It's definitely making it difficult to follow up on posts, when there are new (bogus) posts every day. Depressing, when you're interested in reading other posters' follow-ups.

Too bad, I really like this forum.

I think most of our admins are in deer stands right now.

I had moderator privileges over the "Hunter Heath and Fitness" board in the old format. I notice that I now have them over the whole thing, but I suspect this was just an oversight during the changeover. I've deleted all the spam on the fitness board and actually deleted some of the stuff on other boards. Then I began to think I might be overstepping my bounds as I have not been given any direction to do so.

I'll do my best to keep my little area clean and I'd be happy to do my part to rid the other stuff, but I'd like the blessing of the admin first.

delete away JPH!! I can't believe our admins will be upset at somebody willingly volunteering to help them out... We really need to have some kind of filter, I guess it'd be kind of crappy to have to do one of those verification deals each time we want to post, but i'd be down for it if it meant we actually had our forum back...

I would like to agree, but your course is the better one. Ask first, then install a simi-auto delete button! and fire away. ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
