    The Spam Meter

    This is just an suggestion for the staff. You guys know how we used to have this karma system, and in some other forums members have this warning meter. So I was wondering if the staff could install some sort of component into the board with something similar, but it's for spam.

    But the spam meter is not for any members to use, it is only for the staff to use. I mean they are the only people who truly know what spam is in this forum right?? So with the meter they can add something like a spam-strike to any user they believed spam. Any person that gets two spam-strikes will get a temp ban, and then gets let back in within the same week, if they receive their third strike BAM you're gone for the month. Three more of those month-bans and youre out forever, so at least no one can say that this forum is cruel and didn't give them any chance.

    NOTE: this thread was not created in response to the epidemic of spam-initis wave that hit AO...just thinking that we don't want to become like Major League Baseball and Steroids

    Well it'd be kind of pointless....either way the mods are still having the same amount of power and i mean you dont just forget who spammed and who didnt. So it wouldnt really help or change anything, it'd just be more of a hassle for everyone, even the mods themselves.

    I have never, ever used SPAM or any other post-enhancing drugs. I set all my forum records through diligence, hard work, proper training, and an unshakable faith in Jesus Christ.

    Are y ou refering to the "Waring System" invision Power Board has? or a Rep system for members to give rep points to those who fallow the rules and bad rep points to the spammers?

    He basically means the warning system i think. Where when you spam you get a warning, and after your warnings build up you get in actual trouble for it.

    well yes it is similar to the warning system, but instead of percentages you only get three strikes, and it is not a hassle at all for the mods...I mean what's more of a hassle keep closing threads or automatical temp ban by the board

    besides that it can also help other members if we someone with those spam strikes we can skip through their posts to focus on more interest, and posts that answers the topic with though

    on top of that if you did read what i wrote tallon, that spam "meter" is only for normals to see and only the staffs can make changes to it
    to answer katsuhito's question, no it doesnt give good points because hell you don't get an "GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD" for future use for not breaking the law in the real world so it should be the same in the spam meter

    i kinda agree with pyoro one this one, i mean i know ive done a fair bit of spamming in my day...(good times)....anyway what i mean is there has tons of bogus threads started lately by noobs who just dont bother to read the rules.
