    I know this has been suggested many times before, but I will still make this because of what happened today...

    If you don't know what happened today, it probably got removed and the user(s) banned. I have archived the page so you can understand what happened...

    Not letting members post links without 5/10/15 likes has been suggested before, but this spammer did not have any links in his messages.

    My suggestion is that members should not be able to post more than 1 thread every day or post any links for the first week on the forums (anywhere but in the report a player section). That would probably get rid of a lot of the advertisers and spammers.

    You cant just ban an entire country, that would be discriminating. What if an Indian person comes along and tries to post something?
    I do understand that IP banns would help pretty good. But banning an entire country? I dont think that's the solution.

    We're talking about the same thing, blocking any IP that comes from India. In my opinion, that cannot be done, as if a player from India wants to enter CubeCraft (server or forum), why would he not be able to if he hasn't done anything?

    Somebody said that, and I replied to it. And that's similar to the original thread.
