    It just means that the Mods are not keeping tabs on the forums as much as they are supposed to I do understand that we all have real lives but when ur a moderator your expected to keep up the law :)

    Well, in order to do anything - you need to report it immediately so we can take action. You need to email it or forward it to me, or post the spammers username so we can take action.

    Just posting a random thread saying you got spammed does nothing to help us or anyone else that is getting spammed. No, I don't have time to read every single thread posted. :lol:

    Again, if when it happens, PM it to a Mod or Admin and it will be handled swiftly. Just posting a thread with no info leaves us pretty much helpless.

    this was an old thred and it has not happened in a while. i had pushed that little red triangle but a week later it was still there, so i though we needed to do somthing, but since its not happened in a long time, then i guess there is no need to worry :cool:

    It is hard for the mod to catch everything as this forum is getting a lot of traffic.

    I have been seeing a lot of spam and porn posts lately. I have been using the "Report Post" icon on all the ones I see. They do disappear as Mods can get to them.

    Kudos to them trying to keep things under control. :yaya:

    One thing the forum might want to change is when people sign up they have to enter a valid email in which the new member has to click a link to confirm there membership. Might eliminate the spam since it would be harder for these douchebags to sign up and then start posting this spam. It's out of control and something need to happen.

    All the other forums i belong to had this process.

    I like that idea, causes more trouble than its worth for spammers.

    I also agree with AZSCTACO's proposal. Perhaps a small probationary period of a couple of days to one week before a new member is allowed to post would curb the rash of spam within the forums as well.

    I'm working on trying to get something setup to keep spammers from being able to register. This spam crap has been getting out of hand lately and hopefully we can get this worked out soon so everyone can enjoy the forum more. Until then, we'll be doing our best to rid of spam posts as quickly as possible.

    On my site, if they try to post a link or certain key words and have under 10 posts.

    Their posts will be sent to the Moderation Queue. And not be seen by users.
