I can't believe the amount of spam and fake accounts are being allowed. Can the mods get the site admin to update the filters and better verification for new members?

Unfortunately this version of phpBB (from 2005) is really lacking in that functionality.

The owner of the site approached us a few months ago asking if us admins wanted to take over the domain, but honestly I'm out of my depth and haven't done that before. And haven't had as much time to delete spam lately either.

I did replace most spam words with "SPAM DO NOT CLICK", so I hope that helps.

I've done my best to keep up with the spam when I have time. In most cases, I add the user name and IP to the BAN list before deleting the posts, but I'll just delete the posts if I'm short on time.

Got ya, you guys do a good job keeping up. I just notice because I log on every morning that there is some spam in the new member and general auto subs. I was just wondering how they get through so easily and if it could be improved. But if were using an old language to package the site and no one knows how to write better scripts than I can understand.

If it's something you know how to do and you're interested I could talk to him.

It's a low volume site, so nobody's going to get rich off the advertising. But he said it basically pays for itself.

Carl hasn't posted in forever. Does he even still have his Pathfinder?
