Neal,

I have enabled "Approval for 1st post". That way, I get to see (and approve or not) all 1st posts and can easily delete the spam. Everyone else can get on and enjoy the forums (hopefully) spam-free. :D

Cheers,
Ian

Anyway, yeah, I don't know why they do it. Yes, they're automated spambots but still, I can never understand why people go to the effort of setting them up. It would be much better as Ian says to set up a nice website and get Google to advertise it. At least that way, people might think that it's legit. When I see these posts on forums the words "spyware" and "virus" always spring to mind.

Good idea.

The only thing is, a first post that needs approval might put a lot of new people off registering. I still think it's a good idea, but there are always flip sides to every idea, and just thought I should point it out.
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

You may well be right. But if people genuinely want to get involved in the discussion here, it think it's a very small price to pay. And they will then get the benefit of a spam-free forum.

Cheers,
Ian

We've had it at the college for (blimey!) 6 years now and it has been part of our construction syllabus for the past 5 years. and i'm still in the WTF!! zone too. But with the aid of forums like this and recently unblocked youtube at the college I am beginning to find my feet...haven't been caught out by too many students...yet.
Am now trying other part of the suite out now - would like to get more into structure and MEP . Inventor is pretty cool too. Avoiding 3DS for the moment...way too scary.

Three weeks, and really liking it. Previously AutoCAD (not since 2004 though), Vectorworks, and most recently Microstation ADB SS5

Glad to hear you're liking it after 3 weeks- just wait until it's been 3 years!
