Removed a thread naming a player, accusing him of cheating and listing a bunch of hands to try to prove it. This is against the forum rules - not only you can't name a player and start a public trial in the forums, it's also not allowed to list his boards and call for public analysis to try to prove something damaging to that player.

Removed a series of spammish posts promising a free event with prizes and asking for user's personal data.

Agree. My upvote for this action :)

Removed several spammy posts advertising a bridge lesson. Thanks to everyone who reported those.

Removed a few ads for what appears to be virtual clubs, from posters with no prior contributions to the forums.

Just to satisfy my curiosity, was this a result of something BBO sent out? The find a partner forum went from 0 activity to suddenly a dozen or more new posts in a day, these virtual club posts included. Often you get an influx of new forum posts if something interesting is featured in the BBO newsfeed, but it wasn't there..so wondering where they all came from.

[OK, it's in the newsfeed now.]

This might be the cause:

latest Bridge news said:

Last month Tihana wrote about finding a bridge partner. Some of you asked how to do this on BBO; if you feel like playing a pair tournament and none of your partners are around, go to the tournament's Partnership desk to add your name, or invite someone to partner up. But if you're looking for a steady bridge partner check out the Looking for a partner section within the BBO Forum (you need to login with your BBO username and password to post).

Yep, one of the newsletter got a lot of questions about how to find a partner (in general, not just when trying to join the next open pairs) so we mentioned there is a subforum for this.

Also, hijacking the moderation thread is funny :)

It appears that we are self moderating now. Am I alone in thinking this post is inappropriate?

It does look as if nobody will read or reply here.
But did you try to report the post as inappropriate?
I have always had a quick response, although they often don't agree (fair enough) and it's some time since I last tried.

Barry and I are still the moderators. We tend to notice \reports or messages faster than comments within a thread. Already removed that post and suspended the poster yesterday or the day before.

I did see the report. As a male, I didn't feel confident in my assessment, so I left it for Diana to review. When I saw that she hadn't noticed it for a few days, I brought it to her attention.

We don't login to the forum as often as we used to, so there can be delays like this.

I reported it the day it came out - unaffected as I am by my pronouns.

As BBO starts using more types of bridge robots, we updated the title of the GIB Robot Forum to BBO Robot Forum, and also tweaked the description accordingly.

@ pescetom hope you are pleased now :)

Thank you I think it's a step in the right direction.
Hope it can now be divided in subforums for each type of robot plus one for generic discussion of BBO Robot direction and issues :)

The non-GIB tourneys are still a tiny fraction of our offerings. We felt it wasn't worth subdividing at this point.
