I agree. I've wondered how to apply for mod because I'm at work 10 hours a day, and even here at home during nights. I can easily delete the posts when I see them. vBulletin boards are very easy to manage. Been using vB forums since 2002.

I have noticed that there is FAR MORE of these type of posts and threads since the new board started, not sure why that is. We are suppose to report these things but even that isn't as simple as clicking the "report" button. You have to give reasons and there is a waiting period between reports.

Mods, you gotta step it up.

Some spammers must like this style of board. Probably easier to have a bot log-on than the old style boards. Sometimes newer makes you more of a target.

Some threads it's impossible to post in too. Looks like there's mutliple bugs but still I still like the new boards.

Poor filters. Seems like everything is getting through.

General Sport currently looks like it's a dedicated spam sub-forum.

At the bottom of every post there is a lower task bar. On the left side there is a triangle with an exclamation post in the center, Simply click on that and put a few words in the dialog box and send it off. We get those notices and respond as quickly as is possible. The spam that is the subject of tis thread was removed withing 4 minutes of it being reported. We continue to scan all forums, threads for spam and will continue to do that.

I have logged in late at night and early in the morning when I've been notified of any type of spam.

SPAM is a way of life on the internet and we have filters but some gets through and we are working hard on that every day.

I just click on the exclamation and put the reason as "Spam" and usually within a few minutes it is gone and I am sure the mods are also deleting the accounts of those as well. Give the Mods a chance, from what I have seen they are really proactive when it comes to these boards and most issues. BTW Mods, why are most emoticons screwed up?:bang:

Yeah most of the emoticons I actually want to use aren't working. I am at least using another site to place images though.

I started reporting them but there's often so many that I can't be bothered.

What's causing this? Is the sign-up process too basic?

Probably because spam bots/scripts are geared for the newer versions of most message boards.

all the hype for eons about the new boards and as far as i'm concerned they are sub-par
in comparison to the old ones.
it took me an hour to figure out how to customize the options and settings back to
the way the old one just automatically defaulted to.
the reason spambots are in is because it is now an automated botted forum template.
the mods check the auto-pilot once a week .and to top it off they have switched to slower servers....
.or reduced the amount of servers i don't know which ....but these new boards are slower than a right guard.

i'm not a freakin' I.T. guy.......i come here to discuss the new york football giants

NOT TO BONE UP ON MY COMPUTER SKILLS !!!!!

I think the board runs on a very popular software that is used by many other sites. The bots that produce spam/advertising probably have a way to hook into the system and even by pass that authentication image thing that we have to copy.

how about you chill out. I have seen these too many times already. Never saw it once on the old boards. Whats different. The Mods donate their time and thats great. If they didnt want to they wouldn't. Nobody holding a gun to their heads. I was just making a comment.

So far they have not deleted any of my posts no matter how negative they are. Also, they helped me right away with my login problem. I think for "VOLUNTEERS" they are doing a great job working with the tools they have available. So let's give them a chance to get the kinks out before we start badmouthing them.

Dude, they are not going to know about the "kinks" unless someone complains about them.
