It seems too easy to create an account. Not that many members are actually logged on at any one time. Most are "guests".

A new account needs some sort of gate-keeping feature instead of being so easily mis used...

My $.02

This poor forum currently has no less than 12 spam threads, all by different "new members." https://www.camaro6.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=224
I agree, its just going to continue to get worse. Either they need a heavily encrypted way to sign up or just hold off, but I'm guessing they don't want to shut the site off to potential real members. We are in a tough spot for sure.

That sounds like it would be an awesome idea!! I personally just reported about 4 or 5 of those stupid threads started that are not in English!! Just a bit rediculous and outta hand..

+1. Good idea. I share everyone's frustration but one thing you shouldn't do is repost links to the spam postings. I do think this thread is a good location to air our grievances and make fun of some of the weird crap those bots post.

It's dis-heartening to see all these spam threads that still sit at the top of numerous forums and have been there for days and days.

They have gone unreported? They shouldn't need to be reported. Is it too much to ask for a moderator glance at the web-site for about a minute and immediately recognize spam threads? They shouldn't have to be reported if they are that obvious. Each one takes a full minute to report by a member. For a moderator to look at the whole web-site and see these takes about ten seconds to recognize all of them, yet that must be a bridge too far.

Again, I think this whole spam thread issue is hopeless, especially when no moderator even takes the time to glance at the web-site.

I'm not to certain what that answers are here, it is 100% disheartening to see whats going on. I do believe the mods are doing all they can, but when you put it that way maybe there needs to be more action. I spend too much time reporting than its worth, but I don't want to give up yet.

The spam has gotten so far out of hand on another forum I'm on that the admin changed new account creation to requiring mod approval before you are allowed to post.

I’m a moderator on 67-72chevytrucks.com and that’s exactly how that admin has it set up. They have to be manually vetted before they are givin permission to post. It’s a lot of work but helps keep the spam BS way way down.

Pretty quiet lately....

Just tried starting a new thread with a boring topic of advertising in between posts....lol

Got a message that "thread can't be posted until reviewed by a moderator"...

Probably a good idea and perhaps the reason the spam has been quiet lately...
