From time to time members of the Mod Team get approached by very new members with questions and proposals. Sometimes these are just new folks trying to understand what's okay and what's not going to the ones whose job it is to make those sort of decisions, and that's just fine. But other times they're trying to sell us something, get the forum involved in their private projects, and generally muck with things for their own personal gain. Some are outright scams. We deal with each sort appropriately. But what we can't do is see into anyone's PMs unless they either include us in the convo or hit the report button. There's been an uptick in the problem PMs lately, so we'd just like to ask that if you get a PM request from someone you don't know asking for something unusual that you're not really comfortable with, don't be afraid to hit "report". It'll help us sort out the malicious actors that are attracted to a community such as this. Thanks!
