One guy. Well, maybe like two. Because someone got banned, and got really pissed, so he came back and went on that spree. Then, there is, computergen/flipper and I think hes here doing some stuff.


I dont know, just from what I've been told, thats what it looks like..

Nothing to worry about guys. Seti (I think) banned him, I've locked the threads.

Shouldn't be hearing anything from pandas in a veeery long time.

Yeah its bad. But hes banned now. No reason to create another thread on this. Were gettin another mod soon, so its going to be fine, and there wont be enough time for this to happen again.

The additional moderators (Arizx and Lh) were added now, and they will help out with fixing problems like this in the future.

Its not so much that spam is becoming more of an issue. The fact is, as the community grows as does the user base and the chance of spam increases as well.

EDIT: Hey, 600th post.
