Default Re: Tagging People in Threads Suggestion.

I agree with Webberlily.
WI is getting hit by trollers more and more often. To tag people and to have them see it could be harmful, especcially if the attack is made from multiple trollers, and they work fast- I wouldn't be surprised if 3 or 4 trollers managed to tag everyone on WI at the time by tagging.

PMing has a limit of 5 people, so you can use that.
A Lil Kinz, with 10 posts and a day becomes a webkinz- not so difficult, and I'm almost certain they can see VMs either way.
In terms of those not allowed to recieve PMs as punishment, ask them to subscribe.
This system would be efficient, however there is a risk, and due to the fact we have kids under the ages of 13 on this site, or even anyone under 18 actually, a lot of the content posted by trollers and spammers is very disturbing and innapropriate.
And there's no way we can create a system to increase the efficiency of that as well, no matter how helpful it would be, since the risks outweigh it.
The needs of the many outweight the needs of the few.

Webberlily is right, there are plenty of younger users on WI and we have to make sure they don't get hurt.

As I've said before about mass VM... the harm done by one bad spammer outweighs the convenience. Yes we could take away privileges, but that would be after the harm was done.

Safety comes first. There are a lot of young members on this site, who need protection.
I see your point. It's sad that one bad seed would just ruin it for all.

It could be bad because some people might tag the people, even if they aren't in a contest or anything. Then it could lead to a lot of miscommunication and stuff like that.

Default Re: Tagging People in Threads Suggestion.

Is it possible that tagging people could be a privilege? Maybe have a thread where you could go get approved for it like the GE?
I'm pretty sure that might solve the problem of annoying trollers, as there are none of those that get to be Gifted....
