    After seeing the regular discussion thread for Splatoon 2, I'm shocked at how many bots just spammed in it. Something needs to be done about this.

    Yeah, but even then it’s not usually that much; the entire New Posts page was full of 200 threads like that.

    We could go back to requiring the first post to be approved? We removed that as the new game was coming out and a lot of new members were joining.

    That seems like a good idea, if you can get someone to be in charge of it. We could also limit spam by limiting how often any one account can create a thread.
    (Or is that already a thing, just only in the same forum?)

    There are a few options, I'm going to try a few tweaks and if they don't work, will have to go with the approved first post route. I think we likely need to do moderator promotion soon as well if we go that route.
