ADMIN ~ We need a cleaner

Postby Xanadu » Thu Dec 03, 2015 7:29 am

Dear Admin, can't we do something about all this spam? I used to come here quite regularly, but the spam threads are really putting me off visiting. X/

There does seem to be a big influx of spammers lately. I know I have reported a few as well as others. They are very annoying.

We're looking into upgrading the forum and updating the security which should stop the spammers.

Great! It just was a sudden burst of them in the last month or two.

It looks like the spammers are back in force, it looks pretty dire in here.

They are everywhere. I hope they upgrade soon and stop this problem as it is getting really bad.

Apologies - I haven't been on the forums in a while but am doing a massive clean-up now.

Ahh I just saw your post after sending another letter to admins. It has gone crazy and I have noticed a lot of the regulars are disappearing because of it. Good to know it is being sorted as they have posted in pretty much every section of the forum. Thanks :)

Oh god so much spam *claws face. Sorry for some reason some earlier notifications didn't go through to me so I only discovered this now.

I'll get on this ASAP, and apologies for the trouble.

Ok, I think that's most of it gone. General discussion is no longer a bizarre hellscape (for a while there it seemed to have an infinite number of topics that could not be deleted because the forum thought they didn't exist)

There are a number of spammers still in the database who haven't posted so I will be culling them in short order.

Thanks to everyone who sent alerts, I'm sorry we didn't get to this sooner. I'll be looking in to making sure this doesn't happen in the future, for the moment signups are disabled to prevent more spammers

Thanks so much DevKimiko. There was just a sudden run of them. So much nicer to just see all the regulars again :)

Just popping in to say the anti-spam questions have been changed and signups are online again. We are looking at more permanent solutions and will have an announcement about forum upgrades soon.

Also moving this to the forum bugs and suggestions area as that's probably a better spot for it.
