1. Locking meaningless or purposeless threads
I have noticed, that most of the time, threads that have had their questions answered or threads that are finished with their comp don't get locked until people start really spamming in them. I think these threads should be locked if they are finished with their purpose.
2. Deleting spam
Usually, spam only gets noticed after everyone starts doing it. Any post that does not contribute to the thread should be deleted. The same thing goes for people have conversations in the middle of a thread that can be done over PM's. This way, people can continue the thread while the spammer's posts are deleted.
3. Ignoring spammers
This is for the users, mostly. If you see someone spamming, don't reply. That just encourages them to spam more, and it makes you a spammer as well. If you see someone spamming, don't reply, just report. Report the post and it will be deleted. (Hopefully.)
4. Activity of the mods
Personally, I think the mods need to be a bit more active. If any of this is to be enforced, we need to have full-time mods, not ones that pop in for a moment and then leave again. Or the ones that never post. The mods should be covering every forum on here. Maybe you could assign different mods to different forums? At different times?
5. Do not be too strict
Nobody is going to like this forum if it's too strict. You can't just go around deleting everyone's posts. Only the ones that are spamming. So listen to what I'm saying, and enforce it, just not too heavily.
6. Correcting spelling
If someone makes a post like this:
hi i hve poblem wif mi geme
Then correct it. That is, if you can understand it. And if you can understand it, then fix it so that everyone else can, as well.
I hope Weasel and Pacifist and all the mods listen to me, because this might help the forum. I don't mean to criticize you all, but it needs to be a little bit stricter here. If you all follow these guidelines, it will probably help filter out the spammers and the idiots.
I hope someone listens to me and enforces these rules.
