Serious Thread
Hello, fellow Mario Mayhem members, I, myself, have addressed a bot alert, it seems as though as bots such as kevinaddes and others are spambots. They post about themselves in random secions, Timby, I ask you this, ban any spambots, please? If yes, then I ask everybody to report spambots.

RE: Serious Thread
It appears Timby has been busy deleting the bots, but he does have to be careful; someone may seem like a bot, but they may actually be just someone with really bad grammar/typing skills. So there is a chance of falsely deleting someone. I say we just wait it out. I think Timby is going to put a Captcha! into the registration page to stop all future bots?

I'd pass on the Captcha! idea, although it is ultimately Timby's decision, I think it gives us a job Smile.

Haha I do like to keep our mods and admins on their toes Big Grin I'll look into adding a new captcha to the sign up page, but other than that we will just have to delete any stray posts for now!

I'd much rather spend my time actually dealing with troublemakers and other such things than generic pieces of code meant to advertise.

RE: Serious Thread
As I mentioned in another post, I suspect they aren't bots but rather people paid to post to add links to a website. A new captcha won't help I don't think, but it won't hurt either.
