Anti-spam: blocking links
December 13, 2016 04:45AM
Apologies for this change, it's going to be annoying for regular posts as well.

But I'm blocking "http" entirely from posts, so if you (as a regular, non-spamming person) want to post a link to a resource somewhere online you'll need to drop the "http" bit from the start of the address, and it won't be a clickable link.

So instead of a full YouTube link, for example, do just this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7ZU3pxs8G4

...anyone who wants to see the link will need to paste that into a browser.

Yes, this is ridiculous, but I'm hoping the volume of junk will drop off, and give us more time to figure out a better solution.

Rob

It's all good if it means getting the forum back on track. I know you guys lament a lack of posts but I have so many questions and I only held back because I didn't want to swap the board but now that I know you want queries then I'll gladly throw all my questions your way.

Removing "h.t.t.p://" from the URL to the picture you want to upload will allow the picture to be shown directly inside your post !!

Good measure. But it would make much more sense if you'd add some captcha to registration or add some tricky questions related to music.
