Regular visitors will have noticed ever increasing amounts of spam on the Trading Gurus Community Forum. On November 24th 2012 we implemented some changes:

1. New users will be moderated 2. Registered users who have a post count of zero will not be able to view attachments or download code. 3. Registered users who have a post count of zero will not be able to create a new thread

As an additional countermeasure we anticipate introducing a modest paywall in the near future.

If this is your first visit here our apologies for the inconvenience.

Existing users may wish to contribute their ideas to this thread.

Thread: Anti spam measures. Is a paywall a good idea. What else might work?

    Seems not too many people tried to post since 2012.
    Anti-spam policy seems to be very eficient : Now the forum seems to be very calm!

    Hello,

    I noticed this recently, if a new user signs up, how are they to make an introduction thread ? Without the ability for zero post count users to post a thread, it seems to be a dead end. Perhaps lower that restriction for just the introduction part of the forum?

    Regards

    Have you ever thought of getting in contact with the forum owner somehow? Spambots aren't very good at that sort of thing!
