Default This Rule

Personally, I think if we prove that we are active members on VT (100 posts to send a PM) and we havent broken any "rules" that truely can cause a problem for VT and the people who use it, I think it would be reasonable to say that if we make friends on VirtualTeen.org we should be able to share our SN's to CHAT with them. NO MODERATORS WE DONT WANT TO CAM WITH PEOPLE.

Rule should be:

- If for some reason someone does ask you to "cam" with them after you get their SN (and break the rule) that they be reported to VT and have their IP address logged and permanently banned from Virtual Teen.org


(DOES THAT SOUND REASONABLE ENOUGH)

For the people who say: "Take the time to PM your friends on here"

Who says we have the time to say on VT ALL DAY and "chat" with a slow system and not an Instant Messaging System ( IM )

You can enter your msn, yahoo, etc. in your user control panel. You can also find out others by going to someone's profile under contact info.

Not EVERYTHING is puberty, look around before posting. Seriously, it will save you a lot of time. HQ

There's already been questions like this asked. Again look around before you post. You'll find your answer.

+Rep Siobhan.



Yes, there are a number of threads about this.
Due to the VM system that was put in place a few months (?) ago, they changed it. They see it has, why can't you just VM until you have 100 posts to PM.

That's the rule already. I don't get what's so hard to understand about the new rule. Using VM's instead of PM's isn't the end of the world. The rule is in place for the safety of the members here.

If you want more information see here. But the rule will not be changing any time soon.

If you want to talk to someone outside of Vt, then direct them to your contact details that you can put on your profile.

The problem is I use aim on my cellphone and ipod when I don't have time to be on my computer.

I think my prospective is a legitimate argument.

And I DO THINK this rule should change, and for the persons safety (REPORT ANY ISSUES THAT YOU MAY HAVE WITH OTHER PEOPLE)

I understand where you're coming from. I think a hundred is a little bit too much, and when people are like, "just ask them for their info or direct them to yours", I'm just like, "well, they can't PM them to ask, so that makes no sense." But it's for the safety because not everyone will report because they could be doing it, or the person receiving it might not care or like it. But the senior staff have already concluded, and I know for a fact they will not change it because a couple hundred new members don't think it's fair or something, when they'd be the ones to cam and stuff.

Yes, you may. But that doesn't mean other members automatically do the same. The rule is in place for people to be kept safe. If people wish to add you, or add others they can look on your profile for your contact details.

OK, well (" Ant ")

This rule needs to be more flexible for the people who don't do what your trying to prevent.

Ants the admin
Why should the rule be more flexible
and how are we to tell who is or isnt going to do what were preventing?

This is exactly the point. Maybe you're not, but at least the majority of the people who are so unable to hold back from constantly asking to chat are camming, and over time that has shown no signs of changing. This is a forum, not a chat meet up. While we have no problem with established members chatting - that would be absurd - the majority of <100 posters asking for IMs are going to break the rules. It's a safety issue. For anyone who intends to stay a lasting member of this site, 100 posts really isn't much.

Every cammer says "I'm not camming"... nothing meant about this thread by that, of course. *cough*

You are the ground upon which I blizzard.

I'm open to suggestions but so far the current system seems to work pretty well. I understand that its frustrating but it definitely beats having this site loaded with cammers and predators.

Maybe it should be raised to 250. The obvious cammers who complain about the rule might give up if it means they have to post a lot.

The spamming is easily sorted, but it would be unfair to raise the pm post count further and it will probably cause more arguments than there is now. 100 posts is safe enough and is a fairer deal.

I'm all for increasing the amount of posts needed. I find it hilarious watching all the new members crying because they can't Pm.

That just makes it unecisarily harsh
since if they spam to 100
well notice
if they spam to 250
then its just overkill
and a pain for us to clean up as it just adds more shit to do
and more people bitching about the pm limit
