Hey guys,
Do you think we need to start some kind of selection criteria for joining the forum? These random advertising members are becoming more and more common...

agreed! I think a new membership format is needed.

+1 on the suggestion for a screening process. I hate seeing adbots all over the place. D:

I'm spamming by posting after myself, but after trying to wade through three pages of spam by one user, I just want to know if anything is going to be done about the bots? Dx I can't imagine how the mods feeling having to clean this up, even I'm frustrated by seeing it...

Actually cleaning up is easy - just deleting the whole account including tropics and posts made by that person. XD



Hypno is busy with his exams so I guess it'll still take some time until there will something be done about the bots :/ I'm trying my best to delete the bots asap when I spot them but i'm not in the position to change anything about the registration process. >_<

...When the morning begins
I'll be in the next chapter...

Technology can be so awesome, at least it's not a pain to do so. That bot was ridiculous. D: I've never seen such awful spam...
Thanks for explaining that though, I hope he gets done with exams soon. They're on a rampage lately.
