If that may help you, lock down the Welcome section until things get back to normal (unless you have a better idea).

While i agree it's a good idea, what if these spammers start moving into other parts of the forums.

A spambot is a bot trying to pass on as a real user and often try to use forums as advertisements for their websites. (Usually the links are broken, though.) They are incredibly easy to spot with their repetitive messages and horrid Engrish. (I bet their leader doesn't speak English and probably uses a pirated translator software) Here's a few examples of bots trying to make us suffer a Bad Future where we drown in spambots:

http://www.sonic-xtreme.com/forums//vie … php?id=662
http://www.sonic-xtreme.com/forums//vie … php?id=661

There's still a lot more in the Welcome subforum, though.

''true fan of Sonic'', here's the description of what a ''TRUE FAN'' is (according to Sega Forum Wiki):

True Sonic Fans (or Sonic Experts) are fans of Sonic who know what makes Sonic a good franchise, what is wrong with the current games and how to make them good again...

-Correction-
'I'm a true Sonic fan' is an ego boosting term used by a frustrated power-hungry fanboy in an attempt to try and make himself look more important than the other fanboy he's currently arguing with. Many claim to be true Sonic fans, except they're only ever fans of a specific era of Sonic games, supporting character, or they are merely just a shipper. And insist believe that their favourite games/character/couple are the best ever and more people should support and respect them.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, stop trying to ask those spambot to leave, since they aren't real people (spambot is more or less like a false account generator) you're not gonna affect them.

I am not those freakin squealies or those stupid fake sonic fans I know every sonic game by the book and also I say sonic is my favorite character  and I'm not like mariotehplummer or that one guy who says that's his character and it's a red sonic I'm not those guys I'm a sonic fan by heart and not those fanboys who says sonic colors suck I'm not those people so Im was gonna stop going here I'm not a troll I came here to support project axsx. And if people make arguments because of me maybe i should stop coming here. Also I'm a Archie sonic comic fan and most fanboys hate it.
