Why not have some type of captcha. At the very least is would slow down the baddies. Also, there are programs that can detect porn by the pixel count. Just some suggestions. I wish you the best in figuring it out.

Obviously making it harder for the trolls to register and having someone around to delete their accounts most of the time (particularly during Australian office hours) is needed. If it takes them a while to register only to have their accounts instantly deleted they will give up. Just remember that whoever offers to moderate might be one of them.

I do have a CAPTCHA and a humanizer question. Remember? Try to register a new account and you will see it.

A program that tries to detect porn could easily have false flags in wrongly detecting normal images.

Cornfed, I'm not going to make moderator anyone who wants to. Obviously it has to be someone I know and trust.

After I posted that, I kind of had a flashback of registering, and after that I did not know if you had captcha or not.

There's no way to put someone on moderated status in this forum's control panel. I'll try to install a hack or mod that will do that, and give moderators like Jamesbond banning power too.

Ok I've searched for options on what to do about that gay porn spammer. Here is what we are going to do for now.

I've installed a hack that will give moderators like Jamesbond ban control. He can access it at the top. Look for "Ban Panel" between the Ignore List and Logout button. In the Ban Panel, he can enter the username of the spammer, but he must make sure to spell it correctly including dashes and underscores and spaces. He can also enter the spammer's IP and email. Then he must hit the submit button at the bottom of the panel to enter it in.

Jamesbond, next to each post, do you see an IP button and an Email button? If so, those will tell you the person's IP and email. You can use that to find this info and enter it into the Ban Panel. Look over the Ban Panel and let me know if you have any questions about how to use it. Again, you will find the link to it at the top, and you enter the appropriate info in the fields and hit submit at the bottom. Next to each feature will be a short description.

Anyhow, when you ban the spammer (and his IP and email) you can then either delete his posts, or just PM me to delete them. If he has posted less than five spam posts, then you can delete them one by one. But if it's more, then just PM me so I can wipe out all his posts with one click.

The Ban Panel is only accessible to moderators.

Maybe we can have another moderator to help out too. How about zboy1, since he is so good at reporting spam?

I have no problem being a moderator and banning spammers. I won't be a strict moderator, though, because I believe in freedom of speech.

Ok I will make you a moderator now then, so you can access the Ban Panel at the top. Look it over and let me know if you have any questions about how to use it. It's pretty self explanatory. Just remember to hit the submit button. Each feature has a short description next to it.

But remember, don't ban anyone for bad behavior or arguments. Only ban the porn spammers and those spamming bad links. If you can, ban his IP too. You will find his IP in the IP button next to his post. Just copy and paste it into the IP field of the Ban Panel and hit submit.

If the spammer managed to post a lot of spam, then just PM me to delete it later. But for now, just try to stop him. To delete a post, click the x button next to the post. But only do that with the spam posts.

Thanks for helping, and let me know if you have any questions.
