Re: Changes to the forum to tackle spam!

I noticed too but
1) there is something being done about it though we're not going to be told exactly what.
2) at the moment won't stop the die-hards
Still, lets see how it goes on during the next couple of weeks but lets continue to flag as soon as possible.

They are even on this section, and when you see them all I tend to just mark as read and move on so folks will be missing out on help!

Re: Changes to the forum to tackle spam!

I note that a lot of the spam has been from users registered before the changes looks like a good cleanup of the user list is required
ABS@O2 Could we have a flag option in the user profile so we can flag all the suspicious users.

Re: Changes to the forum to tackle spam!

Thanks everyone,
I've noted some suggestions you guys have made on this thread to help us tackle spam. I'll forward these on and will share any further updates to improve our forum environment.

Re: Changes to the forum to tackle spam!


I have seen posts from America & Spain requesting help on how to get started with O2 when they arrive in the country.
No doubt the number of similar valid requests will increase as we get nearer to the holiday season(s)

I did say "I would suggest this would affect a very small minority group and should be an acceptable inconvenience."
The big picture is more important than the very small minority that would be affected.....I'm sure O2 could forgo a few dozen (at most) foreign users that wish to have an O2 connection for a couple of weeks.
