    We have been getting hammered by spammers and it is possible it was deleted by mistake. I don't think I did it, but I could have. They really seem to target the canoe forum for some reason. Sorry if we did, post it back up.

    again, we are doing our best to keep the porn and trash off the site.

    So that's why Stid has been workin the swing shift around here
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Yes, us canoeists know that being the first forum, alphabetically, is a two edged sword. I have a guess as to why: The simplest of the spammer bots and bot-helpers that spammers use find that forum the most easily merely because its listed first. So we get spammed more than most.

    View counts aren't necessarily a bad thing right?

    Site hits equals revenue!

    Not sure if its aesthetically workable but a forum that starts with A or B could catch most of the bots, say Botcatcher forum. Then a script could be run to delete everything in that forum daily. Just a thought, I'll go back to my near lurker status.

    Default New forum called "A place to practice"

    That has been brought up here before, as a possible solution. Not sure I've heard mgmt's take on it either.

    Myself, I think it would partially work, but only partially. If it were combined with a forum-type that actually had some use to members, that might make this particular glass (solution) half full instead of half empty.

    Like if the forum was "A place for New Member Introductions" or "A place to practice posting text, pictures, and embedded vids" or such. I'm positive the wording could be improved, but of course the key is for the first letter to be "A". Maybe "ABC's of posting to these forums" ?

    I think it's a misperception that the canoeing forum get spammed more than others. When the spammers are active, click on the 'new posts' link at the left side of the green tool bar, and you'll see them posting spam across all the forums.
