Since the Feedback forum is no more, this will now be the thread for reporting canoes. Please post a link to the threads and the names of the spammers in this thread. Big thanks to everyone who takes the time to report Spammy McSpammers. Your help makes it easier for us to blow them out of the water!

You may also use this thread to request moderator assistance, such as updating a thread title or moving a thread to another forum, or to report forum violations.

A explanation on canoes for newbies:

With older GRM forum formats mods had to comb through threads for spammers, which took way too much time to do because of the number of spammers we got. There was no "report comment" button what like other boards have. The community helped out by flagging potential spammers with a key word, which the mods would then search the boards for. "Canoe" became the keyword to identify them. "Flounder" is a similar keyword we used for flamewars/flamebait/trolling... basically, Internet arguments gone out of control. Threads on religion, politics, and your favorite brand of penetrant/motor oil/etc. are particularly susceptible to becoming flounders.

Of course, canoe and flounder have become in-jokes. So are the filters for naughty words. You can figure those out by filter pwning yourself.

So if you find a spammer or someone who isn't playing nice with the community, please report them here. Mods don't actively go searching for every instance of the word 'canoe' anymore, so while its OK to reply to a spammer with 'canoe,' we may still not see it. Tattle on them here, and we'll make the decision on whether to banhammer them or not.

A question for the mods. I sometimes log in via CMS (the blue theme is easier on my eyes than the red). I noticed that the Sim/computer gaming section on the GRM side is not reachable from the top folder/forum in CMS. Is this just an over site or is it intentional?

So, if I use the "Embed" button and post a link from Gfycat, it shows up in my preview.  However when I post it I get nothing.  Is this on my end or site-wide?

For example, using this https://giant.gfycat.com/YawningRevolvingHoneyeater.webm

Preview:

and here's the embed:

 

Is anyone else having forum problems? It keeps crashing & reloading in the middle of posting and/or uploading pics.

I think it may be because I was trying to embed a twitter link?

Test:

Edit: Yup, twitter borks the forum.  Trying to embed that does the same thing.

 

In reply to Mr_Asa :

Can you post pics? That was breaking the board for me.

Two or three pics up from the bottom of this page. Unflattering, critical pic of Trump.

Personally I couldn't give less of a crap about it, but if you're going to have a zero tolerance policy then that doesn't only go one berkeleying way.

Please remove it and reprimand the poster, or else stop E36 M3ting all over posts making fun of the Democrats' side.  I truly don't care which way you play it, but have some berkeleying integrity.

Thank you.

[edit] Thank you for the immediate response. yes

In reply to Duke :

Picture deleted and I said something to the poster. I agree with the hard and fast "no politics" no matter what side it is. 

That being said, I am doing this on my phone, and had you not pointed out who was in the second half of the photo, I honestly would not have noticed on this screen. Doesn't change the circumstances, it still should not have gone up.

I'm not sure on the second one. There's a lot of comments going back years, and yeah sure all of them don't necessarily read the best, but it reads more like ESL or a younger person than anything. I only found 1 link they posted out of at least a dozen posts. I don't want to accidentally ban a regular user.

How about locking up the "Some of you may recognize this car..." in the main forum.  Guy is getting really and agressive and rude for no reason.  It also seems like he has quite a bit of interest in the selling of the old honda

Not a canoe, but whats the policy for people that just show up trying to sell parts?

Also, to be fair, the "ttt" post irritated me enough to make this post.
