Advertising forum Posts

Post by fhermes »

Has anyone noticed that this forum is flooded with advertising. Is this forum still safe? I have found in several sub forums many not related advertising posts.
@Admin
Please check !

Thanks in Advanced

Unfortunatelly there are a lot of spam users registered daily and we clean posts every day. If you notice spam message that was not delited for some time, please report it (there is an exclamation mark button on the post). This will help us to locate such messages.

We can restrict the registration even more and require pre-moderation, but this will make user experience even worse. If people will vote for this, we will change it and improve the security level on the forum.

And yes, the forum is safe enough ;)

I think that would be a good way to reduce the spam by newly created accounts:

user registration settings
new member post limit
1

This means new accounts can only post freely after their first post has been approved.
