Topic tags/keywords: question

Is anyone else here receiving emails with a link to what the email says is a private message, but when you get there all you have is an error message from Lumberjocks saying there is an error and they are looking into it?

Not sure where else to post as I created an account yesterday but still unable to post to forums. I’ve messaged Lumberjocks twice, but no response. Can anyone help? I keep getting the message “You cannot post a new topic until your first post has been reviewed and approved”. It’s been almost 24 hours now. Really frustrated.

I got your post, Ross; can’t tell you what is going on. Did you post under “new forum topic”?

hang tight the reason for this is to try and keep the spammers out, this forum was getting hit with hundreds of spam a day.cricket the moderator takes care of a few forums so it might take her a while to get to you.

welcome to lj’s,it will be worth the wait.

All things considered the spam PMs from this list are pretty low volume, credit to the moderator and systems.
Here is a new one, below. According to the email, this was the message link but I didn’t look this one up. The rest of the email is about a “3D printer for wood” and a link to a different website.

I include the message id it refers to in case this is an account to look at.

best thing is too report these spam emails to cricket and she will get it removed.
