This works if you know of the other spam before hand. But I know that I personally don't have this happen often.
(knowing of other spam at the time of report spam)

But also, I would like to take the time to thank all the mods for doing what work they put into this forum. I know that you often will have to deal s*** you probably don't want to.
So, Thank You.

^^They could do that if they knew it existed but that's not always the case.

Tommy did bring it up in staff so we looking at what we can do.

I like the idea of captcha but I think it'd become a little annoying for some of you older members. What I think would be best is guru's have no time limit or captcha, members have a five minute wait, and anyone under 500 posts have a five minute wait + captcha.

Before I catch flack for still wainting limit I want to explain how I currently understand things. It is my impression that your five minute (or six minute) delay for reporting is tied into any delays on PM'ing people and I don't want any liberties given to the proven members to be exploited by a spammer.

I agree, we definitely don't want spamming via PM to become an issue, so I think there should still be a time limit. Maybe 2 mins? That could be pretty manageable for members.

What do you guys think?

Oh and Celegorm, I've been to forums that have a captcha for everything, even searching the forum. I'm not sure if our version of VB has that capability though.
