I know there’s been a problem recently with accounts spamming on the forums. I wanted to let you know what steps I’ve taken to try to address this.
- Threads will no longer automatically lock if there are too many flags. I want the forums to be a fun and friendly place and having threads locked due to flags is no fun.
- I’ve increased the trust level for being able to flag posts. One of the problems is that new accounts are flagging a lot of existing posts that don’t need to be flagged. You now need to be trust level 2 - Member to flag other posts.
I will be watching how this works and will make adjustments as needed. Thanks for your patience through all this!
