Seems the forum is starting to get hit by spam bots.

Maybe add captcha or something when posting a new topicor reply?

Yea. I'm noticing them a lot more than usual. For some reason, I can't report them either

Thanks guys, the forum software just released a major new version which allows post reporting, I'm looking at getting it installed ASAP.

Mods should still be able to delete posts, atm I'm reading 90% of all posts and will delete them as they come.

Or reintegrate the "foe" feature, it was the nonviolent way: ignoring spambots without killing them...
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog

I can't delete posts yet, or do anything moderly. I've seen spam but had to leave it because of that.

Arima do you not have a 'Post options' button under each post?

@Arima.

I also just noticed that, unlike other forums, there is no colour differentiating a MOD from a normal user, i.e. Tom's avatar etc just looks the same scheme as everyone else. Seems a little wrong to me

I like to see who the MODs are in a board zenox982011-07-01 17:11:13

@Zenox, that is planned :) The forum software doesn't allow it but we will be moding it ourselves.
