Stop Spammers!
« on: December 04, 2006, 12:48:12 AM »
A lot of times, some crazy new players who've never heard of Legends, join the board just to post spam!  Does anyone know how to stop this?

They're all robots--they won't be reacting in the slightest to topics like these, I'm afraid. The only real solution is to initiate a sort of "special code" entry, with all the distorted characters, that they use on a number of other forums. Whether this option is available or not, I'm not positive.

I've been trying my hardest to delete the spam as soon as I see it.

I hate how our spambots have to post porn links. Why couldn't they just post random crap (even though no spam is the best, lmao)

I'm doing everything in my power to stop it guys. If you haven't noticed, it is not as rampant as it once was. I'm trying as hard as I can to abolish it.
Crazy, but that's how it goes.

I know, that's pretty much the only non-Jester's Court spam I've ever seen.  Make a six-month-or-more member like Olmec or tss1011 a Temple Guard, maybe? More people to delete the spam crap sooner.
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Favorite episode: The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus
Favorite season: Season 2, very closely followed by Season 3
Favorite team: Blue Barracudas

Not a bad idea. We do need more mod staff, I'll discuss with the current mods who they think should be added to the staff.

Just a question concerning spambots.  Do you take them out of the Temple after they spam the first time? Most of them I haven't seen them posting more than once.

Post #250.

Originally, that was how we dealt with spam bots, but after we realized that they would only post once, we just began deleting their threads and thus, problem solved.

I think the mods are doing a fantastic job.  Keep up the good work.
