So did the forum owner just give up?

Postby TheTrith » Thu Nov 20, 2014 10:31 pm

I know its the off season, but man, this place has turned into a joke. Front page is a wall of spam threads, there is zero traffic, and nobody seems interested.
Sad that we have to go to the Rotoworld forums to have any baseball discussion whatsoever.

I'll try and keep Leftovers & Classifieds clear of spam but it's overwhelming everywhere else. Don't have a clue as to when the site will change.

It shouldnt even be on you to clean everything up... the owner has to take a little initiative if he wants the site to remain viable.
Hope I didnt come across as as being critical of you Ayebatter. Totally not my intention.
We were told the site was being upgraded months and months ago, but it seems like its too late for an upgrade to matter. Zero traffic, and the forums are impossible to read. Frustrating, because the few people who were contributing regularly provided better insight than just about any other fantasy baseball resource Ive come across.

Do most forums have spam filters? Or are they generally ineffective?

No harm no foul & Mookie cleaned up Leftovers & I haven't a clue as to the spam filters but it's been ugly for months. ;-D

I have been a member for a decade. It used to be if you posted anything that was not exactly under the forum category it was booted immediately. There used to be pages of hot stove discussion. Now the site is filled with spam and no one participates except a handfull of die hards. Too bad, FBC was a good site to get your off season fix of baseball. Now it is a shambles. Hope it gets fixed soon.
