Re: [INTRODUCTION] Greetings from the crow's nest

I added a tag to your post [INTRODUCTION], as we like to see here due to the fact that we don't have specific "areas" for specific topic areas.

[2018 Predictions] Mark Coker's Predictions for 2018 (CEO of Smashwords).

I posted this over at CS and it disappeared. Whether somebody reported it as spam, or the mods just got over-zealous, who knows, but here are some rather scary predictions about 2018 and indie authors.

Re: [ebooks] Microsoft ebook store

Thank you, Kay. When I looked around there I did notice that it's a Windows 10 thing.

"Download ebooks and read anywhere on any Windows 10 device with the Windows Creators update."

Re: [ebooks] Microsoft ebook store

Can we have the link, please. I Googled it and came up with pretty much nothing except information that indicated that the Windows 10 Browser - Edge - had it. I only have Windows 7, so maybe I can't get there from here.

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

One has to be a moderator, which Walton - the "owner" of this forum - can set you up as. I only wish that banning a poster would automatically delete all of that person's posts, but it does not, the moderator has to click approximately 4 times on each post to delete it.

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

I just spent more than 30 minutes deleting over 2 pages of spam and banning the folks who posted those spams. It is obvious to me that no other moderators have been in here since yesterday morning. I will not spend my time deleting 2 pages of spam again. If this forum is going to exist, then it need...

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

Yes, Joe, you are so correct. I deleted the 2 spam posts above yours and I banned the member.

WALTON:
Let's take Joe up on his offer to help out here. Now, with the spam increasing every day, we need more help.

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

I just came in here this morning and found more than 25 spams - all submitted by a mere 4 users. I banned all 4 of them and deleted their posts. I am getting more and more frustrated as it appears that you (Walton) come in here only about once a week. You did not bother to answer my question, you di...

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

Okay, I managed to ban all 9 of them. My suggestion is that you look at all banned members registration countries and just make membership from those countries impossible. The members banned today stated they were from Burma, Afghanistan, Russia and more. My idea is to make membership possible only ...

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

There are 9 spam posts this morning and I am not sure that I have time to deal with them - today is a busy day. I'll do my best. I am getting really tired of the amount of time that must be spent getting rid of spam though. It takes WAY TOO MANY clicks to ban a member and get rid of the thread.
