Spam everywhere!


Recommended Posts

Looks like Woodsmoke forum is under attack from spam....lets see if anyone can reply to this topic before it gets buried and lost under all these spam posts.

I have just counted 6 spammers logged online at once

I've not been on in a while but sad to see spam etc. What's the best way to help? Should we report as spam? (don't want to add more work for you with notifications etc for you) or leave for you guys to catch?Β 

Was just looking at a couple of salad posts which while are always a welcome extra to a BBQ just feel like self promotion for their YT and not necessarily about accompanying a BBQ etc.Β

We will have to look to see if we can make it more of a challenge to register. We may also look at adding some additional moderators if it becomes more of a prolonged issue.

That's great Scott, thanks. Will discuss with Steve.

I have now set the new user registration to require the normal email confirmation but then now also need to be further authorised by an administrator before they can post.
