Zero Tolerance Policy on Spam and Advertisement

May 3, 2010 8:44 am
It has come to the attention of a number of the mods on these forums that the Non-English Games board has become a hotbed for senseless spamming and advertising bots overflowing these boards with trash. It's become so bad, in fact, that one of the mods complained in the moderator lounge about the ridiculous amounts of spam, how the mods for this board have been inactive and thus doing nothing, and how it's starting to spread through the rest of the general forum.

Surely, I don't need to tell you how annoying these people and bots have been on this board, because the bulk of you are responsible posters and readers and have to sift through this crap on a daily basis. So this is for all of you. [SMILE=s43]

Upon request, I've been made a moderator to this board (I also moderate the Warcraft III board and the Console Lounge), and for the benefit of those of you who want to share the many wonderful games not yet brought to America, England, or any other English-speaking nation or learn more about such games, I am enforcing a zero-tolerance policy to anyone who spams stupid broken smiles or mass-posts advertisements as bots.

If you spam or advertise and I find it (and I'm usually very vigilant, so it shouldn't take long before I WILL find them), your post will be deleted and your account and/or IP address will be banned. This post is your warning.

Within the next couple of days I am going to start going through the posts on this board, deleting spam and banning accounts of those annoying little violators, going all the way back to the original and forgotten posts to clean the archives, in an effort to help ensure that all of you good, awesome, and helpful people don't have to deal with this any longer.

I hope I can help you guys have a better experience on the Non-English Games board, and I hope my efforts serve you all well.

Listen, I can't tell you how many posts I've deleted and how many accounts and/or IPs I've banned. It's gotta be around 40 by now. I mean business around here, so watch out.

    Well, I'm doing pretty well so far. I've already done lots of cleaning and lots of banning.

    You fgts may have caught me "napping" (buried in work), but how stupid is it to post an advertisement in the sticky that warns that advertisements will get you banned instantly?

    You don't see it anymore because the person that posted the advertisement has been banned, as promised.
