What is VSTF? Well we kind of got inspired by Wikia for the idea (thanks dudes). It stands for Volunteer Spam Task Force. This is a group of forumers who clean up the spam on this forum and ban the spammers (the black magic "find your lover, totally not a scam!" bots).
Like V in VSTF implies, this is strictly a voluntary role. Whether you apply or not, it's up to you (though whether you're accepted or not, its up to the mod/admin team).
What are the requirements for this role? - Have been around this forum for a while (in other words, your forum account wasnt born yesterday) - A decent amount of quality posts (so we know you are trustworthy) - Active on this forum on a daily basis (whats the purpose of joining the VSTF if you're only active once a week?)
What the VSTF isn't and should not do - The VSTF are not moderators or admins. Leave that to the friendly purple and orange names floating on this forum - Delete threads/ban members that are not spambots (if you're not sure, use the report button and tell us why you're not sure)
Note: The mod and admin team check the security logs several times throughout the day. Abuse of power will get you kicked off the VSTF and at least one forum strike.
Apply with the following information: - Username on this forum - How long have you been around here? - What's your time zone and when are you active on this forum

BTW, there is another spammer who is the same guy you banned. He created another account and is advertising his vodoo magic thing. Better ban him quick, I see him creating the threads now.

OK, looking at the active thread list this morning I have to volunteer.
Username is 'slowreflexes'. I've been on this forum from about when it started, Sept 2016. I'm in Central U.S. time zone. I stop in at all times of day, but tend to be most active mornings and late evenings.
Count me in. Frunobulax, joined last December, european time zone but forum activity differs (sometimes during the day, sometimes in the evening).
6pack is easily the best way to enjoy War Robots nowadays. Balanced games & very good players. Come join our league or fight nights at Discord discord.gg/vEup3h
If you have some older bots like the Lance, Fury, Carnage, Galahad or Rhino at level 6 or below, chances are that you can equip a very good 6pack hangar. Otherwise just grab a Tulu/Pin or Punisher Griffin, a Punisher/Thunder Leo or Natasha. Virtually no time or silver required. Check out the legal gear at discord.gg/ry6V5z
RedFoxJI Been mostly lurking since December '16 with the occasional post. That make me trustworthy enough? I usually check the boards during the weekday at various times during the day. I'm in the US central time zone.
And I agree, whatever ya do please do it soon as General is a mess. I would love the ability to throw the book at these damn spam-bots sullying our forums.
