Can deviantART do anything about the ridiculous amounts of spam clogging up some of the forums? Are they aware of it? It's getting really out of hand. The art discussion forum, for example, has so much spam that it shunts three quarters of the legitimate posts off the page.

We are already aware of it and measures are being taken.

Please refer to this thread if you need help. :)

FAQ #801: Are there any rules for the Forums?

I do miss the days when I can come to the forums and not see a third of threads locked. But what enrages me the most is how can they POSSIBLY THINK we - a community of art nerds and anime geeks - would give even the slightest fuck about those fucking sporting events they insist on us watching. Based on my experiences - the art and anime/pop-culture community despises sports and everything having to do with it (except Wii sports :paranoid:) with a burning passion :rage:

The problem is people are terrible, so there isn't likely to be any sort of solution any time soon. How unfortunate.

It's disheartening.
Computer says no.
I've just turned it into a game now where you have to comment on them before they get locked since i know this won't stop happening for a long time (probably forever).

Actually, it sounds like a pretty funny game :dummy:
