A bit more on topic, there are two users, '------' and '---------' who are spambots, I believe. They're online 24 hours a day and they made a profile just to link to a website, so I think those users should be deleted.

i think that mods should have at least 1000 posts.
get going  :viridian:

Don't encourage others to post useless messages to get to 1000 posts! :victoria:

Also, I just calculated that with my current rate, I will get to 1000 posts in about 100 days.
I guess you're really attatched to this forum XD

Hacker3443 has more posts per day than I have! I have 5.917 posts per day, Hacker has 7.500 posts per day! And the day after he signed up, he had 20 posts per day! :o Still, he won't get 1000 posts earlier than me.

Which is why I personally can't see (most) people in here as mods.

Guys, a high postcount is really not a good argument for why you should be a mod! :verdigris:

We're fine for mods right now, anyway. If spam ever becomes a bigger problem I'll look into something else.

Did nobody else notice those two bots which are online 24 hours a day? ??? They are called '------' and '---------', and they link to other sites. I don't want to encourage others to go to one of those sites, but I think those accounts should be banned.

That means you will get 1000 posts in 24 Dec.! What a coincidence (week, at least to me)!

He had, after 4 days, 12.75 posts/day average! :o I wonder fi anyone else had an average like that several days after that person registered...
Also, if I remember right, Piplup1122 made 17 posts on the day he/she registered, but the average decreased fast.

To avoid staying off-topic, do not reply to what I've written before this, unless, it's important or something.

Btw: what does the 1st value (besides the color) when creating a glow do?

On-topic:

I totally disagree with Bearboy and agree almost completely with Terry. Almost completely, because I wouldn't let someone with 11 posts, for example, be a mod, if I were the admin. In my opinion, you have to know the person's behavior. I believe that 30 posts is enough for that. However, consider person A, that is online 6 hours per day and has 43 posts and another person, B, that is online 5 hours per day and has 847 posts. In opinion, A is a better mod.
Bearboy: Do you know the # (number) of members that have 1000 posts or more in this forum?

Did nobody else notice those two bots which are online 24 hours a day? ??? They are called 'Jocuri' and 'cartonito', and they link to other sites. I don't want to encourage others to go to one of those sites, but I think those accounts should be banned.

Around May 2012, there was one member that was online every time I checked the forum. That person didn't post anything. I, by curiosity, checked that person's profile. I noticed it only had 34 minutes online! Well, at lest, that's what its profile said... I also noticed it had a site's address in its personal text. I didn't want to check that site, but I only realized that it could be a spambot some days later!
Also, why did you say they were online 24 hours/day? Nobody knows. They could have stopped at 2 a.m. and log in again at 6 a.m., both times at your time zone.
I have checked their profiles and didn't see any address. Jocuri's personal text, as well as the fact that he was online almost every time I went here made me think that it was a spambot, though. cartonito had an avatar! I think that this is one of the things spambots do to make others believe they're normal members...

I just found one: '--------'.
I'm reporting both of his posts.

EDIT: If you were wondering why I remove the names each time: I do it because their name may be advertising as well.
