I remember a mod posted a thread about posting gifs, memes, and spam. Was wondering if one of the mods could make announcment on the forums about it. I'm seeing more crap like this and it's not adding anything to the thread.

It was only a reminder.
It should be common sense that spam isn't allowed. Even if they return it, you'll still have people skipping pinned threads and continue spamming.

They should put it in bright red text on the main page

It really wouldn't help and would be an eyesore.

Then we can have a whole page on the main page dedicated to common sense stuff. Plus like A2 said, it would be an eyesore.

And even then people will just skip it.

That's the point, if you can see it then it's working.

No one cares about things like that.  Let the mods handle it with a warning, that's the best way.

That's not the point people should know not to post that crap anyways. It should be exactly like this with links in the words.

Exactly. And that's why mods don't have to babysit them with adding announcements and stuff.

You add the announcement to create awareness of the rules

The problem with those announcements is, they're not visible on the 2014 skin, and I'm sure 99% of GTAO forum users use it.

I was going to say that I didn't see the announcement

Just checked, and Vanto is right. Seems like an oversight on their part.
