Dear ??11??, You have received a warning at PbNation. http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?p=77678719
Reason: ------- Post Spam Post spam is non-commercial spam posted by a user. Generally this can mean anything off topic posted in the thread. There are too many kinds of post spam to even begin to list them all, but here are the most common types you need to avoid while posting on PbNation.
Excessive Spacing Spam
- This involves adding spaces to a post that aren't needed forcing other users to scroll down.
First Post Spam
- Please do not type “first post, second post," etc. even if you are indeed the first poster in a thread.
- This is a link that claims to be one thing but actually goes somewhere else. Sometimes these are done as pranks.
- Multiple posts or threads about the same thing, even posted in different sections, is spam.
- This can range from stating the glaringly obvious to posting "ibc," "pwnd," "drink bleach" or any other comment that doesn't further the thread. Putting an excessive amount of spaces or repeating the thing said by a previous poster can also apply as non-contributing spam.
Picture or Video Spam
- This involves posting a picture or video that adds nothing to the thread. Often people try to do this to be funny, but it's mostly annoying.
Repetitive Post Spam
- This involves posting the exact same thing as previous posters in the same thread. You can always agree with other users but please say why.
- Some threads are dedicated to pictures only. Some allow some text after the picture and some allow no text at all. Read the first post in the thread for rules. Quoting a previous picture in the thread then posting text is also not allowed. These threads are not for discussion.
- You'll notice various trends or fads on PbNation that will come and go. Try not to get caught up in them. There have been way too many to list, but just because "everyone else is doing it," doesn't mean it's OK.
- Posting in a thread just to bring it to the top is spam. This is especially frowned upon with old threads or with inappropriate threads that violate PbN rules. If you find a thread a mod should see, just report it, don't post in it and take it to the top. -------
