    people are just shitting up this website with discussionless posts trying to get these perks. make an alternative way to achieve them, or change the requirements.

    If people spam the forum with low quality posts in an attempt to get closer to these, they will not be allowed the perks. If you see people doing this, please report them so it helps us keep the forum stable.

    However, this is a valid suggestion - if this becomes too much of an issue, we can possibly rework it into something. We'd love to hear your suggestions on other options since it is limited on a forum, and likes are equally as hazardous to deal with, if not more.

    the conversation thread is basically used by people to rack up their post count so they could join the secret club as fast as possible

    I definitely took note of that and mentioned it to the others. If there's particular users that become repeat offenders, we have the option to take away their rights from AGF and ED so they don't get the perks they're attempting to spam for.

    you could basically use members list to check people with highest post count and see half of their useless ass replies

    also make the requirements for the club not post or like counts but something else (i dont know what though). because by that you're telling them to shitpost more so they can be part of Secret Snowflake Club, it doesnt really tell them to be active and be part of the forums

    Honestly I just want the page edit thing. The secret forums could potentially be a threat since it's practically .. undocumented? Or suggest removing the posts from counting in the conversations to prevent farming.

    I have been trying to refrain from spamming the forums and have instead been taking part in other forum posts.

    >refrain from spamming the forums
    >has been spamming since they joined the forums
    >taking part in other forum posts by posting their own art in another artists thread, replies to comments in art threads when its not their art thread

    upside down question marks

    I haven't been spamming wdym.

    I was at the beginning until I read the rules lmfao?

    Plus I deleted those comments and apologized. You sure love holding grudges don't you.
    There's a difference between being active on the forums more than you and spamming.
    If I were spamming from the beginning to now, I would've most likely been banned at this point.

    This topic does qualify for targetting since it was made after you guys started to bash on me for being highly active in the forums.

    Yes I do agree to somewhat spamming in the first 250 messages, but there's literally no point to spamming any more. Having a conversation with someone isn't spamming.

    This is ridiculous to be starting an argument over numbers on a screen.

    but the messages in conversation shouldnt automatically be looked at as spam unless someone in that thread is typing "ajdsalnds" between posts and admitting they just want their message count up :/ the reason the thread is there IS to have conversation so of course it'll be active and someone may be on it a long time but if theyre contributing to the convo or just talking to someone it shouldnt be seen as spam...

    unless they should implement something where you cant get your message count up by talking on the conversation thread like they did to the forum games section if that's possible

    Maybe the same rules that apply to becoming moderation on here should be the same rules that apply towards having perks?

    Show Spoiler
    "How to become a mod

    - Conduct yourself in a mature fashion at all times.
    - Make quality posts. Quality over quantity.
    - Start interesting threads that attract people to post in them.
    - Be active and helpful in the community.
    - Make friends with other members.
    - Report posts that break the rules or don't add any value to a discussion.
    - Go above and beyond. The more your contributions make you stand out from the average user, the better chance you have to become a moderator.
    - Be patient. Don't expect that to do all this then magically one month later become a mod."


    if this is what grincreep meant by having the rules of becoming a mod apply to perks than thats a great idea! it will lessen the chance of people who just spam to get in for the sake of wanting to get in
    but if they don't want to do that maybe they really should disable the convo thread being a way to get your message count up (i hope that's possible though, if it's not then that's understandable)

    Here! Scroll down to misc faqs! I really think these rules should apply to perks. If not, there would be so many undeserving people of perks.

    yeah these rules would be great for setting a standard on how people can gain access to special perks and but one thing, how would moderators/admins be able to pick out users that have followed these rules? would they have to open an application for those that want access to these perks or do they just surf through accounts endlessly to find people that fit this criteria? it would be a lot of work unlike the message count thing because you would be automatically granted the ability to use the perks once you hit a certain message count instead of having to be approved

    Well, admins and mods do keep an eye on everyone anyway to an extent, correct? And hope that the spammers and shitposters get reported. I would think that if they find certain people they enjoy who post quality over quantity, eventually those individuals would receive perks once they reach the amount of posts for each perk. I would assume that if an individual who receives perks starts spamming or shitposting, they would have the perks privileges removed.

    I think the title should be changed to improve, instead of remove.

    I think it should stay as it is atm to see how it's going, then maybe the requirements can be adjusted a bit. I'll think at some a bit later! Either way, this is a nice method to make players more active. I can't wait to get that

    no, I'm not gonna spam for it BAHAHA

    ooh i see what you mean! that's a good idea, thank you for the clarification :p they should probably look into doing something like this to lessen the chance of just giving perks to those undeserving like you have stated before

    Hi everyone!!! We have noticed there are a considerable amount of users who aren't posting things that contribute to the forum/have discussion value and we have spoken about possibly disabling the conversation thread's post count.
    Also as some of you have noted/suggested, we will be revoking the perks of being an AGF or ED if a user chooses to continuously spam to get up to 1,000 messages.
    Overall, we have been discussing this topic often and are finding out ways to improve the requirements! We will post further updates soon.
