Spoof Posts

Request for change on who can leave a link in a post.

 

We are constantly getting spoof messages with url links to non ACT sites. 

 

Please can I suggest that "new members" do not have the ability to incorporate URL links in their posts. This should be earnt once they have reached the next member level.

 

My concern is without this safeguard we are are going to get links to harm-ware.

Moderator - Please respond and stop these spoof posts by not allowing new members to post URL links - its getting out of hand!

@ch1p... Have you tried, on the offending post, Mouse over Options, and "Report Inappropriate Content"? Type "spam" and click Notify Moderator.

 

I've just done it for a few from the past week... Not sure who the Moderator is these days.

Hi Mike

 

Yes always reporting but I am not even sure if we have a moderator on the forums anymore.

No actions or response to this post by Swiftpage so far.

 

Also posts not being removed in a timely way when they are reported. 

 

Would welcome moderators reply.
