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.
