For the past 2 days there have been so many spam ads, And I know I had a rant about it yesterday, but seriously more and more are appearing. They seem to be by koreans, as a large majority of these albums (or ads) are in korean writing.

Why haven't these alts been banned already?

Its become a problem as we can't see good threads, and one of them, gct77, is using pornography to advertise. This Should not be accepted

Gct has been going since yesterday. Plus, these photos are inappropriate. But there when theres trouble, there never seems like theres anyone to stop it. This forum needs more active mods, 3-5 people can't do enough

I think they should recruit some Forums moderators, not in-game mods, but people to watch over the forums. ;-; because this is getting ridiculous.

Yes, but they really should find a way! because kids play this game, and view the forums, and we want this to be a friendly page. Not something full of pornography adds, and Spams.

If we can't ban all of them, they should at least design a filter that only allows you to post 1 album per day, and with only a limited amount of photos. This is getting ridiculous

Mmm, that would start a forum war, but they should put a limit on it, or as we have discussed, recruit some moderators for the forums.

Im still wondering, how did these people discover forums, and how did they know how to use it, thus thinking that advertising casinos and something about massages using pornography?

Spam bots are just a small annoyance really, the auto spam filter blocks the majority, some managed to have slipped through the net but moderators usually do a good job at getting rid of them. And as a regular vBulletin board feature, there is an option to report these spam bots to certain spam blocking networks so it goes on their database to improve the block filter. So when a mod fills in such a report, it helps both this forum and other forums with that software, and vice versa.

Being a forum moderator for Growtopia is a part of an actual game moderator's job. You can't have one without the other, it's how it works.
I'd probably refuse such a position unless I became a full moderator (no not for a powergrab despite what it sounds like) and in that case I'd probably refuse being a moderator full stop. I have no intrest in this point in time in becoming a moderator. Yes I said this in December and before that even but real life comes first (other mods will agree with me on that one) and I'm not currently in a position to take such a responsibility on if I was asked to do so again. Just being realistic here.

Yes. I miss flying around and banning bad guys, yes I miss being an official guardian of this community, yes I miss being able to make someone's day just by my presence without somehow for whatever reason not lacking the energy to still be happy myself. Yes I miss the comradery and down to Earth attitude of the moderator team. But realistically. I'm much better off without the stress of the job at the moment.
