View Full Version : Forum spam
02-16-2014, 05:52 AM
Just a quick announcement - because of a recent influx of spam on the forum, we're temporarily putting all new posts into a moderation queue for manual approval. So there will be a short delay between when you make a new post, and when it appears on the site.
This is only temporary until we can come up with a better, more permanent anti-spam solution.

THANK YOU. Perhaps you could disable culprit accounts for a set period of time that gets progressively longer with repeat offenses.

This has really become an issue to anyone wanting to use the forum.
I'd like to see the system changed so that if you have solved 1 or more puzzles and have no prior offenses, then your post goes through automatically. Posts from new users could still be moderated (or even just thrown out).

I agree, a very good idea.
