    GamePlayFun is spamming up the 'news' too much. They are repeating everything they spam at least once a week. They even reposted an 'article' from 2 days ago. This is getting very annoying to keep seeing "Acekard 2i Cheapest free USB reader shipping lowest in usa!! hurry!!".

    oh also i think they are asking their customers to make a gbatemp account to write a 5-star review on them.

    **gameplayfun is not the only shop spamming up the news page

    I don't think it's all spam; there ARE coupons from reliable sites. I would like the option too. I doubt it'll happen though; they pay good money to advertize front page don't they? [​IMG]

    Yeah, I KNOW. [​IMG]

    Some other shop is also selling 'game all-in-one' cartridges.
    256 pirated games.

    "You can discuss how to find games, but you cannot link to direct sources"
    I think those cartridges would fall under 'direct sources', no?

    I'll e-mail to shoptemp to ask them shop it ASAP.Here's the new content of golden account in shoptemp as below:

    News content:
    In order to give everyone a chance to submit news and keep our home page clean, we are forced to put the following restrictions in place:

    - Our moderating team may disable articles that do not comply with the above restrictions.
    Thank you for your understanding!

    So post the spam news should be banned according to the new content

    yeah, not everything is spam and I appreciate the coupon codes and stuff, but you rarely see those because of all the spam.

    because with the free shipping code its the best deal unless you want to order from hong kong and wait a month.

    anyhow, i opened my bubble mailer package today (it only took 2 days to receive it after ordering it) and tried to see if my acekard 2i was real by entering the code and it passed. despite the shady website, fake reviews, and daily spam its a legit vendor. i think users are too critical of them. its not like these stores get new kinds of merchandise daily and are competing with each other.

    people generally don't bother writing good reviews because everything was as expected.
    though frankly if it wasn't for the free shipping i would've probably just ordered from RHS instead.

    Personally I think we need better moderating there. Shoptemp is just filled with spam at this point and really isn't trustworthy at this point.
