My god the spam threads here are annoying.
How bout this:
Next to the 'Reply with quote' link next to the original post, every advantage member gets a little "Is this Spam?" button.
Once 5 different advantage members have marked the topic as spam, it automatically becomes locked, is removed from the forum thread listing thingamajig and a mod or mods are alerted to it.
If it is spam, they can delete it, if its not, they can reinstate it, and it pops back to the top of the forum listing thingamajig.
At the very least it will end the threads we have that are started by spam that get turned into sideshows where everyone has their say. I do like those ones, they can be funny, but when there is cool stuff like tut's, games, cool links to videos or people asking for help, those spam threads can push them down the list out of sight.
Mods can't always be around, remember just a couple weeks back with the dirty story spam we had?
And if cheeky members decide to mark random threads as spam for a joke, simply take the button away from them.
So my suggestion is this : Free SPAMHAMMERS for ALL!!!
