H*ckin spams littering this forum
« on: November 30, 2017, 11:34:21 PM »
In the past few weeks there have been so many promotional spam topics. Idk if this is the first time, or we've been experiencing this before, but it's starting to bug me

Yeah there's always been periods with spambots. We often get a few reports a day, but many users are good to report them. The best you can do is to report posts to moderators, one post is enough per spambot account.

Is there a solution to this? I suggest putting a better, more updated captcha when signing up

Yes spam has become a big problem. I know as I help delete it. They are looking into fixing this problem, but it could take a while. For now just please ignore it.

Are you able to contact the admins at all? Surely it won't take another 8 months of BS for it to be fixed.

I know they are trying to find someone to upgrade the website which includes upgrading the forums. My hope is that it could be done in a month or two.
