    So recently I've seen a few people putting their covers/Soundcloud posts up to 4-5 times a day in chat (the same cover/post.) I was wondering if it's a form of spam. Spam is not tolerated on the forum so I was wondering if this was against the rules.
    • SPAM is not tolerated.
      This includes everything from multi-threading, triple-posting, reckless self-promotion, and PM floods. Don't make a mess that the staff will have to clean. It is not the way to get on their good side and hurts you more than it could ever possibly help.
    I personally am not a fan of people posting their covers/posts more than twice a day in chat. I find a better method is to include it in a status message.

    I was wondering if @Hentai could shed some light on this, is this allowed?

    Imo I don't find it annoying as long as they aren't posting their cover multiple times within the same hour.

    I find it be be extremely annoying. Especially when you're mid conversation with a group, then someone out of nowhere falls from the sky and slaps you in the face with their cover, clearly interrupting the conversations.

    This is more appropriate for the Support and Feedback board.

    I must apologize as I am one of those people. Though as @Milk said, I found it fine as long it wasn't done multiple times in a row and have hours of spacing between each SoundCloud post.

    But since this is brought up, perhaps we could take this chance to revise the spam rules concerning the Chatbox on the extent of what's considered as "reckless self-promotion" since others seem to have different standards of how much posts at a certain amount of time is considered as spam. ("posts" include YouTube posts as well since those take up more space than SoundCloud posts.)

    I would have put it there, but I wasn't sure. I wanted this thread to be a conversation about the issue so I put it in chit-chat

    I do agree with @kimchi-tan I feel like the spam rules should be looked over and revised if this is a form of spam. I'm looking for @Hentai to shed some light on the situation to see if this is a form of spamming or not. If so the rules should be looked over and updated to include this. If not then that's fine.

    If it's discussion about the issue, then it is indeed appropriate for the Support and Feedback board (there's a prefix tag called "Open Discussion" after all!) and other staff will be more likely to see this and give their opinion and help sort it out.
