    Enable 'Report Post' Button.

    As the thread says,

    The forum is already full of useless and spam post, where every thread always get out of the topic and mostly nonsense, even with topic that has nothing to do with the game, and this is not only happening in Wartune Section Forum & Sub-forums, its everywhere.

    People seem to be interested in spamming the forums without even reading the thread title, just to leave a message which makes the new readers confused since they can't find what they were looking for.


    It's just too easy to add it, and this is a vBulletin forum, much easier. ( vb admincp )
    Just need to make a new private section like those the staff already have and are only seen by them.
    If it's hard to be handled by mods, at least could be enabled here or those sections that are the most active.
    Also the "Reported Posts" section must be supervised by mods and also could keep an eye in everyforum that has this system to avoid the spam.

    I think we are already bored seeing the same and repetitive posts in every thread.

We'd be swamped going through reported posts to the point where we wouldn't have time to actually read the threads and make sure your issues are properly reported. The delay in getting to posts would result in players reporting posts just to get our attention called to them.

    Trust me, it has been a topic we've discussed, we just don't see it working out the way it should. In the meantime, if you feel a thread is getting out of hand, please send a link of the thread to a moderator- it's what we are here for.


    Please make sure you're not trying to post a new thread in the News & Events section. You need to click on a sub forum to post a new thread.
    As far as I know and have been working with vBulletin from a long time, I know it is not that easy, BUT, here is the solution.

    - Better Forum Rules.
    - Better Moderation System.
    - Enable / Use Infraction - Warning System.
    - Add forum features that allows you to prevent bots such as smart Captcha when registering.
    -Etc etc etc.

    I could provide a long list of ideas that can make this forum clean and nice for all of us.

    BTW: All ideas that are able to be done, of course.

    This situation occurs in pretty much every thread posted, and I'm sure many people share your views about it. I know I certainly do. It's certainly an idea that should be considered.
