Hi everyone! As you may have noticed, this forum has had a spam issue for a while. I posted earlier that I reached out to Russ, the website developer and admin, as well as the Doo Wop Preservation League last month about the issue. Earlier this evening, Russ replied to my post and gave me access as a moderator. He also deleted all the spam posts, and I just went through all the comments to clear the spam ones as well. I go on here every few days and followed all the categories, so I'll see when new posts come up. This should take care of the spam issue.
I am really excited to have this opportunity as I have been a member of this forum for somewhere over a decade. As much as this site has changed in the last few years, it's still a place I like to visit, especially when I'm missing WIldwood.
So keep the posts coming!
Thank you for all you do Nicole. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you! I'm definitely being kept on my toes, but I've been trying to stay on top of the spam posts.
We'll keep your family in our prayers. We know what it's like.
congrats and well deserved!
and, I hope everything is ok with the family.
Hi everyone! I have a family emergency and might not be as available for the next couple of days. If anyone sees any spam that’s not being deleted quickly please let me know. Thanks!
Nifty. Thanks for the update. That one guy posted 25 times on one thread in a few minutes last week.
I just wanted to give a little update as there seems to be another uptick in spam posts. When I started moderating, I was depending on my email notifications. Of course, the problem with that is it's often delayed. Yesterday I found an app to this site through the hosting website, so now I get notified instantly whenever there are new posts, comments, or even new members. This should make things a little easier for me to keep track of.
You may have also seen a certain "user" posting multiple spam comments (sometimes as many as 20 within a few minutes). I do not think I have the ability to remove users, but did reach out to Russ, the site's creator, and let him know what's going on. I'm hoping he'll get back to me so that I can remove the spam accounts. Until then, all I can do is delete each post or comment as I see it.
If you happen to see anything that is clearly spam, please let me know.
Thank you Nicole for doing that. Well done and appreciated. And to echo Anthony, it would be a shame to lose this forum.......Warren
Thanks again Nicole!
Thanks for all the support!
That is great news.
Great News Nicole, if you need any help let me know
Nice work Nicole. Thanks for your dedication to the forum...it's in good hands!
