Hiya is there anything the forum guys suggest about stopping the spam sign ups and posters? Not sure how you have the forum set up but the should be a way to stop it? Double opt in maybe? Haply to help figure it out as web is my business? But lots of people can get put off by the spam posts

Hi Sarah!

I personally apologize for the spam. Sad

We're actually looking to switch forum platforms (eg. VBulletin), as this particular one (myBB) has gotten ridiculously spammy...I admit that it's become quite the full time job for our team. It annoys us as much as it does y'all.. Trust me.

We can always use help, though! LOL. Feel free to email us at info@em2wl.com, or me personally at kiki@em2wl.com - I'd love to hear your ideas. wink

Oh fab vbulletin is a way better forum! Yeah that will certainly help the spam - and yes if it annoys me I can only imagine how much it annoys you! I admin'd a forum for many years with thousands of members and staff using vb it was brill. I will drop you an email when back at work thanks
