The following things have been directly mentioned by Glock as frowned upon or things that have been figured out to be problematic and have lead to point restrictions in the past or the Mendex patch Upvote parties Good morning/ good night posts Flooding the board Flooding the live feed Posting inappropriate content on the live feed (nude pics, drugs, etc) Posting inappropriate content in ?’s (drug related, asking about killing people, etc…) Having multiple accts on the same IP used for upvoting your self Downvoting just to get your answer to the top spot
What happens if a ? is flagged and removed: You loose no points if Glock removes a ? due to it being flagged. This includes the points for asking the ?, answering the ?, getting upvoted in the ?, upvoting in the ?, or replying to an answer in the ?... so other then the / going away there are NO negative effects on anyone
For those that do not know the Mendex patch was awarded by Glock for gaming the system.. The award is anywhere from -10,000 ot -40,000 points… And yes that is a negative points award as in they take points away from you.
