It's been happening since before Jan with other usernames.

If only you could report posts without having to open every single one.

This problem is getting out of hand. It will be the downfall of Sealine if it continues unchecked. Admin PLEASE do something, even if just deleting the posts??? There are posts and usernames, eg Hongwei28, that have been reported many times and there is just no action taken???

Some of us still enjoy, support and contribute to Sealine on a regular basis, to me this lack of communication and action from admin is a slap in the face.

One way could be to block copy and paste function on Sealine
That may reduce some spam

Because nothing is happening to the spammers they will now start to post so much that the only thing sealine is good for is looking at SPAM.

Guys, please don't blame the admins for this. this is a forum at the end of the day which means that anybody can join and anybody can post. This forum would not be what it is today if we didn't have that type of privileges.

A possible fix for the issue:
Any new members who are trying to join should have to answer a question as to why they are interested in joining the site, and admin can vet them before they are allowed access to the site.

Alternatively, a rule for new members posting where the post gets vetted by admins before it's posted.

Regards,

I was thinking along those lines as well... When I joined one of the other forums (think it was boatfishing) I had to ID the fish in their logo before becoming a member. SL could do something like asking what the common name is for a Cape Salmon... And if you're not from round here, give them the chance of mailing the mods for the answer... Just a thought.

Its a good suggestion, but where are the admins? They used to be here all the time a few years ago. Members report posts and literally nothing is done. People send emails and they never get a reply. Sealine admins dont get paid to operate the site and we get that people have lives outside of Sealine and life gets busy sometimes but lately its looking like they left the building altogether.

I would gladly accept any form of admin on this site.This is super annoying.The wealth of knowledge on this site,would be stupid to let it all go to waste...Even if its just being able to delete threads and ban those involved. I have A LOT of spare time and Im on the site daily.Any one else willing to take on the task as well?

THEN make one or 3 guys ADMINS that are currently on the site daily... the same 50 odd people are on this forum daily.... choose a few people and sort this BS posts out before the last remaining faith fulls also jump ship..

I said in another post i cant seem to find exactly this will happen.

Because nothing is done they will start to post more and more. Today 10 out of 14 posts today is now spam. And wait its still going to get worse.

There is allot that can be done but I am sorry to say Emperor have left the building. This post is a obvious outcry by the last people still actually using the site and not even one reply from Emperor even acknowledging what is happening

I also think we need more admins/mods with more time or energy to police the site. People who still enjoy the Sealine experience compared to other social media platforms or forums.
I don't mind to be told to take a chill pill, maar as ek nog meer hengel gaan ek letterlik nie meer vriende of familie hê nie. Dink ek push al reeds die boundaries.
Willem die "slap in the face" gedeelte was dalk bietjie drasties, maar ek dink nogsteeds die punt wat ek probeer maak het is van toepassing.
Wat gebeur as 'n user begin pornografie of rasisme of enige ander onaanvaarbare ding post? Gaan dit ook weke vat om die user te verwyder? Of selfs gladnie verwyder word nie?? Ek probeer nie baklei nie, maar ek wil nie Sealine verloor nie en hierdie probleem is groot genoeg dat mense in beheer 'n tydjie kan afknip om dit te probeer oplos.
Dankie vir die moeite om die posts te delete wat jy sover gedoen het.

Houtarm, maybe you should take the family and friends out with you. Get them hooked and you will have lots of fishing buddies. Make the circle bigger.

Sealine will never die because you will always have your memories and the knowledge you gained from here, and I'm sure you have met decent people here too.

Spam is annoying but once it's gone, you will always find that something else will turn up and make you mal. It's life mate. Do what you can to the best of your ability but don't let the kakness get to you. Life is way too short. Go fish. You could be doing a lot worse with your life

There are admins. but their hands have been tied. No administrative authority. Only Emps can do something about anything.
