Spam!!??

Post by Jixxala » Tue Jun 13, 2006 4:53 pm

Wow, ok I was told that this site gets nailed with spam posts, but I had not seen any before today (guess that shows how good the mods are at getting rid of it all). I am sure glad our site does not get the quantity or quality of the pseudo-porno spam you guys gets. :P

In case there are any newer users here that see some rather odd posts with nothing to do with BGRPG or RP, that is most likely what you are seeing. No worries, the mods here are very good and will clean it up very soon.

take care and good gaming,

I was planning to suggest to heruca that he should make all but one forum registered-posting only.

Ever since that MacGameFiles site linked to BRPG we've been getting around 15 or more spams per day.

We do have some forum nazi on our board that watch stuff pretty tight, a good thing since I don't always. We do only have a few forums that are open to all, and many of them you cannot post on without registering (read only). With that setup we have had 1 spam that I am aware of in almost 3 years. That is with some 400+ registered users and some 150,000 hits a month (gee that is a sobbering statistic, we should be better if we are doing that many ... anyway) I agree with you Omni, with more and more people checking the site out it may be time to demand registration for anyone wanting to post.

Sorry if there´s been a lot of spam lately. Normally, I´m around to delete spam within moments of it being posted.

I´ll see about making most of the forums "read only" except to registered users.
:arrow: Please help spread the word about BRPG and BGE, and never hesitate to tell me how I can make them better suit your gaming needs.

Sorry everyone, was on the road a few days and couldn't clear out the spam as usual. I'm back home now and I just deleted about 40 spams. :P
