You're not supposed to put the URL in that field. It's only supposed to be the username of the account associated with the YouTube channel.

@supersobes - The link that gets generated does not include the @ before the username, leading to a 404 page

Looks like few older accounts got hacked as they now started posting live dating sites. I'd check the site security, maybe force password reset for dormant accounts or something.

I've been pushing to have accounts with 0 posts that are older than 2020 deleted for a couple of years now. 🤷‍♂️

Thing is, the few I noticed had a couple of posts, from few years ago.

You only see the ones that had posts, you don't see the many more with 0 posts that we can prevent from posting.

Yeah, there has been a large number of compromised forum accounts over the past few days. Thankfully, many of them are still in the phase where new posts require moderator approval. However, there are some older accounts and accounts with prior posts that are being compromised.

If you spot anything suspicious, please report it with the report button. And please be cautious of links you're clicking on.

Technical question: Did anyone who has made the majority of their few posts in off-topic threads fall back into moderation after these were removed from post counts, or does the forum use total post count for this?

If you make posts in an area that doesn't count towards the post count you stay in moderation.

If you're already out of moderation then you will stay out of moderation. Newly Registered is just there as a filter between humans and spambots so once you pass moderation you can't go back into it (unless and admin manually puts you there).

During the maintenance break, one of activities was the statistics resynchronization. It may occure that the number of posts was decreased from some of you. It should mean making that number real.
But if any of you see that your number of posts is not real, please contact us via the email address mentioned in forum rules.
If you want to contact me, please send me an email. You can find it in my profile.
