Guys, please don't blame the admins for this. this is a forum at the end of the day which means that anybody can join and anybody can post. This forum would not be what it is today if we didn't have that type of privileges.

A possible fix for the issue:
Any new members who are trying to join should have to answer a question as to why they are interested in joining the site, and admin can vet them before they are allowed access to the site.

Alternatively, a rule for new members posting where the post gets vetted by admins before it's posted.

Regards,


Its a good suggestion, but where are the admins? They used to be here all the time a few years ago. Members report posts and literally nothing is done. People send emails and they never get a reply. Sealine admins dont get paid to operate the site and we get that people have lives outside of Sealine and life gets busy sometimes but lately its looking like they left the building altogether.


There are admins. but their hands have been tied. No administrative authority. Only Emps can do something about anything.


Howsit Bennie
Howsit Ouens.... there are admins yes!!
As said we can’t do what we would like to make it better!

I am one of the admins here as well as the FB page, and have put a few silly/stupid questions in so that the “knuckle-heads” don’t just jump in and post spam.
That being said I don’t add people who Don’t answer the silly questions asked.
Yet I see they may/might be added by “other” admins!!

(just saying)!

I do know that admins and mods cant do anything on the site anymore.I also know that its because that time reefman left and deleted all his posts to start his own website that all the access/rights was removed.
But I also do know that one one or 2 idiots need to click on those links or for someone else to pick up that spam can be posted for free on the site and you will have porn sites being posted what then will it also be here weeks after it was posted.This site is being used by kids how will you feel if your kid sees porn because he was on sealine?Do you want to tell me nobody has contacted Emps? Where does the "report" button go? I have now stopped pressing it as its purely a waste of my time as NOTHING is done.

If Emperor was contacted and nothing is done about it then I think its time to move on...

Lots and Lots of posts are gone / removed - not only when those left... Even some my stuff in 'collections" are gone, I think they changed servers ?? I cannot remember or that was the theory at the time, if you look at UA - it's really dead, 1 or 2 posts per day...

Is there not one person here that knows EMPS personally?
can no one speak to the man directly ?
All he needs to do is allow other admins to have more -power-.... and swelect a few more that are more active on the site..

the only thing troubling you guys are the current spam.

just deleted 4 treads now.
about 30 odd for the week so far.

again, we can only delete them.
we cannot ban the users.

we do not have the fights like in the old days.
thus we do not need another 10 mods.

I will see if I can hold of emps and see what he advises.

will keep you guys updated.

I disagree .... some of us login here daily
Some are on all day
Some of us are in different time zones the world over. We are online when you are asleep !!

Don’t think one person can run a factory !!
It takes teamwork and dedication !!
