I agree demo but that'll never happen, here anyways.

shut the fuck up zure all of this happened in one fucking day
and were talking about thousands of fucking post
you know how long it takes to ban just one person now multiply that by hundreds of people, reading the titles to make sure you don't delete preexisting posts and then delete PAGES AND PAGES of spam topics. It's really easy to say what needs to be done and how swiftly it should be done when you're the spectator.

man, i wish i was a moderator so i could delete all of his posts

yeah, right.

You posted as if we spend every waking hour on the internet not to mention I have limited access to controls in the case of combating against future attacks.
I'm a full time student I work and manage a life, if this problem was neglected for more than a day I could understand you calling out the moderators.
But I am but one person since Active is inactive and Eraser doesn't visit nearly as much as he used to.

Should not be a problem now (they have 3 tries to guess the answer now, changed the question aswell). However some bots are still registered in here and may post something. Sorry for that.

Eraser, wouldn't it be a good idea to add more admins to this site?

I don't think it would be needed now but I also don't mind making someone a moderator.

I think that WhoElseButMe will be a good mod since he's frequently active on this site and is a valuable member to the community.

@Samarasz WhoElseButMe is already a moderator, it doesn't say it in his profile, But he shows up in the Global Moderators Group

@Eraser I could say that you could have either me or quazz as a mod, seeing he's quite active, and i'm also active to this site

Zure, WhoElseButMe is listed as an experienced modder, I also say yes to Quazz as a mod.

Zure no offence but, I think that you haven't been here for too long to be a mod (no this is not a apply to present myself to become a mod). Also I noticed you editing your own post when you start an argument, which I don't find a + point for a mod.
