    (Sees the DO NOT BUMP SPAM thread again)
    Have people been bumping spam again? Maybe we need to reconsider one of my previous suggestions: the "Yes, I'm 100% Sure this isn't spam and I want to Post Reply button.

    Honestly everyone bumping spam deserve a warning, and those who use this as an occasion to shitpost deserve a suspension.

    I would love to have to click "Yes" or a confirm button every time I want to post something even if it's not spam.

    I'm thinking maybe something above/under the part where you type a post saying "Do not bump spam" or something.

    Maybe for the first hundred posts? that way new members would get the idea by the time they really become active. they also get shoutbox access then.

    For the confirmation part I mean

    Is it really so hard to not post in spam threads? I'm starting to worry about the intellect (or lack thereof) of this site.

    I'm scared that this thread is slowly going to turn into a Poképorn discussion thread

    Regardless... We go through this far too often for it be considered an accident anymore. Most of the posts are from users that have been here for at least a year. Saying "reported" has about as much use as telling the trolls to quit making new accounts.

    Ok i think it is time to show people that bumping/quoting gore/porn/spam is bad.
    I recommend giving people who quote/bump spam (Specifically gore/porn) a warning.
    It isn't safe to browse gbatemp with all the clickbait and spam people are qouting/bumping.
    Who the fuck thinks its a good idea to bump/quote it!?!? Members are even leaving because of this shit.

    Something NEEDS to be done about it.

    Wiki access should also be secured. Anyone can modify it, and the spammer is destroying it.

    If this keeps happening, I'm considering leaving permanently. Users need to be disciplined for bumping this kind of shit.
