TheEngiGuy, send Janne a PM that you like to be a moderator. Hopefully Janne see your PM when he next log into the forum. Been over 2 weeks since Janne last logged into the forum.

Oi! I get on here and delete spam as soon as I get a notification mail about spam being reported. And I read mail the second I get it. But I agree, the amount of spam sometimes is just unreal. And since posts have to be deleted one by one, it's a pain to get rid of them once the damage is done.

The reason I barely show up in the bans list is that usually you're here a tiny bit quicker than me, so all I can do is help delete stuff :P

Maybe the problem is they very rarely they get reported. Usually i drop by maybe once or twice a day and then see the forum full of spam,but never get email reports.

well, the report function is bugged af, when you report a post the page times out, even of the report is sent.
If only they would fix their forum (better security, working report tool)..

Purple, did you send the PM? It looks like I didn't receive it but no harm done since I just read the thread.

We'd love to improve the forum security but it's something that's not a high priority for now as you can understand, but we'll take a look at whether there's something (a plugin, perhaps?) that we could easily add to reduce the amount of spammers. It's true that there are quite a few around, no denying that.

Hi Janne, I suggested TheEngiGuy send you a PM asking to be a mod.

I'm a mod now, thanks! I'll make sure to keep this forum clean until more security features will be implemented.
