Yeah. Its also an example of how old I am. I saw his posts and dismissed them as spam...then had to do a search to prove to myself that these weren't just some...obscure Anime or video game characters that I wasn't aware of. That happened to me before...


I honestly think they should count as spam. I just made a new post and it got knocked off the new page, so now people may not see it unless they look on the remote's page. Over an hour of work and it gets knocked because someone decided they wanted to make a lot of one sentence posts, if there was no limit to the newest pages that would be fine, but this is not the case. I made a post in general discussion also venting my frustration.

Also this is my new interactive post that got knocked off.

That does suck. They'll get bored soon enough. But what makes Slimey weird is that they're consistent. This is not the first time they've done this.

First odd, do you have any posts that are spam? That will help deal with it.

And I'm sorry that the interactive story site isn't quite all it should be. Web tech is really not me field (which I think should be obvious at this point) so I'm struggling to try and add some useful features. One thing I'm going to see about doing is finding a way to throttle posting a bit, though not sure how much that will help fix the problem.

Because I was quick to delete the linked post so the link ended up going to the top of the thread. Thanks for the question though, perfectly reasonable one to ask.

The posts by botcomics probably should go into Sales Floor and are a little over the top. If they're here just to advertise ...
