    Default Do we need additional moderators?

    The spam is out of control.

    25+ right now, lol
    Just a suggestion.

    It really is bad and annoying.

    The forum needs an update and much better authentication.

    Years past I saw it worse than this. It comes and goes but nothing was ever done for authentication. The initial post should be reviewed. It's very distracting and viewers drop.

    No shit! That is ridiculous. I thought the spam on the V forum was getting bad lol.

    Agreed, there is an easy fix, we just need someone who runs things around here to implement them. Basically just better new member authorization, and review of new member first post.

    Of the admins on this forum, only 1 has been online this year (matts) aside from the "Moomba Press" account. The rest of the admins last time they were online was over a year ago and some several years ago. I don't think anyone maintains or actively tries to keep this forum up to date in regards to updates, better security and spam control. I'm not sure what all the Super Moderators can do on the admin control panel side but maybe they can fix this forum? It's a shame nobody really tries to do more for this place. It's like it is stuck back in 2010 vbulletin era.

    In the year 2019 we shouldn't be dealing with spam bots getting through. There should also have a much better interactive system in place for Likes, Ratings, etc so that this place feels more modern. I bet people would be more willing to interact then. We shouldn't have to jump through hoops and 3rd party hosting to upload images on a forum and use such archaic limitations such as 4 pic limits in 2019. Bandwidth and space is not a concern in this day and age and hosting is nothing for a company like SC. And for the love of god there should not be a damn timer on how long you can edit your freaking post!!!!! Just seems nobody there cares to run the social media aspect unless it's FakeBook, Twitter or InstaLame but I digress.

    it's been this way since I joined over 10 years ago. the spam comes and goes.
    admins have been pretty hands-off and get that I'd rather see skiers building boats than moderating a forum hence assigning moderators but of the current list of them:
    mmandly hasn't been on here in 2 months.
    moombadaze hasn't posted in almost a year.
    KG is active
    Doctrs is somewhat active
    boonejeepn is somewhat active
    berg is on here

    really need to boot a few of them and find a few more from the active members if nothing is going to change on the first post side. it's a process that should be reviewed every few years as guys move on, buy other brands(ya, shouldn't moderate a moomba forum if you own another brand imo and just get busy with life.

    I get it that mods arenít paid for their time and efforts. 1000% understand that itís the height of boating season and focus should be on boat time.

    I mod on another forum and itís often a PITA, but doing it helps make a better community experience.
