    Spambots and lack of mods

    Honestly all these spambot threads are becoming annoying as well as the lack of moderation. This forum is slowly but surely becoming distasteful.

    Yep, there have been several threads discussing this and no word from Hi-Rez on any potential fixes or even acknowledgement that there is a problem.

    Once the forums are official I'm sure Drybear will ride in on his golden steed and rain justice down on these forums. Until then we get to wallow in squalor and ignorance.

    I'm more than willing to give them a hand, if they will allow it. Don't mind my low post count though.

    It's something they could solve with a few simple changes to the forums, they really don't need people moderating and getting rid of spambot posts (although that would be nice for now).

    Yeah I know that, I'm just putting it out there in case they do have the need for new people. The spam bots can be dealt with remotely, but thanks to that not being in place yet it makes it pretty apparent that the moderating team needs some help too.

    Judging from the lack of interest in the forums so far, outside of those directly involved with Hi-Rez I don't think they're going to start giving people moderation privileges.

    Like I said until Drybear turns his shining radiance towards the forum and the blinding light from his forehead cleanses us of our sins we're pretty much screwed.

    Hopefully they do something about it. I'm sure HiRez will do something about it soon though.

    These spam post are becoming more frequent, i know these forums aren't official yet, but the longer this sort of thing is left unchecked the more work you will have to do later.

    I really hope HiRez takes care of this issue soon. It's getting really out of hand.

    Well, Drybear has already given xFats mod privileges and who has done precisely nothing with it. Sooo, I'm not sure this 'shining radiance' will help much either.
