Site Problems and Questions for the Moderators


Recommended Posts

Guys, the posts with external links are going through approval for a day or two, because the spam posts that are bypassing the spam plugin, are the ones with links, that will be temporary, until I find out what's wrong with the plugin.

This is Quiscalus quiscula's other account, I saw that my post of my birdie results needed to be approved, and shortly afterward I was banned from the site and couldn't get through. I was only able to visit the site again after clearing my cookies.

Just checked both of your accounts, unflagged both, so you are clear... adjusted the ban settings too, I'm trying to figure this out.

Why is this word banned?

I had a post held up until I deleted the word.  Linking to an online image to get the point across. 🙂

Yes, as explained, we were getting barraged - dozens of spams a day - with some kind of fake degree scam, and they all used that word and other similar ones. I know it's a bit of a pain, but you can misspell it, replace a letter with an asterisk, or something like that. Having to delete and ban dozens of spammers a day was a much bigger pain, and interfered with everyone's use of the site.

Did the site recently stop accepting WAV file attachments? 

I believe so. I've recently noticed a list of acceptable file types in the bottom of the message window that I dont recall seeing until the recent upgrades. Wav files are not on the list but I'm pretty sure I've clicked on a few wav files in the past.

I had to upgrade the forums 3x in a short time, every time there is an issue, they release an update, so it's possible that they have dropped or disabled features between updates,  I didn't touch anything on the files section, but since the dashboard has way too many options, maybe they have moved it somewhere else, when I have time, I'll try to check it out.

The admins have checked, and it doesn't appear that this can be adjusted; so it is probably something the platform changed in a recent update. Sorry!

Everyone please take a look at the message for members at the top of this page. Thanks!

When do we have to do that new sign in thing? I wasn’t asked to sing in at all-but I have my settings to “keep me signed in”.
