    Default Regarding "Image Macros"

    Hi all

    We've noticed a trend going on in the forums in which users are responding to posts with irrelevant animated images. This, while commonplace in tumblr and other such networks, has no place here and constitutes as spam.

    As such, I need to reiterate that we do not allow this sort of spam here so please desist. You're welcome to post images if they're relevant to the post, but the current trend going on here shall not continue

    From one week from now, any instance of this will be followed by a 5 point infraction.

    Thanks for your understanding

    Just to clarify, this is targetted at the ridiculous animated GIFs people have been using, but is not exclusive to it. Any unrelated image shall be classed as this

    Yes. I'm talking about responses in topics with just the image. Many have been doing it and thus we're stopping it as it is SPAM. Signatures have nothing to do with it.

    Yes, they still would be, it's just that posting gif's and/or random images as a post in reply to a topic is now not allowed. see most misc. threads for examples

    They said IN TOPICS. That doesn't include VMs, PMs, Signatures, or whatever.

    Never seen any in any non-games topic, guess that's because I don't go to the Misc. Discussions a lot....

    Yes. Pointless images that hold no bearing on the topic whatsoever

    It's one of the games in the Games forum, simply post a picture until somebody else's makes you laugh. Then you lose.

    Why is this hard to get for everyone...?
    The banning is on images that aren't relevant to discussion at all. So clearly, in a thread that requires posting images, they're going to be allowed.

    Take a look at Anime Spoilers. A lot of the popular threads there have people (playerking, Dax, The 4th KIRA, even me on a couple occasions) posting random gifs of Lady Gaga saying "No," or some random Glee character making a face.

    In Anime Spoilers. That's the irrelevant part. Those are the posts being outlawed. >_>

    if it is ON TOPIC with the game then that is okay.



    the point of this topic is to stop people from replying to a discussion thread with just an (often unfunny and completely stupid) image macro. it's not clever and it's spam, so you will be infracted as such.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Hm...I haven't seen any of these yet. Hopefully I never will :/
    I'm just letting you all know that I will not be returning to Serebii. I've lost interest. But please remember to visit my DeviantART!

    I think I've done this a couple of times in the Gender Race game. I'll stop.

    For the remainder of this week, will irrelevant images simply be punished with a 3-Point infraction (the norm for spam)?

    Thank god is all I can say. It's getting really grating in Anime Spoilers with certain members posting gifs ad nauseam.
