I haven't seen any spammers for a while.

OOPS! :roll: spoke too soon! > viewtopic.php?f=108&t=19011

Where did the report post button go?

Spammers are still around but we've got our gates firmly locked :smile:

Post you reported was made from an Australian IP address, which is highly unusual. So much so that we don't even check these for spam.

I'll look into the report post button issue.

We do not have a report post/ topic button so i post here.
A thread created by someone who helped get the earlier versions taken off the web has started a thread wanting access to a very closed membership site for obvious reasons. please delete thread.

Last night i was asked by Cassini if he could post a link to his international forum, i was not sure and wondered if a certain post number had to be reached before hotlinks enabled.

So told him to ask a mod, he chose DJ, now i got a message on twitter saying DJ banned him as a spammer? :shock:

viewtopic.php?f=73&t=14565

His os site is vastly different in content to here and appeal, newschix folks are a dedicated breed so can not see a conflict or traffic loss. :cofee:

Is it true he got banned? As a basic member pleb I can still see his profile

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=111385

Newbie forum link in question... http://reportercaptures.forumotion.com/

He was banned, I'm guessing because he was promoting his own forum here and being a newby, one could reasonably consider it spam. You don't join and start promoting your own forums without having good reputation.

He's been unbanned, but put on notice. Last section in the page you linked explains why he shouldn't promote his forums here.
