...so who decided the change and in which way they were elected?
Who are the other moderators?
Keith Melville and Balsa?
Better to have moderators from different places: East coast of USA, Aussie land, down under America.
The forum pretty does not need a moderator at all; just some one to erase the spam.
Erase the spam, that’s about all I do In terms of “moderating”...Hope it’s appreciated because it is a pain in the ass. Aloha!
So do I and can't agree more.
Time is hard to find and I appreciate the time you guys give to this site. Big thanks new mods!
What he said :)
Spam - have all the automated ways been tried? For instance setting new accounts for a set period or until ranked higher, that no URLs/links can be posted. This cures 90% of spammers as they are all pushing some 5hit. Making the sign up process really long winded is another, yes its annoying for genuine applicants, but anyone wanting to ask questions on here will (in my view) jump through however many hoops are necessary. Captchas have automated bypasses now, but sending an email to someone with a hello, why I want to join, answer a question asked before signing up etcetera - that is something which really makes spammers think "not worth the hassle" and of course prevents bots doing it. Just my two cents.... i have been through it myself and know the huge time it takes to try and suss out accounts before approving, just making it REQUIRE MANUAL ACTIONS is the best solution I found. Spammers don't have time for it, and often just run software which of course fails. In time your site gets dropped off many spammers lists of "target sites" and this crap slowly dies down too.
