Hey guys, spam has been getting out of control around here behind the scenes, as users, you don't see it, but the mods do and it's like 50 threads a day. They were autodetected and hidden, but we still had to delete them .. so I've installed some new more powerful anti-spam stuff. If you notice any of your posts not getting through, lemmie know! :sweatdrop:

Hey Seth, in the Tanked forums, sj1 created a new account and posted for the first time, however, I noticed his post was "moderated" even though it was a legit post. I had to manually approve the post. I didn't understand why it was moderated, however, I just saw your announcement so wanted to let you know.

Is that a good thing if a post gets "moderated", because it seems like a good thing. Sj1 is a nice guy he should become a mod, you guys should try to ask him. I know that he doesn't want to be a Moderator, I think he should. Try to ask him, but I know it's your decision and not in my hand to choose who gets to be a moderator. He is a good guy. He doesn't talk to people that much, or I think that's me he doesn't talk to. It's your choice, @play you ever gonna talk to me or are you just mad at me?

Ah, one of my posts didn't get through, and it said it had to be approved by a moderator. I think it is because I put a link in it... Anyways, I posted it in the Growtopia forum. Can you help? It's nothing too important, I just wondered if it was because of the new anti-spam feature.

Sure, I'll go take care of it :prophet:

After a few posts it will start letting all your stuff through.

EDIT: Hmm, I didn't see anything, another mod probably already approved it

It's automatic isn't it? I think the mods should look at the posts and approve the spam management, but I like the idea, the auto spam.

Ah, now I know it is because of the links. I put a link in my post again, and had to wait for a mod to approve it. I'll try not to post links in my posts then, just direct them to a website, ahah...
