NOT a game related post here, but is there any way you guys can put a better spam filter in to block out the spam bots? They really clutter up the place icon_mad.gif

  • I don't know if it helps get them removed any quicker but I always mark them as spam (from the little red exclamation point in the white triangle) from the post screen. They are annoying but seem to disappear quickly.

    We're banning them as quickly as we see them and updating filters as we can, but we don't have 24/7 forum support. It's more workload on us too, prefer not to see them around.

    Would you guys be open to making player moderators in the future, if certain reputable players are willing to volunteer for it?

    It's always a possibility in the future.
  • How about using a better captcha? The one that is currently in the registration isn't that easy for humans but is obviously trivial for computers. Not a good combination.
