No need to mullet that one over, I'll be dropping the bass later myself.
. . . on a serious note - to moderate new member registrations is one solution . . . a couple of fora that I have joined in the past have a process where you fill in all the details and then a moderator checks before allowing access to post* - up to, say, 24 hours** would seem reasonable to me? That does of course take some effort but most forum software has the facility to handle the process.
That said it doesn't seem that often that the site is infiltrated by these people.
* and some require a defined number of posts before being able to post sale or wanted items - to stop advertising and scam sales
** that delay may perhaps stop new registrants with the often inane (at least to me ) knee-jerk questions where answers are readily available with a very basic search.
@robgul I did bring this up with Peter, however when you think these posts have been there for 18 hours or so it would deter genuine new members.
What I can't understand is that I reported some last night, so why they are still there is beyond me. I have reported them again today and tried to message @screwfix.peter as I am pretty sure he will not want them any longer.
Really don't know what the admins are doing at the moment.
The senior moderator has put them in their Plaice.
I reported an account this AM & their posts. As relatively new to these forums I wouldnt have minded waiting 24 hours for a moderator to check my details & give me access to the site. If I was some1 looking for help forums of this kind & found these forums last night, seeing what I did, I would have joined a better modded site as Id have thought that was the norm for here.
Has been suggested before that two or three long term trusted members are given some basic admin rights - the ability to suspend a member and hide their posts which the "real admins/mods" can then delete. Those members would also be responsible for their actions.
If that happens Screwfix should close the forum.
So it appears tonights moron has appeared and they still havent cleared last nights.
Numerous report tags submitted, messages sent via posts and naughty boy emails to @screwfix.peter, and still no action from the mods.
@screwfix.samantha @screwfix.samantha2 can you deal with them?
Lol apparently the mods only work office hours
That's right, they couldn't manage a full day!
