    I have answered this by pm. But for all users i would like to keep you all updated that the spam add-on is being updated for better protections. Spam may increase and staff will manually remove them. Please do know that when we are online they will be removed.

    Do remember to do Not post on spammers threads or profiles or visit the links attached to the spammer.

    If you are not sure of something, please do not hesitate to ask staff via PM.

    It's still going on, as it's very annoying and useless. It just wastes the spammers time, not ours.

    They would need many new staff members who actually have time to do that. There's only around 3-5 of each staff type.

    Though i kinda spammed them with Spam reports, they got too much to do. Most likely. :3
    There may or may not even be any good future staff members on the forums.

    People have lives outside this website. Despite it's their job to watch over the forums, they can't watch everything. Ya, they may be able to hire new staff members, but a 24 hour watch is hard enough.

    You don't really need to include our name links in every post. Its fine, but it kinda spams the others with "You were mentioned" messages.

    I recently had a private conversation with TylerD that he is working on a new policy for bringing in new forums staff. But that is all the information that I have about that.
