    Yes, of course, sorry about that.

    I was out of the studio for the night and hadn't noticed. We're having a spam bot issue nowadays but it's being looked into.

    Sorry again.

    We need to promote some people to moderator status. :smile:
  • Going to be a long Monday morning for you @Shatojon :blush: :neutral:

    Hey guys, sorry for the spam over the weekend (wasn't in the studio).

    We'll look into voluntary moderators and we're working on a permanent solution for spam bots.
  • Mebbe prevent an account from posting more than 5 discussions every hour? B/c 5 discussions started in a hour should be enough for most.

    Not a bad idea, Glorval. But first we'd rather find a solution that doesn't limit genuine users. We're going to try to find a solution that gets rid of them without affecting real users.

    The issue we're having is that it's not actually a bot. It seems to be one (or a group) of individuals manually creating accounts and spamming the forums with them. That's much tougher to combat.
