Posts require approval now!

Post by STN » Thu Jun 15, 2017 4:22 am

Should put an end to the stupid spammers!. Newly registered members will need their posts approved before they show up and this includes every post so do not post in a row thinking you can bypass the approval process - it will not work :P .

When you post, please be patient while an admin or moderator comes online. You should be notified when it is approved or if you are a spammer, sent to oblivion and your account banned. All the important functions of the forums can still be used so shouldn't be much of an inconvenience.

Good idea. I just rejected a spammer post...but...I felt a little sad inside because there was no option to ban the user on the same page. :twisted:

That said, I have not been banning the obvious offenders because I am lazy -- so, I've just been deleting their posts when I see them. :o

Rules has nothing to do with it. If anyone needs some written rules to understand that spamming a hundred links within one post about total junk is not okay then there is something wrong with their brain.

Did you saw the junk that was deleted? Did you find them useful? Maybe you found the pills posts useful or perhaps the size increase devices - trouble in bedroom? :lol: . You know you can get them from reputable stores or are you embarrassed to get them?

Could we get the approval/rejection confirmation removed by chance? Don't think we need to notify users that their posts have been approved. Just unneeded, extra clicking for me. :D Thanks.

Nothing a little patience can't solve. :D
I don't peg SunBeam as a cryer...I think that Romanian blood probably makes him pretty hard.
But...just in case...I didn't want him seeing that I had +rep'd you and not him...then have it ruin his weekend. :mrgreen:

^ You don't want to get hard on my nerves :D :D

EDIT: Could only kill the checkbox for "Notify poster about approval". The rest is a redirect from viewtopic.php to mcp[_queue].php, which has to process the Yes/No (has an embedded case function). So, no, can't bypass that, as it needs to be called-in.

It was actually a compliment, SunBeam. But duly noted. :mrgreen:
