Exclamation Looking for a few Spam Sweepers

There has been some interest in the amount of spam we have on the boards, and some have asked if they could assist.

Here's a chance to pitch in and assist Polyamory.com in keeping the Spam where it belongs.

We're looking for a few people interested in becoming Spam Sweepers. Their role is to assist in sweeping the forum for spam and keep a watch on the reported posts. Sweepers will have limited Mod permissions for the purpose of spam control, focused on getting the spam out of the public eye as quickly as possible. The idea will be to un-approve spam posts that make it through the filters until such time as a mod can clean them up, or to approve legit posts that accidentally get caught in the filters.

The upshot? Be an anti-spam hero for the forum community and get the evil unsolicited advertisements away from the rest of the members.

The downside? You'll be able to see ALL the spam...not just the stuff that get's through the filters. Fair warning.

Anyone interested in helping out...can contact me via PM.

Thumbs up New Sweepers

We've had an excellent response from the Community with regards to this issue. We're still taking it one step at a time, so we're starting with the first four who expressed interest, and see where that takes us.

Sweepers:
  • Polyq4
  • Nycindie
  • LovingRadiance
  • Emm

Thanks to all who volunteered to assist the community, and I hope everyone will show the sweepers the support they deserve for taking on the war against Spam!

Thanks for accepting our offers to help! It's a learning experience already, now that we can see all the spam that is being automatically filtered. The spam that slips past and everyone can see is but a small fraction of it all! Wow!
