Do we even care about spammers at this point?

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

At times there is more advert spam in some forums than posts.

This one here being a prime example.

Imagine being a potential new member seeing this shit? Just embarressing. Its so easy to remove but the mods choose to leave it there for some reason.

Perhaps there is a reason why it is going unchecked? It would be good to get a response from the management.

What do you think about the idea of changing the name of the Aussie forum - see new thread just below here.

You have no idea how much there is. We remove shot tonnes, but more pops right back up. It's impossible. Jay is meant to be finding a permanent solution but there are delays.

I am working on it, but this year new techniques were created that allows them to bypass typical captchas. Most forums are struggling. I've just tried something new, but with the exception of going to all new members are automatically moderated (requires a mod/admin to accept the registrations individually), there might not be many options.
