Evidence, muahahaha. Now we can nab 'em :D Actually, I looked at one and it wasn't A Bug's Life, but I wasn't sure if they were a spammer or not, so who knows :D

It'd be funny if a spammer posted on this thread. 8D

I have no idea how that got into my head. I must be tired.

The recent spammer probleam is annoying. It seem's msot of the new members are spammers. They post on every thread. Wish they would go away.

All I can do at this point is apologize. We're well aware of the increase of spambots, and it's just as frustrating to us as it is to you guys - even more so for us, since we're the ones having to chase them down and clean up after them all the time. :P I've presented an idea to help eliminate their presence on the boards to Phileas, but he hasn't responded to me in regards to that matter yet.

We simply ask that you as members are patient with us, as we can only do so much to control the spambots at this time.

Thanks for the support guys. We know spammers are a bigger problem to Pixar Planet now than it has been in the last few years. But we'll find a way.

Those Spambots have been pretty irritating as of late. I know the mods are trying the best they can but I hope something can be worked out soon.

Same here Ballboi. The mods are doing a fine job reporting them, but it's hard being the only force to ban them. We'll have a better solution in due time.

I don't know how it all works. From what I remember, signing up on to Pixar Planet before the forum revamp was more complicated, but it prevented a lot of spammers from coming in. now, it's easier for members to sign up, but that also means easier for spammers to register as well.

Thanks. What you can do is if you see any spam, or think someone might be a spammer, report it to the mods, and we'll handle it.
