Effective 5/2/09: University IP addresses will not be allowed unless the member can provide proof that they are indeed accessing from a university. This is due to abuse by not allowed countries who join using the university ISP as a proxy. Proxies are not nor have they ever been permitted at My-PTR. This includes sites like SoftLayer and SharkTech that provide proxy services. Any account with a log in from "VPLS" will be suspended as it is being used as a proxy. As they are found, the IPs will be permanently banned at My-PTR. Corporate IPs are also not allowed as these are typically proxies. Should a corporate IP be found to be a legitimate ISP service, the IP will be allowed. Corporate, university, web hosting (with no ISP services) and proxy IPs will be banned as they are discovered. My-PTR has a one and done rule when an account is caught using a proxy.
Effective 9/2/09: The embedded browser bsalsa is not allowed due to it's proven ability to turn a browser into a bot. If you are using bsalsa, please uninstall it or do not use it at My-PTR. Accounts found to be using bsalsa will be suspended and not paid if usage continues beyond this date. The browser has been blocked and shouldn't be able to be used anymore.
The browser "Microsoft URL Control" is a known browser that is only used by bots for spamming and other automated clicking purposes. Anyone caught using this browser will be suspended immediately.
There will be random English tests in the form of admin messages, e-mails and cheat links in paid to click or e-mail sections. Five (5) cheat links clicks are permitted. Accounts are suspended after the sixth (6th) cheat link click. If a cheat link is clicked accidentally, please contact me so that I can remove the click from your account. Please do not wait until you have several cheat links clicked...this offer is only for someone who clicks on a cheat link and realizes that it was a cheat link. Cheat links were reset during the summer of 2008 and will not be reset again.
Three failed English tests will result in account suspension. Account suspended for failing three English tests can be restored one time. Should the account holder fail a fourth test, the account will be permanently suspended and deleted on the first of the following month. No exceptions.
There is a cheat keyword upon signup. This is an English test and to prevent "blind clicking" of the keywords upon signup. Members with that keyword checked will be suspended. Suspended accounts can be restored one time upon request. The offending keyword must be unchecked within 7 days in order to avoid deletion.
Bot users are not tolerated. My-PTR uses a plugin that can determine if a user is accessing the site through a bot. All clicks must be made by the user and not with a program. IPs and accounts associated with this IPs will be blocked from the site. If a person is caught using a bot one time, their account will be deleted and any future accounts will be deleted. Persons caught using a bot are not allowed to rejoin.
The use of any software to refresh, check for changes or perform any other action is not permitted.
Any member who attempts to access the admin area of the site will be immediately suspended.
