"Illegal Spots" Bot Adverts/Spam.

    Right, so it seems as soon as Josh took the restrictions off the Illegal Spots forum (only admins can make topics -> anyone can) we've had a lot of random spam topics made.

    I don't know WHY the bots are only spamming/advertising in that particular forum, but seems like the easy way to prevent this is just to up the posting rights again (maybe this time to Donator+) and maybe put a heading telling players to PM their query to an Admin/Donator for them to post for them?

    It worked fine before, and yes it would be nice to let anyone post there, but I personally prefer a spambot free forum :razz:

      They got so bad on my local site we had to turn off new user registrations. They had to email one of us to get on the forum. I agree, stupid bots

      *sigh* I definately will take the blame for this one, since i was the one asking why i couldn't post in the illegal spots section.
