this is owned by VS - click the "advertise" link at the top and it's clearAs a moderator, you need to look at everything. Use the new posts link. I just did that and well there we have 20 more pages of spam. Answer some questions for us.
As a moderator, are you unable to do an IP ban? what about an IP range ban? Like 123.456.789.*.
What are the IP addresses of this current batch of problems? I'm curious of the country of origin.
When someone clicks on the "report post" button where does the notification go?
I'm happy to volunteer as a moderator for any forum I frequent, as long as the forum is privately owned. That rules out every forum owned by VerticalScope, a large for profit company. If they want people to work for them, they should pay them. I bet you'd visit the forum daily if you got a paycheck for it.
Both this time and the earlier time I've PMd a VS support team member on a site that they're more active on. Don't know if that's why it got fixed or not.
Skully25 is only a mod for pics/vids and lobby, so I wouldn't think he'd be expected to browse the other subforums (obviously he can if he wants, I don't know if he has any mod powers there). In my experience, mods can't ban. They may or may not be able to push enough warnings to result in a ban until an admin arrives to do it for real. They almost certainly can't IP ban.
Super Mods can typically directly ban, it's possible that all the mods here are super mods because I don't see a separate list.
