Spam accounts

Post by Puckohue »

Sorry, I just need to vent. I'm spending an unreasonable amount of time deleting spam accounts. Can't believe someone finds these forums so interesting to post spam links on.

Another thing is that I have to block more and more e-mail domains, and one day I might have blocked a domain in use by an actual potential player. Then again, maybe not.

Venting agreed with! It is ridiculous. :(

Give us some warning before you block gmail.com and I'll add an alternative to my account!

Surprised you didn't just ask for 200L. Or more.

But your use of £ it got me wondering if most (all?) players are UK-based. Where's everyone from? I'm guessing, from the above, that Broar is UK, as am I.

Correct, indeed I am in the UK as is at least one other player I know of so with you also coming from the UK that makes 3 of us Brits! Actually this seems to have quite a nice little community feel about the game / players even though we are all (unless any of the players are actual friends) anonymous to each other. It's just a shame that poor Broar doesn't seem to have many mates in the game, especially what with him being a Healer and thus a friend to all....... :)

I'm from the Uk as well. The timing of posts on the forum would suggest that all the active contributors are within European timezones.

I did invite some friends to join fairly recently, but they've all dropped out or suffered character death and decided not to continue for the time being, which is a shame as I thought they would enjoy it once they found their feet.

Likewise - Broar has previously announced himself as a politician. With elections just having happened, I am curious. Did Broar gain or lose a seat...... :D

Broar will doubtless claim he only failed to win a seat due to my evil influence (Myah ha ha! - must practice my evil genius laugh). I am also UK based, from Canterbury in my case.
