You maybe have seen that guys around. What do you think they do for CATS and what traits should they have?

I have seen two, both of them great guys, Fezzik and Ash. Always willing to lend a hand or give advice.

Can't really think of anything else than what Toxic said. I don't think they should have some kind of real upper hand against other players, so the only thing I can think of is a sticker or vehicle part optional reskin.

I know they will be very helpful in protecting the game from cheaters once they start appearing, and that will inevitably happen, hopefully much later.

I wonder what they get...as in KoT the 'Watchers' got a unique outfit, Maybe in CATS they got a unique sticker :/

Let's say the get nothing for their efforts.

Excuse my ignorance to the subject, but are "Mechanics" the equivalent of forum moderators?

Not only, however moderation of forums is performed by some of them.

Haven't seen any but, Maybe Watcher's for CATS?

That's close. How would you describe Watchers for people who don't get a single clue about the subject?

Seen a few around, they provide players with support and ideas. 

Are great people overall and moderator the forums and in-game as well.

They're also fantastic and active members of the community.

These past few days been strangely full of Korean and Chinese spammers, both here and in other forums I've been frequenting.

 

Maybe a system-side restriction on how many posts you can make one after another, or a cool-down period(a minute?) after a post? Maybe an anti-bot captcha after five posts in a span of 30 minutes, or put all three in varying severity in place?

Mechanics can do all of those you mentioned :)

Also difference between mechanic and new mechanic, a new mechanic means recently appointed and if they prove worthy will earn full mechanic status in time.

So you guys are essentially forum moderators? Yay for reviving a thread! How exactly does one become a mechanic? Is one selected, or would one have to apply?

Ew no reviving threads... My worst enemy.

Anyway, you are selected BY other mechanics to BECOME a mechanic.

2) Second rule of being a mechanic, YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT BEING A MECHANIC

3) Third rule ........... i’ll Stop, you get the movie reference.
