They must have changed the rules once again. Under level 25 it was 600 a day and max 200 in one thread as I remember.
Okay I get it, you have to have rules to prevent certain things from happening, but gosh darnit these rules sometimes really hurt someone like myself who doesn't require said rules! What am I talking about? Well if you're a newbie here and like to chat you're in for a surprise! Under level 10, you're not allowed to post 100 messages in one single thread. O_o
It gets better. If you're level 25 and under you may not and will not have more than 20 posts in an hour, now someone like myself that is a real chatterbox this is completely and utterly fubar'd! I know it's to prevent "flooding" but really GS, I mean you're more strict than a pe'od foster parent with little things like posting in the wrong thread etc. So why can't you find a better way to restrict new users without handcuffing the good members like mysefl! Grrr I guess there's no point complaining cause my woes aren't going to change GS policy, but at least you've now been officially warned by a self-proclaimed chat-oholic! lol
i didn't know about the Level 25 one O_o I guess I don't post that often...that I did..oh well :D it is annoying at times though...and it always happens when you NEED to post.
Has it always been like that? :| I don't recall any restrictions except for user signatures. At least the site is running smoothly. A year or two ago it wasn't even GameSpot; it was GlitchSpot. That's seriously what everyone called it.
Yeah, those restrictions are rather lame. Although that said, I recall back in the day when those restrictions weren't in place, and how crazy things were. Off-topic was 2048x the cesspool it is today(actually, OT today isn't too bad...so that's not saying much, but in 2004 or 05 it was an abomination, and arguments in system wars held more logic and relevance). I do think that past X amount of posts, you should be set free. I suppose they expect folks to fill out their profiles to gain points, but most people don't.
Wow, I never knew this rules exist. :lol: Guess I wasn't really "chatty" Oh and when you type the @ don't put a space between the names, since we don't actually receive a notification if you put a space there.
Too many people to respond to one by one so I'll just say thanks to all for your input, I know in the end my concerns will be rendered moot once I level up enough, still annoying however. :P
I'm just the opposite. I post so relatively little that I am always afraid I do not have enough posts given my level (level 39), and having been here for about 5 years, I don't think it would be enough. I never knew these restrictions even existed. But I wish you success. Remember, if you want to level up faster, use every part of the site, not just the forums!
Be glad we have such rules around here. The idea of getting spammed and cussed out by some cyberbrat doesn't seem too appealing to me. lol Thank God this isn't youtube. :P
I see and yes the rules are a pain to follow and to be honest I have been complaining about the rules but you just need to do your best to follow them to avoid moderations because too much moderations will result in a ban, that's GameSpot for you.
Yeah, I know, it sucks, but I put up with it and now I'm all good, just hang in there, you'll be free someday, and I would love to see that! As a Level 35 about to be a level 36, I should know that.
@ polsci1503 Indeed @ megahaloman64 Yes, getting there, at least level ten will be one restriction lifted, although If I create a Union, like what, I can't have more than a 100 posts in my own Union? lol We'll see.
It's because the man who created the rules for this site is joseph stalin. Almost level 5, nice job.
yep, there are all sorts of rules around here, flaky features and ban hammer happy mods. All in all though it's a solid place to hangout.
@ Kid_Black_Star If I worried about my level that would have made me feel better! lol But seriously it sucks, I always miss out on good conversations. :(
:lol: I remember whn i was round you level i used to hate these damn restrictions at different levels but you can make it to level 10 fast so enjoy that fast leveling up while you can although i agree with you the newbies need some freedom
