From the SCA Editors: Spam Moderation
Posted by Robby DeGraff on Wednesday, January 03, 2018 10:33 AM

Hi all- hope everyone is off to a good start this fresh 2018.

I just wanted to let you know that I've found a newer and quicker way to moderate and delete the spammers that plaque this forum. For whatever reason, all the reports of abuse/spam weren't showing up in my dashboard so I had to do a bit of digging around. (The last reports that were 'new' were form 2014).

I've done a pretty hefty cleaning this morning and hopefully that will lighten up the junk seen on this site. I appreciate the patience, I don't have the manpower or time to spend all day surfing the forums and laying down the banhammer and I can't promise I will be able to do this every day, (because we've got a magazine to put together and that's my top priority) but I'll try now to hope on here more often with this new cleaning tool I've found to get rid of spammers. Once we have a bit more free time and we're finished with our magazine indexing project, hopefully we can figure out a solution to assign a moderator role to someone bysides myself or Mark. 

Thanks folks

"I've found a newer and quicker way to moderate and delete the spammers that plaque this forum."  Does this mean we are to continue reporting spam as in the past with the little yellow flag, or not?

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Keep reporting them like you usually do, I've just found a better and easy way to now access the reported/flagged comments.
