Can we change the forum rules?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure I'm not the only one who hasn't noticed just how much spam the site gets.

 

Can we possibly make a rule so new users can't start threads?

Or maybe have a captcha thing for users with less then 10 posts?

 

Much love

Most of the users in the moderator list don't visit very often. Maybe we need one or two extras who come here regularly and can delete these posts

+1 to disabling rapid thread creation or adding more forum moderators. However, I do not believe disabling new thread creation is the way to go as that would lead to thread high jacking with new people trying to ask questions.

Unfortunately only Andy have admin rights.

He is the only one that can add moderator and change the forum settings.

Hello.

I try to solve problems with spam on this week.

 

Make it a paid site for new members. $5 in order to see and post on the forums. That will help pay for web hosting... and if spammers want to pay $5 to spam your site, then they get banned. Win win.

Not a very good idea imo. Would you pay?

Really. People would defect to free sites..

A forum I browse closed during peak periods to non paying members. People ended up leaving to other sites and it disappeared from the web.

phpBB got some nice captchas on board by default (Q&A for example) combined with custom profile fields you can create a effective spam protection within 5 minutes.

 

Already wrote andy a message with the offer to help him - didn't get any response...

Yep, definitely..

 

Also, the forum is badly in need of moderation.

It's frankly a bit of a mess.. Lots of off topic responses (that should be new topics) etc etc..
