Attention All Members & Guests
In an effort to combat all the SPAM that we have been experiencing lately we have implemented something new. Each new member with less than a few posts (No, we're not going to reveal the exact number, but it's not many) will have their posts placed in a moderation que. Their posts will be examined by an Administrator on a routine basis and if the post contains no SPAM it will be released to the thread it was intended.
In addition to this members who fit in this category will not be able to upoad: Pictures, Attachments, or other items condusive to SPAM.
We ask all new members and older mebers that only have 1 or 2 posts to bear with this practice as it should virtually eliminate any SPAM getting through to the forums. We want our member to enjoy this forum, but not at the expense of the horrific amount of SPAM we have experienced in the last 60 days...The probationary period is very short, but it should be adequate to help eliminate the SPAM getting through to the forums. Most of you will never notice the controls are even in effect. Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter!

Thank you, how did you get that to work? My clan is having problems with some autospam in our forums. Though we had it sealed up, but every now and then it creeps back in. Seems to have something to do with the title of the thread.

Now thats the only way to fight spam.
You have to moderate it, but at least you will rid the forums of this ridiculous practice of "enlarge your penis" posting.
Thanks a lot bjorn3d this is the most effective way unless you have spammers that have a lot of time to lose to post a bunch of things like nothing is going on then they spam then they get banned.
Anyways good job bjorn you guys know how to run things

This seems to be a widespread problem. We've temporarily closed forum registrations at 3dgpu because of the spam problems we've been having. What you guys are doing looks like a good idea. I hope it works.
