    I'm not on FB, but I'd wager that its Alan Sansome. Some other Mojos around here should know for sure.

    How many users in this sub-forum use any others on Bike Mojo? I've poked around a little bit but found the other forums to be so stale it wasn't worth posting in.

    Every once in a while I'll check out the bikes and parts for sale sections, but that's about it...

    Only an admin is going to be able to fix this. If the admin or admins are no longer interested in maintaining the forum, this type of spamming is going to continue, and moderators will have to continue cleaning it up when spam pops up on the 'Austin VooDoo" forum. Fixing this requires deleting the accounts that are spamming, manually validating new accounts (to verify they are not from the typical countries generating spam, and that their IPs and email addresses aren't in existing spam databases), and optionally installing a third-party module that prevents known spammers from even registering for a new account. I'd also require posts from new users to be manually validated until they've accrued a small number of posts (say, five). There are other things that can be done as well, such as installing a captcha for registration, adding topical questions that need to be answered during registration ("How many wheels does a mountain bike have?") to slow down bot registrations, etc.

    The forum software also needs to be updated, it's nearly five years out of date now.

    I've been running a much larger forum for nearly 20 years now and have had to deal with this issue repeatedly. It's very rare for spammers to get through on my forum, but it does require more active measures than what's taking place here. I'd be glad to fix this if I was given admin powers.

    Just in case you were wondering the bots want to sell you fake US college degrees, at least the Chinese ones. The Korean bots apparently want to tell you about horse racing in Seoul.

    Today is the first day that I've seen the spam posts in Austin Voodoo when viewing the forum through a desktop browser. Up until now I've only seen them on Tapatalk.

    I was wondering that actually. I guess we all seem like we need a fake education around here. Glad to hear that I won't have to pay for college for my kids and can spend more on bike parts.

    I've never use the Tapatalk app, only mobile and desktop browser. Seen them both places. You must be timing it right during the many wookie purges.
