Hi,

This has went from 0-274 in this time?

Actually there were hundreds more; I forgot I cleaned them out between 20-Sep-2017 and 28-Sep-2017. Said another way, the 274 pages of requests are just since the 28th of September.

Hey shipo,

To make sure I'm understanding this correctly, these 275 pgs of "moderated linkbacks" are essentially just the URLs of posts/threads that people are clicking to use as a link? Like simply copying/pasting the URL from the address would do the same minus all those moderated linkbacks you've been going through?


If my understanding of the situation is correct and if it's possible to remove this, would you agree with that so that this can be avoided in the future?


Thanks,
Nate

Hey Nate, I'm not entirely sure how the whole LinkBack thing works; when I first became a moderator there were over a thousand pages of requests and I gradually worked through them all until September when we had an explosion of requests. I would love to somehow automate the process or otherwise correct the situation as it seems the process is being abused by one or more members.

To be honest, Linkbacks are a feature I am unfamiliar with also. I can bring the techs in on this if you feel its an issue that requires more attention

I'm not fully understanding the need for the LinkBacks or why and how the requests are generated. All I know for sure is there are times when the backlog of requests grow at a rather prodigious rate.

What is interesting is, I'm a Global Moderator on another AutoGuide.com forum which doesn't even have the Moderate LinkBack requests option. If that's an option for this site I'd be in favor of going that route.

Here's a quick update: the page count for outstanding requests has grown from 274 to 283 in the last 24 hours.

Thanks for those details, shipo. I've alerted the techs and put in a request to see if this can be removed as it seems redundant. I'll update you when I get more info on this.

(Edit: ticket 2780085)

For now, leave the linkbacks requests as is so our techs can see the growing numbers.


Cheers,
Nate
