Post by Blaxlandridge3 »

I've been noticing a lot of Spam Advertisement topics being posted around here lately. What's up with that?

We get a lot all the time, sometimes we're simply in the wrong timezone so they aren't cleared out fast enough. All the moderators help keep the forums clean voluntarily. :)

It's sadly a normal thing, but believe me when I say you haven't seen anything yet :P

I've logged in at times and there's been about 30-40 topics all over the place!
All I can say is thank goodness for 'enhanced' mod powers :mrgreen:

(Although I nearly did ban myself once...)

I tend to be awake when it happens, because who needs sleep when you do nothing in the day anyway?
I've sometimes visited the site at like 4am and i've been like Edward Scissorhands just with reporthands. Sometimes they try to be clever and bury their link deep within an otherwise seemingly legit post too, which is quite ingenius. Thankfully we always see through it and it gets removed as soon as the mod brigade turn up.
