Can a feature be added that allows users with, say, 5+ years AND 100+ posts to delete/ban obvious bot accounts?

Not at present.

As it stands, even the rest of the Admins don't have that power. Which is why the most recent one got out of control, as I didn't check in for a day or two. It's far too easily abusable I'm afraid.
There's also legacy logistical problems with phpBB2 - I simply can't "Delete" the user, I must first remove EVERY post (I'm in the middle of culling 150ish now) otherwise deleting the user leaves a hole in the database that causes bigger issues.

In the future, possibly a "report" feature that will automatically mute until checked into or something.
At present, sadly, it's on me.

I was trying to figure out how to volunteer to do that for you. But the board looks so so so much better now. Thank you!

Ugh. I spoke too soon.
