    DefaultRequest for JL members to help moderators

    Re: moderating -- Garth and I identify a lot of spam posts by clicking on "New Posts" near the top of the JL format (in the dark blue band) and then delete them. Spammers often use distinctive usernames, currently those with lots of numerals.

    But those only show as a "new post" when a spammer's post is the last one in that thread. Whenever someone posts in that thread right after the spam, the spam post will be obscured by it so it won't show up when we click on "New Posts."

    So the only way to make sure we're eliminating all spam, we have to open each board/sub-board, then open all recent threads in it and scan through all the posts in each thread for possible spam. That process can take a LOT of time.

    But You can be a big help to JL in either of two ways.

    One is, when you see a spam post, you could refrain from posting after it until we delete it. That way it'll be very obvious when either one of us clicks on "New Posts".

    BUT, there's something even better you can do and you don't even have to refrain from posting in a thread.

    There's a small icon, a triangle shape with possibly an "!" in its center which is in the top right of the blue band containing each post's date and time. It's just to the right of the numeral designating the series of posts in that thread.

    When you click on that -- "report post" -- a message will be sent to Garth, Daniel, and me. Then we can rapidly identify that spammer's username and delete all posts it made. (Be sure to click on the triangle in the frame of the spam post.)

    Many thanks to all those who help with this.
