In Topic: Not admitting new members to Forums?

16 February 2020 - 10:27 PM

I've rarely used http://forums.rootsmagic.com/ because of login problems but they now appear to be resolved.  I realize what a problem SPAM can be to web managers.  On my personal pages I control SPAM by simply not allowing comments or accounts without my personal approval.  That's probably not an option for a website like this. 

Still, I'm with everyone else.  FB has so many limitations.  I can't <CTR> F to search the page for words, phrases, or uses comments.  Forums have the neatest way of organizing subjects whereas FB is chaotic at best.  For my personally, using FB as a replacement for a user forum would be like taking all my printed genealogy, tossing it in front of a powerful fan, pickup it up again, then stuffing it into a large container.  After doing that, finding my pedigree would not be a simple matter.  I've found FB to be a lot like that when searching something specific that I once saw on a genealogy page, or a DNA research page, or a family research group, or -- now let me see, which was it?
