i run across 2 new members ,olda and asdad , either selling or passing hidden messages or spam or whatever but it does not seem to relate to computers. i am sure you have run across this before but i just thought i would mention it.

Hi,

Many thanks, I spotted them and chenchen123 as well.

Perhaps we can use this thread to notify admins of spammers spotted, admins can the deal with the spammer and delete the "notify" post in this thread, leaving the thread open for more "notify" posts.

Best regards.

i'm kinda new to posting on forums and couldn't help answering one post. i just like talking about computers and i always learn stuff from reading posts and surprisingly i was annoyed and upset a little when i came across " olly and olly " { they were both online when i posted but left after following me} anyways, i know you guys know your stuff and will handle all properly. have a good day!

Hi.

Yes, spam again, U.g.g foot wear, left girl in the picture was wearing them. Quite a lot of the text is mangles from the bad word filter and his links were too, so they would have not worked for the spammer.

Foe those that cannot see the moderators thread I'm proposing putting new members into moderation where their first few posts (1 or 10) are checked before they are fed into the forum.
Comments on putting new members into a confirmation system please.

I've deleted the "notification" post of a spammer to keep the thread short (as per post #2 above), many thanks.

Sounds like a great idea with the moderated first posts, long as you have someone to approve them in a timely manner (just for legitimate folks wondering why their post isn't showing). I asked Mike about it once before but there isn't a flag .feature in this posting software to just flag the post for review?

There is. To report a post, Click on the "Post Options" .(At the top of every post). Then, click on "Report Post." It will take you to a page where you can a report to a moderator/administrator.

Where ?, "Post options" gives you -
"Post reply, Quote, Edit, Hide, Move, Block IP".
"Moderator tools" gives you -
"Moderated, Options, Lock, Hide, Delete".

OK - I see it now, members get a cut down selection -
"Post, Quote, Report"
Moderators and admins get more options but not including "Report".

Hi admins.

Hope you all had a good good Christmas.
When deleting posts for spamming members will Admins please first block the posters IP address, last option on the "post options" drop down box, then we can get a handle on the range of Ip #'s that the spammers are using and adjust it accordingly.

Many thanks.

Hello, I'm Draven. I too am concerned about these trouble makers here on this forum. I have a passion for computers (typing this on my Macintosh 2 as we speak) I'm glad I'm not alone on this one! - Draveeeeeeeeeeeeeeen
