Really good thing to remember.. Don't post the actual scumbags website in the forums... that's basically giving them 'free advertisement."

The gold sellers are almost certainly using headstart accounts. Don't expect this to even slow down until headstart forgiveness ends.

Funny part is .... there is no gold in STO.

Just a thought ...

So here is what you do Cryptic:

Make it impossible for trial-accounts to send tells or mails.

Very simple, but VERY effective
to my knowledge.. there are not trial accounts at this time...

I also get a few of these every day but as long as Cryptic are aware of this im sure they will try their best to get rid of them. I have played Final Fantasy 11 pretty much from launch and there are still gill sellers on there, as it was when i played everquest, this kind of game its pretty much impossible to be completely rid of them.

What i dont get though, the people who use the service...i mean paying for a game, then paying for a subscription and then paying these creeps to play the game for you, whats the point? I always thought the point of a game was to play it and enjoy the rewards you earn!

I'm pretty sure everyone knows that, but the practice originated with gold selling in other games and the name stuck, just like everyone calls tissue paper Kleenex.

The report/ignore system is a factor of the Champions engine - thus, it is, and always has been, a part of STO. This is hardly an afterthought added in at the last moment. In fact, it's actually completely the opposite.

It would be preferable, though, if the report button could somehow be added to the forum mail system too. I can understand why this may be a very difficult thing to engineer, but it'd make life simpler all around in the long run.

for now... I went to my user CP and simply blocked all messages that do not originate from a friend or a moderator.

not a clean solution, but it's not like I'm Mr. Popular getting PM's and game mail. seems to be working.. my spam message a day wasn't there this morning and has remained clear all day.
