Due to the amount of spam accounts, we have restricted the PM function again.

-New accounts will be REQUIRED to make at minimum 10 forum posts in relevant sections (not fun and games) to gain access to the PM function. This is due to ongoing spam and harassment of newly made user accounts. Lurker accounts will NOT be able to PM until they have recieved atleast 10 forum posts.

Edit: This only applies to accounts created after this post. All older accounts are grandfathered in the old ruleset, so report them and we will ban them slowly over time.

Clarification request: are they just restricted from initiating PMs or can they still receive and respond. We all know how many lurkers want telegram/etc invites and or 1 time personal posts desperately "message me!"

I still see the moderator thing pop up even though my account is pretty old. Maybe I should stop being a lurker to fix that? Haha

My other account, @Udder_Supremacy was banned for spam, even though it was several months old. Could you please unban it?

Dang! That'd be annoying. Ive been here a few years and I've made like 3 posts. This could get ugly. If I might induce a reccomendation? Maybe change it to comments or even likes on comments or something so the forums don't get spammed with meaningless garbage. Either way definitky progess in a good direction!

Honestly somebody that wants to involve themselves I don't think 10 posts is too much to ask. Personally I'd set it at 13. Number of change..

Unfortunate that it's come to that.

This isn't a porn site, this is a site that has porn. Considering this will lower harassment without being too crazy (like 100 posts), it will encourage people to become somewhat active members of a forum, where you're supposed to talk. I don't mind lurkers at all, but if you want to participate you have to participate.

Was getting fed up with the constant harassment. And then life got busy. I’ll try to be on here more but it was hard to want to when it just was bringing frustration.

my intent is to still make like minded friends and possible meet even if just platonic ^^. This change will definitely help in that
I feel ya on that part.

Well in 4 years time I got over 2000 posts on BF. Shame they didn't just transfer over. Really need to redo my primary thread from there here. Eventually in future time. As far as right now. ZT is still on my shit list along with 2 others. So I honestly don't know yet how exactly active I will continue to be here. Not going away unless I get banned because of that personal disagreement. But I'm also not backing off.. it was wrong and that's that

I bet you it won't slow certain people down much, but I understand the sentiment and idea behind this.
Thanks again for the mods who're trying to keep this a proper and nice community.
 
This is splendid! I've gotten quite annoyed with the constant messages from people eager to see my tits or asking me to come fuck their dogs. I can't even log on for a second and have a chance to breathe without getting notified of private messages about hookups, and the usual; "My dog is horny and ready to fuck!" Typically, it's people who have posted little to no valuable content on here, granted I, myself, am hardly active on Zooville. This was an issue I dealt with back when Beastforum was still around.

I don't necessarily want to disable PMs altogether. Hopefully, this should help lessen those who just go compile a bunch of accounts to go around and ask for nudes and sex in isolated chit-chats.

Nature of the beast really. Sucks I know, but it’s expected around a place like this. It attracts zoos and the thirsty alike. Just flip the bird and cross another off the list. The circle is small, but there are good people here as well.
