I've modified something that may allow us to allow new members but restrict the spamming. New users will require post approval for their first 15 posts to ensure they are interested in participating in the forums than "abusing it". Additionally, there is now a 30 second delay requirement between posts.

I've also added a time limit for post editing to be 60 min (this avoids the ability for someone to go back and add spam URLs a few days later).

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask here or send me a PM.


I just joined, how do I create a profile and get started on this website? Don't worry, I read most of the posts about people spamming and putting up porn pictures. I am not here for any of that sort of thing. I have been vegan for about a week and a half to two weeks. Just trying to get involved with the rest of you.
Thanks,
Brian

In the top right you should see an option that says "User Control Panel". That will allow you to adjust your profile (you'll see an option for Profile in it).

Thanks for the ifo, I see what you are talking about. :boxer:
I will have to wait to create a profile when my buddy lets me borrow his digital camera.

I have a question -- what does it mean if I get the error message that upload quota has been reached for the board? I was trying to add pictures to my before/after.

Well, each picture has a limit of 256KB in size and a max of 50MB per post. This means that either the individual pictures are too big or totaling too big (which would make them huge!). You can find out the size of the pictures by looking at their properties (right click and go to Properties). Resizing them down can help.

Thanks! I tried resizing them and it still didn't help though :( the exact error message is that "the board upload quota has been reached."

I'm glad to see you're making efforts to reduce spam. Spam makes so many forums practically useless.

May I suggest you add a "report post" button beside each post that allows each user to help you? There could be a drop down menu of reasons for reporting the post like: spam, duplicate post, offensive, other. On the back end duplicates could be deleted, or at least sorted, so that you only review each reported post once, even if 100's of users report it. This way you are not having to read ever single post to the entire forum (unless you want to) just the ones that the users want out for whatever reason.

I wish I knew how to program this for you. It shouldn't be super-difficult, though. After spammers find that they don't get anywhere in this forum, the smart ones will realize it's a waste of their time, and go elsewhere.

Terrific forum.

Thanks for all your effort,

eimaT

That does exist. The exclamation point button is the report button.

What error do you get? We don't have a limit of the number of pics.
