    Hello members,

    After watching this forum degrade to become a spam estate where every spammer on the world felt the need to drop their viagra and ugg links I decided to take it over from the previous owner. eForum is now under a new owner and things are going to change around here!

    Over the last couple of months I have been busy cleaning up spam and I must confess the level is by far the most I have ever seen in my life and I have been around a very long time :eek:

    Just to give you an idea

    spama.png

    and that was nothing!

    There will still be some trolls hiding somewhere but my eagle eye will find you!

    You might have also noticed some unnecessary forums have been merged together for easy navigation and accessibility.

    Another change that has been introduced is member levels, the higher the member the more privileges. For example any new registered user (new member) cannot post links anywhere on the website. Literally speaking, you will have to earn your way up the ladder to get these perks! no exception :p This will not only deter spammers and link dumpers but also encourage an healthy forum.

    Zero Tolerance on Spam: Spam = Permanent ban

    Moving forward, I will be asking some top notch internet marketing sages help engage in the forum and share some of the best kept internet marketing secrets here and you should check back often to not miss out!

    eForum will be changing to a fully fledged internet marketing forum. Those close to me will know I have an unorthodox method to internet marketing and the argotic blackhat white hat balderdash does not apply to me! This is something that gets under my skin when someone says I only practice white hat seo:confused: say that again? white hat seo o_O I don't know what planet you are in but that simply does not exist.

    We are all marketers and what we do is market. How we do it is entirely up to the arsenal of knowledge you are equipped with and this is where this forum comes in. We will be equipping you with that knowledge.

    With your help, I want to make the forum about internet marketers that do and will doing this via case studies and live experiments. Together we will work together to demystify all that surrounds internet marketing.

    Now it is too early to start promising the world and untold riches buried at the hidden depths on the internet but please stick around and I assure you will learn something new.

    Yours,

    Samuel :cool:

    This sounds good. Will you be issuing any FAQ's for those of us not familiar with this site?

    Lenny,

    An FAQ sounds like a great idea... So, I have created a thread (here) for you and other members to put forward a list of questions you/they would like answered or think others may need to know about.

    Hey @Julie Nice to see you back at the forum! Welcome back :love:
    Hi @Adondeirhoy trophies run on cron job about every 15-30 minutes so it might take a while for the trophies to register. If you having problem still, post it in the bug section and I will take a deeper look but for now, it is working as intended. I put a lot in place this time to deter spammers, I got my eagle eyes on:cautious:

    Got it. Yes they now appear. Glad to see you have the eagle eyes on. Forums are like a nest for spammers.

    Thank you @maryannballeras
    The spammers are gonna have to be invisible aliens with 20 hands and technology not available in 1000 light years to get through my spam block! :LOL:

    I got my eagle eyes on them and I am also utilising some of the best spam prevention add ons available on the market :cool:

    I am glad the design is appealing to users and feedback has been mostly positive (y)

    Well done! Anything that gets rid of these pests is most welcome. It's beyond me how spammers even think that anyone buys as a result of their actions!

    I'm still noticing some spam. Hopefully you get that taken care of. I cannot stand when boards become full of spam and little else. This is a very nice, clean looking, quickly functioning board. I like the discussions here as well. Hopefully you can keep the spammer out, because you've got something good here that I think can expand a lot.

    You are quite welcome. I'll be sure to take another look around and see if I find any more spam lingering around. It's really the only thing I can complain about in regards to this forum. Keep up the good work.
