No of course not.

We are not out to trip people up with rules.

Spam is people doing BAD stuff, if you are doing sensible not BAD things, then you won't have a problem with us.

Thanks for the reply there Admin, sorry to Hi Jack this thread, but it was under one of the questions I was going to ask, and hoped it was all right, placing it here.


IS a certain amount of Emails Considered SPAM?

The reason I ask this question, is because I had to send out numerous people, telling them to change their passwords, like 5 times, has they never showed up, to fix their passwords, and I was afraid that bots would use their accounts, not on this forum, has I haven't got a MyFF yet?


Thanks in advance,



Warren

Again think reasonable good bahavior, if you have a valid reason for doing it you are very unlikely to get in trouble.

If you think mass emailing drivel to your members every other day is a good idea, then they are sure to be complaining here and you will be in trouble!

A responsible forum admin will not have a problem here. We have no arbitrary limits merely common sense. Disputes are generally played out in the open in the T&C forum here, so that all can see whether we are playing fair.

Thanks for the reply there, the reason I asked that was because with my forum (IPBFREE not here), I emailed them about too change the password, due to it being transferred to a new forum, and all passwords were reset, one member was angry about it.

How do I go about this, because I was only trying to help her out, and make sure she changed her password out?


Did I do something wrong or was I in the right?

I'd guess probably yes as it sounds like you are thinking about what you are doing. But I don't know all the circumstances.

Hi

I have 2 forums. The first has 100 members and is active. The second has just started and has only 5 members. Would it be ok for me to send an email on my active forum saying,

Hello

I now have a new forum operating, come and check us out ........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

(Info about the new forum here)


Is that classed as spam or not?
