Alright, we just had a spam attack by multiple people. I am, thanks to Skyline, cleaning up the mess using his account, and suspending the members as I go. If there is ever a spam attack like this, please refrain from posting. Keeping the recent posts all by the spammers makes the clean up easier.

Thank you for your time, and thank you Skyline for offering your account for the clean up process. Much appreciated.

"DA PENIS" has been flooding my PM box for the past 30 minutes or so. If you have recently PMed me, I'd appreciate it if you re-PMed me in the case that I might've deleted your PMs.

To prevent any confusion, that was me using Skyline's account. Thanks again.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

Actually, that went pretty smoothly. We also just now recruited two mods. They weren't on, unfortunatly. If the two new mods((Jason and Earthbound, yay for them!)) were on we would've had it cleaned up within 2 minutes.

Damn you spaz, you didnt comment on my post! :pissedred:

Anyways, thats the point, if everyone lives in the same GMT, there will be a time where the site will be more vulnerable, you should make the staff from everywhere, to cover most time zones... get it?(comment on my post above too! )

You are some-what a model member. But you flip out on people easily.

Chris lives in the UK, I live in Florida((USA)). I'm not sure where Skyline lives but I believe he lives in the US. I'm almost always on, so I pretty much patrol the boards 24-7.

Well, that happens everywhere once in a while I dont think is a big deal and everything was cleared in no time.

With 2 mods in the UK and 2 more in USA, and some others I dont know where, the job can be done, and it wont be so hard.

Yeah, those spammers and their posts were gone in no time, while I was being PM-attacked. If we have like 4-5 mods on and Chris, they'd have to bring like a giant gang of spammers to get anywhere.

You have a short temper and flip out too easily as Spaz said.

I live near the UK actually i'm 1 hour infront of the UK and i've been here for long, so maybe i can be a mod?

But you're only 12 and too immature in my opinion, at the moment. Besides, Denmark is only an hour in front of me so we are mostly on at the same times.

Currently we have staff in quite seperated timezones, which is imperative for an international board like this.

Millermagic - GMT -0600
Spaz - GMT -0500
Skyline - GMT -0500
Cough7007 - GMT -0500

PyrOxide - GMT 0
Jason290 - GMT 0

Earthbound - GMT+ 0930

Damn spam attacks, but you're bound to get some if you have a site with forums, it's only normal really.

Bryzed, when every recent post was by DA PENIS, I think it was a BIT obvious. And you weren't the only one trying to tell me to clean it up. Crimson IMed me about it. Of course, that was half-way into the cleanup process.
