Need some advice...
I've had spammers create accounts to spam members through the private message system.
Since they know most admins are ethical and wont read private messages its a perfect spamming route.
Once several forum members warned me of this, I turned conversations off on the forum.
Unfortunately, when members tried private messaging each other, they were sent to a PAGE NOT FOUND PAGE when they clicked on the MESSAGE button on a users profile.
So they used the Activity box below instead, as a form of private messaging. Not realizing its in plain sight on the activity page.
No one on the forum has ever understood what this activity feature is and it confuses people.
How would you solve this issue???
Issue 1) No one knows what activity is or how they are supposed to use it.
Issue 2) Spamming through the message (conversation) system.
Open to ideas. Thanks!
