I don’t find it very nice that this andrei person has been trying to push these bhumi brushes for the past 6 weeks or so. Nothing but post after post about the same thing. Makes me feel like this is a personal rep for the company that makes commission off of sales.
I hear ya… Seems spammy
I think the user is a serial spammer as well.
Your right, it’s spam.
Unlike the old forum this one does not have a proper moderation suite. With the old forum if a spammer posted moderators were able to ban the account, their IP address, email address, and a few other nifty things, plus delete all their posts in one simple sweep. Because their was a new post page it was easy to hunt through the recent posts to check for spam that might not have been caught by the system or members. But most importantly, there was a system for members to be able to report spam with a simple click of the button. Members play a massive part in the quick and efficient moderation of any online system.
The new forum does not have any of these things. The only way to moderate this forum is to manually visit new posts to check they’re not spam, and for those that are they have to be individually marked. But, to make matters even more frustrating and tedious, even if I find spam the only thing I can actually do is click a button which removes the spam from members sight but doesn’t actually ban the account causing the problem, leaving them free to continue to spam the forum while I sift through everything to find it. Needless to say, without a moderation suite this is only going to get more difficult as the spam issue grows again.
There’s a certain irony in it all.
why dont we move back to the old forum all the glitches there could be ironed out
The choice to move was a sound one, I just think that what we’ve moved to is equally as faulty only in a different way.
