spam in the photo gallery?
« on: February 24, 2008, 21:54:18 »
Just went to check to see how the pics and votes are doing for this month's photo contest and noticed what appears to be spam photos posted in the Contest Folder.  Is this a typical/regular occurence?  Is there not a way to have it so that you must be a member and logged in to post pics?

Hmmm, hadn't seen that before. Might be time to lock down upload privileges if it becomes a problem. Thanks for pointing it out.

Maybe then, Mike has surreptitiously banned all of us mods from the gallery?

Why do you assume it's all the mods and not just you two? 

Thanks Mike ;)

Mich, just curious as to what photos you think are spam?  I just looked in this months submission folder and don't see anything amiss.  Unless Mike deleted them, of course.... ::)

Yep, they were definintely spam, and I deleted them. Links to other websites.

Also: I know there's a problem with some DS and the gallery... I've been unable to solve it so far, but will continue to work on it.

Did you vote while you were in there? (hint hint...the kid in the Navy League uniform is really cute  ;))

Is it a higher being saying that they shouldn't be mods?  Just kidding!!  But would that help fix it?  Take them off as being mods, see if they can access it, then reinstate them.  Or maybe they should just create a second account.  No harm in that, is there?! hehe

lol, thanks for all the helpful advice Mich. ;)

All kidding aside, it is a problem with group membership in their gallery records, and is tied to being DS. I've come that far down the road at least.
