Reporting of Spam Posts.
« on: April 27, 2009, 09:39:39 AM »
Hey Guys,

Over the weekend we received two spam posts. These are normally automated and the forum verification image and activation email stops these "bots" from getting into our forum. So I'm hoping the 2 over the weekend were done manually, if this is the case then we wont see too many spam posts.

What to do if you find a posts you think is SPAM.
  • Click on the "Report to moderator" link at the bottom right corner of the post and follow the prompts.
  • Reply to the post with the text "I have reported this post" or something along those lines. This way we don't get a heaps of emails about the same post.
  • If someone has already reported it there is no need for anyone else to post in that topic as all posts will be deleted along with the topic.

What happens next?
  • We will determine if the post is SPAM by checking the User details. (Email and IP address)
  • The user will be banned via user name, email and IP address. And the user account will be deleted.
  • The SPAM posts will then be deleted.

Moderator's you now have access to the ban list. In the event you do action a SPAM post please log it in the Moderators area so I can delete the offending user account. If your not 100% that it is spam only place a 1 week ban and lock the topic. I will then review it next time I login.

 
Cheers
Brett

Try clicking on the "PROFILE" item in the top menu.  Then select "Forum Profile Information" and then you should be able to add a link to your picture.  Don't forget that you need to load your picture to a web site somewhere, most likely to the MySwag gallery.

Hope this helps.

Some of us don't have that option enabled at this time. :'( See Bretts post for the reason why.

I really though twice about deleting him. He's stupid bugger, but gutsy  ;D, plus he posted more times than many people with a real interest in the forum  :angel: Should give him a wrap in the China thread too :LOL:

Thought I'd bring this thread up again as there has been a couple of "Spam" post on the forum tonight.  These posts have since been deleted by the mods, however unfortunately the "Reported" posts have been left in each thread.  Don't panic if you see this (reported), it just means the mods have been doing their jobs.


Moderators, is there any chance the Reported posts can be removed as well as the Spam post, save any confusion or anxt.
