Thanks.

Rob,

Thnks for the response.

What happened, was that I tried to renew my membership, but I think I had the same problem as spencels, when you try and renew, I got a message that the email and password were already in use and I had to create a new account with a new nickname and email address, when I used these I was able to access the database.

I now have 2 accounts masm1 and masm2 how do I cancel the old one?.

Thanks.

That would not have been necessary if you had logged in using this account and then selected the renew subscription option!

I have now transferred the subscription to this username masm1 and deleted the other.

How do I renew? Do I need to re-subscribe? A "renew" button would be good. Many thanks in advance?

Why do you think that calling it "Renew", rather than "Renew Now", as it is at the moment, would be better Question

I think that the post was more for including the link than a genuine question

Yes it's a spam post. Is there a way to report these? I looked for a 'report post' button but couldn't find one?

Yeah, I decided against a "Spam! Spam! Spam! ..." post, just in case it was genuine, but given that the user joined today and was asking how to renew, I doubt it. There doesn't seem to be an easy way of reporting a post like this, but it's been dealt with now anyway!

I think only mods can report a post.

Now reported and hopefully soon banned.

Yes, poster kiahua looks like a spammer, their IP address is in Pakistan.

This forum uses data from StopForumSpam, and I've submitted the details of "kiahua" i.e. username, email address, and IP address to the StopForumSpam database.

Thanks for pointing it out. Thumbs Up

If you spot a spam post that hasn't been blocked within half an hour then it's probably best to drop us an email or send us a tweet :D


For info: When we 'spamify' a user account the process automatically sends the relevant info (username, email, ip) to Stop Forum Spam.

As the spammer had only made one post, I didn't think that it was necessary to worry too much as it would be picked up later on. I used my own stopforumspam API to report the spammer.

Any chance that you could look at a way of adding a "report post" or "report user" button so that a general tweet could be spent as well as an email to all of the admin with the name, email address, ip address, etc of the user? Thumbs Up
