We might be able to stop the spammers if the forum had an option to flag the users. It's basically reporting, but you click a red flag by the user's name most of the time. Then you have 2 options:

- Flag the post

- Flag the user

And then a scroll down option list:

- Breaking forum rules

- Spamming (bans account and deletes account's threads if it's legit)

- Other

and a required box where you must type what specific thing the offending user was doing.

You can only send 1 flag per user, and 2 flags per user about their posts. You can send a total of 5 flags about users every new day for the server, and 6 post flags every new day for the server. So use flags wisely. If the flagging system is abused, the offending player will not be able to flag posts/users/both for whatever amount of time the admins/mods choose.

Thanks SoD!

If you guys see me in-game (I'm a viking named DeadlySilverNadder-- creative I know lol..) and you try to talk to me and I don't respond but jump or do emotions, I'm probably muted.

My Main Dragon

Who do I even choose?

Clever, it might work. But

Clever, it might work. But still it wouldnt stop them from actualy spamming the forum on the weekends because the admins are not working on those days.

Well, maybe if a post gets enough red flags from enough users from different IP's, the post will be deleted? (Only works on weekends)

If a user gets enough

If a user gets enough redflags from different users then his/her posts will all be deleted and the spammer will be able to post no more until the admims get online. That would work.

hmm

Well, I think some bullies could abuse it, but I guess it can still work.

Yeah... I've been accused of spamming because I held a conversation with someone on a different thread. So yeah...

Look who's actually doing something with this again!

 

 

 

Profile pic was done by the fantastic Katarile! TYSM!!!

 

 

I just wanna start off by saying, I have no idea what I'm doing. Help me. 

 

I heard that ya peeps don't like it when people have a ton of pictures because it uses more data, so I put my signature in a Google Document. Plus, it's easier for ms to edit then. 

 

So just click the link if you actually care.

For the rest of you...

(probably most of you honestly. I've never been the "interesting" type.)

Then the admins would have

Then the admins would have make a new forum rule. It might sound something like this: "Any user found guilty of using the Red-Flagging system for the purpose of bullying other users will be permanently banned!"

I like this idea! Another idea I've had for a while is blocking users. Bascially what I was thinking is if you block someone, you can't see or reply to their posts and they can't post on your threads or reply to you. If you're on a thread and a person you blocked posted on that thread, you would see a message where their post would be that would say something like "You have blocked the author of this post." Maybe you could even have an option to show it. I feel like this would stop a lot of drama that happens on the forums.

I have to go rn, but I might add more later. :)

YYYYYYAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSS....!!!!!!!!!
I refuse to pay attention to certain forumer's posts after how they treated me (but we don't need to go into that), this would make it a lot easier.
