Yeah, I thought so.
Let me lay it out for you.
1. We put a lot of time into coding this thing for us right? I have used up many full days of work working on this addition alone.
2. The games take bandwidth to download.
3. We want to kill off people registering just to play games and never become part of the community before it ever starts.
4. Admins and mods have the same restriction to make it even across the playing field.
5. Don't be mad at me, I'm just trying to use some of my smarts to get this place jumpin'.
Feel free to post your comments and opinions on this. I will be tweaking the error message to ensure the rules are clear we don't want to hear 10 songs you are listening to or 10 words that are similar. (You know what I'm talking about, it's called spam.)
I plan on implementing a paypal donation system where you can donate to CTEN to get monthly free access. But, there may be some other hacks infront of that one, I will look into it.
UPDATE NOTE: A change was needed for the award icons appearing in peoples posts. There are too many games now to display all of them right in the users post. I am however attempting to try and get it so that the # of awards the user has is displayed next to their "Arcade Info" link so that you can quickly see who has a bunch without having to view their actual dropdown link. (37 New Games Added)
Tweaked the post amount required to access the Arcade to 5 posts every week.
I took off any post requirements. This site is dead anyways. I'm not putting any more work into it. Kiss any other hacks bye. Personally... I have better sites to spent my time. I will finish uploading the rest of the games I have but I'm not going to do anything else since nobody even talks. I do my part, but nothing ever comes of it.
IMO this site is a fucking joke.
