SPAM AND SPAMMERS

Postby Rekka Alexiel » Mon May 19, 2014 2:14 pm

We've been getting hit by a lot of spam and fake accounts lately. I've been deleting these users and their posts and banning their IPs, but... it may be a while until I can figure out a good way to STOP THEM FROM COMING IN TO BEGIN WITH! *sigh* Sorry about that!!

Holy freaking crap. I go away for one day and the board gets attacked by spammers. FML
I've disabled the board from new registrations for a bit while I work on cleaning up this mess.
I haven't had time to secure the registration process to stop spammers from coming in.
I've gotten some advice from another group of people who use the same type of board, so I hope to fix this soon.
If you've been scared away because of the attack, I'm very, very sorry, but I do not intend on closing the board forever.
I'm going to work on this today and try to whip these bastard spammers into shape!!

Spammer cleanup has finished. Now I will enter into a new phase to beef up board security.

New user registrations have been turned off for the time being. I'll post any further information about this here. *sigh*
Need some coffee...

Okay, I've configured a new reCAPTCHA for user registrations and all new users will have to be approved by the admin.
