Update to the rules on using 'invisible text'

Hey all! :wave:

As you may know, we recently disabled invisible text from being used on our forums, as it was being exploited by a few individuals to bypass minimum character requirements, and to hide abusive messages.

We have now re-allowed the use of the formatting code that can be used to create invisible text but its usage is now subject to the following rule:

Posts that break this rule will be deleted by our staff team, and warnings/suspensions may be handed out if the rule is broken repeatedly.

I’d like to clarify that there is an exception to this rule, within the forum games category, where posts are naturally short (counting games, etc.) This rule also does not apply in private, direct messages or groups.

We have also reduced the minimum character requirement to 10 characters.

Thank you for your patience whilst we made these changes. As always, if you have any questions about any of these changes, don’t hesitate to contact me, and I will do my best to clarify any queries :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
