Hey admin, all I see now people just spam to gain credit (on graphic leaks). I mean that's not even a leak that thing was free on the real site. It's make the good ones or the leak that very hard to find going to rock bottom! idk that just my thought, some people really need the real leaks. thank you.

I've never understood why peoples doing that, if you need some kind of advertisement there's lot of better and free ways, also if you need some attention you can get it but without just doing blablabla.

Τhe spamming is a known issue.
I have made some attempts and suggestions for dealing with the problem,but since all the focus was given to the creation of the new version of the site,none made it through.
To be fair,it's a tough issue to deal with and no option has zero downsides.
We may only hope it will be dealt with in the future.

Now,as far as the uploading of free resources,it's a loophole that leechers can use to gain more credit,since a thread gives 2 credits,instead of 1 that a post gives, and there is less of a risk to get banned.
Post garbage and spamming can be banned without hesitation,but mundane,low quality ones usually aren't the cause of a ban,hence why a lot of them get away with it.
Post bumping is ok,it's made for people that actually advertise something to keep their thread up in the catalogue.

I would recommend to use the search bar if you are looking for something specific here;going through all the threads can be a bit of a hussle.

I think the 15-post limit is quite an annoying feature to block new users from getting access. Why not make new users do a few extra captchas instead? The posts are just going to spend extra space on the server and clog up the forum.

It's a strategy tho :D
Since you have to "spam" like 15 posts, you also have to check some threads on this forum so it's a win-win situation.

I agree with you, this way much better because new users can be tired of trying get 15 posts and ofc the space issue.
