Excessive SPAM and the Vanilla Forums

The title of this thread used to read; WHERE ARE ALL THE FORUM MODS? But we have discovered it's not their fault. They are doing everything they can to clean up the mass spam and ban the bots, but every night it's the same old song and dance. They say that all new users have to be approved, but that is obviously being bypassed.

We have reasons to believe Nexon is using open source Vanilla Forums. Which is probably why they keep coming through. Read the comments toward the end of the thread. Thank you.

    No need to overreact. It's July 4th and people have lives.

    Meanwhile I'm just sitting here wondering "Someone thought that spamming paragraphs of (korean???) text on a forum where most people only speak english would be a good idea and of great success."

    I'm more confused than I am mad.

    Edit: Wow, they even made a spam post in the suggestions section.
    Jokes on them, hardly anyone browses that.

    While I realize it was during July 4th where most people are up doing some fireworks or asleep by then... I do think it'd be nice to have few more VFMs to watch over the forum and take care of them if needed.

    Agreed, imo I feel like forum moderation has been a bit lax since Sabina 'left'.

    Discord is not a forum, it is a instant messaging program. Forums are automatically there for games available on Steam - whether publishers or game developers want them or not.

    My reaction to this thread:

    *Sees title* "Geez Gaea calm down, what's the big deal? They might be all celebrating fourth of July or still at that anime expo thing. With a title like that the thread is probably just going to get deleted or locked."

    *Goes back and notices pages and pages of Korean spam bots*
    "...I stand corrected. Where is everybody?"

    honestly looks like a salty NA player just created a letter spamming bots and switched his keyboard to korean :U

    Edit: Creative spambot, Samsung and massages on the one i bothered translating. is the only two words the creator knows in korean?
