No more Dark Throne links (in Off-topic)

AdminJonathan September 9 2005 8:21 AM EDT

As of now, Dark Throne and other "click to give me referral points" crap is not welcome in OT or any other CB forum. It's gotten out of hand.

ok that really is out of hand.

just for clarification -
if you do find a neat game, and you want to share it with the rest of CB, and it does give some sort of bonus for referrals, it is completely banned in any form except for chat or CMs?
Or could we submit a link to be put on the out-of-BA page that had our referral link?

thats where million players on online game comes in :) Plenty on forums so there are people that will click links and don't have to worry about being banned.

The way I read it, if you find yourself wanting to say "Hey, I found a cool little waiting-for-BA game", then ok... Put a link in the forums if it's something you want to discuss or have to download to enjoy. Otherwise submit it to the out-of-BA page.

If, on the other hand, you find yourself wanting to say "Even though this game was already mentioned in the forums, I want to post it simply to get some referral points" then go post it someplace else, we've already seen it and don't want to see it again.
