no coz if u dont have enough postcount u can still trade on risk takers but u can see how many scamms happen there and although the postcount cant remove scammers in marketplace i think it makes it more safe and i personally prefer trading with a person who spent some time on ulake and bothered to post than with anyone creating accounts on ulake just to scamm people

How exactly is it stopping any scammers? We have risk takers now and there are still hackers, so I don't see how removing it would cause more scammers.

Still not decided on it yet, but I'm not sure about it causing more scammers...just don't see how.

voted no, i many scammer will come in, we are getting a quite large community and that means it will be easier for scammers to come in a scam imo.

03-30-2007, 10:33 AM
dont remove, its bringing scammers in, i think it should be reduced to 100....

The secret reason why people chose ulake: There is 80% less scamming than other sites.
How?: The post limit on markets.
Thats my theory...

The post count is high, and somewhat annoying. But I think that we'll live for that 200 posts we cant enter into the market.

No. Leave it as it is to prevent more scammers.

Dude, if you ask me - I say raise it and completely remove the risk takers section. This is a rs2 cheating community, not a scammer junky.

NO!!!, that is definetly one of the worst decisions that could be made at a time like this...

first, you can safely say, that scamming will not change, due to the already stated fact that post count is not the real reason you can safely trust someone in a trade...

Basically though, when a person see's a forum with the post count limit, they think to themselves.... hey, if i can get into that section, i can get better, safer trades... so what do they do??? they go and get enough posts..

lots of people come to this site, only for the black markets, and do not give a shit about the community... Basically i am leading to the fact that, the forum will be less active because people won't get the 200 posts to see a section, because they can just register, and get all the advantages offered to the people making posts... maybe when these people are trying to raise their post count for the section, they can also get hooked to the site, and stick with the community

we need an active forum, not a place where people can register, make one thread, get a trade, and never return

We can also hide the Black Market, its not really meant for fags who only come here to scam. Its meant for the loyal ulake Community.

Absolutely not post count is just kind of a fun thing to have shows how helpfull you are and that you've been here for a while so there is a less chance of the person to scam.

Yea and this would probably bing more users to ulake if you guys delete the post count limit. I agree DELETE THE POST COUNT LIMIT!

Shit I posted Yes. I thought it meant removing post count, so no ones post count went up. Soz

HelloGoodbye

I say Yes.

People keep saying no because it would bring more scammers ect...And i understand that because no one likes scammers. But theres me and and 5 other MM's who jobs are to not only MM, but keep scamming down. If we're all doing our jobs correctly, the only people who will get scammed are the people who don't follow our safety tips. Trashing the postcount would be alot better because ALOT of people selling stuff are looking to sell it and be done with it, not make it this long dragged out process of it. And another thing about scammers, the post restriction doesn't even effect scammers, if their looking to scam they will spend the time to get the post count and shit.

I say we keep the sections there are with the post count restrictions, but also make duplicates of them without restrictions. Get it?

But it is a lot harder for them to make it up to 250 posts or whatever they are needing without getting caught and banned again before getting to scam again. You see how bad sythe is, and the fact that the people are able to make another account and be back in the market board the same day of the ban doesn't help them at all.

I've already suggested that about the sub-forums for risk takers to have a much better filtered risk takers with different categories over it all in 1.

No this is a VERY VERY bad idea. Take it from someone who has been scammed many times :S If you remove the pst count ulake will beomce something like sythe, and i dont think any of us want another sythe!

04-05-2007, 11:08 AM
yeah i think leave it, i got scamed on sythe and decided to come to ulake. and since i been here nobody has even attepted to scam me and i would like it to stay this way

I say no because else it will just end up like sythe with a 1000 scammers to 1 good trader, keep the post count limit.

leave it, i just got 250 posts to get into 1337 unpatched glitches. we can live with it, id rather buy from someone who spent time on this site then a3 posting nub.

Nume
04-16-2007, 04:55 PM
Deffinetly not, it's what tries to stop the legit people from getting scammed and anyway there is always the risk takers section for everyone to post in without the post count.

04-16-2007, 05:08 PM
No, leave it as it is. It is the only factor that allows ulake to provide a (MOSTLY) scam free evironment.

Less chance?

How so...?

All the scammer would have to do is spam sections till 100 posts or w/e the post restriction limit is...

If you set it higher you'll just see more spam, lower you'll see more scams...

Either way someone loses.

No. I dont think we should, people depend on the post count to divide the scammers and the trusted.

yes postcount doesnt count for anything, scammers could just spam their way up to 200 posts.

I like it this way.
Pros: Less Scammers in theory.
Cons: None that I can think of, 'cept maybe spam to get the postcount?

stoopid
04-25-2007, 06:02 AM
I believe it should only be removed if we don't make the sub forums for the risk takers.

But, it's not like having no post count stops the sammers. In a way, it's the opposite. People that plan to scam is willing to spam their way up to 100-200 posts to do so. The problem with that is, someone will notice their post count and think they are even more trusted now since they took time to post when they were already just planning to scam and needed to just to enter the forum to begin with.
