    Default Trion stop the forum spam!

    Hire someone who knows how to secure forum software against bots and fire the one in charge right now, its not so difficult actually...

    its really getting ridiculous.

    They should hire a European mod to keep the forums clean while America sleeps. I'm available btw

    Probably won't see this due to all the spam clogging up the What's new box. LOL

    I blame that Trove box for being opened

    If they can't [ cannot ] manage the forum spam they may as well close the pages down for all the good they are doing. I manage a forum and I will delete immediately it occurs. Appears they are either incredibly laid back and lazy or deliberately ignoring the problem. What other reason is there ? Can't [ cannot ] say I have ever seen anything that bad on any forum, like anywhere. Very odd.

    I swear the spam is breeding, it's moved off the Tech Support onto other sub sections now

    I posted this before, no harm reposting this screenshot, this is how FF14 deals with it, i'd say apply it to all sections, if you're not playing Rift or at least don't have leveled past level 1 chars in the game you have no business posting, simples

    Apply to all sections, yeah, great idea, then Joe Newbie who can't get into the game to create a character can't even post on the Tech Support forums, something that SE allow.

    Did you THINK about this stupid idea (apply to all sections), for even 5 seconds?

    No, the solution is to employ LIVE moderators and someone to write a half-decent filter for the data entry panel in the forum software.

    Actually you can employ a combo of the two. I agree that disallowing positng rights entirely to new people who need help getting the game to run in the first place is shooting oneself in the foot. Especially seeing as the tech support forum is the one that gets nuked most often. But they can put caps on the number of new threads one account is allowed to start in x amount of time for starters. Maybe limit it to 1 new thread every 5 minutes. I'd assume devs and mods wouldn't have to have the restriction.
    I will not delete my characters for an unwated server merge.

    They can moderate posts and lock threads, but they can't delete spam? What's up with that?
