Moderator said it will be dealt with tomorrow, when GL's guys will get back to work. And until then we'll just have to wait

Quick - save us!
Can you increase the minimum time between posts? I know there is a switch in the forum for that as I ran i to it one day

Hi, I've done a quick search on the DML forums and noticed no spam/bot accounts as of the time of this post. If you encounter them in the future please PM me their profiles and I'll take care of them. Don't forget to also use the report this post feature where possible. Regarding your suggestion soukupmi, I'll pass it to the appropriate team. Thanks.

Maybe there is a blacklist for certain words where you could add "*****" ?

Hi soukupmi, just took care of those 2 bot accounts. "*****" has also been added to the censored words list. Thanks.

Adding it only helps if you can prevent posts containing the word to get posted. I don't know if this forum software supports that - it was just an idea

Afaik it will only censor the word (it will be displayed as **** instead of *****) and not prevent the user from actually making the post. I'll look to see if there's any other method, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. It would most likely have to be implemented as a new feature in the forum software, meaning that it can't be done on a short notice, if at all. :/
