Banning Record?

Unread post by parametric » Tue Apr 17, 2018 1:50 pm

I just Banhammered new user <Louisrof> - who had kindly posted links to pornographic videos here.

He was Banned just 6 minutes after he joined. ((i)) ((i))

I had one earlier that signed up and posted when I was logged into the admin area so he/she/it was banned almost instantly :)

Great job though guys. Often when I get a notification that a spammer has posted you lot have already dealt with it. Best moderators out there ((i)) ((i)) ((i))

Use the BANHAMMER function, that removes the links and unwanted posts all at once.

This banning is now locked, but the link remains, because the BANHAMMER was not used.

Well, sort of ..

I really wish we had more active members join the forum instead of the jerks trying to promote something without any interest whatsoever.

The die hard memebers (at any skill level) we already have here keep the wheels well lubed, a great thanks to them. ((i))

Yeah I think the distinction is between "active" and "members". Most of the new members are genuine. Although the sign up is automated I still do regularly go through them myself, checking ip addresses, emails etc.

People may join and not post simply to subscribe to threads that interest them. They then get an email when those threads are updated.

Others may join so they don't miss any competitions we might be running. We have one coming up soon :)

So not everyone signs up in order to actively take part.

We have though had quite a few postings from new members over the last few weeks. The thing is of course to make sure their posts are answered. They often come here because they don't get an answer anywhere else. That doesn't mean of course that WE have the answers they are looking for but as long as we make them welcome to the forum and help where we can that's all we can do.

Forgot to mention. Yamaha are now actively trying to persuade people NOT to join independent sites like ours. I guess their own sites are feeling the pinch ;)

VERY FRIENDLY . . . . :x

I don't think most musicians will take kindly to "the corporate hand on the collar" in this manner . . .

People will go where they find their interests are "best served", and THIS FORUM has no worries

on THAT score . . . ((i))

perhaps "other forums" would do better to examine their own"user experience" and see if it need improvement -

rather than resort to coercion of this sort?

Very true Chris. People will go where they can speak openly and in a friendly environment. Yamaha won't tolerate any sort of criticism on their own forum and people cannot pm each other. Not that we want to be critical but people do need to be able to air their thoughts and if they are not happy with a product surely it is reasonable to allow them to say so, take it on board and sort the problems out?

I also just noticed they revamped the front end of their site and if you scroll down you see this "unlike unofficial sites, yamahasynth.com has the Baddest Mister in town!" As if that is a reason to join :twisted:

The guy absolutely knows his keyboards but he can be a bit of a curmudgeon and doesn't tolerate novices very well. Maybe that is where he get's the "bad" in his AKA?

Anyway this sort of approach has not stopped the slow decline in their user numbers. I have been checking their stats and it's a story of consistent decline whilst we are heading in the opposite direction ;)

Very cleverly put.

The "Unlike" usage as a VERB is kinda RECENT - probably invented by FB, to nicely "pair-up" with their <LIKE> button?

So in THIS context - it sounds like an order to disassociate from "other" forums.

I would suggest it is merely pointing out that Bad_Mister is ONLY on their Forum (and therefore NOT on others . . . .)

VERY open to reading it wrong (IYSWIM)

The question is . . . . . . Was it INTENTIONAL (as opposed to accidental)?

Hmmmmmm.
