Seems like one out of three posts is spam!

Postby rickf » August 7th, 2011, 7:33 pm

Is our spam blocker in need of updating? Just about one in three is spam anymore.

I'd suggest approving accounts before giving the privilage of posting, a simple background check by looking up the email and the problem would be eliminated completely. Thats what we do on our board and have zero issues with spammers, on top of that we only allow people with paying IP's, meaning no yahoo and gmail crap, thats where most of the issues come from. We have approx. 25-50 people signing up daily, it's alot of work but it cuts out all the riff raff.

Actually first post approval is easier. Only the mods and admins see the spam. Couple of clicks and it's banned and gone. :mrgreen:

I'm not seeing all this spam you keep complaining about Rick, I've been banning one or two people a day for spamming. I think our mods have done an excellent job of keeping the forums clean. Between the mods and myself spam doesn't last on here very long. Post approval would really slow down the board and with such a low level of spam I don't really want to do that. You're welcome to become a mod if you would like to join the spam battle too!

If you need help with moderating I will help. I have a real job but I do spend a lot of time here.

Moose,

First post approval won't slow down the board. It only effect the first post of any NEW member. After you approve thier first post they are free to post away. I use it to good effect on the mg42 board. I have had no complaints of spam from the members.


Any mod can approve a post or leave it for someone to delete and ban.

On second thought- a moderator can't be banned, no?
What if the other G finds out he is a moderator? and SS?
Then we really would be an outlaw forum.
So I still vote yes

Moose I mentioned to you previously as you use the same software for my site, that all you need to do is require each new member to answer a question like, 'What military vehicles interest you?'
Have the reply sent to all moderators, then anyone one of them can approve and the new member is live if the answer is good.
This is so simple.
If you need someone to help let me know, I work with one of the creators of the software.
If you need someone on european time to moderate, ask me.
BUT please make RickF a moderator. It is a good thing

Thanks for the vote Top, I just got home from the surgery center. Got 6 epidurals in the back. Right now I have little use of my legs, I hope that passes. I was told that is a fairly common side effect. I am hoping these shots keep me in the game a while longer.
