    There should never be that many spam bots active at one time. A more active staff would solve the issue.

    It appears that Phases has hidden them. Anyways, please explain yourself. How would a more active staff solve the issue? Secondly, "active" is not the word you seek, if any. All the members have been quiet, and there hasn't been much if any big news since the unveiling. What are we to talk about?

    I moderate a Playstation forum that averages around 800 people online at a time. We have active moderators that get the spammers very quickly. If the staff was more active, they would catch the spam before it ever reaches what it has already.

    I also moderate a PS Vita forum that averages around 350 users online. Our staff consists of just 4 moderators that are able to keep the board clean of spam.

    This is how an active staff would solve the issue.

    We don't have 10 active members, so how and why would you expect the staff to be more active? Secondly, there are only 2 moderators here, and that's enough. Nothing ever happens here besides spam finding its way through every now and then. Sure there are a bunch of spam accounts registered, but I don't see how we could lessen the numbers. If activity is the answer, then the few legit members we have here need to spark some life into these forums. The staff can't do it alone.
    I also noticed that PS Vita Forum is XenForo. PSU Forums don't have vBulletin at the bottom either. I'm not sure how big of an impact forum software makes, but the sites aren't comparable. Your two sites are far more active and running different software or software configurations.

    Nah I got all their IPs taken care of and put a second layer of protection in place, they're not hidden - they're just not getting through.

    Some sites get hit harder than others. Some have more staff than others. It's always an evolving game with spammers. Yes, 15 mods on at any time would sure do a wonder for it - but we'd need 15 regular members at any time before we could have 15 mods. :P

    It's much easier for more established sites. Go to AF, tell me if you EVER see a spam post there, good luck with that! 100 staff members, nothing lasts. Brand new sites without an established memberbase, much less really active staff - of course it's harder. Goodness, what else would you expect.

    The staff here is moderating spam fine. You don't see any here do ya? Some might slip through here or there but it gets removed fast. So some names were at the bottom for a minute there.. Ok then. There haven't been for a few days and once they start getting through again, we'll stop them again.

    PSU staff sucks!!! LMAO

    Yes staff is held to a higher standard than regular members nightangel.

    Everyone has their opinions however we'll see how this plays out here it would be nice to NOT see what I posted in the initial post. TD honestly your just a suck up to staff like on the other forum. Just because the forum doesnt alot of active members staff should still try to keep it clean for lurkers and to keep members active on the forums.

    What kills me about this discussion, is it just seems a couple of you are wanting to hate, to hate. Look at it, it IS clean! LOL

    The 'dirtyness', the off-putting stuff for new members to see and be turned off because of is all simply.. consolidated onto THIS thread.
