I'm getting this error when trying to submite a guide :S
and im not rly into spamming just to get more posts xD
You should really re-evaluate your anti spamming measures. You've got a captcha on registration and searches. You've got an email verification requirement. And now you've got a minimum posting level before you can add URLs to your post. You've reached the point where you're hurting a real human with all of these hoops:
All I was trying to do was participate in your "Be nice, not naughty!" giveaway but your own systems prevent me from doing so. I'm not willing to spam 10 posts just to get around your arbitrary and ineffective spam measures. This is the kind of heavy handed treatment that'll make me get my WoW related news elsewhere.
the minimum is 10 posts
i'm pretty sure the minimum is 20 posts
Its not really that hard to post ten times.
Oh no, poor leeches can't get a chance for free things. Imagine needing to actually contribute to the community in order to be eligible for a contest with prizes with real life value. If you signed up just to enter a contest, personally I don't think you deserve to enter. Maybe that's just me.
TCG loot requires that you buy a card, either by getting lucky or purchasing the specific card from another site. All of the TCG loot prizes for this contest sell for ~$100+. According to wowtcgloot, who is providing said prizes, the mottled drake is worth upwards of $300. The Pet pack prizes cost real money to acquire from the blizzard store, as well. This is what I mean when I say real life value. It's not like the prize is a pet rock and a stack of herbs.
There are many things in place to prevent ads, spam and other such undesirable posts from appearing on the site. They are not meant to punish a new user, but to protect the community as a whole against things that no one wants to see in the first place. Granted it may be an inconvenience to someone who just singed up to post for the contest, however earning 10 posts isn't a big deal.
Oh i was wondering why i could not post to enter the new Christmas comp! Good to know!
Hey now, some of us just don't wish to post and instead lurk
Or our english is not perfect. Feeling shameful not being able to write without typos or making mistakes unintentionally...
I perfectly understand english but it takes me a lot of efforts to write in it, and making 10 posts would take me 10 times the effort it takes you to do it
Anyway, so be it, merry christmas nonetheless
yer thaat rule is anoying with the contest
