Post Bots
Yes, bots are infiltrating this board with almost non-spamish messages. I believe that some of these bots may actually be low paid people who sign up to the boards manually to implement their spam, as I can't see this many getting through our registration tricks. At any rate, if you see a spam bot post, please do not respond to it, especially if it bumps an ancient thread. Instead, send me a PM or post in this thread, and I will deal with it. Do this for any new user with a seemingly off-topic post, even if it sounds like a legit post. I will delete the post, and assign the special rank of "Defeated Bot" to any banned bot. It is safe to assume any new poster is a bot, unless their post has actual substance.

To the other admins, I suggest using that rank for any bot banning.

That rank is awesome. I can only wallow in self-defeat at not creating it myself.

Yes, I tend to agree.

Someone somewhere (bsnes boards?) had an idea along the lines of making a forum where only spambots are allowed.

It's the same all over the internets it seems. Either they've gotten smarter, or it's actual people, as badinsults says.

15khz being pretty low for an snes horizontal sync rate... 640x480@60Hz is around 29kHz min.

15000 Hz / 60 Hz = 250 lines
15000 Hz / 30 Hz = 500 lines

So it'd be ok for SNES resolutions.

I just went through all the new users that have joined this month and banned any suspected bots.

Fun fact: most bots don't even bother to make a post!

Guess that's one thing about bots that don't change...
