Holy rusted metal Batman! how is that even possible, there must be some kind of quirk there. How do we find it?
Can we revisit the idea [Link] of only requiring 1 mod's approval to promote someone out of "New Members?" I initially said 5 approvals was too high, and ineffective against the spam we were facing at the time. [Link]
Since I sent this message to the admins and they confirmed this was the problem, I haven't seen any spam on this forum.
All the spammer accounts seem to have a version of the default Twitter profile pic. Are they circumventing the "new members" group by logging in via Twitter?...
I still think 5 posts is too high. It has recently caused some aggravation for me [Link], and I'm sure it's even more troublesome for new members.
I realize the forum is close to being moved so this may not be a high priority, but it should be a simple change. (If not never mind.)
