new thread does not appear...

Hello,

I started a thread in the "Managing and Running a Hosting Business" section but when I first posted it say that the thread was created but it does not appear...

After that I posted again and the forum tells me I have a duplicate thread which still does not appear...

After an hour I tried again and it says it was posted and then it does not appear

I know there is a restriction on the Offers and Requests section to wait for 3 days, but it does that o the normal sections too??

humm... even normal sections have to be reviewed by the mods before posting?
Wouldn't that slow down the forum by a lot?

It is to prevent spam I suspect. You can thank all the spammers for that. I own a couple of high-profile domains with forums. You will be surprised at the amount of bogus, spamming email registrations that I get per day. Some can even make it through!

Yeah I own quite a number of forums too but using phpBB.
Even after installing the image verification, spam checks its still a whole lot of spam to filter.

I wonder how many people actually bother about the spam threads...

I saw spambots software which can pass through GD Image verification. What we did on my forum, is to keep moderating and banning IP Addresses. It helps to a certain extent, but another of our solution (Was to place a category called spam, and let the spam bots spam in there) worked, and we often just empty that forum [Most of the times, such spammers have nothing to do, so just create a forum for them, and they will spam in there]

but i agree with you that regulars here can help moderate the forums.
