Clan Ad Spam Rule

Postby kaw on May 30 2013, 2:21pm

Hi everyone,

To help combat the growing rise in Clan Ad Spam taking over world chat, we will be enforcing the following new rule:

Clan Ad spam - is when 5 or more posts of the same clan ad (or different ads for the same clan) occur within 5 minutes.

The 5th player and any others beyond this threshold will be silenced.

In summary: Each clan is allowed 4 ads per 5 minutes.

This rule will take full effect on Friday, June 7th at 12:01 am - PST.
The week preceding this will be a grace period in which to learn the new rule and ask questions about it.

The end goal is to still allow clans to advertise while creating space for actual conversation in world chat again.

NOTE: It does not matter if you are in the clan you post the ad for. It is the content of the post that is reviewed, not clan affiliation. This should prevent non clan members trying to get a clan in trouble, as only the 5th ad and later are silenced.
