Hi Christian, thanks for the feedback. We have been researching trying to moderate first posts, but the platform we use doesn't have that ability. We have a few more draconian solutions that we have deployed in the meantime.
I don't agree. There ARE first-timers that are here for the benefit of the community. And they are welcome. We don't need to punish them because there are spammers.
first timers are welcome, but keeping their post moderated should not be a big problem. I use that for some forums I monitor.
Anyway, I'd love to see some improvements.
It's just bad to scan through mails in Filemaker folder just to see that most are spam.
I agree with Bev. I don't think that's the answer. In theory it sounds like a good idea, but in practice it just creates a ton of work, and discourages people from coming back.
I for one have never gone back to a forum where I began my experience in the penalty box.
