One other issue I'd like to bring up with you Lee that has been going on for several months now.

Almost on a daily basis, we have random people come to this site and create accounts just to create threads and post live streaming video links to things that have nothing to do with this forum - such as links to basketball and hockey games or links to news debates or to some movie or show; Others will post links to random websites, that are not affiliated with this forum in any way, shape, or form.

If you take a little time and go through the forum, you will see these spam threads littered all throughout the message board, in almost every sub-forum. All you have to do is look at the threads with strange titles, that have ZERO replies - and you will see exactly what I'm talking about.

It's really pretty aggravating.

Is there a possibility of putting some site requirements in place that will not allow these spammers to just create an account and start posting right away, spamming the board by posting the same irrelevant video streaming links or website links, in 4 or 5 different threads at a time?

I'd suggest maybe a 5 or 7 day waiting period before new members are given posting privileges - or a screening that must be completed by a site administrator or moderator before new members are given posting privileges - or both.

I've seen similar rules like this in place on other message forums and it really seems to help filter out the spammers and keeps them from constantly cluttering the forum with the kind of nonsense we have been experiencing here. I think it would make the forum a lot more enjoyable for all the legitimate members that have been here and are well-established.

Thanks in advance.

We differently can add more spam protection to the site, Have you seen any new spam posts since the upgrade?

They are posted on this site almost daily Glenda;

Here are 20 recent examples of SPAM threads below that I found without looking very hard - all of them have been posted in the last week:

Obviously this has become a rampant problem on this website, I hope you can get a handle on it.

Hey guys,

I have gone ahead and installed a plug-in that will prevent new members from posting images/links/email addresses until they reach 5 posts on the site.
This can be change or removed at any point.

Let us know if this helps out at all.

Richard.

That should filter the link spam and help promote Rookies to become more interactive rather then joining up and posting a question as their first post. Good idea.

Seems like some have already figured this spam filter out:

See the below threads:

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...them-face.html

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...iscovered.html

There are also still several (at least 6 that I see at a glance) new spam threads posted in the last 10 hours or so - just without the URL links.

For as many spam threads that are being posted here, you may have to come up with a more comprehensive solution Richard.

I suggest IP checks at signup. They get banned, and try to signup again, nope. IP was flagged.

That's a good idea.

Also requiring an online membership application to be screened & approved by a moderator or administrator prior to granting posting privileges would also help.
