Forum spam

Post by Jo Even » Thu Jul 05, 2018 8:25 am

Due to an increasing amount of spam I have activated Admin activation of new users today. This means that any newly registered user will not be able to post anything until approved by board admins. I hoped to avoid this as it makes things harder for genuine MZ fans, but with the amount of spam we're seeing now we really don't have a choice.

I have also promoted two forum contributors - hlide and TextAdventureKing - to Moderators. Thanks to the admins and moderators who has been deleting spam almost daily for a while now. Lets hope there will be less work from now on :)

Yeah, it was fun getting rid of 92 separate spam posts this morning ;) I think the admin activation is a good thing overall.
