Signatures and Homepage URL's disabled for New Members
#1
We have been seeing a minor increase in spam account registrations lately. They don't post many threads, but they like to add websites to their signatures and Homepage fields...hoping that we will look at their profiles and see the URL's. To combat this, I have set the forums to hide signature banners and homepage URL's until a member has 5 posts. This shouldn't affect any regular members but if any new members ask, please relay this information. Members with under 5 posts will be greeted with a polite notice when they update their signature banners. They can still add signatures and see a preview in their control panel, but they will be hidden on the live forum until the post threshold is reached.

If you see a suspected spammer, hit the report button or PM a staff member with their user name!

Thanks!

I think that's wise Barry... I've seen some suspicious new members arround but with my luck of language, sometimes i just dont understand what some people are trying to say in their posts...

Any resolution to keep our site clean and focused on our cars is welcome for me

Thanks!

Yeah, I noticed a few new members where I wondered "What are they here for?" :-)

At least I didn't see any spam for Viagra or growth hormones. That's just awkward!

Yeah, we don't need no stinkin' Viagra! That's what V8's are for. Cool
