    Just add it in the fine printed "agreement" when you create your account, you know together with all the other stuff that everyone read! ;)

    Well, most people read it the first time ever, then just forget about it for the other 1000s of times

    I think thread should be deleted. Since beggars are potential customers/buyers, locking their account will not help OPO as a company.

    I think its fair to warn once (and maybe twice) .. to be honest, most ppl on here start very very focused on getting an invite ... it can take a while to realize how much other info is on here

    i also think that many of these threads arise because not everyoine has English as their first lanquage ... i am sire if i was on a board that was not in english i would be a little lost and it would probably take me some time to figure out right n wrong

    are the forum rules and how tos in languages other than English ... i know that there are sections with other languages but i dont speak any of them :(

    Warn once, but if it happens again - just do nothing at first. Once that user does get an invite, advise that they had one, but it was given out to compliant forum members :D

    May i ask what exactly constitutes begging? The arrogance and hypocrisy of this thread is absolutely shocking. now that many people have their invites and their phones on the way they are suddenly annoyed by people asking to share invites around? what's wrong with that? what is the main reason for the forum called "INVITES"? seriously. get a grip. Some of you people don't deserve to have a OPO.
    Anger.

    First time - immediately lock thread.
    Second time - Lock account (they'll create another if it is important to them)

    I see many begging threads opened by users with zero post
    There should be some kind of restriction for new users for opening new threads

    • There is always a reason why they lock thread, and they explain it without vexing.

    great idea , but too low number , as its only extra 2 - 3 days of waiting , it should be 1 week extra , so increase the number with 20k

    just kidding , it should only be locked thread , they should punish only if the same person begs like 3 times for an invite in various ways

    Temporarily muting then would be effective because it'll stop them from begging continuously on other threads

    i think the punishment is that they wont get any invites from people in the forum...
    cause who wants to give an invite to a beggar?

    is this still relevant? Because I think it is.
    There should be a new rule:
    when an account begs 10 times it will be banned for a couple of hours.
    What do you guys think?

    Did you never give money to a beggar on the streets because you feel sorry for them ?
