    Still plenty to do but it's shaping up.
    Add to Sean's "honey do" list.


    1. Correct the Logo - "connecting you with god" - upper case G - or better yet, Connecting you with fellow Baptists.
    2. Close the ability to post in the Archived section... check the last post in the top thread from the old C and E forum, "Jesus doesn't believe..."

    I agree with Deacon and would add:

    3. Make the Archived section searchable. Right now the search function seems limited only to the threads posted since the new system installation.

    4. Connect clock time to a U.S. standard - it's almost 5 AM as I post this.

    If one logs in, one can change the setting to local time.

    I would vote for GMT as default for the international visitors.

    Sean, what has been happening here cannot be allowed to happen again. Put some kind of stall on any new folks becoming members.

    Can there indeed be a waiting period until an Administrator here approves new members? Membership should not be automatic. What happened several hours ago was disgusting and alarming. Safeguards
    have to be put in place. Make this a priority Sean.

    I just wonder if the new ownership really cares. Lots of evil taking place since they took over.

    I was just looking at the members online list, and you can see the guests and what forums they are viewing. There are NINE, again NINE, registering. It's going to be war people.

    No, it's not. If this keeps up the Baptist Board will go the same way the old Fundamental Forum went when the new owner tried to turn it into a profit machine. The forum died and was replaced with the "New FFF" run by members of the old forum. And the guy who bought it, and killed it, ended up in bankruptcy.

    If the porn continues on this forum it will died the same horrible death as the old FFF. :(

    I agree with the lowercase g. I hate when people use the lowercase.

    Did you alert the staff when it began?

    SR was on top of it the minute he realized it was going on, and in just a very short time had it removed.

    Let's give the staff a hand on that one.

    Sadly, this kind of thing can happen, and no stops are going to prevent it.

    So the "fix" was already in place, and Squire Robinson deserves a thank you.

    Who said this?


    God bless.

    I found this mess when I logged on this morning. Being in Europe it was about 0200 EDT and I had the poster banned within seconds, but the mess he had created took a while to clean-up. I finally realised we had a 'spam clean-up' tool the damage had been done.

    I agree that something needs sorted. This happened a few years ago. I think they purposefully do it in the middle of the night hoping no one is logged in to catch them.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    I've seen this before on other forums and it is doubtful any check other than requiring admin permission to post images and videos will stop it altogether. I wonder if that would be ok with everyone? Any link would have to be approved before it is posted, which would allow for banning if anyne tried to get that kind of garbage through.


    God bless.

    Before I go to bed each night I check the BB... See if there are any new post up or post one that has been on my mind all day. I see a poster had answered one of mine, so I took a look... Well I don't have to tell you what was there... You know porn!... So I reported the post!... This was 10;30 PST... I check a few more and reported the post... When I backed out to view the forum every post I could see on here was affected... I didn't answer this poster as that's what they wanted... I ignored them! How to fix this I have no idea?... What I felt like telling the poster is I don't come on your site and post my belief in my God so don't come our site and post your evil images of your father the Devil!... Oh I was sorely tempted... But I didn't!... Brother Glen

    No, it wouldn't be OK. Why ruin the posting privileges of people that have been here for a long time just because someone can post as soon as they are registered?

    I favor limiting new members posting abilities to the New Members forum only, for the first 10-15 posts. Spammers are not going to slog through making 15 posts in order to post something objectionable. Limiting their posting ability to the New Members area would make it easier to monitor new members. New members will be forced to make coherent posts in one area for a couple of days or longer before they could post elsewhere. I'd say that would cut down on 95% of spammers. They just don't have the patience to wait out these restrictions.

    I wish there was a site where this fellow could be confronted.

    Was that am or pm, Glen?

    God bless.

    That's a good idea. There are forums where access is more restricted. If I remember correctly post count before being able to post links was higher as well, and this should be able to be set in the Administration Board f this Forum.

    But what about the guy that is willing to get his count up and then blaspheme Christ with this kind of garbage?

    Administration is not going to be able to stop that guy. So let's just be thankful that this kind of thing is a rare occurrence.

    The suggestion was to point out that in order for the request to be met, that would mean those restrictions would affect the regular members. Having to get approval for a link would be very inconvenient, though one bright side to that might be one would have longer to consider what they post before posting it.


    God bless.
