Forum Posts - 15 Character Limit

We added a 15 Character minimum limit for all forum posts to cut down on spam posts. So as a result, I think the games like 5 letter word game will just die off. =\


Actually I found a way to keep it alive. I never expect it to work, but it works

I got a quote from the 4 letters word game. If you quote this post, you will see what I did.

This way is better than using the ".........................." thing. It makes us no different than a spammer.

This is a bad idea, I really hate it. You want it to cut down to a minimum of 15 letters, but all the best games on CR had only wanted us to write down a word shorter than that


What about reading what I posted in this thread, before complaining? It's pretty much simple to get around it. Either you'll add a few dots(...................) to full fill the 15 character limit, or once you've written the tiny word, you'll simply keep on pressing the space bar button for a second, and it's done. Yes, even spaces do count as characters. And when you quote someone, then the 15 character limit doesn't even work.

Yay, someone found out how to solve the 15 character limit issue!!! That definitely deserves a round of applause! /sarcasm
Amazingly this has been found out already yesterday....

Spaces afterwards or before the word...doesn't really matter. And when you quote someone, you don't even need to full fill the 15 character limit.

Other than that, I don't see how dots or no dots could differentiate the spammers from the "good" users

Smart, dude. Real smart.

You know, there are other ways to spam. Sure it might take some time to spam (which can be dealt with copying and paste a bunch of spaces or dots), but if it's like a one letter message or just some useless "ad" then the fifteen letter requirements is not helping. Of course it won't help tell which user's a spammer or normal user. In fact, it's starting to piss off me off, everytime it says I need to make a longer message!

Okay, I'll see if we can make it so that it doesn't count characters within BBcode tags, spaces, dots and other special characters since you all seem to just want to abuse the flaws. =\

The forum games section will probably not be subject to this 15 character limit next week. I was just putting this thread up as a notice for now because I forgot that this limit would affect those small word games.

Everywhere else, if you have something to post that is less than 15 characters, it's probably not work posting. Having to post more will get people to at least think before they type.

Okay, not sure how serious you are about this. It's just a few letters more. No biggie.

It'll be a biggie if the security codes turn into something like what RapidShare had a long time ago. Took me like 20 minutes to get the right code for one download
