LOL, I think only mods and admins have a realistic chance of getting that broom.

*Ahem*

All depends who sees the spam (or bad post) first. There is no mod queue.

Also, you only get the broom from the main pages. Not the forum.

Many forums have a system that monitors the first posts from new members, often the 10 first posts. If there is a link in the posts or in the signature, the posts won't go through and they end up in a mod queue.
I've never seen spam from new members/bots here so I thought Psy had implemented that line of defense.

The broom achievement is only for the main pages?! Wtf, I didn't know anything happened on the main page.
TreeFitty
Between the staff preventing some spam, and the members reporting ones that do get through, we keep this place pretty clean.
demon
You guys do a good job keeping out the spam then. smile.gif

What sort of bad things happens on the main page? There's no discussion there. Spambots posting links and such?

TreeFitty
Had a few spam comments on the regular pages. They'll always find a way to get their links out there.

Pretty sure my broom came from the forum.
TreeFitty
I would have gotten it a while ago then.

Strange. I reported a bad post recently that was deleted by someone. I didn't get a broom for it, not even the stick. So it's true what Fitty just said.

Flaming/Trolling
Flaming (insulting other users) or trolling (provoking other users into insulting you) is not tolerated anywhere on the board apart from the Rants and Raves forum. Flaming outside of R+R will result in the post(s) being deleted and the members involved being punished accordingly.

I get the impression that at least this rule is for show only, everywhere on the forum. I don't know if it can be violated. mellow.gif

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Hang on I don't have the broom! WTF?

If you remove my quote you're a murderer!

I'm a murderer either way.

Who were you talking to? No one had talked about it on the last two pages...

I don't know who it is, I can't remember seeing him.

I just realize what happened. You had it, but that achievement can be revoked if someone reports something you have posted. ph34r.gif

Come on it doesn't hurt to share a little secrets. Shouldn't I let him know it means that the PMS is over? blush.gif

I think only Psy can actually revoke them if you get one.

Shhh I was just trolling.
TreeFitty
I know, but it was something I felt like sharing for common knowledge of all.

While we're at it, I reported two incidents of spam/flaming on the main pages but I didn't get the broom. It was on my profile but I guess that does not count as "on the main site", although that's where our profiles are.
TreeFitty
I tried deleting them after it happened but got an error. One of the Admins must have taken care of it.

Piefail!
That would be a good Achievement tongue.gif

Uh... What?

Oh, I get it, now.
