Yeah, I say add 1 or 2 new mods. Also, a captcha, although that won't stop BF2Player.

It would mean that the mods could check the ip etc, to prevent the immediate spamming thing going on......
Again if new members need immediate help and no mods are around this will chase them away.

I think the only real solution is to have enough mods in the different time zones.

How about getting more mods? These George or Furgy variants or whichever member they're from are really annoying and yet they constantly get away with it because there are never any mods online when it happens.

i havent seen any new members post pictures. if they need to post one they could just pm a mod or another member.

some new mods would also be good though. im just trying to think of ways to clamp down on all the spam full stop

he might have the same one as others, that would not be cool, getting his internet from that provider taken away would be a great start

if several people file complaints then the ISP might take action pretty fast

how about before any new member is allowed to post the account has to be approved by a mod? we could do IP checks and then approve or disallow the member access.. would be more work load, however it could work..

would stop morons like bf2player etc from doing the same thing again..
