New G+ community rules

Hey all. So I have officially hit the switch to make the following changes to the All About Android community here on Google+

- This community is meant to keep discussion on topics from the show. This means that general links to stories/videos that don't inspire discussion will not be posted to the public at large on this community.

- All new posts to the community must be approved. I'm afraid as to what this means for moderation. If you could only see the amount of posts that never made it to this community due to automatic Spam detection, let alone the posts that do... it's a lot to manage. I'm hoping it ends up being relatively easy in practice, but we shall see.

- New members must request to join. Part of me hates to do this. I like things to be as open as possible. But it's very obvious that many posters have no post history and hope to simply pass links to their spammy content around. No more.

One thing I don't have the time for is cleaning up content already posted here. We're talking years of spammy posts and each one takes 3-4 seconds to remove, with dozens upon dozens of daily posts... that's too big a hill to manage after the fact. I had hoped to go through and wipe things out to clean up the landing page here on the community but it's overwhelming. So it'll just have to be a "going forward" sort of change. Unless you have any ideas for wiping out content faster than that? It doesn't seem like G+ makes it super easy to do it quickly. Bummer.

Crossing fingers that this improves things around here. I'll be paying more attention here too. I miss you guys.

I just went through and reported about 50 or more of "AppReview Transfer" posts as Spam as well as reporting the account as a spammer. If any of you can do the same, maybe this account will finally be removed and the posts removed as well.

+Jason Howell Somehow, Google is bound to notice this one eventually.

Question for you all

So OBVIOUSLY this Community has become overridden by spam. It's been that way for a long time. I don't have the time to Moderate it, at least not the way it is now. I'm half inclined to change the moderation settings on the Community to have to approve any post to appear here to control it before it gets as noisy as it has been for a long time now. But I worry about the amount of noise I will have to sort through in order to find the handful of posts by actual AAA fans here. But I REALLY want the community to be useful for you all...

One question I have: Posts with videos/articles/etc.... Basically this community is like 99% filled with these kinds of posts. Would you consider those to be spam? I guess what I'm wondering is there ARE some times when actual community members want to share a link or video... But that makes it hard to determine from a moderation standpoint, without spending all day analyzing everything here, what is spam and what is actual content. Should I simply assume that anything with a video or story link is spam and keep posts here 100% discussion based? It's a blunt force object but maybe that's better than what we have?

Open to ideas. I miss you.

Hey Guys. I'm way overdue for an upgrade with my Moto X (2014) on Verizon. I'm at the point where I need to have it hooked up to a charger, otherwise the device will die out, regardless of battery status.

I am seriously eyeing the Pixel 2 XL, as I would like to get timely updates and don't plan on upgrading every 2 yrs, and the recent screen issues don't seem to be much of a turn off for me.

I know the OnePlus 5T just came out, but I dont think those devices work on Verizon. Do you guys have any other suggestions?
