Hi, the amount of spam and bots in the forums is a bit annoying. Is the maintenance left as is for a reason? Is it because a declining in activity or lack of moderators, maybe?

 

 

I was a former admin for an Invision-based boards too. I know it can be time demanding...

 

I have no intention to apply to be admin here, but I don't mind helping at all with the moderation and cleansing. That is, if you want me to.

 

 

Please let me know anytime, ok?

The most authentic question is: who is minding the forum at the moment? that is to say, who is in charge of it? we are deeply struck by the state it's in at the moment.

You tell me, you've been here longer than I...

 

I've only been consulting this forum for 10+ years or so. It's been my main resource for everything about booting and trimming Windows.

 

It's a bit sad to find Bootland in decay...

Hola,

 

We might indeed need some help. Jaclaz was sending me an email to look here, but in past years I've been too busy with other topics and not participating as much as I'd like. If you are willing to help keep the board tidy, I'd certainly be happy to see that happening.

Hi Nuno,

Good to hear from you. I checked in recently as a guest and noticed a lot of spam - thanks for clearing up the forum.

I also have a lot going on and am spending less time here. This forum is generally a lot less acticve, however is still an invaluable resourse. I am happy to help out for trying to keep on top of spam and suspending/deleting spam accounts when I am here - if you want give me sufficient account privilages? I would have mentioned this via PM, however I have PM issues on my account.

@Nuno
 
I appear to have more mod powers than previously so you may not need to make any changes to my account. I recall limited moderator functions being available to me in the past, however there seem to be more options available to me now. Or they may have been there but were not easy to find!
 
Only way to test fully will be if I see any spam topics!


Spoke too soon. I found a couple of spam posts however do not have moderator access to the sub forums that they are in (the Topic Moderation function is missing)

The offending topics are -

Thanks Misty. I think those were the last two spam topics. If you see anything else just ping here. :cheers:
