Guest Posting Restored to "Getting Started"

Post by Aaron Robinson » 21 Jan 2008, 01:43

Because of the success of the anti-spam measures of the new Boards version so far, I've reactivated guest posting in the "Getting Started" section. Historically, topics originating from guest users have made up one-third of the topics in that section, double that of any other support section.

And if we start getting SPAMed in that section I'm assuming we'll close it to guests again?

Yeah, I'm with Nick. I really don't see it as necessary to begin with anyway.

Negative, we just increase the complexity for guest posting visual confirmation, form submit time....etc it's so so flexible now :rolling:

I am liking the new Boards minus the spam! Let's just hope that the guest posts are OK.

Yeah, those spammers probably quit now :D
I haven't even seen 1 spam post since the upgrade.
