    Private Messaging!?!?!?!?!

    The member list, now the PM system? Why has the private messaging system been disabled?

    I enjoy participating in WCC, the awesome PBEM cricket league hosted here at CW. Trading is approaching, and private messaging is my main way of contacting managers to propose trades? Do you guys have any ideas as to when it will be restored?

    It was being abused by one or two people attempting to poach members for another site by using spamming techniques.

    The action is very much regrettable but under the circumstances unavoidable at the time.

    I was just wondering, if the criminals have been banned, how is it possible for them to access the PM system, hence why bother disabling it???

    Nibs, these decisions will be taken by senior Staff members such as James, Andre and Rich, and by them only.

    I imagine they didn't take the decision to stop them lightly, and will therefore not take the decision to bring them back any more lightly.

    One thing I will say though is that constant hassling and questioning will not make the decision be made any quicker.

    Unfortunately, each time the offenders are banned, a new account is registered with a differant email address doing the same thing.

    Sadly, for the moment, it is the only way of dealing with the problem, and as Marc states, it was not made lightly.

    Trust me - the private messaging system was used by me too - and I miss it as much as anyone, but someone always has to ruin it for everyone and you can very much thank the spammers for that

    It made difference to me, although it is a good why of communicating without other people knowing about it and it allowed me to take over AUckland for Liam when he went away.

    It won't be enabled again until I'm happy no more spamming will take place.

    Will PM ever come back to the site? Maybe a one week trial?
