I can't wait for the old stuff to be restored. I am going to spend days just re-reading old threads. Both informative and stupid
Does Rockford's ban expire sometime in this century? cwm2I can only see who's currently banned. It's one page.
Lifetime ban. He had his 2nd and 10th chances and blew it. His 2nd screen name didn't help matters.Does Rockford's ban expire sometime in this century? cwm2
I think banned members have always been able to PM people. Back in the day, Creep PMed me a couple times after he got banned.
You didn't miss them. You just were not around yet.Sorry for the post about thinking you were referring to me KC Clark. I missed those posts.
On the old UBB site, banned people could still PM. I remember someone starting a thread about banned people PMing, I came in with my Creep story and I believe it was Hack that finished it by saying banned people could PM. From what you and BK posted, that is not true anymore. I'm still waiting for HYWAY KOP to give us more details to see if they jive with what BK posted.No you cannot PM while banned but You can still read .
I thought for sure you were referring to me (Creepy) as the outsider (Canada) knowing Helena lives here, therefore me purchasing the forum would have the last laugh.And I was very confused about why you upset with me. If there has been some drama involving you and the forum, I have missed all of it.
I missed the whole BigSexy episode. I've heard about him for years but I was elsewhere (or not paying attention) when it was actually happening.lorne, just be happy he didn't call you Miss Jackson... or, BigSexy!
The solution for this is to make new members have a certain number of posts before they are allowed to PM. AM I correct in the assumption that all the spam messages came from new members with 0 posts? Right now, I think it's set up to have some sort of waiting period to be able post, but not to PM. So the spammers resort to PMs because they can't yet post on the forum. If you force them to post threads first, then they will likely be caught before they can send spam PMs. FWIW I've gotten a few spam PMs before the forum ownership changed. None so far after the change. But spam is nothing new to the forum.... It will always be around regardless of who owns it. If I get a spam message, I don't cry about it, I just delete it. It's as simple as that....
You can also report the spam message to an admin/mod directly from the message. No need to post a thread about it.
^^^^^Yep. Perfect. Plus, mayhaps 'force' newbs to fill in certain salient bits of info in their Profile. Just by the manner of what (and how) they submit would help immensely on how (or if) to reply to their posts/threads.....
what ill do is make it so new members can only PM the admin until they have posted a greeting in the newbie section. this should filter this a little more.
