Thank you Duplu and the moderators for keeping this in check. I see forums where spam, is ignored and tbh it is just such a faff to wade through the mountain of shite that the members don't bother and then the forum dies. Well done for taking such decisive action.

Should be fixed now. Nothing personal, all layout creators couldn't submit or view reports.


What about gold members, because I cannot either - either that or change me to a layour creator, not fussed really.

Cheers

We already use captcha on the registration page. I think these are real people and not spamming bots.

cant edit my post O_O to delete double signature
Use the mod that prevents them from adding links of any type until they've made "x" number of posts. I find that 5 or 10 posts is usually sufficient to curb that kind of stuff.
Check out this http://www.simplemac...?topic=452752.0and be sure to implement some of that and the spam will stop for sure Posted Image

This Mod is for SMF sites (like mine) only, therefore it can't be used here,

Ok folks my above post did sound a little too harsh on the matter, i didnt mean it to sound nasty in the way that it sounded. although i do have an idea that could tone down the spammers, it involves payments for FULL features of the website which includes posting on the forums and the shoutbox. New members that dont pay are limited to ONE download per day, no forum, no shoutbox or anything else the website offers and people that have made such payments over a certain period of time get a 'supporter' status, scrapping the silver/gold statuses at the same time.

Even if thats a good idea or bad idea, whatever happens i hope the best in stopping these spammers altogether!

Just wondering danny how will they be able to have the one download if they cant view the forums? I've seem one or two sites like this and have not bothered with them. Yes it's a good idea to generate funds to help maintain the website but with a site like fruit emu I don't think it would work.

Fruit emu has always had loads of traffic . I deffo wouldn' be to beef the statistics.  Type in fruit machine emulation in Google,fruit emu is at the top.


Hold the bells mate.
