    I actually emailed him about it. There are restrictions in place. However they are easily over come by a person before they set up the spam bot. Keeping a board free of spam is a monumental task. I moderate another board and it cam down to every post from a new member being set to having a moderator approve the post before it is seen by anyone. After 3 posts were cleared from moderation that poster was free to have thier posts seen by everyone with out need for moderation. It was a shit ton of work for me and my fellow moderators, but it ended up working. Sure a few still get past but like I stated, it's a ton of work. Especially for a site that doesn't have many moderators.

    This is by far the largest wave I've seen. Previously there were a couple of threads or the front page at worst, but never to this scale.

    A simple "generel mod waking up" isn't gonna cut it. These threads are daily now.

    Clearly the team behind MMO-C (Not the mods) needs to wake up and do something about it - the problem is getting out of hand and its ruining the forums.

    It's beacuse they advertise "black magic" so they probably send spambots to everysite with spells and magic and stuff.

    Jokes aside, its probably because weve been talking about them for the last couple of days. An audience is the literal, exact thing that they desire.

    There is a spam delete option where it automatically deletes all other posts/thread started by the banned account.

    Sadly a bit limited there, hence we're confined within different boards. I've offered the big guys that I would gladly be a spam sweeper as I am always online when it starts, but alas, I may not. I just report a shit ton of spam then.

    Can't remember if there was. I know there was a multi-tag option but can't remember if a 'Delete all' kinda button.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    depends on the version and if the admin has it set up that way as well as giving mods the privileges to use it. The forum I moderate has 3 different mod levels: Jr mods, regular mods, and super mods. They all have different levels of privileges/actions. On that site a super mod and can go anywhere on the site and perform tasks (ban, edit, infraction, etc). Jr mods and regular mods are limited only to their assigned sections. Jr mods can only give infractions, edit, delete, and move threads.

    There's only one viable way, country-wide IP ban for India.
