Default Begging on the profiles...

I am TIRED of having random people come to my profile, and leave me a message saying:

"Come join my site! It needs members and it's reaaaally good!!"

or

"Can you post on my thread pretty please?"

I mean, if it was a friend, maybe I would. But it's not. It's RANDOM people posting and begging. I never listen to them; since I consider it spam.

How can we fix this problem?

Please report these types of posts - smitchell

If you see it, report it. It is considered spamming. Advertising for threads is not allowed on any part of the forum, nor is it allowed in profile messages.

You see that happening anywhere, you report it right way, or PM a mod with a link! Then they will take care of it!

Default Re: Begging on the profiles...

Hopefully you know there is the option to block people who are not on your friends' list from posting on your profile. I have turned that on and that's how I control "spam".... I hope this does not include profile posts like "come sign so and so's birthday card" or "I found an interesting thread... check it out"

Thanks

I noticed that the profile posts restriction options are not on the "edit options" page in your control panel when you are using the Webkinz Insider Default colors. In order for these to show, change your colors to "Blue Colors" (see picture below for where to find that option)

Click the image to open in full size.

Then, go to your User CP and Edit Options... You can choose whether or not to receive visitor messages at all, and whether they should be linmited to contacts (friends) and mods only... Then you can change back to the Webkinz Insider Default colors if you like.
