Post Mod please?
Hi mod. I did not know how else to do this, so delete it after reading if you like. I did not want ti Flag as you will have lots to do anyway, which is the point of this post.

All these spamspamspam posts? Can you not make it so that the first post from new members has to be accepted?
No idea how to do it, but the last 3 or so sites I have joined have done this.

If the poster is not accepted, the post does not appear. Or is it more work for you that way than just cleaning up? I see the one has 14 posts, has he/she been accepted?

Not complaining of course, just trying to help, which usually means I make more work.

It's easy, just have to approve every registration application.

Chris is updating the site, this will reduce the number of spammers getting through.

As I said, not complaining, its easy to ignore them, just sympathising with you

I jokingly made a post the other day that was justifiably removed... but I was wondering exactly what the recent spam posts have been trying to communicate? Until recently they were at least pretending to be selling Nike or something, but ones on here in recent weeks are very confusing.

Yep, there's a suspicious, continuous theme in the 'European' section .... :scratch:

Reading it is ok no? I don't post.

However, despite being on this site for over 10 years in various forms, I've only just realised that you can mark topics read!

I think when folks read them they get a 'click' and that's how they get their money. If we see them and ignore them without reading then they go broke.

I just tend to ignore any new magical names for a while.

Chris could fix it if it was a priority but it aint as we is all too clever like :-)
