View Full Version : Just a little suggetion
I was wondering would it be possible to lock any thread that had the wods "free ps3" in them because they are just spam and have no use in the forums. Also people seem to be posting more of them and they are becoming very annoying. Anyways just seeing if it were possible to do that. Thanks.
Yes but just ignore them instead. Also they don't make very many posts after they do that. Also telling these people to read the rules won't do anything as they don't care at all/won't come back.
I went in some chat rooms before and every day there would be someone come in and say the "freeipods" three times then leave right away after so...
Such threads/posts should always be deleted by staff as they are nothing more than advertisements trying to trick people into giving them money. If you see any of these please let staff know.
I think he might mean some sort of Filter on the Thread titles and or posts that delete them automaticly when picked up by the filter.
Yeh Playstation4life pretty much got it spot on.
Some mod that will scan the thread titles when someone submits, if it contains Free PS3 or whatever, just delete the post, or move it to a administrator/moderator forum for further inspection.
Possibly you could even PM the person saying that the topic was moved because it contained material that wasnt allowed or something similar, and that it will be checked up on by someone and then they can get in touch with them, move it back possibly if it was just an error, or warn/ban if it wasnt..lol
I'll try look to see if theres any decent mods for this
Yeah that would be perfect. A filter o mov ethe thread somewhere or have them deleated. Lik the language filter only a moving filter. I hope there's a mod for it.

a filter could help alot here. I think that can slow down spam some.
ok, can i please set the record straight, although they are spam, it is true that some of them are legit and do work. the trick is you need to get like a bunch of other friends to sign up too but the...

Yeah, there was even an article about some of these working in a magazine, I think it was PSM or Electronic Gaming Monthly...
Anyways, a Filter wouldn't work for such a thing, because someone could make a post names "PS3 Will Come With Free Demo Disc" and it would delete that topic also.
For now, it looks like we'll just have to ignore the creators of such posts and let the mods deal with them.
Another sad day for mobile gamers and fans of the hit God of War franchise. Circulating rumors over the past few weeks have finally materialized in the form of a Sony press release today.
During the Leipzig gamers convention, information released detailed the title expected for Christmas will now be pushed into 2008. With this news coming from abroad, we hoped it might just be a European delay, but a quick check of online retailers proved otherwise. GoW was expected by Christmas, but now according to an online check of major retailers, we are looking at anywhere from January to end of April.
PSU on the other hand likes to play devil's advocate and think delaying a game isn't the most detrimental news. With rumors of Oblivion being scrapped and much longer delays, maybe this is a blessing in disguise. We will venture to guess gamers would much rather see a perfectly polished game and wait a month, then rushing this powerhouse before the holidays.
Stay tuned to PSU for more information on GoW.
