This has clearly become an issue,
I am tired of spam like what I have been seeing on the forums these days. If I see anyone having spam wars from this day on, they get a warning, if you do spam excessively (like Nick12506 has been), you get a warning, 3 warnings and you get banned. I spent the last hour going through the forums removing posts (Most are from Nick12506, but not all) and locking topics that have become spam war topics.
This is a forum about Spore! If all you want to do is spam, then just go somewhere els,

Sadly, the smf 2.0 version has not been fully tested yet so I do not want to switch to that and the version of word count on that update is for smf 1.3 and does not work with smf 1.8. I will get the 2.0 smf word count once 2.0 is fully tested.
-I will try to keep an eye on his posts. I try to remove pointless posts and posts that users make in response to their own posts (aka talking to themselves).

I agree with this. That SMF thingy sounds good. Does it target one person or does it apply to everyone?

 
Ok thanks sporecheater. And Kaos i know my words came out strong but its very annoying when you click on unread posts and its just Nick saying "yeah well your stupid" know what i mean

I  also agree with this. When I first put up 'The war of the empires', Nick did everything that I put in the rules NOT to do.
Here is a system that I think would work:

spams once: gets warning

3 warnings: 2 day post ban

3 post bans: week ban

3 week bans: total ban forever.

all this done while he has the customised SMF. That should work. If you don't think it's good, or you don't think it would work, SporeCheater, you can edit this whatever way you want.

I like coming up with base ideas for things, and I like to see them edited by others. Thats the kind of person I am... Cheesy

This thread will remain open. Chaossupersonic, I understand that what nick did is annoying, I am sorry he did that. I am going to see if I can figure out something. I added a creativity section and I will think of a moderator for that specific section to make sure that the rules for the stories/creations are being followed. The moderator will only be able to remove posts of the people posting if it is not correct. If no guidelines are posted for the topic then it is fair as long as it is not purposely posted to annoy people.

Hey, I just realised what your pic was SporeCheater. It's a cell... I used to think it was a spaceship with thingies around it. I know, not relevant to the topic, but still, I figured it out just then! Cheesy

Won't work I can do that right now...

Sorry but HAHAHAHAHA, SporeCheater is the owner & the only resone i'm not banned...

is the stuff about moderators spam?! I have deleted my posts about SC's avatar

I'm quessing no because if it is blame SporeCheater.

@#$@ I deleted my last post but I copy/pasted it because my browser saves forum info from older pages.

SporeCheater lock this & delete all the posts under & above this one that are spam.

Kaos: Ahem. Not properly censored, this forum is rated E for everyone.
