What kind of new members will be deleted? New members pay attention to what rules?


Deletions will happen directly if:

- the user has a SPAM http link in his signature or his account details
- the user email or posting IP is found more than once per month or more than 10 times in the database of "Stop Forum Spam" website
- all of the above
- there is no rule 4

So if there are known problems and issues there are some helping FAQ or just ask the Moderators or Board Admins (Admins can be identified as they're wearing a black armour shouting alway: None shall pass!)

Cheers

Hello fellow Kaniggits!

We've had a lot of spammers for a long time here, but my feeling has been that the problem was kept somewhat in check by the mods deleting the spam posts.
The last few weeks however, the spam has been piling up faster than I've had time to delete it.
I'm not sure if this is because of an increase in the number of spam posts or if some other mod has stopped deleting a share of the posts, but either case the spam makes it difficult to see actual posts and I think the problem has gone out of control.

In a desperate attempt to keep the forum clean I locked down most of it. My reasoning is that pretty much no one is posting anything anyway, and by blocking the spam we can keep the forum available for oldies wanting to browse old posts and remember the old times.

While attempting to clean out all the spam posts I accidentally managed to delete all topics in the "New and Departing Members" section. For this I am truly sorry. Embarassed Crying or Very sad

I will leave the "New and Departing Members" topic unlocked for people to post comments and snide remarks about moderator incompetence, and I will try to keep it as free from spam as I can.

I've also disabled new account activation since we have not gotten a real new member in months. If someone shows up somewhere wanting to join. PM me or one of the other mods and we/I will manually add them.

well, turning off account activation seems to have stopped the spammers posting so I've unlocked the forum.
