    Default Who receives the comment form?

    I sent a question via the "Contact Us" page, and I was wondering if anyone of this forum is the person that is on the receiving end of that page.

    I would think it would be JavaForums, but that's only a guess.

    I was asking this because I was applying for a moderator job. The spam is a major pita, and since I am online a lot, I thought I could contribute to the forum by killing spam. Does anyone of the current mods know where to apply?

    I'm a mod, and I've noticed the increase in spam lately too. There isn't a place to apply to be a moderator. The best way to be promoted to moderator is to keep answering questions and to report spam when you see it. Every once in a while the administrator will ask for names to consider for promotion, and I'll put your name in next time it comes up. We've also been talking about stricter measures to prevent spam, so hopefully the problem goes away soon.

    Yep, exactly. Also, you should know that being a moderator isn't a job- we aren't paid or anything; we're all just doing this in our spare time for the fun of helping people out. I doubt even the administrator makes much money from the site.

    Oh, reporting all the spam I run into will be difficult: "This forum requires that you wait 60 seconds between reporting posts. Please try again in 36 seconds.".
    When I see a spam wave going by in the "What's new" section, I assume a mod picks that up. The occasional spam post that snuck in there somewhere will be reported.

    Cool. I just didn't want anybody to get their hopes up about making money from killing spam. It's a thankless job! haha

    Hm, I didn't know about the limit on reporting posts; that's a bit annoying. Fortunately, many of the spam posts are made by the same account, so banning one account takes care of a bunch of the posts at one time, so you don't have to report every spam post if they're made by the same person. That is, until another spammer registers a different account, ugh!
