Renaissance Art again.

The report to moderator button seems only to allow 1 report per day?

I have done a bit of cleaning. Please remember to use the report to moderator link when you find spam, it makes it much easier to remove.
Thanks,

In an effort to control the spam I have added more anti-spam and anti-bot protection. You may notice "challenge" screens when you connect to the forum through services that use a proxy (AOL and Blackberry come to mind). This is because proxy sites are magnets for bots and spammers to connect through so connections from those types of sites require more stringent measures. I apologize for any inconvenience and here's hoping it helps!

Please let me know either through this thread or via PM if this is causing problems.

I've been trying to help by reporting spam when I find it, but there's an 80 second wait time to post reports. It makes it really frustrating. Reporting spam only takes a moment, and if that limit were lifted, I could report probably every spam in a morning within that 80 seconds, and that includes posting the reply that its reported. Is there any way to lift that limit, or does that just invite spam to the mods?

Some of the anti-spam measures may be causing a small number of users issues connecting to the site. If you hear of anyone having problems please let them know they can email me at support-at-renaissancefestival-dot-com and I will do everything I can to get their problems resolved.

Also, I am still tweaking settings trying to find an acceptable balance between protecting the site and keeping it as usable as possible.
Thanks,

Tom
