themselves and then also start getting involved in discussions or what not?
