    I don’t know if anybody has noticed, but many “new members” are not really brickfilmers. They are really just posting spam (I’ve noticed mainly in the Post and Review part of the forum)and tutorials. I’m actually slightly appalled at this and I’m quite sad too. There is way too much spam on this forum and I think it is being much more degraded for what this site is for.

    I know you guys (by that I mean Badgerboy and Doc) can’t keep up with all of this usually and please don’t think I’m trying to promote myself for a Community Admin position, I’m just trying to point out all of this.

    I would really appreciate if badgerboy or The Doctor read this and could get back to me on this.

    Thanks for reading.

    I’ve been deleting all the spam I see and banning the members (although that doesn’t seem to do much), and I’m sure The Doctor and all the active moderators are as well.

    However, there is so much of it that it is hard to keep up. It has gotten worse recently, as it seemed to be only happening on occasion during late June and July (although it’s not nearly as bad as when it first started in April and there would be pages upon pages of spam). The one’s who can actually do something about it don’t seem willing to do anything about stopping it. And yes, they have been alerted about it, which is a shame. I suppose I could try PMing Joe.

    As far as I know, The Doc and I can’t do anything to stop it other than banning the spambots and deleting their posts.

    You guys are doing a good job on that. I couldn’t find any but when it was really bad, I just thought to myself, “what is happening here? Does anybody care about here anymore?”

    Anyway, like I said before, you guys are doing good. While I am now on BiM, I still care very deeply about this site and wish that it could be built up to its original caliber.

    Sorry for the double post, but here’s a topic that I was talking about.
