Tired of the spam

Postby Annia Minucia Marcella on Sun Sep 06, 2009 9:51 pm

Everyday I come on here and it seems the spammers post more often than the members. How about you make it so you have to approve membership, or that new members' posts are moderated? It's really annoying and I'm getting tired of reporting spam to the mods.

...There; I've made it so that new accounts have to be activated by one of the admins. When a new member registers, instead of getting a letter with an activation link, his or her name will be listed under "Inactive Members" on the admin panel until an admin checks a box after the name and chooses "Activate Member". We had it that way on the old Board, for the same reason; I was hoping that step would not become necessary here, but it looks like they've found us...so back goes the restriction.

Sigh. I ain't been nothin' but a janitor lately...check in, sweep the floors, take out the trash...

Salvete, Marii Anniaque -

"Nothin' but a janitor" - hardly, Marii. Not to us. I know you're feeling down about the SVR's slump, and I was certainly down myself after causing so much unexpected trouble from our garrulous, hyperactive, ex-friend, but we needn't stay that way.

Maybe we need to start some virtual gladiatorials around here. Back in the day we had the virtual chariots. Maybe it's time to try out some Ludi Societatis; quid censitis?
