Wouldn't that be cool if you could see in to the future, and the only thing you did with that power is see what SSO likes you were gonna get:lol:
Almost a monkey paw thing. Or the world’s lamest sidekick superpower.

The spam is getting out of hand. It'd help if @Alex would bring back the whole "no posting links until you have a certain number of posts" setup, or something to mitigate it.

That or just a 1 day post buffer, maybe. Create account, wait a day or three then you can post bro.

:agreed:

9 spam threads today, from new members who joined within the last day, some only minutes ago, and able to post links in their first post.
I cannot remember the spam thread problem being this bad.

Please do something about this :scream:

The number of spam posts you see is tiny compared to the number that show up for moderation. The filter is actually getting about 80% of them, from a top of my head calculation. The problem isn't just here, either.

Sorry if that came across the wrong way, my mood is actually good-humoured exasperation, i should have added a LOL, like this :scream: :lol:
Also, i am not suggesting nothing is being done. I was surprised new members did not have restricted permissions, thinking those might help to deter spammers.
I used to be an admin for the 'subcontrabassist' ERB forum, i know what it is like :lol:

Not sure if it's a problem on my end, but it's driving me crazy...

Does anyone else have problems hovering the mouse over the forum navigation links? For example for this thread, right at the top:
I find that when I want to go back to the previous page, the link doesn't recognize the mouse properly when I want to click, and I have to point it like almost out of the links for it to work. It's a pain in the ass! Looks like the clicking area is of 1-2 pixels height tops.

The issue seems to be desktop-only problem.
