Maybe add some temporary mods to the forums to ban those spam thread makers (the black magic specialist BS). Like some 2013 people or just people who seem trusted, I don't think they can do much harm if they happen to turn evil or something.

I don't think this is a good idea, mainly because there should be no such thing as "temporary" moderators. Just feel that this is a bad decision, if it were to go into play.

If they believe someone deserves to be a mod and have mod powers on the forums, they'd make them a mod.

If I was a mod I'd still spend 99.9% of my time on the forums rather than in game.

Isn't moderator (not super moderator) a rank in which someone is a moderator on the forums only?
Or am I just stupid?

I remember seeing someone with a rank '' moderator '', while their username is a normal name.

Why make them temporary? Spam is just going to occur more frequently as Growtopia grows.

They don't need moderating, they need to be prevented; prevention is better than cure. We had the same problem over at the King of Thieves forum, so a few days ago I PMd Hamumu a few ways in which we used to combat the spam-bots; I'm just waiting for him to read it. :p

I'm going to back this up.

The babaji spam came without warning to the forum, and caused pages upon pages of nonsense. Due to this - a thread limit was created, making it so new people could only post x threads in a day. This helped cut down the spam, but didn't remove it. The spam continues to show up daily, but it's quickly removed.

Babaji invades many other forums, not just ours. There seems to be no way of stopping such a thing, as those other forums haven't found a solution either. Due to this, the only way to combat it is to find and remove such a threat as quickly as possible. Making new users only being allowed to post x threads for their first day would also help cut down on the spam, making the infected sub-forum usable.

I have a concern the moderators and developers do not realise how much of a threat this bot is to the forum, and they need to work a way to stop it ASAP, as it will not go away for a long time.

As in temporary how long do you mean?

I think that this would be pretty useless... Unless you call this a "free trial" or something.

Why would you add a temporary moderator if you can just make them a full time forum moderator, or even in game?

If the devs believe that a person has the heart to be a temporary moderator (and not cause any trouble) then why not just make them full time?
