The amount of spam on this forum :(( - Smultie - 14th Jan, 2016 06:32 PM

Subject says it all, I think!

There are a lot of spamtopics on this forum.
Actually, I've never encountered a forum with this many spam topics.

Can't we/you install a spam-blocking script or something on this forum?

Part of being a mod is handling the spammers unfortunately.

These aren't bots from my experience so a script wouldn't help.

true,you do not have privilege to open new threads as a new member. You need to make at least 5 replies to unlock full account.
This is one of the ways how to stop spamming appears on site.

Regarding those pop-up we are working on it,but those are just ads.
