Scirra forums appear to suffer from spam much more than any of the other forums I frequent. An effective solution used by the others seems to be to require newbie posts to be approved by a moderator, and until then the newbie is unable to make a second post. Newbies are also unable to start a thread until their probation period is over. Just an idea that is effective.

Well something isnt working as it should. I am sure all is being done that can be done but when the forums become unusable, well..

Getting more moderators to help is not practical, I agree with Ashley. This people are doing great work and don't need more moderators to help.

With all the good will in the world the current spam is still dodging the automatic efforts to stop it. I personally logged in at 8:30 and again at 10:30 and its still there, making the forums unusable. My point is that if i was a moderator the spam would have been removed by now.

I am not asking to be a moderator btw, just making a point.

Spam really bothers me.

It's rude, indecent, and impolite. It wastes space on the forums, and, when a moderator doesn't get to them, uses up memory on the host computer for the Scirra site. I think more moderators would be helpful, as long as they do their jobs.
