Spammers and Moderators
« on: October 16, 2018, 07:03:16 PM »
I've noticed the new forum is being decimated by spammers - do you need any extra moderators to clear up the threads and bin the fake members as otherwise the site will be worthless!

There are various plugins for SMF that can prevent spammers from posting, i.e. first 5 posts have to be approved etc etc. Happy to help if required.

Anything that can help, I can't remove members just moderate or remove posts.
