You may or may not have noticed that we have been a small problem lately with people signing up seemingly with the sole purpose of posting links to things that absolutely nothing to do with Doctor Who, or anything else under discussion on the forum.

We will are trying to keep on top of removing it & the people concerned, but we ask that you all keep your eyes open too. If you see anything you consider to be spam that hasn't been dealt with let one of the mods know & we'll get onto it asap.

Thanks for your help  Smiley

Send one of us a PM telling us about it, or just do what TC did & post 'Spaaaaaaammmm!!!!' underneath it - that ought to do it  Wink

There is a 'report as spam' button as well but I'm not sure what happens if you hit it - I'm going to guess it sends us all an email though as that's what happens when the 'report to moderator' button gets hit  Smiley

We've been having a major attack on another site I help run - over 300 accounts sending spam.  Must be something in the water.

Hi,

I've deleted the offending messages and warned the member concerned. If it pops up again give me a shout and will deal accordingly

Just to let everyone know that hitting the 'Report spam' button at the bottom of the post does indeed let all the mods know of it's existence, so if you see any hit that & one of us will deal with it.
