A call to arms
 
Good evening fellow WF'ers,

as many of you know the forum has been seeing great growth lately, with great growth comes more attention and traffic to the forum. This brings our fair share of spammers.

With the new forum upgrade we have gained the feature of user infractions. these are basically points against people for doing stuff that they shouldnt do. However we enjoy a very lax atmosphere here and I intend to keep it that way, so we will not use user infractions for silly micromanagement reasons. But on the same note I hate spammers, so we will use it to ban spammers!

Now this is typically the jobs of the admin and mods, but we cant be on 24 hrs a day. Now as a community you guys do a great job of reporting bad posts but it still takes us time to get to the offending post and delete it and ban the user. So with the new infraction system I have set up a special infraction that I call "Spammer" this infraction autobans the user.

Now DON have you lost your mind? Are you going to give every user of the community the capability to essentially ban anyone? Well no, no im not. But I do trust in our community, especially those members that have been with us for a while. So what I do propose is forming the Antispam Militia, While these members wont have the powers of say a mod, they will have the capability to Ban spammers.

This is open to any forum member that is interested in helping out. all you need to do is post in this thread with a simple, " Im in! " we will assemble the group from the interested individuals and finish setting it up, then we can all work as a team to snipe spammers as they enter our community.


on a side note, we will watch this group carefully and anyone found abusing the system will be removed from the group.

BTW - Thanks for your effort on this. I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say that some of the spam has really gotten out of hand and some is down right offensive. You can count me. Do I get to wear a badge?

We better quit. We're hijacking again. We need to act like responsible adults so we'll be considered for Spam Patrol.:D

khenderson 11-29-2006 01:02 PM

Spam Militia! And you'll be part of it whether you hijack or not, but the badge is what's on the line here. :eek:
