Only You Can Prevent Forum Spam

With the recent uptick in spamming on Orp, it was decided that in order to remind people of the importance of keeping an eye out for the foul advertisements, we needed a mascot. A SpamBot mascot. Team Admin set a variety of net traps and before long we had captured one. Now we are ready to debut our new inclusion to the forum safety team, after weeks of painful surgery to remove its claws, fangs and ... what the hell is that thing? Some kind of tentacle stinger? Ugh.

I present you with tuvw135! He is here to let you know that it is important for each-and-every person to stay vigilant to the presence of spam and alert the authorities when it is found. Only You Can Prevent Forum Spam.

What's that tuvw135? You want to say something to the good people?

Haha! That's right tuvw135

Decorating and neutering spambots is just more fun than banning them. It's like real life pokemon.

Erm, is tuvw135 a real spambot? If so, please tell me you made sure he can't log in again to post more spam!

Yes it is real, and it can't spam anymore. That's what the weeks of surgery were for.

Will tuvw135 be signing autographs? He'll need a signature, at least. And will he be dancing (textually) during off-time?

This is an exciting development!

There's only one logical option for that signature: the Monty Python spam scene

Not necessarily, he might also eat ham and jam and spam-a-lot.

So it ended up looking something like this:



Am I right?

Yup. It's a precursor to me bringing back 7DS.

Great. Does that mean I have to make a pic for you too?
