Just like car dealers, I see they've moved into used kitchens now. Who'd want that? Bleurgh

You can have word filters, that should already be built in, so that URL could be added in the short term I think?

I think the boss is away, otherwise he'd likely have sorted it by now. I don't remember seeing a holiday request though... Typical :roll: :P

I think the option that new members cannot post until their account is verified is a good option

Yes, a potential 1 or 2 delay while it’s waiting for an admin to deal with, but it will weed out any dodgy accounts, spam etc

It's a massive inconvenience. For the admins and for genuine new members to get rid if a few spam posts.

A massive inconvenience? other forums i have used have had this implemented.

From what i've seen there are more spam based posts than new forum members joining

Just about any half decent website nowadays that incorporates a nod to security requires verification when you register. Surely it can be automated to a high degree, and so cut down on admin ?

That's unfair, these are just kitchen fitters, and not proper joiners. :D
