Don't Respond to Bot Threads

Trouble BrewingTrouble Brewing Salty about UltraJoined: Posts: 4,680 mod
For those that don't know, responding to bot threads is against the rules here at SRK. Why? It makes the bot scripts believe the forum is very popular and thus sends more spam our way. For whatever reason, people have started doing this again, so this is your warning.

If you want to help with the bot problem, simply hit the "report" link at the bottom left of the post. A mod will deal with it ASAP.

Thank you for your help.

    Just to clarify, then: Am I correct in understanding that the Report function is now preferred to the (still sticked) GD bot reporting thread??

    As far as I know, reporting is the way to go now. If you use the report function, all the mods are notified regardless of whether they are paying attention to that thread or not.

    I'll mention to the powers that be that the bot thread in GD probably isn't needed anymore.

    Just flag the bot for spam since that should still send the same alert to mods once it has enough flags.

    That, or PM your friendly neighborhood mod.
