I just have a small question I was wondering about. How do you cover up your email so that not everyone can see it?

There's a setting on your profile page that changes that. Under "Account Related Settings" click on the "Hide email address from public?" check-box, and click on the "Change Profile" button at the bottom of the screen.

I can help with that. I just checked your profile, and it was hidden. It shows when you look at it because it is your profile. Hope that makes sense.

Just curious, are there any plans in the works to help prevent spammers? A captcha or two, maybe? Can't post until email address has been verified? Or, I dunno.... anything, really? ^^;

Trust me, we want to fix it as much as you do. As mods we don't have that privilege. There is a captcha already on the registration form, but bots can pass that on the highest setting with no problem. Email verification would be a good next step, and I've found a simple verification question keeps most of those bots stumped.

I haven't seen Redwall Abbey around lately, but we'll try to get a hold of them as soon as possible.

Ahh, good to hear. I experienced a few minutes of pure, unbridled horror when I saw the adult link, haha. Here's to hoping our admin pops on again sometime soon. ^^;

Another question: is there a way to report specific users - or really, can you guys ban users? It probably doesn't make a huge difference for the bots, but getting rid of the spam accounts themselves might not be such a bad idea - especially if they link to inappropriate content. So if there isn't an automated way to report user accounts, would we be able to PM or email a mod or something like that?

Again, unfortunately, we don't have privileges to do that. Next time the admin comes around, we can ask for the privileges to gag or ban users, so that we can at least prevent their username/email/IP from being used again. For now all we can do is delete the spam as we come across it.

Just wondering where the introduction thread went? I've looked in all the boards but I couldn't find it. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

As it states in the rules, if you see a page that's nothing but links or check the link's address and dinnae recognise it as something with Redwall or somthing that's ok, just don't click the link.

I have a question; is there a place for a body to introduce oneself?  I am sort of at a disadvantage here.

There used to be two threads that I knew of -- but one appears to have been deleted, and the other looks to be locked. I haven't a clue why, though! D:
