5 What is the difference between an Anonymous guest account vs a normal account?
unrated

Normal accounts votes count more than an anonymous user. Over time, anonymous user votes also start to count less than a normal account. With a normal account, you can also gather points and score.

8 What prevents spammers from just spamming news links or spamming in general?
unrated
4/29/2016
Currently, the site is pretty open for users (Anonymous or not) to submit in articles but they are all moderated to an extent and safety nets are in place if spam is detected. If there happens to be more spam than normal, restriction on submissions will be applied. Plus, BLUECHAT uses "nofollow" links so there isn't any reason for spammers to abuse the site.

unrated

Post it on any of the Live Chats, submit it in as a question, even ask it here. All areas are moderated to an extent and if everything works, the question should percolate upward to an admin or moderator.

15 Why does BLUECHAT require a phone number to get an account?
unrated
4/29/2016
We use the phone number as the main identifier because that way, there is no more need to remember your password. We've found based on past experiences that 99% of all the issues regarding user logins were related to forgotten usernames and forgotten passwords. With a phone number, anytime you forget your password, you can simply login by using SMS verification.
