    I don't think this is the minecraft username, just a forum account created for spam. Any way to ban an IP?

    Can't we just ignore him and delete his comments?
    I know, it is as annoying as fuck that random useless coments pop up, but hey deleting and ignoring aren't hard, and banning the IP might not stop the fucker, there are many ways to change your IP AFAIK. Lets just avoid feading this troll ok?
    Maybe he will donate :).

    That'd be nice, @Mishael1 , but he's posted multiple times, and I'm getting sick of deleting his spam. The principle of the thing is what's at stake here, in my opinion. This is not a place for scammers and spammers, this is a community of people who support each other. We frequently look at each other's work, play, and creations on this site, and posts like what this person is doing take advantage of that attitude, and if someone is either careless or ignorant (and clicks a link that they have in their post) may inadvertently sign themselves up for spam mail, or worse, get a virus.

    People like this are destructive and annoying, as destructive and annoying as griefers, and possibly even more so, thanks the possibility of targeting a player's personal information and/or hardware.

    @Davidslain, I've told you this once before, you don't have to ask everyone's permission to these things. We trust your judgement. Bansplatter the forum account, and if you're really worried, send the account-holder a brief explanatory mail.

    There is no higher authority on this. We are all the higher authority, as a community. Don't let bureaucracy slow down the hammer of justice =p

    @Glunnator @moomoohk I think perhaps I haven't articulated correctly- I don't know how to ban a forum account. On top of that, I was wondering if it was a possibility to block the IP, to avoid further instances of spam from this address.

    I know you don't (since I don't lol). That was a nudge at @Windy or @Thijn .

    I've given the dashboard a look-see and found an option to reset his password. I've given that an experimental go, as it will send an email about it. If there's a person behind that account, they might return, though I doubt it, and bots having hacked it might hopefully be cut off for now.
    If he returns in spam-bot form and you still can't find out where to give him the ban-boot, give me a whistle and I'll go all gangsta on 'im.

    P.S., It's not necessary to delete individual spam-posts. It is common practice to delete bots' accounts along with all their posts in one click of a button.

    lol moomoo, nice one :P

    He's banned anyways.
    Note to others: To ban someone, go to the dashboard, go to Users and search the user. Then plonk edit and tick the Banned checkbox (It's around the third thing you see from the top).

    Time wasted on spam bots intentional or unintentional, is really unnecessary imo.

    If the user isn't a spam bot (highly unlikely), they can contact the webmaster using a link at the bottom of this forum.

    You wouldn't grant me even this harmless whim?
    You make me sad.
