Dear Jim or other mods,
I've found that a user just registered a nickname that's almost the same as mine (jameschen071). I really don't know what his intentions are but it's not my account for sure, and it might cause confusion among other users that we're the same person or something...

please do something about this, there must be a rule against this, right? ...I don't think any good would come out of him using an account name that's almost identical to mine. Thanks for the hard work as always, it's much appreciated.

User profile
His first post

*Oh and unrelated but how could you also direct me to a place where I can find out about the requirements of opening a vendors thread? I am asking on behalf of a site sponsor...but his English isn't too great so he was wondering if I could find out for him. Cheers.

I took care of the multiple troll account.
Are you looking for info on a vendor forum like the one's located here?

Yup, that's exactly what he wants to set up... but I can't seem to find any info regarding the process in which this could be done...

Hey Jim, it seems that the problem is getting quite out of hand over at the mini multirotor forums. They are flooding the forum with continuous, unhelpful comments that are only there to "bump" the thread for more publicity. Some are clones of other accounts such as fpvguy001 (original:fpvguy) and mikefromus01(mikefromgermany). Others are just spam accounts:Marktuwin and Massimoflying. I think those are all of the accounts that we have confirmed to be spam for now. Will notify if there are others... It's making it very hard for people to find information on certain quads when there are these spammers bumping the threads. Thanks for the hard work sir!
