I think he means he is currently moderating the new users so he can kill off the ones that are spambots.

Thanks, ze.

You should enable candy giving over on your org page...It's even that time of year.

yes, i don't envy the effort going into moderating the spam flow. i maintained my last forum less than 60 days before i just couldn't take it anymore and deleted the whole bloody thing. and that server sees a hell of a lot less traffic than this one.

that worked!
just have to watch for any strays.
could save time by asking real new users to reply in all caps or a special word in the subject, then you won't have to spend time going through each new users, just delete them all.

just a thought.

Nope, correct..but it changed when the the board turned over with the great dark room debacle.

You can still find your name if you click on it..your profile etc will come up.

look under 'view forum leaders' on the front page.
