I have had to make it so members are approved before joining. They also have to answer a question about zines. Some spam factory has found us and are creating profiles like crazy with links embedded, so it doesn't show up on the daily activity. I banned about 40 last night. Let me know if you see any.
If you are not a spammer, but do not have any info about you or your zine on your profile or if you only upload pictures of yourself or just link to some webpage, you may be banned. You can contact me if you are accidentally banned and I can unban you.
I am bummed it came to this, but I guess it just shows how much traffic we are getting and how high up we are in google rankings. Thank you.
