What can we do...
    #3682540 - 01/26/05 12:20 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

about these Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson threads. Everyone who starts them is a first-time poster that we never see again. Can we fix this? Any way to say, You have to be a member for 24, 36, or 48 hrs before you are able to post?

Many people register here because they need an immediate answer to a question though, such as, "A friend's getting mushrooms in a few minutes, what should...?" I don't think that's a good idea, just delete the threads and ban the puppets

There should be a series of questions, weeding out the worthy from the tripe. Like I suggested before, in my thread about the topic on hand.

No.
A questionaire, I'm stumped and can't give an example right now. My tooth aches.

But i'm thinking maybe 5 questions, that only people interested in growing mushrooms would know. Or something like that...Maybe it would be too much work.

Yea that could work. I think you dig what I'm saying though, and once the test is completed if they pass, they become a member, if not. Well, maybe they can try one more time? I dunno. We'd have to try some different things.

How about we do something a little easier? accounts 24rs old can't make post with those words, or the message is auto flagged so a mod/admin can look over it and decide if some thread and account deleting need to be done.

Sounds better to me.

Your idea would work, except it's only patching the problem.

Since spammers are always an issue, why not implement something to prevent this. Make signing up to the Shroomery abit of a task.

:grin:... it's really nothing new, there have always been silly puppets and spammers that come, say their piece and are banned or abandon their accounts. it's nothing new, the people who run the forums take care of them as they come up.

I don't see the need to declare martial law against these simple puppets, just let the mods deal with their threads and the admins ban them if they become a problem. Their 2 threads in the Pub were actually quite humorous

As gdman says, we love automated solutions and use them whenever possible but when it comes to puppets and spammers there's no substitute for good moderation.

Peace,

I do see the need to declare martial law against these simpson puppets. I will never tell you why, But I will tell you we must declare martial law against something.

Well you're not doing your job as a admin then, maybe we need to declare martial law against you.

I didn't realize it was that much of a problem. I mean, the pub is the first place these spammers always go and we always see right through the BS and flame them for the evil spammers that they are...
:spammer: :banbanban: :flipthebird: :whocares:

After 40 posts nearly identical to the above example, I think that sends out a pretty strong message.

I thought so too. Nip it at the bud kind of thing.
