Default [Suggestion] How to avoid bots.

Lately there's been bots posting in the League of Legends forum and they always link to bit.ly.

Could ggftw restrict posts so that people can't post anything linking to bit.ly anymore?

It's literally just a URL shortener, there are tons of other options for bots to choose. Also please note that many of our users would also be affected. Please trust that we're brainstorming on a method to handle this issue.

No links til 5 posts? That's probably more than any of the bots ever reach. And probably more work than they're willing to put in to put 1 referral link. Maybe.

I don't know how big a deal it is for new users to post links though, but 5 isn't that hard to reach.

Give me mod of LoL boards and you'll never see another ad bot report again.

Probably don't even need it at 5, most likely just 3 to post link. That's essentially just two more posts of replying to people's introductions on this forum.
