    I just wanted to point out that we are getting some pretty inappropriate spam bots right now. Since there are kids on this site, is there something more we can do?!!

    Spam bots are active only in the every early morning, like between 9am-11am so I'm trying to enter the site in these exact times to report them but the people who have authority to ban the spam bots are not always active the times I mentioned. Even if they were, that wouldn't be a permanent solution.

    Is there any system to approve the memberships manually, like in Facebook? It seems that spam bots' names don't have any capital letters and don't have any space like 'lyndoshiranui'. Most of them even have numbers in their names 'lyndo9545'. If you can confirm the membership requests manually seeing the person's member informations like their forum names etc.you can understand if it is a spam bot or not. I have no idea how the system works in forums so this might seem a silly suggestion.

    Am I the only one who sees this as a sort of game now? "Ooh, a spam post! Only 11 minutes ago, maybe I'm the first one!... Nope, someone got there before me, darn." :giggle

    Well... we're merging the spam report posts in the mod forum into one thread. So looking at the "Who's Replied?" we kind of could.
    • Nymala Ingasy @ ~80*
    • Elin al'Nia @ 17
    • Rhed al'Tere @ 13
    • Alyra Savoinya @ 6
    • Mejjad Martnandi @ 5
    • Leala al'Dareis and Polegnyn Nemeara @ 4
    • Enya Tawarwaith, Elia LePhant, and Alenya al'Roran @ 2
    • Jeryn Lekar, Sera Volare, Devonna Harren, Ignis al'Caleum, Lyndo Shiranui, and Trystyne Telyan @ 1
    The list does not include recently reported posts, only merged ones.

    *Nymala has 85 posts in the thread, but I'm not sorting through which ones are her reports and which ones are her funny responses. She goes at the top of the list, though, as most of them are indeed reports.

    And I'm glad my responses are funny to you guys. I purposely look for the perfect gif before I log in just to vent my frustrations at the annoying *()@#$'ers
