Can You Do Anything About SPAM?

Post by Una Real »

Can you please do something about the endless stream of SPAM on these forums? Am sure I'm not the only one who would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Totally agree. I clicked "report" on some of the spam articles but they are coming more and more.

ben on y peut rien... Vu que j'ai déjà mis 2 questions "pièges" dans la création de compte, je pense que ce sont de "vrais gars" qui créent les comptes, et non des robots....

What about only allow URLs and other links only as the 5th posting and not allow it in the signature as well?

There are other options to prevent SPAM, one Article about this in PHPBB 3 I found here(It's in german, but most of the code used is in english):

Fred,

Since the ability to delete is limited to a few (or perhaps only you), perhaps ask for volunteer forum moderators that can assist with this task.

I have seen a ton crop up in the last few days, and I am only an occasional viewer here...
