Default Re: Shout Box

Even if we did put a post limit on it that wont stop. Cause a comment can be made in there that could rub someone the wrong way and cause more emotions to flare and next thing you know a debate breaks out with words that shouldnt be allowed.

It is jsut so much that can go wrong with a Shout Box over what benefits it would give us.

2000 post limit would barely be anyone.
That was just an example. 500-1000 range would be more reasonable.

thats what im saying, why not just ban/temp ban the people who break the rules, that way it would be unlikely that someone would break the rules, and when someone did, they would face the consequences. A temp ban, then a full ban. I think with those things considered the moderation needed would be low, and the rules would not be broken often. But i agree, it isn't really needed and is adding more work for you guys.
