Suggestion to the Site

Post by captainrex803 » Wed Oct 05, 2016 2:54 am

I've noticed over the past couple of months that we get a spam bots of sorts that posts advertisements to another website. I also notice that these all seem to occur around the same time. Is it at all possible to view the IP or just any information regarding where the spam accounts come from, so that you could ban that whole IP from making new accounts. If that is at all possible I think we can make this website a better place.

Thanks captainrex. The site needs to be upgraded and changed. There could be a possibility that the forum software could be changed.

Is there a forum upgrade in the works or is that just a possibility? If there is an upgrade coming, could you turn off new accounts temporarily until the new software is in place to stop the spam?

Sorry with the late reply hatcher. That's a good suggestion. All new accounts are now being reviewed. Its a possibility but it will happen. Either a new forum software or something else.

When you say new accounts, you don't mean guys like us, right? You mean posters with under 5 posts?
