 +====== Third-Party Message Board Restrictions ======
 +Message board posts must contain four or fewer links to live charts. ​ Message boards that violate this policy repeatedly will be blocked.
 +Reasons for the policy:
 +  * New posts on popular message boards can generate huge, spikey loads on our servers.
 +  * When faced with a "wall of charts"​ many people just scroll past them - but our servers still have to draw them, thus much of the load on our servers is unnecessary.
 +  * By breaking up the "wall of charts"​ into groups of 4, the load on our servers is much less spikey and spread around more evenly. ​
