Why are the Spam posts not outright deleted on this board?
Saw 10 of them still up surfing this morning.
Do you need to keep them up for thread count?

I am sorry, I think that I am the only one that removes them and I have not been on much lately. I do not see reports from my phone like I do on my laptop.

There was 5 reported posts and I took care of them but only 1 of them was spam. I need them reported so I can see them to remove them.

@admin can you set me up so I can delete threads instead of having to move them to the moderator lounge?

Wonder if there’s a way to approve new members first 5 posts or something to avoid endless spam

I think part of the problem is that they join and create a post like a blog. TMF used ro have a blog section and I had a bunch of posts in it but the section disappeared awhile ago in one of the updates. They probably see the forum as a big blog without understanding what it really is.

Im a member of a few other forums i havnt been on in long time. Like a bbq pit forum. I joined but when your first join you are not able to post. think it was a week. You could see more being a member and not just a lurker. But your accnt was restricted from posting replies or starting threads.

Reports don’t show on my phone anymore either since the latest update. I never use a laptop anymore. Text me if I need to ban someone.

On my laptop the reports are highlighted in red and are easy to see but on my phone there is a Moderator tab that I have to click on. I forgot about the tab a lot of times since as pages loads they bounce around a lot.

For that matter, if anyone sees something that needs to be addressed immediately you can text me at 702-595-0488
What we need is more than just you and I policing the forum, we both have our own businesses and families. @rob allen and @admin I suggest you get another moderator or 2 to help us out otherwise all the spam will over run the forum.

Thread count is no longer relevant. Hasn't been for almost 2 years. We are working on the spam issue and will have it resolved soon. With the update we need to now add spam plug ins.
