Its well beyond a joke  this spam.admin

09/06/2012 at 07:48

Just clicked on 'latest posts' and literally the whole of page 1 is spam.  Agree as above, well beyond a joke.  Sort it out.

I'm pretty new to this Forum, but I'm guessing there's no moderating team? Desperately needs one to get rid of all the pi$h that's been spammed on here in the last 12 hours. Makes the Forum completely unreadable.

Del - there is a moderating team but only in office hours.  So we've got the weekend of this cr@p.

RW: Could you not pass this cr@ap onto Advertsing or Trading Standrad s ? Something HAS to be done.

09/06/2012 at 10:19

DelB, SD, in this case its not really the moderating team that should have done something to avoid this, its the actual developers of the forum software that should be sacked.

They've had enough warning this was coming, and were more than aware of the techniques being used, yet they steadfastly refused to do something about it (even though thet have been offered help too!).

There really is no excuse for it, except pure laziness and a cba attittude, both of which should result in P45's for those concerned !!

Can we have a function on this forum where you simply hover over the posters name and have an option to 'ignore' this individual? Would be much quicker and easier than the way we have to do it now. I wonder if this would be possible?

Soup Dragon, Bruce C - I frequent another couple of forums which have 8-10 regular and/or long-standing forum members as moderators, so there is generally always someone around to tidy up threads and block spammers. Is there no chance of them employing such a system here?

RUNNING forum absolutely WRECKED .

09/06/2012 at 11:24

They're even spamming this bliddy thread!  I've got used to most of the changes now but not the level of spam...

09/06/2012 at 11:42

There's so many pages of spam on general now, you literally can't find any proper threads!

And the earliest they'll sort this is Monday now!!

You can't even set proper threads back to the top as the new spam threads are coming every few minutes

they need to use a system where either your first post is verified, or you have to key in manually 2 randomly generated words...they tend to stop this kind of spam

My two randomly generated words of the day

Fucking spam

I wonder if this is part of an evil RW masterplan to have us all migrate to Fetch?

09/06/2012 at 12:37

even with the forums in this state they're still easier to navigate than the fetch forums

Member of other forums that do similar things.

This is just pants. I hope that someone somewhere will take us seriously and realise just how angry we are about this.

OK, anger doesn't help much but it needs to be said. RW forum is facing an exodus of regulars.

Come on RW stamp on this!!
09/06/2012 at 14:30
Yes, I'll be visiting way less often if I find the front page of general bombed the way it is at the moment.

Got to get a handle on this, even if people's first 35 posts don't show up until they're reviewed by a moderator. I'm sure some of the regulars would volunteer to moderate.


Just had a look, and I have to agree with Stevie; Fetch is the worst set-out website I've ever seen. That's simply not an option.

Radicchio: this must be second worse then. Compared to other forums, the moderation is a joke. Notice how even without the spam we end up with about 20 threads on the same subject.

Just in case anyone is still out there - read the obituary columns in tomorrows papers.

RW forums have been announced dead.
