Hi,

I noticed that there was very little spam protection turned on in the back end of the site so I went in there and turned a few things on that should now be scanning new user's posts for spam. I hope that helps limit how much is showing up. I also cleaned up a few of the spam posts in the new members section.

Cheers,
Sheena

Sheena.....As a new member I see that there appears to be a lot of spam advertising for skin care treatments
Can they be removed as it almost made me not join
As a moderator on another motoring forum I appreciate how hard it is to keep on top of spammers

Did another round of spam cleaning. With the added protections added by Sheena, hopefully we will see a slowing of the Spam.

Do we perhaps need some more active moderators to help clean up the spam?

This would be something that would have to be discussed with the Mods and Admins. Are you, or anyone you know interested in becoming a mod?

Richard.

Yes I could do some moderating - I moderated www.vx220.org.uk for years, in fact I think I'm still a mod on there despite not being an active poster there!

I visit here most days so am able to keep an eye on things.
