I edit while I'm writing, I don't as often go back and edit after very long.  I wanted simply to be sure Andrew knew about the disappearance/reappearance of those two functions (modify and remove) which are now available and have been for the last day or so anyway.

Andrew, do you have to manually delete the spam? Like from the sql database?


What I've done before was find in the PHP the check that is done where it looks for the current user and adds the modify and delete buttons for them, and hard-code MY login name so I got those buttons for every posting. This was on a PHPBB, but I believe SMF is not terribly different.

Moderators do not have to manually delete spam.  The hole in the system is that there is no way for the forum to notify the moderator group when a message is modified after a few days.  The spammers do this:

Post a message that is on-topic for a thread
Wait 1,2,4 weeks
Modify the message to add their spam links

The only way for me to find a spam message that was made that way is the manually look through the SQL.  I have created some queries to help me find them, but it still takes manual checking.

Sure i like to post a pic every now and then that I think people might find funny but willing to let it go to keep some jerk from slamming us with crap we don't need.

After reaching 10 posts, the person should be able to post pictures and links.  Please let me know if you are now unable to post them, because it means I made a mistake in the permissions or other configuration when I made these changes.

I still can't post a link...
I'm really sad now :(

I don't know if you changed the settings, but I'm able to edit my posts anytime. That is very important since I maintain the halls for the two movie fame and shame games we play here.

Established members should not have a time limitation on editing their posts.  It's only newer members who cannot edit posts (to prevent spammers from abusing the function).

At what post count can you edit your posts?

Not that I want to spam or anything, its just that for example my Indiana Jones knock-off thread if I find some more I'd like to be able to edit the post so I can add titles to the existing list, rather than have a bunch of titles spread across a few pages.

It's at 100, because we were getting a number of spammers persistent enough to get past the new visitor status, then going back to edit their posts and add spam links.

 Bluesad Hi there, I still can't post any links. I read up and saw that I need to have made 10 posts (which I have) but its still says I can't. Is there a stand down time or something?

Hmm, I don't think I have posted it anywhere officially, but the magic number is 11 posts.  You should be able to post them now.  Email me or let me know if you still cannot.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
