Also, how about restricting sigs and posts with URLs in them until you've made a certain number of posts? It probably wouldn't stop some of the cleverer bots (or any spam account that has at least a minimal amount of human control), but it might help.

I think thats a good Idea! make them work for it!

Yeah! I've noticed alot of spam games on the 'hot games' page in the arcade at the moment! Maybe an administrator checking that out would be handy!

Please elaborate rather than just making accusations.

Mods check everything.

If you suspect spam, just use the 'Report' link, whether in the forum or the Arcade.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Okay, I'll be sure to do that in the future! Thank you for letting me know it was a problem! See you round!
By the way, thanks to all the mods who make this a better forum!
