Is there a Way to STOP these spam ADS on MC forum?

Postby neurotrader » 23 Jul 2006

Is there a way to stop these annoying spam, ads on our support forum?

Seems there are more and more everyday.

:idea: Perhaps making posts only for those who register on the forum.

Just a suggestion. I get enough of these in my email.

We've already tried an antispam function, did not work well enough. The spam bots were able to register quite easily and post on.

Actually, nothing beats a human moderator - if you could spare some time to prune the forum on a daily or so basis, we could give you administrator rights, as we deeply trust you and respect your contributions to the forum.

I try when I can to read this forum daily. I can try and delete some ads when I am on. Email me with the info.

Perhaps you can get a couple more here to monitor as well, then we should be set

Sorry markv, we offer participating in the administration only to the members that have been here a long time and contributed much to the forums.

Thank you for the input guys. We'll try to integrate some more anti-spam modes into the forum later this week and give you both the moderator rights if this doesn't help.
