Here is one suggestion ...


1. Creat a Role named "Unapproved", set it as "Is Start"
2. Set "Read Only Access" or "No Access" on all forum
3. Once admin approved, then you set them to "Registered User" Role (offical member) and they can post things.

I seem to recall years ago I registered at some website and they wouldn't let me you my hotmail account. They didn't allow any of those types be it gmail (which wasn't around back then.) yahoo or the like. I had to use the one that was assigned to my internet provider. I wonder if that would slow things down some. Of course technology has changed so much. We probably only had a couple of accounts available to use. Now providers allow you to create a whole lot more.

btw I checked with another board that I go to. I never see spam posts there so I asked him what he did. The only thing he did that I have not seen mentioned here was that he wanted the new members to have a US email address. I find it strange since he was regular posters who are overseas. I told him we have too many members that live overseas who are valued members of the board and we wouldn't want to keep others like them from joining.

Thank you for the leg work.

yopmail was the tell tale for the spammers, but now they are using @domain.com of their choice. I could create wpr@packershome.com if I wanted and if banned, create wpr1@packerhsome.com, etc... or wpr@noequalsol.com ... domain's are easy to come by, especially with the free email services.

I know a few tricks to find out if they are spam accounts. I just have to catch them in the middle of creating/posting, which I have quite a few times. Which lemme tell you, when I slap them out before they get to post ... BOOM I do a little fist pump and flip the finger at them with a big smile.

Kevin:
Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box! Lets Box!

then they say:

Yeah having your own domain 10 years ago was almost unheard of unless you were a pretty good sized company. All the more reason to hate godaddy.

lol I had my own domain 10 years ago ... for a Tribes 2 Renegades clan called Death 2 All. It was d2aclan.com but I think someone has since bought it.

Here is the thing with these approaches.. at least from my viewpoint and experience. The casual user passing by the becomes interested in a topic and wishes to respond, now will not have the ability to, which might prevent them from interacting and possibly becoming more involved.

Basically, will it have an impact on the growth of the website that you have been seeking?

I think it is more notable here because everything falls on one.. not a few that can spread over the load of nipping the spam accounts in the bud.

Probably, but what negative impact to the growth desired is spam having? How many people want to come to a site littered with crap about kitchens in the UK when they are expecting to talk about the Packers? I'd think that would turn quite a few away too. I could be over analyzing things too though. I dunno.

Maybe adding a person or two to help clean up the spam would be best. I dunno. I just don't like sharing "my" problems. I should be smart enough to figure something out to stop this crap. Ugh!!
