The spammer knows your forum is not on moderation and there is nothing to stop him. Repeaters like that know how to change their IPs and email addresses and can open new accounts easily.
Set the forum to all messages from new posters being moderated, give Voice to your regular posters and they won't notice any difference since their messages go right through. Simply delete unwanted messages in moderation without mentioning anything in the forum and the posts will stop.
let us know if you need more help with this ...
Have you all taken the blocking privileges away? Yes, it would help me if you gave me the instructions. Thanks.
I sure will Gunter. Actually I need all the help I can get.
Start in your Controls, Forum Management, and mark 'All messages will be moderated'. Submit.
Then in Forum Management, Set Privileges, on the bottom press 'Grant Voice to All'. All your recent posters will have their messages go through as before.
Now ever so often - once a day or more if you have lots of new members coming in - open the Forum Moderation page to see if there are new messages waiting to be approved, or simply deleted without ever showing up in the forum itself.
let us know how it goes ...
Wow what a fancy edit! A table and everything.
i have a related problem. My forum, Serenity Island is supposed to be on Moderation. I did the above steps several months ago
However, two people have come on without voice and they were people i knew so i gave them voice, and a spammer has recently come on without having his post caught in the moderation cue.
The moderation does not seem to work well and there is a person who likes to irritate members and who makes up new identities -the original is locked out but there are several new identities and for whatever reason they have not tried (so the moderation works for them??) when we check the moderation there is never anything to be moderated.
getting old members back is fine but we should not be getting spam in the moderated forum.
