    That too.
    My main concern is those people bumping the spam.
    Not as many use the wiki as the forums. Meaning not as many people will get harmed cause of it.

    Please don't leave. I think you only need to take vacations from GBATemp. This will NOT continue forever.

    I'm afraid this kind of spam will start happening more regularly if people aren't punished for bumping. There were some users who got PM'd that image last year for being suspected of using a9lh.

    I'm going to be honest.


    This will continue forever. As long as the spammer is noticed he will come back. Unless this bumping is solved he will come back.

    He will only leave when he doesn't get noticed anymore.

    for the record, you can limit PMs sent to you to "People You Follow Only" if you want to let certain others PM you, but not new accounts.

    Maybe the spam would stop if people didn't make such a huge deal about it every single time it happens

    I did that, but I just thought I'd mention it since it means this has been going on for a while now.

    They are going to make a huge deal because nothing is stoping/scaring them. If we implant a warning system for bumping spam then they won't make a big deal.

    Do you think that the gore spam which was posted is not a big deal?

    Of course it's a big deal, but let mods deal with it and don't give the spammer the attention they want. This last part of the thread is probably a huge inspiration to the spammer to keep going because he's getting such a huge reaction from people.

    Now if only the staff could make a big deal about it silently and punish people bumping spam...

    People will only start letting the mods deal with it if people who bump get punished somehow, which, from what I can tell, isn't happening.

    Oh, yes I totally agree! Telling people to stop bringing attention to a post with gore is definitely worse than spamming gore! /s
