Spam threads FAO Moderators


Recommended Posts

I've noticed a lot of spam in different sub-forums and wonder how these users are able to post without any moderation. I've reported a few of them, and mentioned that there are plenty more. In the off topic sub forum, there must be dozens at least. I stopped checking after page three.

Is there a way to moderate them before these posts become live?

Hello, thanks for the question.  So unfortunately the only way to pre-screen new members would probably be a turnoff to legitimate new posters and a huge onus in responsibility to the Mods as they'd have to assess every new poster and then allow them access to the site.  The main 6 forums are/were protected with a 10 post floor for new posters to meet before being able to create threads in them.  There may have been some settings which changed when the site rebranded however and the tech team is looking into those.  They are also looking into any global issues which may have affected the spam filters for the site as this surge is something we haven't seen in a number of years.  There are people looking at the situation but we'll have to be patient until we receive a solution.

Thanks.

Thanks for getting back to me, and appreciate the explanation on the situation. In the meantime, I'll continue to report posts as I see them to help the moderators and hopefully the tech team will find a solution. Cheers.
