I think the forums might have a serious spam problem, where are the mods at?

It's all a conspiracy to force new users to change their avatar picture, since otherwise people can't tell their threads apart from the sporting spam threads.

I addressed this issue with a moderator. I was told it's being taken care of.

Its really annoying, but spammers will be spammers. I suppose the quick fix is to put a limit on the permissions of new accounts, but that hardly seems fair for those people that actually want to contribute and participate in the site

always be spamming vs always be moderating. For a moment, #teamspamming had a lengthy lead, but thankfully their were beaten.

Its been an ongoing situation that the mod team have been actively dealing with since it started. Best thing to do is flag the topics and/or report them via PM to the mod team and they'll deal with it eventually.
