On February 24
, we released some new security measures to reduce spam on your Ning Network. As we've written about on the Ning Blog
, these new measures will help us to stop spam before it starts. I'm going to provide a bit more information about what we'll be doing to eliminate spam on Ning.
As a result of our increased security measures, some members being asked to fill out a CAPTCHA
when they post content to your Ning Network. It shouldn't take more than a few seconds for these members to fill out the CAPTCHA, and your members will only have to do this once
. We know that some members may run into difficulty filling out the CAPTCHAs on your Ning Network, and if your members are unable to complete the CAPTCHA, then they may be asked to verify their email addresses
before they can post to your Ning Network.
If you don't want your members to see any CAPTCHAs on your Ning Network, then you can turn on member approval
. If you have member approval enabled on your Ning Network, then these added security features won't have any impact on the way your members access your Ning Network now.
While we're excited to release these new security measures across Ning, we've already gathered a lot of data from you that is helping us to get spam off Ning. Of course, you can keep using the suspend for spam feature
on your Ning Network, and keep your Ning Network safe from spam!
