    Blocking users

    It looks like we don't have the ability to block users any more? Seeing some IM's from spammers/noobie accounts, and I thought we used to be able to block the accounts..

    Yeah, I've gotten several messages from bullshit accounts spamming me, no way to report the message or profile!

        Fucking hell..

        Anyway, I can ban them, but it's harder with PMs because I can't just click a button to ban them and delete all their posts/pms. I have to manually copy and paste their name into a ban list. But I suspect it will be fruitless, because they'll just make a new account with a different name. It seems most spammers only use their account once or twice, knowing it will get banned.

        The sucky part is as far as I know I'm the only active mod with ban powers at the moment. But you can post the names here and I can check in once in a while to remove them..

          Is there a R3V help wanted section to post up for moderators needed?

          Or fix the captcha?

            It doesn't matter because nobody except James or JasonC can make people moderators, make changes to the system, etc.
