The Spam
So, I'm sure you've all noticed the weird, senseless posts (mostly in the intro section) and the members joining with weird names that look like a keyboard smash. For those of you who are unfamiliar with these, be it because you're young or simply haven't been on a forum that experiences it, these are called spam bots.

Spam bots are not real people, but automatic systems that make accounts on forums and make posts that usually contain links and garbled up messes of words. Do not click these links. They will likely take you to a virus that will screw up your computer, for lack of better words. If you see a link from a member you don't know or trust, play it safe, don't click it.

As always, be cautious, and if you see a spam post or bot, report it to a moderator or administrator and we'll deal with it accordingly.

All over the place, yep. The staff team is working to keep up with them, but there are lots lately and they're at least keeping to the intro section since they don't have any access elsewhere. The important thing is to report spam posts to a super mod or admin and don't click the links!

You know what would make it easier to keep the reports contained so all mods and admins could see them? A report button. -grumble-

Just saying.

Noted, it'll be kept in mind by myself for future reference.

RE: The Spam
yes, I have noticed the 'spam bots ' ... and I've also noticed the new users who say their kin type is a 'hfjifhbfxdtubkjhyoh' . most of them are banned, which I find good. you know how you said spam bots aren't people, but computers? I just want to type in some really hard sums and see if they get right answers... but, I won't of coarse because im NOT talking to them.

This would be awesome. At least then we could report bots and just stuff in general that needs to be reported.

RE: The Spam
you know I've noticed something about these spam bots... they all have their icq number typed in. their username is something random. their kintype is random letters. they say their not therians, but their on here. plus, they all say their 'unsure' if their a otherkin or not. and lastly, they're BANNED. (which is good)
