Guest users - PLEASE DISABLE (or at least, restrict)
« on: May 19, 2023, 12:17:33 pm »
Please will Arturia Admin reconsider their decision to allow posts by guests? Or at least restrict where guests can post?

I've just spent half an hour deleting dozens of spam posts individually across multiple subforums, all made by the same guest account, some made as replies to existing threads, some with their own thread. I probably haven't even found them all. I cannot delete them all at once when they're posted from a guest account. There's nothing stopping the same guest posting more crap again.

I've never seen a forum like this before, where any random Joe who is not necessarily even an Arturia product-owner, can post to just literally anywhere they please on the forum without their posts needing to be approved by a mod. Even enthusiast-ran forums have tighter restrictions on spam posts than here. But this is the public-facing forum of a commercial business. It's beyond crazy.
