As you might have noticed, recently we've been having a lot of advertisers registering on our site. They might be either spambot (programs written to register and then post advertising contents in forums automatically) or human, who intentionally register then post advertisements. I'm not sure as to why they do so, but most likely because they receive some sort of income for any successful piece of advertisement (that is, for each time someone clicks on the advertising links that they post, they get some money). We've already had clear rules
about how we are against such advertisings in our forums.
There seem to be two types of advertisers registering in our forums recently. The first type make new topics where they post obvious advertising contents, those are very easy to recognize and deal with. The second type post in existing topics with on-topic contents, however the way they word their sentences will be strange and completely unlike us normal internet users (ex. too polite, saying random things, etc.) And this second type always have a link (and only a link) in their signature that leads to a profitable website (ex. sites selling memory cards, human translation service sites, etc.)
Hence, if you spot any advertiser of either type, please make a post in this topic with a link to either the advertiser's post or profile. Then the board staff will take care of them as soon as possible.
Of course, this topic can also be used to report advertisers and spammers who write meaningless or advertising contents into our board's Wiki (some of them even register 10 new accounts at once without doing anything else, wasting some of our server capacity). You can also use it to report any sort of normal spammers in the forums too. With everyone's support, we'll be able to keep our forums well-organized and clean of advertisements.
