Hi all,

After a while of cutting down on the amount of spam on these forums by using some quite strict settings, I've decided to open things up again.

You will now be able to start new threads after two posts; for example you could post in response to this thread, and once in another, then you are fully able to post anywhere you like.

The reason that there is are any restrictions at all is that there are a huge amount of spammers that try to access these forums on a daily basis, and without any controls at all then we would be flooded with adverts for sites featuring photographs of unnatural acts with animals and tablets that would probably allow you to perform such acts if you so desired. Given that I intend for this place to be early-teens upwards, I don't think this kind of thing is suitable (then again, it's not really suitable anywhere... But you get my drift). The point is, spammers tend to only post once or twice in any forum then go away, therefore if I can block those early spams then hopefully I can prevent that kind of rubbish turning up on here.

As before, there are forums in which you can post new threads immediately, such as 'personnal concerns', mainly because I feel that if a person needs help then there shouldn't be any restrictions on that, but the most popular forums now need for you to have joined in elsewhere a little bit first.

'Hope you all understand, and have fun on my forums.

Mata

I dont know much about how you guys get to manage these forums but is there no software or some add-on or plugin that acts like a firewall for forums? I understand why mata has make that posting rule, and why you[radaga] have to approve all new members in yours, but i think the posting rule works better unless you have the time to go through all the membership registries. i dont know if those spammers can go around the posting rule, but i haven't seen a spam post yet since i joined.

Sadly no. It got to the point where I was deleting dozens of accounts every day, trying to filter real ones from the fakes, but this posting rule has eliminated nearly all spam. It's not ideal, but most spammers only try to post once, so it does the job and keeps some quite horrible links from getting on here (one memorable spam before I got severe about this was links to sites involving people and animals in unusual circumstances).
