Has anyone else noticed that spam topics are starting to start showing up out of nowhere lately? Its almost as if this forum is starting to be "attacked" in a way. I've seen, like, 4-5 topics today alone that were considered spam topics and closed. This is getting a little crazy.

Yeah, what the hell is going on around here? Are people starting to have mental breakdowns or something? :S

i think people are too anxious about 1.3 that they stay around the forums all their lives and make topics when they're bored

That made me laugh for a good while too. Especially with Karrde's reply to it. XD

People are bored and find it amusing to spam here.

At the end of the day, that doesn't bug me, because I find it equally amusing to terminate the e-livelihood of those people. They can continue to pour in and spam as they see fit. It takes more effort to register an account than it does to ban one.

Hint: <s>don't</s> spam.

That's an extreme case of boredom o_O

But I don't think it's an "attack" or "plague". I think Andreyesf just needed to calm his ass down, which happened in the form of a permanent ban, and a couple other were just bored I suppose.

We're under attack by a Super Saiyan, but don't worry. Everyone knows Super Saiyans are foolish.

But in all seriousness... just wait until the day after 1.3 comes out. O_O

So? I'm pretty sure the mods know what they're doing. If they want to start warning people and banning people for this "spam" they'll do so. Let them handle it.

P.S: Horses are pretty when made by Lisa Frank.

Horses are pretty.....o.0

Anyways, you're right, I don't know what got into the people here. But it must be 1.3, its almost been 2 years now if my calculations are correct(Which I don't think are).

Thats what happends when a comunity grows. After the serious people are all already registerd and hanging round. Some people join and find it nice to "live it up" on a forum.

It happens all the time.

I mean just look at what people are line in-game. Youll see:
more people play the game = more people join the forum = more problems

I think people are just running out of things to talk about in ESF-Chat. The only decent topics that come up are the ones regarding the POTW's. ESF 1.2 has been around so long that there's nothing new to say about it.
