Sorry about the Spam over the last few days guys, I’ve been away over the weekend and thanks for sticking it out.
Im going away for 5 weeks from next week, so will be good to get someone else on to help out if you are keen send me a pm. Im also going to talk to Allen about doing some updates to help becasue at the moment all im able to do is delete posts and ban users and it has been working, except when cases like that come up. I think ive deleted about 30+ spam users who have signed up just within the last week

There are mods that can be installed for phpBB that will ad an extra question that could not be answered by a bot( math question etc ) to the sign up process, which should 100% stop any automated spam bots from signing up.
Method shown there should work12/05/2009 at 4:32 am #13202MiliwolfParticipant
We could have a question which asks “Whats red and swim in the sea?”
It would also filter any Jafas out which might stumble upon the site14/05/2009 at 1:22 am #13209
Where are the mods ?
This place will die if the spam is not taken care of14/05/2009 at 2:04 am #13210
I don’t know. I offered to do it. The only person who can change permissions here is yellowfin/alan and according to his profile he hasn’t logged in since March 25th.14/05/2009 at 6:57 am #13211MiliwolfParticipant
Maybe he read one to many WOW spams, and decided to check out that game.
Just goes to show how big that game has gotten that Spam bots for wow cheat/fraud sites now target random web forums. It must be as big as erectile dysfunction and demand for super cheap footware and consumer electronics.

Back from my holiday (not liking the cold though!)
So there will 2 mods on now so should clear up the spam. Dont see many changes by Allen yet which is a little frustrating but will get through it.
Any problems message either myself or rdeejay
