spam and organization

This forum gets so much spam it's not funny. There needs to be some sort of way to prevent this. I am deleting and banning 2-3 people every time I pop on here. Please find a way to cut this down.

Also there are so many threads in wrong sections and such. Like how to hook up a cell phone in the Site issues area?

How many active mods do we have now? If there's only a handful who are getting on every once in a while then its going to start piling up and making the forum look bad. New members will think its abandoned and get turned away.

Can the average Joe member tag these posts somehow or is it a strict mod thing?

you should be able to click the triangle icon, with the ! in it, at the bottom left of the post, to report spam. If the mods are on vacation or gone or something, it may not work.

I probably ban the most spammers. Just over the weekend I have had like 5 emails from members informing me of spam. I just think instead of this we need a stricter sign up. Some way to catch more spammer instead of letting them actually make an account and a thread.

I run some other online groups and agree that having a stricter sign up process can aid in reducing the amount of spam. But I would be concerned that it will turn some away if they have to wait too long to be approved.

Can you add some of the more active members to the moderation team to help get rid of the spam. It's ruining this forum....
