    Ummm putting in an Avatar is confusing from the User CP. It would be nice if there was a message in the "edit avatar" that says..

    "looking to add an Avatar? click here" or something.. just a suggestion.

    I had no problem becoming a year supporting member. The forum is worth that!

    I approved his posts. I don't know if he posted them before he became a supporter.

    Re: Spam Defense

    Hi, my post has 1 URL address where it has a pic of a wheel. But I don't know why it triggered your spam filter. Would you please take a look at it. Thanks.

    Re: Spam Defense

    I haven't read through anything past the first page, but here's an idea to help you guys with spam defense.

    I run two forums myself and I was having a problem with spammers, so what I did was set up a user group (we'll call it Registered Users for simplicity), that did not have the ability to post new threads or send private messages, but could post replies to threads. I made it so that once a Registered User posted x number of posts in currently existing threads, they would then go to the usergroup Members, and Members can then post new threads. This all but totally stopped the spam problem on my forums.

    Re: Spam Defense

    I tied to post 2 or 3 times before I realized this. The post had URL's to pictures of my new CTS-V. Then I tried to send a message to the webmaster, but it also got kicked (it had no links) Hopefully this will get through and someone can help me. Thanks.

    Re: Spam Defense

    I tried posting to a thread, but its in spamland. I'm too green I guess, but I thought supporting members (which I am, and this is a great site to support!!!!) are exempt?

    Re: Spam Defense

    So I guess links to photobucket are classified as spam? lol... The only link I had in my post was to my PB account for the latest pix, as I didn't want to spend half an hour uploading 18 pix to a post
