I know your busy as with upgrading the site but, I was just about to comment on a post I thought was spam... Perhaps an option to report the post/user for spam could be good.

Although I would probably get many about my own posts... It could be an easy way. Although I see how annoying it could be for admins to receive reports...

Why do you think this is a good idea?

How many posts are there at the moment, that we do not get? I would have a guess that, we would get around 90% of 'spam' within a couple minutes of it being posted.

And every time a spam shows up we "learn" a bit and improve the system... The option would be good, but it's not essential.

rscole86: Why do you think this is a good idea?


I think a Report Post would be better - if a user thinks the post is spam or against the FUGs it notifies the moderators.

I know you admins love your jobs and all, but I just thought it may be an easier way of moderating the forum without having to read all the thousands of posts. Whereas you guys normally check up on every message that gets posted. If for example one post get's reported x amount of times with a specific warning level then the admin is notified straight away.

I am sure no all of you guys are awake at 3am when the rest of the world is in full swing... 

It's only an idea, I could come up with heaps but I am sure Mauricio would get sick of my suggestions. Another one I was thinking of was how this forum beats the pants of a lot of the other forum systems out there. Licensing the system to other organisations could be another money spinner. But it's probably being done...

You'd be surprised how many people complain because this forum *is not* like other forums. And that's what makes it better ;)

Okay at first I found it strange because the user control was not the same as all the other forums I have seen. And then you told me it's all yours and that is awesome! I mean the systems you have in place are very good compared with what I have seen elsewhere...

Though what I liked about the other forums is there is usually a whole community behind the systems, which ensures that the code is always top. But I think you may have that under control =]

To be honest, I agree with MF here.



I actually quite like the simplicity of this forum in comparison to others, especially since the moderators are actually very active here. It's not very often that I've been here and a moderator hasn't been active (MF included).
So very rarely do I ever see a spam post - or if I do, it's gone pretty quick.
