There's been a problem recently with private message spam. The messages will say that it's from an admin, and then it will ask you to click a link to download something.
These spam messages are not from admins. Do NOT click on the links or download anything they ask you to.
If the Forum staff has something they need to communicate to you, they will either PM you directly from their own account, which credits them as being a member of the staff, OR we will announce it here.
We will NEVER tell you that you must download something from an outside, unfamiliar source.
