Good way to fill the forum with spammers wanting to reach 20 posts
19 to go...

Soon this url will magically work: notgames.org/

Hey all,

Same problem here. Makes sense, I've managed a forum before and I get the logic behind it.

Just curious: does the 20 post rule include comments on a thread, or is it only in the creation of new threads? I'd assume it's all of them, otherwise it there'd be way too many threads with no purpose other than to legitimize new accounts.

Let me know, as we're also looking to promote a game of ours, and it is a bit unfortunate we can't post links since we're using a new account here on the forums.

It's working. Spammers don't reach 20 posts so it's fine

Plus people can copy/paste urls

I just wanted to post a thread about my new game and find some beta testers. Now the post I created just looks terrible and likely people will assume I can't even post properly. It just makes me look bad.

It doesn't. Most people know about the rule for low post counts and many users have commented on it helps the forum when it comes to spammers.
