Thread: Spam screening?
03-08-2012, 11:19 AM #1
This is just an idea on cutting down on spam and time wasters. I recently joined another forum, was a reptile one. They have a system where new users will have their first 5 posts screened by mods before they go live onto the forum. So it would stop spammers from hitting straight onto the forum. I know this would add to the mod teams duties but was just an idea.My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

I think that is a very good idea. Would nip scammers in the bud before they flood the forum.

I like that idea. Also, I suggest that user have to wait 25 posts til having contact info in their posts. That may keep the robots from posting their phone # and other contact info.American League Champions! TIGERS!

I would suggest sending these suggestions to our site admin (William) as he is will make the call on any changes to the forum or the forum rulesIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

No need I have read this thread. I am by principle against everything that makes it harder for new members to join and post. It is hard to draw the line between prevent spamming and making the forum less accesible. I will none the less think about before making a decision.Do as I say. Not as I do.
