This one seems kinda fishy. Just a lot of spam-ish posts and smilies that don't seem to go together. Might be a spambot, but I'm not sure.

Got the one Archer reported.

Removed the link from the Jeelius one. We'll see what happens.

The name is dodgy. memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=61783 And it is apparently 91 years. Very suspious.

He hasn't been on since June 2010, so he doesn't seem harmful. Will watch him just in case, though.

Not cool, mohsin. I thought we were friends, but I guess you were just a Spamdroid.

I think this might be a spambot.

Spambot that tries to disguise itself as a real user:
http://forums.uesp.net/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=75336

Its post here is actually a fragment of this earlier post by another user:
RomeoDragonface wrote:
I've just recently encountered a possibly game-breaking bug that may or may not be worse than it is, or appears to be at the moment. This is not an uncommon issue and I did find several topics around the net in regard to it, but no solutions, at least as far as I can tell.

So, what's the matter? After I return from completing a quest, I talk to the quest giver and an inventory screen appears in which I can receive the reward for the related quest (the thieves guild sometimes gives me much less gold than what they promised despite the success), but when I go to exit via the red button on the screen or with the escape key, the game freezes.

This does not seem to be the case with all quests, and constantly reloading my game does not help with the ones in which this issue is encountered while they're still in progress. This has also occurred with the Fighter's Guild (possibly in another town.)

I had just recently defragmentated my hard drive, and only after had the freezing occurred. My game hasn't had a freeze in a long while, and nothing like this with the quests and all.

First, it happened in a dungeon at random (the last dungeon I visited), and then with the whole issue of not being able to exit the inventory screen upon receiving the reward (even if I don't take it.) The Daggerfall I am using is from a link in the Files section here on the UESPWiki, from the figure 'AncestorGhost' or someone of a similar alias.

I will try a few things different here and there, like running daggerfall in an older windows mode, defragmenting my hardrive once again, and perhaps backing up my saves and re-installing it... I think there has been an update since, but I do not think that this issue has been patched in it or whatever.

On top of this, I understand that my personal experience with this bug written here is scant on detail - I will review the problem when I am done editing the videos and I can perhaps show someone them when they are uploaded on Youtube so that they can have a look for themselves.

In the end, while it is annoying to spend time doing a quest for nothing, and recording it for public eye, I can only hope that it only affects Guild quests and the like and not Main Quests, though I have heard this has occurred for them as well...

One thing I know I will look out for when editing is whether or not this bug affects only a specific range of quests (e.g. CompUSA Edition Quests.)
I will also empty my wagon a little more.

I was unable to, or failed to inspect Dosbox itself when the problem occurred; when I alt-tabbed out of the frozen screen, turning Daggerfall into a box on my desktop. Perhaps, if there may be such of the following, the information displayed thence can be of use?

I have marked the paragraph that was stolen by the bot in boldface.

Maybe? Just joined yesterday, and there's a lot of nonsense in three of those five posts. Or it could just be a very strange person... *shrug*

I am unsure of this one....

I think it may just be a very odd person. I'ma leave it for now, but keep an eye on it.

Report them again if anything ever more weird shows up. *frumple*

Sorry about those posts, I didn't mean to spam. I was trying to talk like a certain character from one of my favorite games. I guess there aren't any Star Control II players on here who would get it anyway.

No problem, Orz! I haven't played that game, but I'm sure somebody must have before...right? :S

Heh, sorry Orz. The posts just looked a little fishy. Glad they decided to let it slide because they weren't sure, either. :)
