  2. Spam User

    Alamy, I received a 'personal' message via the forum from a 'user' with no posts. It looked very spammy and a quick search of the Internet confirms this. Please remove the account and tighten things up accordingly. Thanks.
  3. Spam Words in the forum. Bug?

    Hello, I'm new in the forum, and I struggled quite a lot with automatic spam words in the forum. I was receiving error selating to Spam Word XXX, where XXX was a numer, the last 3 numbers of the current year 20 16. I can't write it togheter otherwise it's considered spam. Same for another number, now I don't remember which one. The problem is that being a new user I was trying to understand what could be the spam word I was using. First I tried to count the words. In example SPam word 017, and I was looking for the 17th word and trying to delete it. But it didn't work. Then I though it was a numerical reference to a list somewhere in the regulation, but I didn't find any reference of it. Then I lost over one hour cutting and pasting just portions of my message to understand what was the problem. In the end I had the illumination that spam word XXX, the XXX was actually a number, and was consider to be spam itself! I have to say that's a quite srange and confusing behaviour, and I guess it's a bug, because I don't see any reason to block some specific numbers, in particular if we are speaking about the current year!
  4. Bug with Spam Words, new user

    I've originally posted the message here http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/5303-spam-words-in-the-forum-bug but as suggested I paste it also here, in order to give visibility to the matter
  5. How to get rid of Spam

    To prevent spammers getting acess to the forum, Alamy should only permit contributors with images in their portfolio (e.g photographers), to use it. Anyone with no images should be barred from joining. If necessary, Alamy could also set a 'minimum number' of images, say 50, before the forum becomes available. below this number, contributors should be aloud to read to forum, but not contribute to it. I am not trying to exclude people,I'm just trying to propose a resonable way to exclude spammers from disrupting it.
  6. We have a number of measures in place to fight the attack of daily spam we get but despite all of them, occasional posts still make it onto the board. For that reason we now have a new rule where your first post on the forum must be approved by a moderator before it goes live. This will be for your first post only - after that you are free to post as normal. This means that for new sign-ups, there might be a slight delay in seeing your post live, especially over weekends where our moderating cover will be limited. Many thanks. Alamy
