    Spammers must Die

    Spamming is becomeing a real nuisance lately.

    I think all the veteran members should have the ability to put accounts on hold for members that have <10 post, when we feel they are spamming. Then the mods/admins can either delete or enable the account after they have reviewed the accounts there were put on hold. Alot of the spam thread pop up when most of the mods are not visiting the forums.

    These spam thread are comming up more often. The other night this guys posted like 10 spam thread. Someone could have stopped him after the first one, instead of him polluting the forums with garbage.

    i agree. obviously not me, but there should be a group of selected people who can freeze posting of members with less than 10 or 20 posts.

    Maybe add some dedicated members but not all. Too hard to police.

    maybe we need a wider range of mods on.


    As I see it all the MODS are US which means they are times when it is likely there are no MODS on.

    If there was some European or Aussie mods as well then there would be more time zones covered.


    just a thought.

    I'll volunteer as well. If you look at a lot of the spam in OT, I've been one of the first, if not the first poster. That's because I often work 3rd shift, just waiting for something to break. I spend a lot of time on these forums.

    I volunteer as well.
    Whenever I see a spammer, I report it to xBrady through MSN messenger. He's the only mod/admin that I have on MSN (since Frodo has gone MIA, anyway), and I'm certain that I must annoy the **** out of him, because I'm IMing him 2 or 3 times a week because there's a spammer.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    yeah, you guys like my idea.
    I thought I was going to be told to shut up like all my other ideas.

    so when does this get implemented?
    Zip-Lock? gnomad?
