I've removed around 70ish or so "bots" in the last 32 hours.

This afternoon alone there were about 10 newly registered spam accounts within a 30 minute window of time.

Will just have to stay on top of it until they give up or run out of IP addresses xD

Spam waves, as they happen in cycles. Every 6 months give or take, there are such waves.
Users are bothered for a few days, and forgot they ever happened, and 6 or more months later, surprised users discover that Scirra forums do tend to be the target of spam waves of bots.

Meanwhile, we take care of all the bots, whether the users of the forums notice it or not.

Yes its very odd since I don't see that type of behavoir in other game forums at least not as bad. WHo knows who it could be my best guess is that gdevelop guy but thats just a guess. Who know why these idiot's do that.

I also noticed that. They don't seem to end.

Its gotten so bad one day ealier in the week I reported some thread as spam and it wasn't spam. It was just the way he worded his questions was so odd I didnt look at the link he provided, I though it was a trick.

Well at least it's your key words.

Are the spam all from the same IP? could you perhaps make it check how many times someone has posted within the last 5 minutes, and if it is above a certain amount, force them to type in some captcha code thing? Or answer some random question about construct2 (something that can be learnt in the manual or whatever).
