admin help needed

Went to new posts and saw all the spam. On my break, don't want to take up the whole thing just deleting posts. Can someone just click something like 'delete all posts from this user'? Wasn't sure if your tools were any better than mine.

Did a lot of cleanup. Someone with admin privileges, user "andbabydolls" needs a permaban for excessive spamming.

Done. That's the second bot this week someone let by.

I just realized I can delete stuff, am I some kind of mod? :-P I must not be paying attention...

I think everyone with trusted access has mod permissions.

Guys,

You who approve accounts need to be way more careful in that approval process.
Please make sure you read the statement on why they want to join.

For example - The automated email for this user (Andbabydolls) said:

Code: Select all

Hello,

A new account, owned by "andbabydolls", has just been created - you should
check the details of this user (if required) and handle it appropriately.
The justification they gave for their activation is as follows:

Cheap Moncler jackets on sale at MONCLER Outlet,Buy discount Moncler jacket
from our shop is you best choice! Wear the MONCLER jackets is comfortable.


That does not even remotely look legit. Please ensure you read the email, and do not just approve the users blindly.

Remember - Only you can prevent spam!
