Hello d3scene users,
There is obviously going to be spam on our forum, that is why we must have moderators . However, there are things you can do, and ways you can react to this spam to help us out.
1. Report any spam using the report button ().
2. Please do not reply to spam, this only creates more spam :x. If one person spams or double posts, and then you respond saying "spam" or "don't double post" that is spam, and creates more work.
& the d3scene staff

Thanks Diesel! That's a very good point about not replying with "double post..." or "spam post.." or "There goes the spammer again."
As a moderator/admin myself I know what you mean. First I have to delete the spam post, and sometimes ban the user. Then I go back and have to delete the posts that say "spam" since it looks tacky to leave these posts in.
Thanks for highlighting these steps. Very useful.
Oh, i mostly press that button and say something like: Next time use the edit button cause Double Posting isn't allowed .
