Alright, this is getting way out of hand. That new forum idea was perhaps the worst idea in a while. Why do you need to give people an EXCUSE to spam?

We need a new forum mod, we really do. Kuma is never around, Fooz isn't around that much either. And Solo locks stuff, and sometimes deletes it. But there is just too much that get's through. Now, I have no idea who should be a new forum MOD, but whoever it is, he or she had better do something about all of the spam around here, because this is just terrible(Yes, I am talking to you Kindo, and Glorin)

check the events forum, it has a pretty interesting new aproach which i tend to use in more forums also will i start checking back every single topic one by one checking in upon them. and about the new forum, i'm not sure wether it will stay but at first it did work as hoped, took the fun out of spamming for at least glorin,tp and kindo. i'm starting to like the new aproach more and more. icon_smile.gif if the new forum keeps people from going oftopic on other posts as in suggestions and such then i think it's worth it. better to have all spam in one place then to have it spread out over the whole forum. in addition making something "legal" often takes away the fun of something. and i hope that effect will take place here too.

ShadowCore for forum mod! icon_biggrin.gif

No really, why not? ShadowCore is a trusty and honest enough guy, and he's around often...

So why not make ShadowCore a new forum moderator?

Vote ShadowCore!

i'm not changing anything more (unless maybe about the new forum) till i've spoken with fooz. i was thinking we might let every forum have it's own little mod who is there just for that forum. also i have never stated that this forum is a permanent one but it seems to work for now. if you ask me i've seen much more valuable posts in the the other forums and less "in between" posts. though i like the idee of every forum his own mod too. it is also used on other forums i've seen.

I think adding in the stupid anything goes forum is wrong. It encourages spam, and will not eliminate it from the main forums. Why don't you just make the rules clear in large print (new link, like search) and anything you see, lock/delete, and persistance after warning will result in a (temp)ban.

naming glorin the badgermouthed encourages spam too, but it's fun and spam can be fun too. it's not really spam i'm oposed to, it's more going offtopic with spam. though i send my idees to fooz and i hope he agrees with them. and yes they do include removing this new forum. but for now let it be and see how people respond to it.

Can I also add that (although I'm not 100% sure what Fooz intended when he made this place) these are forums for Dyso developement, news, comments and general info, not a kiddies playground.

Oi!! I resent that. I'm not a spammer, I just post a lot of useful things, because that's about all there is to do for me in school.

What the ****** is going on on these forums? Sjeesj, it's spam all over. GET ANOTHER MOD IN HERE TO DELETE SOME STUPID STUFF!!! This is just getting incredibly stupid. There is way too many spam around here. And something needs to be done.
