Chain messages are against the Elftown Rules, and starting them or even simply forwarding them can get you banned. 'I didn't start it' is not an excuse!

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 Marry Your Crush!

It should be quite obvious that these messages will only make most people irritated, and if lots of people send them we all end up with inboxes full of unwanted spam.


Chain messages rules

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

1) If it says that you should send something to a bunch of other people, it's a lie.

2) If it says that something good will magically come out of it, it's a lie.

3) If the message clearly says that 1 and 2 don't apply to that message, it's a lie.

4) There are no exceptions.

Chain messages facts and figures

1) The risk that someone that you send the chain message to will be irritated and start to dislike you is more than 90%.

2) The risk that something bad will happen to you if you don't send copies of the message is 0.

3) The risk that you get banned from Elftown 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 Elftown. See [chain messages@wiki] for more explanations. If you continue to send chain messages after receiving this warning, the guards will ban you.

Then write a guard-report by pressing <img:knapp/sendreportoguards1.gif> in the member's house and write something like "I warned this member about sending chain messages." Please do not copy the entire text of the message into your report, just the message number.

2005-02-01 [Sunrose]: What about the irony that the chain message is for instance supposed to get you love, but instead you get a message from a guard? ;-)

2005-02-01 [~Arus~]: nice.

2005-02-01 [Kelaria]: lol! that's great! *cackles evilly and then realizes that she isnt the evil one* meep... :P

2005-02-01 [~Arus~]: ...huh?

2005-02-01 [Kelaria]: lol... I'm just a strange person....... heh....

2005-02-01 [~Arus~]: oh, okay.

2005-02-02 [pimpin_da_boys*]: ok

2005-02-03 [Chaotix Palidien]: they jus suck and i have a posting in my house ill ban u from my house aka block if u send one no warning =/ sorry i do not like them cuz they take up usefull space in my eyes **casts omni eraseing every chain messege from time itself**no if only that spell was real =/:D

2005-02-03 [~Arus~]: agreed.

2005-02-03 [Noexistantanymo]: "And if you think that "I didn't start it!" is a good excuse" Hehe, obviously it isn't, but how about "I never sent a chainmessage"? Like it should be xD All hail the fighters against Chains.. ^^

2005-02-04 [ish]: i wll fight chains ...

2005-02-04 [kyloo]: anyone from pontefract

2005-02-05 [Thunderstatic]: anyone like to hang

2005-02-05 [Sunrose]: This is not a chatwiki :)

2005-02-05 [extreme dookie ^_^]: oh nevermind

2005-02-05 [fuk off elf town i hate yooh!]: i hate chain messages

2005-02-05 [freak in a cage]: i think even a 10 year old would have more thaan enough sense to not start chain letters

2005-02-06 [LoL, mate]: yeah, my brother, who's 10, wouldn't even do that. People who do them either have an IQ inferior to 0, or are very stupid and have way too much time on their hands. End of discussion: People who send, and start chain letters are stupid. How could anyone believe that because you don't send a f*cking message you'll have a bad love life? Please, people!

2005-02-06 [Ocean Dreaming]: Because people are gullible. It's their nature to believe before thinking.

2005-02-06 [raven1777]: and.... what **exactly** is the POINT of sending chains, other than buggin the crap out of everyone.....?

2005-02-07 [Hedda]: The point is to bug the crap out of everyone of course. Humans tend to do such things to test that the society works and spanks them correctly.
