    Please, consider implementing one or both of the following procedures for filtering out trolls and spammers. 

    • A working phone number required on signup. 
    • A waiting period for admins / mods to approve new accounts.

    Thank you.

    I think a working phone number may not be reasonable because not everyone has a cell phone. A waiting period for admins or mods to approve new accounts would make more sense. But that could definitely delay the time of new members to participate.

     

    I was thinking of invitation only...like only people that are being invited can join the site?

     I'm pretty sure if you don't have a working phone, then chances are you sure as hell don't have a working computer either; and in turn have no way of using this site anyway.

    I'm down with the mod approval method.

    I wouldn't worry about making users wait to participate. If I can scroll twice and see posts from three weeks ago, nobody is obviously missing much.

    Whats the poent in admin approval ?
    How he/she gonna check me ? Based on what ?
    That never stoped trolls or spamners... Or phone number.

    I agree that site needs to be free from idiots... but thats really, really hard to prevent. You can only remove those people.

    What's the point in admin approval? 

    Maybe the fact that they can see the first thing you've done is upload a ton of "shit" porn to your profile under a random-ass name, making them able to decline you from the site instead of making your profile viewable for everyone else. 

    How is everyone going to check you? Based on what?

    You're not a troll making 10 profiles at a time, that posts literal "shit" porn as you wish. That's a pretty clear signifier.

    What I'm trying to say is: 

    I think there needs to be an approval time. 

    At most, 24 hours with all the benefits of editing your profile how you wish while it remains unenviable to the public until an admin has approved it. 

    This way, there's no time wasted for the individual (their profile should be all ready to go public when the approval comes), and also it cuts the literal "shit" posting down a lot by at least 24 hours per account creation. 

    Is it a perfect solution? No. But it's better than logging into mr "gfgkfkgfgf66657" posting the same skat pictures on 10 different accounts. 

     Additional edit:

    I'd happily volunteer myself to be a mod of sorts to approve accounts and dealing with the horrible shit posted. I'm pretty sick of having it on my feed, I spend too much time on the web, I might as well spend my time doing something to make stuff better for others here.

    To be fair, I don’t have a phone but I do use the internet lol. Also that wouldn’t work. It’s very easy to get working phone numbers from apps, and you can get a new one at any time. I use them to sign up for other sites.

    Also lol, you can thank VF users for inheriting Max, the literal shitposter. Tho this is nothing. Wait for him to post actual child porn.

    . . . Yeah, mods might want to get to doing something before he gets bored of scat.

    Wait a second...
    Admin aproval means that admin needs to aprove accounts before they are active. So you cant post anything until you are active member.

    If someone is made to wait before they get their gratification in posting poop each and every time they needed to make a new account, I'm sure they'd get quite bored after a short while.

    They can edit their profile and upload their own photos of themselves and whatnot. 

    However it doesn't go viewable to the public until it's approved by an admin.

    Yes. Its a good idea for photos , to be approved before posted publicly...
    But its a lot of work and we dont even know who is administration here and if it is one person or more , and when they are here :/ not much I guess considering the other day when that idiot posted all that shit everywhere, in photos , forums, groups... He had a lot of time for that.

    I like the layout of the site. I think once all the new members, castaways if you will, from another site I will not mention get their bearings, this has the potential for being a rather happening place.

    May I ask why my other account was deleted please? My conduct cannot fall against the rules when clearly two people were in exchanging jabs.
    It would also be nice to have better communication between the Admin, the user and the infraction committed as well as a which should include an appeals process.
