I'd rather they solve the spammer problem rather than closing boards.

This has been brought up so many times. It's clear that their priority is not on the forums. I wouldn't be surprised if one day, soon, the forums would just be gone with no warning. Same with the YouTubers board. Just close it and ban any new user who posts a video without any discussion. That whole board is spam-ridden.

@SOedipus: @Willy105: @MonsieurX: Sports Bar, I did mention this to GS Staff that the board is dead and anyone wants to talk about sports can make a thread in OT. I can't say about mobile connection as I don't like mobile gaming but, I think @musicalmac can explain it more if that place is still active or not.

Still, please keep YouTubers/Streamers Unite board cause its more of a safe heaven place for spammers who are future YouTubers wannabe, and let's keep it that way for those who like it over there.

Ehh. The reason why I say that is because that board is literally spam-ridden. If you look at the posts most of the TCs have very few total posts. They post their shit then leave. In the first page alone there's like 5 threads with more than one poster. I agree with @Willy105, Gamespot needs to deal with the spam. Two birds with one stone?
