I don't mind volunteering as a mod if you want another bod, unless of course someone else particularly wants to step up to the plate.

I don't tend to make many posts these days but have been on the forum a long time and I administer another board so am around most days to try and keep a tab on things.

Hi Roy

I have added you as a mod for the forums, we do have a couple of people in the team here who scan the forum each day for scam and other postings, but they cant watch it "out of hours" or even all the time. If any one else you like to be a mod, please let me know.

Thanks


I will come forward as well as a mod if needed.

The issue is not so much in deleting the posts but getting rid of the user very very quickly which the mods can't do (or couldn't) . This leaves the spammer plenty of time to go on spamming until Admin delete them.

I see the SPAM invader from Cameroon, is flooding the board advertising his fake documents and drive everybody crazy.

He tried the same on my board but he has been unlucky .... as my alert system ....... warned me and before he finished posting his second spam...... he was stopped by the Moderator...... me!

To solve the problem is very easy:

I don't think this board has a large number of New members registering every day .... therefore you should switch Registration from automatic to "Approved and Activate" the new account by the Moderator. It will take 1-2 minutes for the moderator to check the new account on the "Stop Forum Spam" site and make a decision.

http://www.stopforumspam.com/

The moderator who is around most of the time... can subscribe to all forums.... and automatically receive an email, whenever a new post is made. That way he does not have to be logged on the board all the time.

Additionally on my board I have added a modification that stops all the automatic Registrations by bots.

PS: Of course I don't know if the software of this board permit these functions.......

another jerk trying to sell landrover hire has just been zapped. It's about 10-15 a week as a rule - so not a big job. but what can we do? the software doesn't allow mods access to suspend accounts until an admin comes along.

Gary offered some Captcha modifications ages ago but no-one from RR came back to him.

onwards..

A constant flow now of spam with some mornings up to 15 items to delete and often more in the afternoon and evening. Spammers must think they've struck gold with this old .asp site.

Can delete the spam - but cant delete the accounts as a mod, so it's very simple for them to come back in and post more. Have PM'd Chris

Monday morning - never enough time as it is. Have deleted several, the rest will have to wait.

Have PM'd Chris few weeks ago but no answer. Sent a support email to RR asking for Chris to contact and to give some admin rights so that I can zap the re-offending accounts - no answer.

Sorry guys but I cant sit here for 2 hours today zapping all the spam

Have sent another support mail to RR - for Chris to make contact.

Constant barrage now from spam members, who are just being allowed to return and re-post. I need to be able to delete these accounts to make it a little harder for them. One of them is online now and I cant do a thing about it.

Come on RR!

Just exactly how difficult would it be to prevent new users from posting directly to the forum before it could be viewed by a moderator? Gotta be possible?

totally impossible.

Site is written in ancient .asp code and there are no fixes available. Some of us can still write in this language and have offered assistance but all falls on deaf ears...

meanwhile regular offenders long123, phone789, xhanghao123 (same spammer as long123) continue to plague the site.

Guys, do me a favour please and send Chris a DM? Happy to go through all the spam accounts and delete them, but I cant get a reply.

For the third time, I have tried to contact Chris and the RR support team to assist with this. No reply at all. There they all are again this morning - our regular spammers..

assistance please? contact RR help and/or DM to Chris?
