I'd love to come back as a spambot. Not all spambots are bad.

There was one a couple of years ago that wanted you to buy cheese and porn.
A combination that has yet to be bettered.

Tell you what, Tez Lords, if this keeps happening and the board keeps having problems do you want me to see if I can find a solution? We had similar problems on the forum I run but got right on it. Obviously we don't get as much traffic as this place but it might be useful. I'd hate to see this place go down the pan, I like it here.

If I could i would. Unfortunately our two admins don't seem to pop on here that much any more so I don't know what the chances are of them seeing your offer and acting on it.

A bit shite, really.

Quite. Boo hiss and all that.

Surely whoever is doing the back room tinkering is checking the board to see what effect their tinkering is having?

Heh, you don't remember Sysadmin and his exploits the last time this kind of stuff was attempted, do you.

It seems web designers are not very good at taking criticism. I'm not suprised this new guy hasn't popped on here since the skin change bollock-up a couple of weeks back - we've had worse.

I don't think there was anything that harsh said, I went out of my way to make sure I made helpful suggestions. The place could do with sprucing up a bit and I'm sure there's a nice common ground between what the owners want and what the users want. The site needs both so it's important to keep both happy. The fact that there isn't even a Terrorizer logo at the top of the page any more can't be making the Tez Lords happy.

FYI
I'm banning about two spammers a day on our forum at the moment. We don't get anywhere near the sort of traffic this site gets so that's quite a high proportion. I'm guessing that there must be a particularly active spam network on the go at the moment. I know that there was a big a tail off in spam towards the end of last year and that at least one major spam network got shut down, this must be a new one. I'll see if I can find the reports.

Also, it's a bit of an extreme measure but has anyone considered banning IPs by location? For example, most spam comes from Russia and China so denying users in those locations access to the site would help curtail the spam. On the down side it means that no one from those countries will be able to view the board. It's a case of weighing it up.

Us mods can only ban seperate posters' IP's on here. Maybe admins can, but as an admin on Blackmoth I never saw the option to do that (and I'm sure it was the same type of board as this).

Who knows, though?

I'll have a look on our one as I know we could do it on our old board, we've updated since then though. There was an option to exclude IPs from certain locations by putting in the relevant 'area code'. It wasn't listed as exclude by location but that's essentially what it was. I'll have a poke around on our board tonight and see what I can come up with as far as suggestions go.

This place has a very unloved feel at the moment, the Tez logo has been missing for a while, I'm guessing it's being left to rot and is going to get dumped.

Serious Q for a mod/admin... does 'mark as read' count as replying to/opening/reading the post?
