Delete all of the data and start over, but this time give an avatar and custom title no matter how many posts you have, and ban the spammers for a week or two, even though the spam will be less because everyone knows that everyone only spams for posts.

Giving everyone a custom title and avatar the second they begun to post would completely kill the server.

Unixmad's servers are fine. I just think giving avatars right off the bat is a bad idea.

JR is right...this idea is perfect. We already let newbies have signatures, so why not the rest of the bull hockey too?

why not just get rid of custom avaters and have a few differant ones from differant Graal heads and bomys and stuff.

and have the custom titles for everyone therefore no spam and no extra lag/server cloging

Correct, there is no message board that is spam free/insult free.

Does spam really bother you that much? Can't you just not read it.

People with 1000+ posts still spam, what are they waiting for? A magical staff position at 5000 or something? Free accounts at 10000?

No, but Stefan did say you get a free Graal 2001 account if you manage to open 100 graal instances concurrently. ;)
