    Lately, I've been seeing maaannny advertisers, not in-game, but on the CCGN forums, many of which have not been deleted? We can't just let advertisers advertise their products! That's why I think you should add a feature that makes it so that you can only post links after you have received 5 likes (Not messages, as you could do that easily)

    I agree, I see a lot of potential in using a like system to stop forum parasites. +1

    I think something should be done about it too, but the 5 or more likes wont really work as they could have another account like them if they are determined enough. I think a good way to stop them though is blocking certain email providers such as the 10 minute mail email domain.

    Most of the advertising is posted by bots, so this would probably help a lot.

    I doubt that this idea itself will ever be added. 5 likes, they'll just make some fake profiles or ask friends.
    A better idea would be to just basically block any IP other than cubecraft's IP, though that can be bypassed too.
