As many of you know we have had a problem with a person or people who have been flooding the forum with off topic posts in what I think is Vietnamese.
Why? I'm not sure. But what seems clear is that whoever is doing it does not like when I delete them.
Part of the problem is that I'm not very good at tech. However, I think I found the solution.
I've changed the settings so that I must approve who can be a "member" so they can post.
The truth is the membership thing was built into the platform it means nothing. I think it was designed for people who want to use it for marketing or something. But, in this case, I think the membership thing will allow for me to stop the problem of these "spam" posts. I will not do any sort of purge of the members, but when these post do show up I'll be able to exclude those who are doing it.
I hate to get into the moderation game, but I now understand why.
All that to say, I'm going to work today to make this change and update the forum. I think we have enough regulars here to have a vibrant community. I'll try to make it work.
OH....I have found a way to give comment boxes to my image posts. Let me know if it works
Any suggestions would be appreciated....or if someone would like to volunteer to be the moderator I think I could figure out how to make that happen.
