    "Go to:

    admincp > usergroups > usergroup manager > registered users

    scroll to the bottom of the permissions page and you'll see "Groups Permissions"

    Select "Yes" where it reads: Follow Group Message Moderation Rules
    If no, messages are always placed into moderation queue "
    That's already set to yes. I've checked over things several times and really am not sure why some posts keep getting moderated and some don't.

    We'll keep looking at the options.

    Yes, any that are "moderated" just means they're queued up for us to approve. The trick is figuring out why so many are being flagged.

    Do you use a spam filtering addon to VBulletin? These can flag posts based on the IP used.

    This continues to be a problem on this forum. The settings are too restrictive. I had another post moderated.

    We're trying to find the good balance.

    It got to a point where the forum was virtually unusable for us due to all the spam. It would take hours every day to clean up.

    Blocking foreign IPs has helped alot but we're still trying to cut it down to a reasonable level.

    This weekend was especially bad for spammers over on a forum I help admin...

    We finally just disabled new registrations for a while to keep it down...

    One thing you could do is not allow the page to load from someone using its IP address. Make the use of the dns name mandatory. Use vhosts and send the ip to blank page. Im pushing my forum group to do this also...

    Of coarse you can check this by changing the ip address of the forum and see if the spam subsides for a bit till the bots find it again...

    Well this is just wrong... I spent 2+ hours writing out some 'how to guides' only to have them go into moderation hell.

    I tried to post a guide on how to wire your whole house to your VoIP adapter... after I got the moderation message I decided not to post my other how to guides.

    The others were on twisted pair wiring and their color code, VoIP and security systems, and VoIP and 911.

    I can't get a 'how to guide' posted but every spamer in Russia can open a new thread.
