A lot of people are around here, that doesn't make MQL5.com or Metaquotes responsible for their actions.

Thank you for your answer even I can not see a related question. I did not accuse mql5 to be responsible, I just asked for help ... and tataa: Sergey appeared. So I said: Oh thank you Sergey, I see you have done something, I see you did understand my question, the funny group is gone. :-)

I think - it is Russian forum users complained before you opend this thread, and the admins explained on the forum that it is the spam if the channel owner subscribed the user for the second time (after the user unsubscribed from his channel).

Today, I've received 3 such messages that had added me as a subscriber to their signal group.

I clicked the unsubscribe button at the top of the message and they are gone.

It was annoying, but not the end of the world.

It should be rules for that:

  • what channel owners can do;
  • what channel owners can not do;
  • and what can be considered as a spam in this new feature.

By the way, as I remember - google used similar feature to promote their google+ (they named it as a cycles, and everybody can include any user to any cycle, and any user can unsubscribe to it with not a problem at all). So, this new feature is practically proven (for "commercial people" to promote something).
But we need the rules for that and a little more explanation about "what for" for example.
Because not everybody understands about why do we (or they) need it sorry.

And it should be a choice. For example, if I go to "My Profile - Settings" so I should see the following question for me:

"Do you allow to be subscribed to the channel?"

  • Yes
  • Not

If "Not" so I do not care about the channels anymore.
If "Yes" so I want to see the rules of the channels (because my "Yes" = rules).

---------------- 

I hope that the MetaQuotes will make an announcement related to this new messaging features.
Because there are all chats, private chats, group chats and channels (we can check in on Metatrader's private messaging system for example).

That's a useful suggestion Sergey, I hope they listen.
