spammers have started to spam the site

Post by Admin on Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:57 am

users be aware spammers have posted on the site

if you are unsure of a link please do a google search on the named site via google

it would help if anyone finds one to post and quote spammer

admin and mods will then check and deal with these by either removing the link or at worst banning the user

So Admin, if we find a spam message what is the correct procedure to deal with them. As on other forums I was told by the 'moderator' to contact them via the private message service, with a hyperlink to the spam. As there seem to be no 'spam' button on this site, and posting on the thread that I have contacted the 'Moderators' about the Spam, makes it harder to remove the unwanted posting.  scratch scratch

spam on the fourms just post in its thread the admin and mods will deal with it

by posting in the same thread it alerts the others that it is spam and not to click it

the spam button was ok however didnt alert the people viewing the site that it was spam

spam in your messages pm system just simply delete them

Thanks Admin, to your point "the spam button was ok however didnt alert the people viewing the site that it was spam". We are back to the problem that you have to open the thread before you realise it is spam! I have said about a flag/tag that would tell members/guest not to waste there time on the posting. But not sure if you can do it, and would it be open to abuse? Basketball

If I spot spam, I will just delete it. If I have not, just give me a PM. Thanks.
