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.

Edit 2: due to reaction spam, this feature is restricted for users with 10 posts or more.

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!

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.

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.

Well yeah, just sucks that it's necessary is all I'm saying.
Before I wanted to do something relative to this sometime ago. For ones that's known a forum called ZooBB. I wanted to implement something like they had before. But that was hiding media till they reached a certain post count.

wouldve been a great Idea...use a random number post as the trigger. Anywhere from twenty to one hundred with no way to tell what it will be. Admin could maybe have vetted⁰ this stuff before the correct number hits, and be able to blow a badguy out of the water before anyone else saw it.
