Suggestions on how to improve the forums

posted by ryannumber1gamer on - last edited - Viewed by 21.8K users

I made this thread so people can discuss how the fourms can be improved so i'll start off.

I think the classics part of the thread should be back in the main menu of the fourms with all the rest of the forums topics because since they are in the classics hardly anyone ever replys anymore to them.

    TBH, we're getting pretty good about talking about spambots as well. Half this thread has been about them!

    Wow. When spambots post in here, it's SERIOUSLY weird. ;)

  • I've been lurking here for a few months now and I've never seen a spambot =O kind of want to now if they're a bit weird.

    Well if you want to see what a spambot looks like, then somehow I think I can oblige. They tend to post meaningless gibberish about how life is filled with pain but overall it's worth living because that's the way everybody feels and you totally shouldn't feel like you're the only one suffering. All of this pointless rambling is sprinkled with a few links, ostensibly to things like the most recent episode of a TV show, or Skyfall Movie Online. These links aren't actually to the episode, but to a scam website that'll try to get you to download some software, ostensibly to allow you to watch the shows or films, but really it's a typical useless piece of software that'll only clog up your computer. Oop, time for another link, so let's go with The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5. Each post by these spambots usually contains four or five of these links, if not more, which can be quite annoying to look at. And since these are spambots, they either post several links to different shows, or they just keep repeating the same link throughout the post. Either way, they're nothing but a nuisance given how frequently they post once they start - they can create between two and twelve new threads if left unchecked. Next link's gonna be Castle Season 5 Episode 6, which you should all watch because that one's actually hilarious, given how it's a Galaxy Quest-style parody of classic Sci-Fi shows and it's directed by Jonathon Frakes. True story. So that's what these spambot posts look like. I hope I've managed to satisfy your curiosity as well as provided a smile for others who are looking at this post and wondering what the hell's going on before realizing I'm taking the piss. One last link methinks, so let's go with something else that's currently on, namely Red Dwarf Series 10 Episode 5. The show's not what it was, but it's still miles better than Back to Earth, so there ya go.

    (The links are safe, people. Try 'em and see.)

    CHEATER! We tried to avoid the real stuff.

    Errr... and you know how spambots attract each other? How do you think they find each other?
