Increase of spam posts

Unread post by Sladek789 » Wed Apr 03, 2019 6:24 am

Hi administrator team,

I guess that we have noticed a significant increase of spam post pollution on the forum in the past months, is there anyway to reduce it or at least remove them faster?
I'm not way an IT guy but how can I/we help? Can we flag them as spam to you to better identify them? If yes, how?

Thanks!

And yet that Face Cream post had over 100 views and counting! I didn't know so many blokes here are worried about wrinkles!

I agree with Sladek. We need someone to delete the spam posts. Tedious having to scroll past pages of that crap.

I think the admin is not paying attention to this forum anymore.
It is a massive slowdown in activity as well. Unfortunately :(

I noticed that too :cry: ... I guess the spaming does not help but that is only part of the issue.

From Niels (sole forum admin) member profile page, he visited the last time on Thu Feb 14, 2019 1:26 pm... :roll:

I wonder if one of the three Global moderators have the proper rights to do the cleaning and remove the spam posts.

To my knowledge, most hombrewing forums out there have some topics on Braumeisters but it is usually not that active... here is still the best place (which I'm sure we can make it better :beerbang: )! I guess BM owners are simply no social media/forum hyperactive people :lol: .
There is actually a somehow active good FB group called "Speidel Braumeister User Group", feel free to join.

Looks like the spammers are back and the moderators are nowhere to be seen
Don't forget to wake up breathing!

Looks like the sheriff needs to deputize a few more volunteers.

I'd be happy to help out.

+1, happy to help out if needed, I know I don't post too much but I do frequently visit this site.
Vacuum the dust won't make me feel dirty, obviously it doesn't happen too much in this place..

(currently it feels like visiting a porn forum and i'm glad my daughters aren't watching over my shoulder)
