  • SPAM: Addressing the issue

    All,

    Over the past few months, SPAM has become an increasing issue here on the forums. Currently, several members have been very helpful in reporting it to me, so that I can delete it, ban the user and them remove it from our twitter feed (OTMFAQ_Posts).

    I'm going to implement a couple of changes soon to address the issue:
    • Install a couple of mods that will automatically block known SPAM email addresses, user IDs and IP addresses from joining the forums. I will be able to manually approve anyone tagged, so h
    • Install a modification that allows for the rating of posts (number of stars) and the reporting of SPAM posts.
    • Work with the community to designate additional moderators.

    Over the last 3 years, this site has grown tremendously. I'm very happy with the success -- though it also means that we could use additional people to help manage the forums.

    I'd like these moderators to be active members of the community. So - if you're interested in helping out, please contact me.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    All,

    I just deleted over 10 pornographic posts that came in over the last few minutes. The offending user has been banned, but if I have missed anything, please let me know ASAP.

    Thanks,
    --Chris
