I hope that one day we can login under our current usernames, with previous ones being unable to be used

Also I suggest that all 0 posts accounts every 6 months should get deleted and/or banned from the forum, spam bots will always get around the system, time to put the nail to it

Meh, I don't change my Name much, if at all, so I don't mid that. I agree with you on the spam bot thing, though.

That's impossible. There are too many for Maegra and I to find and ban. It would seriously take hours.

And Legend has other things to do. This isn't his job, he does it in his spare time. It's not like Sea pays him.

Then It should be Sea Kings job, don't tell me he can't do it, I've seen dozens of other forums have the same thing going on

He can. He just doesn't have the time. Once again, he isn't paid to do this, and looking at the incredible lack of advertisements anywhere on the forum or on the main site, he is paying for the domain out of his own pocket, and has to work to obtain that money. We're lucky that this forum exists and is able to continue existing at all, so why are you being so demanding? If you like those sites so much and hate ours, then why don't you just get up and leave?

That last line was needless, Merc. I do think it would be cool to ban those bots like that, but it's not possible for this site at the moment. Now stop fighting before you start, you two.

Agreed. We don't want any more harsh words thrown around after the Spark incident not so long ago.

Asura, fact is I work on average 5-6 hours a day plus I've two younger brothers to take care of on a daily basis. My free time is used to relax and play my games, and when time allows it I jump on and make sure everything's in order here at the forums alongside cleaning up any obvious spam threads and such.

As Merc said, we're all busy people in our daily lives, this is a place we come to escape that and just have fun for a bit. Don't expect too much from what little we have.

If you think you're the only one that's busy, you're wrong, L. I don't know why you insist on arguing with us. You're getting no where.

Then Add a Mod to take care of this work

BTW Merc, it's Sea's own fault that he doesn't have ads, so it's also his fault he is paying more so than he normally would be

And that last line was pure arrogance, have fun with that

You're still getting no where with this argument.

This topic is just a flame war in the making. I believe it should be closed down before the eventual argument between L and Merc gets them both banned.

Your job as moderator is to ensure this forum is secure, well, what happens if a bot uploads viruses, what then? Since you guys haven't bother stopping them from activating, you would of then costed the forum

This is a voluntary position for people who Sea trusts, there's no job descriptions or the like. Nowhere on this forum does it state that we as Mods are enforced to do anything in particular besides basically keeping the peace. In fact had we not volunteered for these positions long ago, many times this forum would have already collapsed under itself. Speaking of such, you're causing quite the ruckus as of late. And we, as peacekeepers, will have to do something about this if your general behaviour keeps up.
