Hi there, I've only just realised you have a moderation queue for parts of the forum. The text for this was small so I didn't notice it so apologies for submitting multiple posts in the Welcome thread.

Not a concern. It's odd (and unintentional) that the icebreaker forum has to wait for post approval and elsewhere does not -- still working out the kinks it looks like :)

Welcome!

I figured it was to prevent spam and other crap. Didn't bother me at all. It's a feature, not a bug.

It will be in your forum based permissions set Christian. :D

It can be useful sometimes but forum trolls are better off being banned rather than sent through a moderation queue where they add to the time of running the forum. There is a good spam controller that Christian could link the forum to called Stopforumspam.com which will weed out most of the trolls.

You can't ban a true troll. They just join again and again. Using a different IP

I took a look at phpBB forum add-ons, the bottom two look quite promising and are still supported @ Stop Forum Spam http://stopforumspam.com/contributions#link_phpbb

Thank you Andy F! I'd been building up blacklists and this is a huge leap forward. In use as of 10/29 13:30p PT.

Christian,
Thank you. I'm certainly glad to hear that and very glad it helped save your time, they have been halted, as we've all noticed.
I thought you did something; I wasn't sure.
I don't think I've seen any spam/bots for nearly 2 weeks.
For a moment, I thought you were going to moderate my posts :lol: but, I really try to help others. Yea, I've been a busy one here, but starting to slow down.
There are a lot of good things shared by many here. I give kind thanks to you all.
