Not saying it's bad- or good- but sometimes I prefer less info - no need for anyone to know I made a mistake typo wise people may think I'm to lazy to proofread which clearly I am- or I may take out something about a promotion I shouldn't have put no reason to let everyone know that
NOW HIRING!!!! REQUEST INFO VIA PM

The "current active member" and "members who have visited today" does not count us members who have our online status hidden. Can this be corrected?

If the recent outbreak is any indication, the new site doesn't filter spammers too well.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Anti-spam is, and always has been to my knowledge, a manual operation.

I believe he's referring to the sign up process.

Ok. I misunderstood; you're talking about bots and captcha and that kind of filter, then. I'm talking about what seem to be humans, mostly in Asia, spamming us with garbage links for fake ID, fifa coins, women's lingerie, whatever that have to be banned/blocked/deleted/etc. Is there some way to filter them I'm not familiar with?

Yeah, I'm talking about the recent human spammers.

Wasn't there originally limitations for new people? If not, maybe there should be....

The new site is actually doing much better job, as the old WoV had no real spam protection. And if you refer to the outbreak which happened few months ago, then it was already been dealt with, given the new anti spam measures implemented at that time. Which reduced the bot spam to minimum.

As far as the real ( human ) spammers, that's where things are always bit trickier. We will look into implementing some posting restrictions in terms of links etc.

Actually, I was referring to an outbreak in spam in the last few days.

For what it's worth, I don't think enough people use / know the function of the Flag button

Zuga I think it would be useful that under a members profile, members they can see their posts/threads. At the moment a member can only view their posts by clicking on their login status at the bottom of the page and selecting view posts. Alternatively a notification pop-up once you have logged in.

Just noticed a new admin, onwards and forward, a good move.
