Thanks Vijay bhaiya,

Its really a good news and it shall get rid of all those spammers. Really tired of seeing them keep opening new posts every now and then and their usual 'Who was that lady in today's segment?', 'Twisted story today' and etc. I shall now save my time trashing those posts Smile

    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.

These are good rules!Clap They will not only stop those spammers who are posting random ads on IF but also the MIDs members create to comment on their favorite celebrity's profile.

 
I have one more suggestion.
 
Could you form a rule that says that if a member does not use his/her account to comment on posts, they lose the right to comment on TB articles? I know it sounds unfair, but so many people create MIDs to comment on celebrities' profiles and they don't make posts in the forum lest they are found out. This way, it will prevent many MIDs from achieving their purpose.
 
I think members should have 100 posts before being allowed to comment on TB articles or celebrities' profiles.

Way to go... Vijay sir... this MID thing is much needed.. Thumbs Up

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.

Well it is applicable to all the fanclubs. And if there have been a decrease in any of the fanclubs then be sure that we have enough reasons to believe that they were MIDs / Spammers.

Vijay

Hey Vijay, thanks for the new rules! These will help a great deal, esp the one where an ID from the same IP can't be created in a short span.
