Member Contests & Challenges [Fixed]

by 6 replies
I know this has been mentioned before on the main board but spammers are going to the Member Contests & Challenges and finding old threads to put up there crap

Also the whole Member Contests & Challenges needs a good clean out , there are threads that are so old but some newbie thinks they are still active or close it and use the space for a traffic forum

    I agree with a good clean out, one recent post is on a thread from 2014. The OP is know longer here. Another is the 30 day challenge by Shay Rockhold. She finished here challenge here this Summer. Someone posted they are in recently. Shay will no longer be doing any here on this forum. So the last poster is out of luck.

    Maybe pad lock all of them and remove all but the most recent 5 threads to encourage future challenges.

    These are good ideas an we will be looking at implementing automatically locking threads in Member Contests & Challenges which are older than some specified date.

    Ok, I've moved all of the old challenges into a new locked sub-forum. That way everyone can find what has been done before and how it was done, but the main forum will still be clear and only contain active challenges. I think as long as we stay on top of it, this should solve the problem.
