Personally, my idiocy is responsible for the guild announcement cap.
Back during the S.I.N. versus B.O.O. event, I started a guild.
''Benevolent Order of the Overseer''
Someone else made sentinel's infernal nation.
And they both went viral, and people started flooding to join the guild related to the side they had joined.
At one point, there were over eleven thousand members in boo guild.
And as its leader, I was getting bombarded with PMs, from members who actually... thought booguild was a legit thing, like actually part of the event.
We had them up before the event started, we knew the team names, and just set up the guild as a sort of staging/planning thing, and as an area for team members to discuss why they were choosing which side they were on, what they thought the event was going to be like, and etcetera.
Needless to say, it got out of control pretty fast, haha.
The members thought I was actually like, leading team boo.
So I started sending out guild announcements.
Tons of guild announcements.
Like ten a day or so. Announcing event statistics, highlighting members, linking to youtube videos, etcetera.
Now I want you to think of something here.
five to ten announcements a day to about ten thousand people?
That's like an average of like eighty thousand messages a day!
There were people complaining about my announcement spam, and I honestly was laughing through all of it. The peak was when there was a site feedback thread up with a bunch of people clamoring to get me banned. That was pretty hilarious.
So then someone else suggested ''Why not limit how many messages can be sent a day?''
And that's the story of why you can only send one guild announcement per day.
So has anyone else here done anything crazy like that?
I was proud when I finally passed all my close friends in account worth, then proceeded to leave them in the dust. We had a bit of a race to 1 million gold back in the day, which I actually lost at the time.
