Since the chosen approach to handling spam here appears to be reactive rather than proactive, I think we need another admin to help clean it out.

I nominate $lave.

Is this related to the "What admin" quote of his?

Either way, I'm fine with it. Just means the production of LAVEWARS will get delayed some.

I'm all for $lave being an admin! What does he think of this idea though?


Off topic:

@ ack45: As a matter of fact, I do happen to care about Lh'owon's opinion. The comment you are quoting has nothing to do with you and I don't see why you feel the need to get involved.
If you would like to help the MaraPiD project, send me a personal message.

Yeah, I'm fine with it. I doubt I'd do much (if anything) more than deleting spam, which I think was the idea. It doesn't seem like a terribly exhausting task, and I'm around here enough anyway.

I may start banning people for no reason and forcing people to host my maps all the time, but that probably won't happen for at least a week.

Can I be your bitch? I already host your maps a fair amount.

I'm saddened by this, though. I PMed appleswitch over two weeks ago offering to help remove the junk but haven't received a response.

Sorry, thought I response to that. No.

Well, I guess it's more probably not. Seems like a good idea, I need to check out the available permissions settings. Unfortunately, the best methods of removing spam ( with email and ip bans if they fit a pattern, mass deletion of users posts/topiucs ) require strong admin powers.

Slave: You wait and see Treellamma, I will be mayor. I'll be the most powerful man on the pfhorums, and I\'m Going to Clean up this community.
Treellamma: Oh yeah? Good, you can start with the spam.

I had figured I'm here often enough, and that I could delete spam as easily as report it; but I understand your concerns.

If you find some acceptable compromise let me know.

The best method is to require email registration.

But, what's wrong with the strong admin powers methods? I trust $lave, at least for the first week.

Spam can be kept out if you make a subforum called "activate posting", which is the only forum new members can post in. A moderator/admin will give members who make an introduction post there the power to post in the other forums.

Pros:
no spam in other parts of the pfhorums
spam can be deleted once a month since it will only be present in the activate posting thread
a human mind will determine who is worthy to post
members who register just to read will not be effected

Cons:
An admin/mod must edit members settings to give them the right permissions. Personally I don't think it will be a burden judging on how few posting members the pfhorums get.
