IMPORTANT! Regarding the spam on the forums.

Hello community! It's been a while since I actually posted anything of worth around here, I've silently been keeping the forum clean from spam and the likes together with the rest of the moderating team.

For quite a while now the spam has been growing every day and it has gotten out of hand at several occasions so in order to combat this FG's IT guy is going to be looking into the spam and see what can be done about it, this means that we sadly need to let the spam stay on the forum for a while so as to give him the info he needs to combat this in the future.

So on behalf of FG and the moderating team I'd like to apologize for the next coming days of absolute nightmare, open the floodgates.

RE: IMPORTANT! Regarding the spam on the forums.

So can't some proper captcha be implemented to combat this or is it impossible because of the forum design?

You should probably pin this thread for now so everyone can see it without this being scrolled down too much to be unnoticeable.

We're using google captcha, they're getting around it.

The spam is coming.

To be sure, are we still supposed to report it ?

Probably not. It's not like they aren't aware of it.

I've only been reporting odd ones (previously), like a single post in an off forum somewhere that they might miss... but an entire page is likely not to go unnoticed.

If it's a noticeable bot (like, anything Korean), don't bother. Feel free to report testosterone boosters, movie websites or steroids-related posts though.

Think of it more like - if the mods were in a hurry, could they overlook this one?
