# 1 Gold sellers
02-05-2010, 08:06 PM
I got my first gold seller private message today! I know I'm probably not the only one. happened while I was alone on a mission. Though it is really annoying... I don't want to buy "Gold" nor anything from these scam cakes. My ignore list is filling up and I wish I could fire a phaser into there computers. I have no doubt Cryptic is bringing down the thunder on them!

I know and do click the report spam everytime one of them comes up. My issue is I feel like they are ruining the feel of game. I don't want to see advertisements which are of course scams. This thread was to express of what I feel about these scam artists and I'm sure there are many who share the same.

I feel the same way.
Every game I have Quite playing was because of them and there B.S
WOW and FF just to name a few...

I have played EVE and there they dont have as meny or at least they don't play ;ong enough because CCP bands em real quick and because of the skill learning curve.

Cryptic had better slap em down or they ruin the game for those of us who want to play fairly and play STO the way it is ment to be played... or the will find players leaving in droves

From what I've heard the gold sellers may not stay long as the credit system here will not be in favor to them.

I have gotten 14 messages from them, even gotten some before ever posting on these forums.

I don't see how hard it would be for the system to detect 100 identical messages being sent and just deleting all of them.

Open Beta got hit, too.

For now, can Cryptic simply add a filter to anything with 'stogold' in the subject heading to be automatically deleted?

I remember the training chat in eve was full of gold spammers...

also, maybe the devs should allow us to make our selves private in social and mail.

I went to the STOgold site, found their contact addresses and signed them all up to different mailing lists. Have fun with your gay porn daily STOgold.
