regarding the spam issue

Postby axlar » Fri Aug 16, 2019 6:46 am

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that we have been working to find a solution against the (recent) influx of spam.

After trying numerous settings, we think we have a decent method in place now, where newly registered members need to have their posts approved before they are published. As an extra meassure we also granted the newsly registered users only access to the 3 main forums:
- Alter Bridge (main discussion),
- General Discussion, and
- Site announcements/discussion.

Once someone invests quality time into the forum they will be granted more access over time...

Happy posting y'all!

Yeah, this post doesn't really belong here. Seems like more spam...I'm thinking I should report it.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

I like this idea. Also encourages board traffic for those interested in signing up, good deal.
