Hi,

I know (and use) thread where we can report spam, but I have made a couple of anti spam solutions and they work quite simple.
Maybe you can add these in a future forum update.

- Don't allow links in the first 10 posts or so (this is the most easy to implement, not 100% proof, but it will help a great deal)
- Give some users a 'spam moderator' status with the ability to hide posts for review by admins ( not automatic, but easy to implement)
- Don't allow the use of certain words (maybe just for the first xx post)


I feel this will help a great deal in reducing the amount of spam.

Another suggestion that might help also is that when a user creates an account they have to provide a valid serial number of a DJI product along with the other required information.   This would make permanent bans more effective.  As is, spammers get banned and just easily create a new account and are right back to spamming the forum.

Good suggestions from both of you. Having some kind of word filter against those pesky Keto scams could help a long mile.

They did do an upgrade to the forum.
The error page that you get when you load too many pages at once is improved.
So maybe they have incorporated more.

Did he get spam via PM or some type of error message?

Not sure if they implemented anything new yet but this is 2nd day with minimal spam.  Hopefully, saying this doesn't jinx us and then the forum gets bombarded.
