    As much as I would hate for any limits to be placed, something has to be done I guess.
    Maybe only limit these things to new accounts? Juuust maaaaybe.

    Oh okay. Thanks for accusing me of botting.

    I think this thread got a little too heated o.O I don't think anyone enjoys coming to the forums and seeing stuff like this spammed. I like the debating and all but arguing is pretty senseless at this point.

    Can we all be positive and move on, yes yes?

    On the topic of the forums:

    Simply adding more VFMs with different time zones should help a ton. Mabinogi NA is a popular place for people from other countries to come chill out, so this should help a lot. He'll, I'd even volunteer to be a VFM o-o I'm here all of the time anyway LOL

    Ignore them. I wouldn't even reply to it if I were you. Let's focus on the main topic shall we ;o

    They're just looking for attention at this point. :p
    Yeah, I think they should hire some more volunteer mods.
    I doubt I would be good for that position since I have an EST time zone. xP
    I'd like to help though, seeing all that is going on. :c

    I'm also EST. I've seen your posts though, I'd support having you on the job!

    Thanks :o
    Personally, I think my posts come off as a bit too.. strong.. for ever being a VFM.
    If I think a certain way, I usually just post it very bluntly, and I don't think mods can do that. :p

    Did you stop to think that you making this same post that was deleted before again might not be a great idea? Or have you just forgotten to care about human decency and post longevity?

    Stares REALLY HARD at the forum spam being gone. Must have been magic.


    I was thinking about the opening post's idea though and thought it could be changed a bit.
    How about limiting the number of threads one user can create to 1-3 per day?

    I like this idea, but if it's possible either more threads can be created after so many posts or rep is had by a user.
    So upon creation of account, 1-3 threads per day. The more posts(or Rep?) the account has on it, the more threads they can make. It would catch early spam accounts since they'd only be able to make 3 posts before they're banned, and also not hinder actual player accounts. My fear is, they start posting in already made threads and clogging those up, in that system.

    She sign an agreement she is a slave, just like how interns are slaves, not yours or my fault for him/sher to sign something she did not read and agreed to by law.

    @Buffalos

    These mods are being lazy, either they get replaced by robots who do better jobs or they get replace with better mods who do not use discord as a place to report the spam around the forum.

    There are issues with replacing the VFMs with AI robots.
    1) Teaching an AI what is spam is very easy in the case of our current outbreak, however teaching this AI what is breaking other rules in the forum code of conduct is not a path worth going down (too expensive and time consuming).
    2) How would this AI know if a rule violation needs to be instantly deleted? Some people break rules on accident and others (COUGH COUGH) break them on purpose. One deserves a warning and the other does not.
    3) Sometimes forum threads are made to go off topic to a slight extent (see all of town square, heavy emphasis on Last Post Wins). How would the AI know that such threads are okay because that's their nature?
    3b) On that note, how would an AI know when derailing is happening? That's not something easily taught.
    4) We wouldn't be having this discussion in this thread because the bot would have already deleted this thread (and possibly others, given how some people keep coming in here to flame bait).

    Define "better jobs" without requiring the people doing them to be glued to the forums 24/7. Our's do the job as well as they can right now. Not going into details, but I can understand why things are a little slow right now.
    Friendly reminder that they are humans who live human lives with human jobs and human problems coming up in them.
