Maybe we should think of a way to address these advertising/phishing/spamming posts that pop up every now and then on the forums. Even though they are clearly identifiable as such, I feel this could give a very bad and mistaken opinion of the website to someone just discovering it and seeing these posts.

I'm confident that they are deleted as soon as a moderator sees them, but we could try to prevent them, maybe by reviewing the first few posts of a user prior to their publication ? Don't know if it's doable or if it would be too much work for the moderators ?

Anyway, keep up the good work !

Something along those lines is indeed planned.

But what about my fake drivers license or visa?
