Chain Messages


Seems like some people simply can't understand that chain-messages are unwanted. Don't send them! Grow up! This is not a site for stupid kids, we expect you to behave maturely (even if you're 10).

Note: A chain-message is something like this:
You have just been kissed! "Mwah!!" This is the start of Kiss War'04 Kiss Everyone that deserves a Kiss ! Now U must send this to: 0 people-U will have bad luck in love, 5 people- Your crush will like u, 10 people- You will go out wit your Crush, 20 people- U will make out wit your Crush, 35 people- You Will MarryYour Crush!

It should be quite obvious that these messages will only make people irritated, and if they are allowed to spread, your message-box will very quickly be filled with that crap.

And if you think that "I didn't start it!" is a good excuse, we'll show you how the banning works. It works pretty well.


Chain messages rules

Here are some simple rules that will help you see through a message.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 1) If it says that you should send something to some other people, it's a lie.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 2) If it says that something good will come out of it, it's a lie.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 3) If the letter clearly says that 1 and 2 does not apply to that letter, it's a lie.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 4) No, there are no exceptions.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 5) If there is one single letter that actually does break these rules, it's because you are fooled.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 6) The risk that someone that you send the chain message to will be irritated and start to dislike you is more than 90%.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 7) The risk that something bad will happen to you if you don't send copies of the message is 0%.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/book_blue_blob.png> 8) The risk that you get banned from Elfpack when refusing to stop sending them is 100%.


Gah, someone sent me a chain message!

The best response is to write a message back:

Chain messages are not wanted on Elfpack. See [Chain Messages@wiki] for more explanations. If you continue to send chain messages after receiving this warning, the [Guards@wiki] will ban you.

Then write a guard-report by pressing "send report to the guards" in the member's house. Please DON'T include the letter itself in the report, just the messagenumber will do.

2005-08-12 [Amalaswinta]: [over the edge]: even though I agree with you, everyone's entitled to their opinion. Just not through loads of messages to people you don't know..

2005-08-12 [over the edge]: [shygurl], I now badly want to flame you. Chain messages are all fake. It was some conincidence that you "had bad luck". But I don't really believe in luck. You have no say whatsoever in your parents divorcing, and it takes more than 3 months for people to stop loving eachother. I think you have some sort of denial issue that the chain message was somehow related to that. No one likes chain messages. If they were real, who would want to "die frum nt snding ths 2 so mny ppl"...? People send me messages on Yahoo about how they're deleting accounts, and if I don't send the message I will be deleted. I try to explain to them that accounts to be deleted will be contacted by Yahoo staff...

2005-08-12 [shygurl]: you dont always get false hope....well like i said if you dont like them, say so on your house.......not if you send ones that have viruses.....well i am not one of those ppl who voted against it......i voted for it......well that is why you only send them to ppl you do know......duh

2005-08-12 [over the edge]: and that it causes glitches when they send it... Sorry I had to delete that a bajillion times, I kept accidentally hitting the send button xD

2005-08-12 [over the edge]: duh? If we all sent chain messages to people we did know, then everyone would have multiple messages...

2005-08-12 [Amalaswinta]: xD

2005-08-12 [over the edge]: I'm done, now. Anyway, good job with everything, I'm going to use this Wiki when people send me chain messages. I'm off to sit in my corner and drink Arizona Green Tea.

2005-08-12 [Amalaswinta]: ^-^

2005-08-12 [¿thomas?]: you dont give false hope? so u dont when they promise u ull get uhm lett c money, luck, glamor, and money? so they dont give false hope? its basically trying to spread lies. if some one resends a chain msg and has a job and gets payd the next day the message didnt do anything to help there check.

2005-08-13 [shygurl]: no because what if they new ppl that the sender did not know......i dont do the money ones....i dont believe in the money they dont give false it is not spreading lies...:P.

2005-08-13 [MAX1M0 FAN7A571C0]: errr hi =)

2005-08-13 [¿thomas?]: Hi.... it is spreading hope, makeing that lack of will, ambition with love, and no work for self embetterment will still result in something if you send the message to another group of victims or should i say your friends list

2005-08-21 [2k7 michael loves kirsty2k7]: soz for it i thougtit was true

2005-08-27 [*~chicko~*]: sorry, i didn;t know.

2005-08-31 [kirst]: hey sorry i was just bored.

2005-08-31 [Shadow_Hands]: I juss did'nt want bad luck....

2005-09-08 [¿thomas?]: luck is sircumstancial to what dision you make at what time.

2005-10-27 [.x. Lil Lizzie .x.]: wow ok den i didnt no like
