RE: Update: Spam Prevention
Hmm, I don't really think so. Today you have email verification everywhere. It's standard procedure for every crappy forum, shop or even blog comments out there.
I understand, but dont we hate it.
Also, to say, 'every' would be too far-fetched, cause most of them dont.
Also, forums are topic specific, so the people who are willing to go to a forum, have the incentive with them before hand to do all that!
whereas comparing shopping with this site, would be comparing apples with oranges.
People are used to at least this step. And remember: not seeing spam, is inviting people to stay ;-).
Like i said, im not against this step, just giving a drawback which could happen.
Also, people are used to many things, but its not necessary, that those things are good, dont you agree?
as for spamming, yes, it is a major issue. But, there are many more ways to limit them, like the anti-spam bot on discord, isp bans instead of ip bans for persistent users.
And the big ones (google, facebook, twitter, microsoft, apple, and so on) even have phone number verification added on top. It's not going to keep new users away...
Like you said, they are the BIG ONES. Their name, is enough to give new users incentive to join.
So my argument, is not about the security check/email verification being right or wrong.
It is, whether, the new users will go that extra mile, just for a quick chat.
RE: Update: Spam Prevention
thanks, and a great initiative too,
will'nt the multiple security checks, just discourage the new users from entering....
Many people, have an attention span of a goldfish, and to make them go through various verification and other hassles, will just discourage them from interacting.
i understand, that there is no way around, to accommodate both the ease of users, as well as the security, but the new people, have no incentive whatsoever to go through all that hassle.
They haven't interacted with the users already on the platform enough, neither have they got the high from posting topics and posts.
So easier option for them would be to just leave, before even trying.
Update: Spam Prevention
We all are sick of spammers and people who have nothing better to do with their life. Who get the kick out of making things miserable for others. @Global-Moderators have been asking for a security check where new accounts shouldn't be allowed to post on Public Chatroom before verifying their email address. Well now we have implemented it! All accounts need to verify their email before creating a topic or posting on Public Chatroom now.
We hope this will make chat more enjoyable for you all. Also, thank you all @Global-Moderators for the painstaking bans you had to do earlier to stop those idiots.

RE: What is better than falling inlove? :)
@Bunsenlabs That some individuals don't care about any form of currency or materialistic possessions at all.
And some of them care about how much Love you can give.
True, I didn't write all. I just wrote most.
