Overload of posts on this topic

Post by Dairydeere » Fri Mar 06, 2020 4:46 am

Why is there all of the sudden almost a full page of posts that aren't even in English?

Or just a spammer. Even after I posted this another topic popped up. Hopefully a moderator can clean it up

Most of the time when you see stuff like that it’s a bot account. The account usually gets banned from the forums as well.

Last night was the worse I seen it get, the entire first page was the same topic. After I reported about 10 of them I hopped on over to the FS discord server and informed one of the mods on there about it and they took care of it pretty quickly after that.

The forum moderators are already removing spam posts in the background we wont ever see. They can't react to everything immediately as they also have (normal) working hours.
Please be patient and keep on reporting strange posts. They will do their best to remove those posts as soon as possible.

This is off-topic but is there a list of moderators somewhere?

I wanted to ask if I could change my username to my in-game name.

Click on "the team" link at the bottom of any page to get a list of giants staff and moderators.
MadMax used to deal with name changes but I'm not sure if it's him or Chris now, I'd say send Chris a pm. Mods can't change usernames.
