    Spam!!

    I remember we had a issue a while back where we kept getting hit. Now it seems like almost daily I see a new thread where someone is spamming us?

    Whats the deal, is there not anyway to combat this? Is there a feature that we can put on which would force new members to post their first post in the new member section? At least maybe we could keep all the spam in one place with that method?

    Or possibly have an application process instead of just accepting everyone or something? Like I know on camarov6 it took like a week for them to approve my account -__-

    There are a few ways to handle this, but unfortunately at this moment only Epic can handle that. Until then, just report the post and carry on. The staff has been trying to stay on top of keeping the forum clean but sometimes we are not always able to be on here at all times of the day.

    I've banned 7 accounts in the last 6 days, Steve has banned 1, and TJ has also done one. 9 spam accounts in 6 days, just madness.

    It stinks, and I'm sure it isn't a whole lot as compared to some places, but it does seem like a lot more than usual?

    I mean, I'm just glad SOMEONE is joining the forums and being active
