What’s up with the moderators? The Chinese spammers are on the loose, same as some other VS forums. You guys all on vacation?
Thanks I know how to report a post. My issue is about why the mods do not clean this stuff up. I know it’s a thankless job, but having these up for several days tells me the mods are AWOL If you go and carefully read my post that was posted in the correct location for such issues you will see what my point was.
I know this isn't the point, and you've probably done it anyway but just in case…Thanks I know how to report a post. My issue is about why the mods do not clean this stuff up.

Sorry but that is B/S.I know this isn't the point, and you've probably done it anyway but just in case…
I just click on one of the obnoxious threads and chose to 'ignore' the poster. As there's only (so far!) a couple of posters bombing the site with Chinese characters that's working for me at the moment.
I get that K1W1! Just a bandaid fix to stop me getting irratated I thought I'd share. FFS.Sorry but that is B/S.
These people should be banned at source by the forum admins. The user name banned and the IP address blacklisted. Ignoring a user is not designed to wholesale not see posts from spammers. Users of this site should not have to use workarounds to attempt to compensate for basic failings in site management band administration.
Thanks for the reply. Is it possible to simply hold a new member’s first post until approved? That should solve the issue.Hey All,
This is a larger issue that we are working on a fix for. I will personally be checking in every morning to help out the site volunteers. As mentioned, reporting the posts help us focus on them.
I know our larger fix is in the pipeline, but finding a resolution that these spammers don't quickly adapt to is a challenge in itself.
Thanks for everyone's help
Thanks for your work! And knowing that you are acting on the reported posts is good; will continue to report!
I notice that there are three moderators for this forum. You seem to log in irregularly but at least every couple of days. Of the other two moderators neither has logged in for over 4 months! Isn’t about time those two people were shown the exit door as moderators and you asked the community for a a couple of volunteers amongst those who log in daily? Surely having people who log in more frequently than every 4 months will go a long way to if not stopping the constant stream of spam at least removing it from view promptly.
Hello all,I'm happy to offer my services as an expeller of spam-posters. I don't need full moderator rights, just enough to delete posts and posters.
I'm in Australia to vary the time zones.
Hi Jeff,Hello all,
Sorry for the delayed response on a reply we have a bit of a backlog.
We will be rolling out some performance updates over the next few weeks to resolve the speed issues and are currently making some tweak to the spam settings with weekly releases.
Note some reCaptcha updates were released this week so it should help with the spam.
Would you guys like to help out as moderators, we can setup promotions.
Once those are resolved we will start working again on bugs and new features.
As @FatRob is in my time zone I'll let him be the volunteer from the Antipodes but it would be great if somebody in Europe and maybe one other from the US could put their hands up. That way between the three spam should be able to be removed very quickly.Hi Jeff,
I am happy to help out with moderation.
