    Mate, people were complaining that the forum was turning to shit not that long after it started.


    Note - the current spam tidal wave is truly shit.

    I have to confess, I donít spend anywhere near the time I used to here, and Iíve been a regular on Eurogamer since it started.

    I spend more time on another UK forum now, but havenít really found a ďnew homeĒ yet.

    This place is getting to the stage where it isnít worth visiting anymore :(

    I agree. Iíve even resorted to typing ďvideo games forum ukĒ into search engines and nothing of interest has really come up.

    Humph.

    Do you mean the spam, or the number of threads about the spam?

    Is it really that difficult to stop spammers signing up and releasing the spam?

    Can we not have a thing where everyone that signs up gets asked if they are a spam and if they are they're asked if they mind perhaps not signing up instead?

    Technically that means I owe you a girlfriend, and, having weighed up the pros and cons, you arenít getting mine!

    Maybe it would help if we posted in the fp comments each time weíre getting spammed?

    You could just dress up in some frilly underwear and pretend to be his gf for a night. Fall on that pork sword so to speak.

    It needs fixing whatever sign-up process there is.

    And fixing that I cannot access my profile page due to square brackets in my username :(
