The end of the board is nigh! (maybe?)

Postby Lia S » Wed Dec 09, 2015 11:01 am

Spam that never gets deleted is a bad sign. In my experience it gets followed by bills not being paid (and then the site disappearing), or by the SPAM board SPAM SPAM becoming SPAM SPAM SPAM unusable SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM because SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM of SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM spam SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM. The latter may be more likely here.

So if the spamcopalypse does happen, where shall we put the information about a replacement forum if we want one? In the topic of the IRC channel maybe?

I wouldn't worry just yet about the forum disappearing. T's probably just been busy, and this is hardly the first time there's been a build-up of spambots.

I shot an e-mail to T about it.

Maybe it would be a good idea to give spam deletion powers to someone who visits the forum more often and who is known to never get in any arguments?

(I’m not nominating anyone, including myself. I do get in arguments sometimes.)

I agree. It's getting a little out of hand.

I should clarify that spam deletion powers should include the ability to close the accounts of spammers, otherwise it’s a painful job to volunteer for (I know from experience). That’s a lot of power when one decides to abuse it.

I used to admin a board a long time ago, so I hear ya.

So, uh, T.... Since I had to go to page 2 to find this with all the spam, maybe you could give someone some kind of power? ❤️

Someone or two. I’ve thought about it. Since the only person who might annoy me enough to tempt me to take their account away for the wrong reasons... has lost their account, I might as well volunteer if that is wanted.

I am in favor of this! Lia would make a lovely mod. <3
