I'm not entirely sure but I think there is a "nuke spam" button on the topics I start myself or something...is it possible to have that button on all topics and replies regardless of the author? Or do you need to be a moderator to have this? Can those that have > x amount of posts be an automatic "spam nuker" or something?

1 sau sau, is that like 1 sau squared or is it 2 sau? Can 2 sau be defined as sheep?? (is sau the same in swedish as in norwegian..?)

sau sau is sau times sau.

Now that you mentioned the secret password sheep, I think Paul Randal will enter this conversation shortly, wearing his kilt...

10,000 posts gets you Nuke button. But Nuke only nukes a whole thread, so no use for spammers that post on an existing thread. Making all 10,000 posters into moderators has been raised before.

I've mentioned a number of times before that a system of reporting spam that requires the user to go find the Spam thread and cut and paste a link relies on peoples good nature and wears thin pretty quickly.

But that, and other modernising features, don't get much air time. Its a big job to change ... but there are plenty of features in modern forums that would make the site far more enjoyable for me. A "Report this" button is one of them

And 10k posts for the nuke button...hm...Ive been a member since september 2004. 2000 posts in 6 years is 3 years per 1000 posts. 8000 posts missing so thats 8 x 3 = 21 years until I become a spam nuker

Too open to abuse. Need to have some "quality metric" for Reporters. 3 such votes from 10K+ posters yes!

think the number should be lower. Else why would a 10K+ poster click the vote when he/she can nuke it.

This will only encourage the spammers to build bots that spew 10,000 messages. :0
