    Hey guys, it's been like centuries since I've been asking for this, but I've probably been doing it the wrong way. The spambots are becoming really annoying, and it's just as annoying having to go through all the hoops to report them:

    - Click on bots profile
    - Report user
    - Choose category, where SPAM isn't even listed as an option
    - Explain that it's for SPAM

    How about just adding a "Report SPAM" button next to the posts? It shouldn't be too complicated and it would be a lot easier to help the mods and keep the site clean!

    How about a probation period on new accounts like everyone has said for the last 10 years?

    Yeah, if you've registered in the last 2 months you're not allowed to post links...

    Anyway Vlad, when faced with a spammer you should find the "Ban this spammer" thread here on the forum...Mods are usually quick to respond, and it's quite cathartic...

    I don't even know who the "report user" messages go to. Certainly not any of the user mods.

    @AcidSnake

    Uuuh, I didn't know about that!! I don't stroll though the forums too much, guess I should start doing it!

    Also, the probation period idea ain't bad. I just hope EG finds SOME solution...

    Report user goes to a section of our CMS. There are some great ones in there. :)

    We realise that spam is a pain in the arse. The tech team are working on ways to combat it but they're stretched at the moment with a number of different projects.

    Uhm... That's encouraging! hahaha So is it just there for show? :D

    EDIT: @Venatio

    Oh, ok that's cleared up then :) Hmmm... It would be great reading some of that stuff :D :D How about creating a topic with some of the funny ones? (Getting rid of the spam has priority though ;) )

    You know the solution, right?
    Just like in the old westerns...You need to deputise an army of new mods!...

    And don't take the time to check who you're promoting, just the first people you find on a thread...What could possibly go wrong?...

    I just banned somebody that Vlad reported. The system works!

    And, Dirtbox, you're slacking, you've only been reported seven times since April 2007.

    "What could possibly go wrong?"

    Well, 2012 is just around the corner... :) Seriously though, more mods could also be a good idea. Anything, as long as things get better.

    LOL. Oh, he/she means well. Just lacks a bit in understanding/accepting irony sometimes.
