    How about some moderators?

    by Ravenlord » Fri Feb 04, 2011 5:00 am

    Man, this spam sucks. I think it's about time that Alison and Andy accept that they just don't have the time to deal with it.

    I think it would be a good idea to anoint one or 2 of our regulars as moderators to help tackle the problem and keep this place clean.

    I'm not a frequent user of the forums so I'm not familiar with how often it gets spammed, but all of this recent spam is ridiculous! I don't remember seeing any of this the other night, then I sign in today and BAM! Craploads of spam threads.

    I suspect that Andy, Allison, Blake and the rest of the crew are currently taking a much needed vacation before moving on to the task of organizing the rest of our next adventure. I'm confident they'll deal with it as soon as they're back/aware of it or, like you said, they'll appoint someone to the task.

    In the meantime, just keep spreading the word that the spammers will go away sooner if ppl just don't click on or reply to their posts. Best bet is just to read the posts you know are legit then hit the "Mark Topics Read" button at the top of each sub-forum.

    *edit* - It appears that all the spam threads from the past 24 hours are from the same user and it seems no one has replied to any of those threads yet so the dickhead known as Wolekiiosacs should hit the road soon.
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Wouldn't it be easier to just let a member start a maximum of 2 threads each 24 hours?

    While Tobbe has a good idea, I think it would be more helpful to have a few extra eyes keeping watch on things around here and dealing with such things when needed.

    I feel like if just 5 or so of the forum regulars could have mod capabilities, we could keep this forum nice and tidy. It could also free up Andy and Allison to focus on more important things, like giving us our damn 2012 lineup already :D

    If they do look for people, I will offer my services as part of the forum police in my spare time.

    It's kind of annoying, but adding a captcha could help prevent a lot of the spam as well.

    captcha to start a new thread wouldn't be unreasonable. Not a bad Idea.

    On the other hand, I think Deb should have to captcha before every one of her posts. I might have a fighting chance to catch up by with her by May or June in that case...

    I nominate Rob for a 3rd moderator! He can do it briefly while he is on here enough anyways.

    is a captcha the thing where you enter/copy some randomly displayed letters/numbers?

    Yup that's it! Some of them are really hard to read so it can get annoying if you had a bad one.

    that's not such a bad idea - but sometimes it's indeed not so easy to read'em
