    Hi everyone,

    I would like to ask what the position is with moderators on this forum.

    I used to enjoy reading the posts on this forum but currently, it seems that most of the posts are spam.

    Surely there should be moderators reviewing and removing topics such as ‘Xardas, Mine-Boss, Curtis and Copper Cyprus’

    The moderators do remove them, but they are like mushrooms!
    Its a shame that they have attached themselves to our forum.

    They’re on every forum everywhere.

    I’m a member of several forums and I rarely see spam posts apart from on here. Can’t admins change it so that the first post for new members has to be approved? Or block a range of IP numbers? Or something, surely?

    … Can’t admins change it so that the first post for new members has to be approved? …

    That could work (and terminate the account if it’s obvious spam). I know that the forum is third-party software though so it would depend whether it has that capability.

    What do others think? If there’s general agreement should we put it to Jessica who seems to oversee the forum side of things?

    Come on moderators, there are about 10 threads that need to go.

    Hard to find the genuine ones just at the moment!
