I think Magicbox needs to shut down registrations for awhile.

This bot shit is getting out of hand. Could probably use an extra mod or two to clean all this shit up.

We're gamers. We've been training for this fight our whole lives.

What's the point on doing an attack like this to the forums? Is it practice to bring down a website?

What's the point? We don't bother anyone, we've always pretty much just existed in our own little corner of the internet.

I doubt they are particularly aiming at this website. I am guessing it's a wider net they are casting and seeing what happens.

The site needs new, active moderators to ban and manage these things. If the forum isn't curated then it'll just die....if it hasn't already.

Yeah, I come to this site like once a year (more so now that the MB discord links to posts here, but still not a lot).

I think Nem would be the perfect mod, he's been here forever and seems to be active.

Other mods I recommend:

Spider-Prime
Sinful Sam


heck anyone who's been around since the beginning and is still active here and hasn't been an ass in the last few years are good candidates. I can't mod people so I'm just throwing this out to Admin.

I don't understand bots. Do they REALLY think internet forums are the best place to somehow extract money from users? I mean I could kind of understand a few years ago but most people are wary of clicking on random porn links or whathaveyou. Perhaps I am giving society too much credit.
