To all the ladies.. and some gentleman..


Recommended Posts

What happened this afternoon is appalling.. and I'm sorry this happened to all of you. I do know that as soon as Optic comes on it will be handled.. but for now, let's just stick together and continue blocking whomever is doing that and deleting their posts.. I just had to delete over 20 of them on my profile. I do wish we had another admin on here to ban those users..

I'm glad this forum is so strongly connected with one another. Everyone is so kind, and sticks together when it's needed. I'm so happy that I came back. It's places like this that make me realize that

Optic we have another lewd poster !!!!   wheres the banhammer ! wheres the moderators ! wheres the …. oh its just Wedgy  

OK, I have taken action against the five spammers, they were all alts of a single person. The main issue is new members are able to post on other member profiles AND send direct messages to other

I haven't had this happen to me? Can you explain what exactly is going on? Is this person/bot named 6th just spamming people, or are they leaving hateful messages that you have deleted. From the picture you have, all I can see is that someone named 6th has posted on your profile far more than what seems acceptable. Also, yes I agree. There needs to be other mods on this site. I don't mind that I lost my mod status, even if the circumstances behind it were extremely weird, random and never got explained so far as I know, to anyone who was a mod, but Optic, like everyone else, has a life outside of these forums, and should appoint at least a few people to moderate while they aren't around. We had a problem the other day where it seemed like at least 6 bot accounts were making threads and posting in them like mad and there was no explanation as to why it happened and they sat there for way longer than they should have. If someone had, had the ability to close these threads and ban the posters, it wouldn't have gotten so far out of control.

A person is targeting females (and me) and posting/pming pornographic text.

We've had issues like that in the past here, and like then I will say it now, that is all kinds of not okay. Not only because it violates the rules of the forum, but also because it's harassment of a sexual nature. I'm sorry to have to deal with that. That's just not okay at all.

Yeah. In the past though, it was never quite this bad....of course back then we had more staff members to do something about it. It doesn't bother me at all. I just wish I could do something to protect the females on here. In the past, I could actually do something about it.

It's like I said in my first post, we need to have more mods on this site. I brought that up a while ago if memory serves, and nothing came of it. It's frustrating that people get to do whatever they want while we're all here stuck waiting for a resolution that can, and should come quicker.

I agree.. at least a few mods and admins.

That kind of goes to my point though, that there needs to be more mods. This site is too busy and brings in too much traffic for only one person to handle everything.

I know I don't exactly have a good reputation on here anymore, but if someone wanted to make it so I can clean out posts and spam from time to time I'd be more than willing.

I don't think people saying "I'll be a mod" should be how things are handled. It's also not about popularity or reputation either, but it should be about time spent here, effectiveness to respond to things, willingness to listen to user complaints and so on.

Well, I'd just like to prove that I've changed and can be a valuable member on the site for once.

I agree with this.

That's fair enough, but starting that off with "I'll be a mod" or some variation of that isn't a great way to go about it.

I agree with this.

 

Perhaps if this thread doesn't become about the conversation of new mods, someone ought to make one, though it should be with Optic's approval.

But at the same time, you need people who are willing to dedicate themselves to learning how to use the modcp. I've seen too many people be super active for a long time, get invited to join staff and then drop off the face of the earth never to be seen again. Btw, I should mention that I'm a former staff member of AF.

The person group messaged 9 of us. Unless I'm mistaken 8 were female and then there was me, a male.

EDIT: Apparently I was mistaken. There were several males and females.

The profile message spam was done to all 9 of us from the pm.

That's true to a point, which is all the more reason to have a discussion about it.

I can't see why you would, it's clear enough this site needs some help with getting spam and now apparently, pornography managed.

Was that before I joined? I don't recall you being a staff member back then.

But maybe I never noticed, ah I miss the old blue layout so much.

I'm guessing that's a spelling mistake.

Back when we ran xenforo we never had this many issues
