    Link to your message forum removed. We understand that you're looking for assistance in getting message board spam stopped, and we're more than happy to help you with advice, but if we allow you to have a link to your message board (based on Transformers, like our message board) it's too close to our advertising rule. If you'd like to advertise your board, you are more than welcome to you in your signature. - Kickback

    I noticed that they're all guests, You need a registration of some kind before allowing them to post, like here.

    Ohh the irony.


    Letting anyone post without registering is asking for trouble.

    1. Don't let guests post. Ever.
    2. Have a group of mods you trust implicitly. I've seen boards fall apart through a falling out between staff.
    3. Set firm rules, and do NOT deviate from them.
    4. Have a heirarchy of sins, so to speak; set punishemnts (ranging from warnings, through temp bans and up to permanent bans).
    5. NEVER allow exceptions to any of the above.

    For an example, see your original post. Nobody did it to be a jerk, but rather to keep the rules strong. Even with registration, you let a few things slip and you're no better off than before.
    OKAY WAIT THATS NOT RIGHT

    Seriously what else do you want? Did you do any off this?
    It's all honest advice. I checked out your site, it seems pretty far gone unless you start doing this stuff. Telling posters "my aunt died so stop spamming" is not going to work. You even posted that and said you weren't sure if it was the right forum. If you don't know the rules how can anyone else?



    BTW I still think you are cybertron2006.
