  • any idea's on what todo here plz?

    just a few idea's on what todo here would be good please.

    one of my members have gone onto another site and posted the link
    to my forum and a few members joined from there spamming ect:
    the members are just downing my site which there is nothing wrong
    with if you ask me.

    we have had at least 50 members join in the last month from there site
    promoting porn ect:

    i have kindly emailed there sites admin several times to remove my link
    and they just will not do it.

    question please, is there anything i can do about this, its driving me

    this is the site i want my link removed.

    Get another active moderator and set up better censorship.
    The link to your site is also in directories, search engines, and people's signatures. You have a public web site, people are bound to link to it. I ould just try to do some more indepth moderation and ignore that it is linked on their site.

      ok man thanks for the advice, the members joining from there site are using there same names to show us its them thats the part i hate, the censorship is set up pretty good and we do have pretty good mods and the spam does'nt stay there long. i would just love to remove my link from there as the admin sux.
      but as you said ignore it and it all should blow over. the funny thing is the member that promoted my link was banned for promoting it, but still the admin leaves the thread active.
      anyway thanks again man cheers.

        Throw that part of the name in the forbidden username list, or word censor, just to make it a bit harder for them, the more time they have to take to figure out how to register and post, the less "fun" it becomes for them too.

            Yes I'd just moderate/delete everything they post and wait until it's not fun for them anymore. Not much else you can do, I think you shouldn't need to ban the member that posted the link also. If a community can't take a link to another community with a "" that's not a worth community in my opinion.
