Reporting users?

Post by StormySkye » Sun Jun 19, 2011 6:31 am

Sorry if I've missed this somewhere, but is it possible to report users? The other day I glanced at the 'newest member' and thought the username sounded like one of the spam bots we had a while ago, so I clicked it and sure enough the interests were just inappropriate things I won't mention, and they were from somewhere I've never heard of, so probably not even real. They hadn't posted anything then, so I don't think it could be reported? Is it just a matter of ignoring them, until they post, then reporting a post?

YOu can't report unless they post. Just PM an admin.

Saying that, I don't see why it matters if they don't post?

Yeah it wouldn't matter if they didn't post, I assume, I just thought in case :) I dont really know about bots etc, so I assume they can't give viruses just by being members? (I'm so bad with technology, I wouldn't know lol)

They shouldn't be allowed to list in appropriate things as their interests?

You could always let FRA know by PMing them with the username so that they can look in to it.

There shouldn't be any spambots at all but no matter how hard FRA tries they somehow keep getting through. Hopefully with the new forum this won't be a problem anymore :D

As far as my limited knowledge on computer stuff goes a spambot can't give you a virus, if that is its intention, unless you click on a link in its posts.
