Third-Party Message Board Restrictions

Third-Party Message Board Restrictions

Message board posts must contain four or fewer links to live charts. Message boards that violate this policy repeatedly will be blocked.

Reasons for the policy:

  • New posts on popular message boards can generate huge, spiky loads on our servers.
  • When faced with a “wall of charts” many people just scroll past them - but our servers still have to draw them, thus much of the load on our servers is unnecessary.
  • By breaking up the “wall of charts” into groups of 4, the load on our servers is much less spiky and spread around more evenly.
