    The WoW forums have gone to shit this weekend. Since Saturday I have reported 91 threads and posts that violate the forum rules... mostly meaningless spam and the resulting threads about the spam.

    I have been whoring the post reporting for about 2 weeks in attempt to clean up the WoW forums. GF has been deleting all of the threads I report, but I guess he took the weekend off.

    Maybe you can get yourself on the mod team.

    i was banned. this is their gratitude for me reporting... 437 threads (i'm keeping track).

    i think they banned me for posting this in one of GF's threads:

    (GF posted week old news)

    i'm unbanned now. must have been a 24 hour ban. unfortunately all of my posts were deleted.

    i don't think blizzard has separate delete / ban functions on their forums, all they have is the "finger of god" function for dealing with users. every time a user is banned their posts are deleted.

    beta jumpers and spammers

    Lately the WoW forums have been teaming with beta jumpers and spammers. The beta jumpers are around because the beta is close and they have noob questions that have been answered a billion times already. The spammers are around because of the huge crowd of beta jumpers from which they can extract attention which is what spammers feed on.

    This has been my typical bi-daily report for the last several days:

    I sent that last night. Blizzard won't get it until Tuesday because they don't work weekends or holidays. I wish they would give me mod powers so I could take care of these myself.

    i skim every thread. When I see a bad post I pull up that user's post listing which leads me straight to any other bad posts they have made.

    They have been ignoring my reports for the last two weeks. And Blizzard reps have been sponsoring off topic threads and spam with their replies (which marks the thread with a bliz icon).

    I'm gonna stop reporting.

    lol, they gave Khaz the beta because he is so helpful.

    http://www.battle.net/forums/wow/thread.aspx?FN=wow-general&T=1512758&P=1&ReplyCount=394#post1512758

    Khaz always contributes to spam and OT threads, as does Kat. What an odd administration Kat is leading. Needs more iron fist.

    Yea, but they still leave the door wide open to the most significant problem... spam.

    Kat has done a complete 180. Now she is locking everything in her path.

    This is good but unexpected from her. She is locking the very threads she used to promote.

    Well it doesn't look like the separation between factions is going anywhere, so it's either one faction or we do the USWest / USEast thing.

    Also of importance is the fact that Blizzard hasn't yet decided whether or not they will allow users to create characters from both factions on the same account. If they implement this restriction then people will be forced to pick a faction, as will we... in which case we would go with Alliance since it is dominating the poll. If they don't implement this restriction then I am still inclined to call us an Alliance clan because of the poll results.

    Barring any changes to the game that would call for a repoll, are we OK with being an Alliance clan?

    I am - the Alliance is more better... except that I thought Warcraft 2 and 3 both made it quite clear that the Horde and the Alliance were allies now against the Scourge, and since the Orcs aren't bloodthirsty and stuff now.

    But yea, Alliance. That was an interesting non sequitur...
