Spam posted 02 Oct 2006, 19:10 by Sovin Nai, Site Administrator

I have turned off guest posting, and am working on deleting members who have demonstrated themselves to be spammers. However, when I delete the users, there may be residual posts left. Their author will be "Anonymous" Guest. These are not new posts, just leftover posts with no author. Let me know when you find them and I will delete them. Thanks for all of your patience. view post

so much spam in the off topic forum! it's so sad! -cries- view post

We just have to wait a small time for Entropic to visit the board then things will cool down again. view post

Actually I hope he heats things up with the hell fire all mods posses. view post

Nice one Harrol view post

I truly hate this infernal spam. view post

Hey, yea sometimes I'm going to be away from the board for a few days to a week at a time when things get busy for me, but never fear I clean house when I come back. Unfortunately there was so much spam in the Off-Topic forum that I didn't bother going into individual threads to grab the spammers name for bannination I just went into my special moderation panel and selected all of the 0 reply spam threads and deleted them. Cleaning can be fun :) Especially when you nuke the spam from orbit view post

Go get em Entropic. view post


posted 28 Nov 2006, 21:11 by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

ya, i don;t care so much about a random post in the middle of a thread, but when half the front page is spam threads, i p retty much close my browser and not bother posting anything. view post

Its pretty annoying and i think it scares people from the board. view post


posted 29 Nov 2006, 13:11 by Harrol, Moderator

That is so true it is annoying. view post

[quote="Warrior-Poet":29qf8g65]Its pretty annoying and i think it scares people from the board.[/quote:29qf8g65] could be. also i don;t remember there being so much spam when i joined. view post


posted 29 Nov 2006, 19:11 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Probably because there was no spam when you joined. view post


posted 29 Nov 2006, 19:11 by Harrol, Moderator

true i remember a time when we did not have spam around here. view post


posted 29 Nov 2006, 22:11 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

It was a good time and we had alot more active users than we do now. view post


posted 30 Nov 2006, 02:11 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

It would help alot if the entire memberlist was cleaned of spammers in one big cleanout, then the spammers could be dealt with daily as they register. Maybe we need more Mods? view post


posted 30 Nov 2006, 13:11 by Harrol, Moderator

WP for president.... I mean for mod. view post


posted 30 Nov 2006, 14:11 by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

ya, we need a mod that is here every daily. no offense to EE, but he's obviously busy and doesn;t have the time to clean stuff out. view post


posted 01 Dec 2006, 00:12 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Ive got all the time in the world but its up to the admins. view post


posted 01 Dec 2006, 13:12 by Harrol, Moderator

WP do you want me to PM them or do you want to? view post


posted 01 Dec 2006, 15:12 by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

i'd nominate myself, but of course i would just turn into a tyrannical bitch. so i vote for WP. view post


posted 01 Dec 2006, 19:12 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

I dont think you both are giving yourselves enough credit, you guys would make great Mods. I dont feel comfortable pming an admin asking him to make me a Mod so if you want me as a Mod pm them because Id be more than willing to help out. view post

Nevermind im pming. view post

All we really need is to have one of those "punch in the characters from the image" thing in the registration page. Would cut down on virtually all automated spam. Of course the real people spammers are harder to deal with. view post

that is a great idea EE. The whole security code does seem to be some what effective. view post


posted 04 Dec 2006, 19:12 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

I thought we had a security code? Plus people are paid to spam these days so all they would really have to do is spam on their own or register and setup a code so maybe somewhat effective it wouldnt completely solve the problem. view post


posted 04 Dec 2006, 19:12 by Harrol, Moderator

True and no mater what it would not hurt to have another mod or two. view post


posted 06 Dec 2006, 13:12 by Harrol, Moderator

I hate back to back posts but i just want everyone to know that i went through and cleaned up a lot of spam. EE, WP and I will figure out an effctive way to deal with it for the future. view post


posted 06 Dec 2006, 15:12 by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

i guess that means it's all up to me to keep posting and find out what the further ranks are. view post
