Default Moderation complaint

I would like to say a issue with PE2K.

Its low level of being able to moderate the forums of bad and inappropriate topics especially when they do not belong.

As in the general Pokemon discussions.

This thread has been posted 4 HOURS ago and is still up!

I really can just speak for myself but I doubt other users want this up.

So my request is that PE2K is more aware of things like these and can infract and ban these bad users.

So what will be done?

You mean the spam bots? They go around advertising in random threads. It just so happens that the Pokemon General moderators aren't around to delete it. The other mods can't do anything about it because its not in their jurisdiction. They usually get deleted as soon as somebody with the authority to remove them is online.

I have no idea why they advertise here, since this place is dead compared to everywhere.

Yes I know they are spam bots.

However don't we have any global mods? So we just have to endure this?
What if some one lost explicit material? We need to wait for a mod to long in?

We have global mods, but that doesn't mean they can be online 24/7. If somebody decides to start spamming pornography and such, we're pretty much screwed until one of the Mods/G-Mods is online.

Like I said, the forum's lagging in activity, and that includes a lot of the moderators. It's a problem that should be taken care of, we just have to wait for the Co-Admins to come up with the fix.

Not everybody knows we get a lot of spam here, and having threads filled with advertisements for useless crap doesn't really give newcomers a good first impression.

The "solution" is to have a more active forum.

If you've ideas for fixes for THAT, well, that should be brought up in another thread.

There's this thing called "Spam Bot Reporting". It's a nifty little thread where you can go and report spambots like the one you're having troubles with, and it will be deleted as soon as possible. It's not nice to go making new threads to have a go at the moderators, because there wasn't one online who was able to delete it. Why don't you just have a go at them for needing sleep, or having to go to work, or school, or something of the like?

lol @ your comments, Ant. XD

Dude. Spam bots are a problem for us all. You can't expect mods to be on every second of the day. We have lives too, and like Gokudera-Kun said, we can't moderate sections that we don't have access to. If there was a spam thread in the fan fic section, I'd have no way of dealing with that because I'm a sprite mod. You see? And global mods have other concerns, or at least, they can't be expected to be around more of then than they can, especially when they have more important things to worry about.

Personally I don't think these spam bots affect anyone personally, apart from it being a tad annoying. I suggest you just deal with it until someone who can deal with it deals with it.

To be honest 4 hours isnt that long xD We dont have THAT many mods and on top of that, they're spread across different sections of the forum and different timezones. I understand the spam is annoying. Its even more annoying for us having to waste our time deleting it. As long as you've reported the post or posted in the "spambot reporting" thread then it will be taken care of as soon as possible. =)

This seems like a flawless idea.

And I agree with Battle star 100%. How dare Moderators log off for even a second! What if a SPAMbot were to post a link to Arabic dating!!1! God forbid a thread sit in the forum for four hours while the Mods sleep, earn money, or get their education. This is blasphemy and I am thoroughly pissedthefuckoff.

Measures have been taken to already cut down on bots creating accounts here as well as a purge already being done to the member list to delete any account that is a bot really.

As earlier stated mods only have certain powers in the area's they're given. Most they can do is just give infractions until the Bot is temped which will prevent them from making further post. Global Moderators are the only ones who can really delete and ban the user for good.

It's easy to complain about one bot that is over looked. Fact is you don't really see how many bots get taken care of before they're even a problem or are even noticed. So nitpicking the staff isn't the way to go.
