More idiot posts.

Postby Corey » Wed Aug 16, 2006 5:35 pm

Please let me know via PM or email when you see a post that you know doesn't belong on the forum. I try my best to check a few times a day, but I could get to them sooner since I get my message via my phone. Thanks --Corey

Hey Corey,
More crap "censored word" posts today. Why not impose a ten day , two week, whatever wait period before any new "members" are allowed to post anything? During that wait period some of these "censored word" purveyors may have forgotten they were even signed up.

It takes time to add the mod...needs code change. It has been awhile since the board has been updated, so it might be a little more difficult((but good idea, will check into it)). With the law suites and everything I have just been so busy. Plus where would I get my daily "censored word"?

I am the man! Ok, I am not putting this in the news forum ((where this belongs)) because I think I'll give it away. I added a mod tonight ((5 files changed, 40 lines of code))....yes ... yes.. all for you Rich --haha.. actually ME and my 'proven inability to moderate a forum time after time' -- or at least what I have been told ((please notice the quotes))! This mod will make a new user post 5 replies before they can post a new post. Since installing and setting up, it has already differed 2 people ((One looks like a "censored word" dealer)). I will have one of my programmers look at the code and see if they can modify what I have added to include a 1 day reply on posts. This should pretty much eliminate most of the spam. Or at least make them waste more time than I.

A new user needs now only reply to two posts before the can create a topic. The new mod seems to be pretty effective. --Corey

against adding a few mods?

Postby kristy55303 » Fri Oct 10, 2008 5:27 pm

hey corey, against adding a few mods for the board? Not everyone is available 24/7 and some us are up at late hours. some are not. i know i am up very late due to insomnia( sux but sometimes till 4 am grrr) .....it is very easy to make just a few posts and seems those few posts, x-rated almost get seen instantaneously.and rather quickly. I know i have reported quite a few via PM. just worrying about the underage users of this board. also i see that guests are allowed to post? can this be changed at all? Not hard to sign up and get your name and profile out there....maybe the board members or you can nominate/ask trusted members? I'm co-admin for a small local board, and up late, allowing me to delete any obscene material if need be? just thought i'd throw this option out there to maybe help you and also make sure there is as little time as possible that a person can keep their X-rated material off the board. kristy :?: lol about the wine post. :wink:

p.s. i am aware of how difficult and time consuming this can be. i also have been curious if there should be an option for donations and sponsorship to the site.

Hmmm, I was pretty sure guests couldn't post. Each forum has it's own permissions. Do you know which one lets guests post? Thanks --Corey
