Well, no system is perfect. How about having a script that periodically deletes/hides topic/posts flagged as spam by trusted members (I volunteer!)?

Then you could have a user flag another user's post because of a personal reason and it would be blocked. A north American mod or 2 would be useful to patrol the forum while the gang in Korea is asleep at night.
Considering the small staff, I really think they do a great job of everything on the forum.

There have been an unusual number of spam posts recently. I think administration should consider mad_ady's offer to police the forum in Korea's off hours and grant him moderator rights if he's still willing.
A mod on this hemisphere would be of benefit not only to administration but the whole Odroid community and Ady has been a valued member for 5 years closing in on 10,000 posts.

just my $.02 .................

Thank you! I hereby pledge to respect and protect the Odroid community and may my powers be revoked should I abuse them!

In all seriousness, though - we should agree on a code of conduct and the actions I should take. Do accounts with a few posts that start adding obvious spam links get banned or deleted?

When I saw a spam link in a post or signature, I did ban their id and email first.
And then, delete the ID and all the posts.

I mod on another forum, since we're all in different cities we use a "staff only" section that regular users can't see to document stuff so the whole staff can see what's happening at a glance, I'm assuming it's in Korean on this forum.

This is standard operating procedure, I admin one forum and moderate another and on both we have a section for staff.

You were getting at mad_ady discussing potential future actions in private I'm guessing?

Nope, no interaction off the public forum ever. I just hate spam posts.
And I've no aspirations here as my time is already too tightly stretched.
For the record, had you offered instead I would have suggested you.
