Spammers on Steepster
Hopefully that will hold them for the night…
Unfortunately not. Back again…and replying to themselves. Guess they’re getting lonely? XD
Apparently, they think you have nothing better to do with your time than to clean up after them.
Luckily I was still up.
Unfortunately, Cheif is still fixing up all the alert vipers. Spinning up the FTL tho…
They’ve eaten the forum again.
Cleared out everything. Also working on some additional spam prevention measures.
It’s starting again…
We released a few new spam prevention features just as those threads started up, and they stopped right after. Fingers crossed that the new features will help keep it under control.
It’s even worst than ever and steepster is completely paralized now, (dashboard frozen also.)
Ugh. Back again. With self replies again.
oh these g*ddamned spammers!!
Yes. They have paralyzed everything again…dashboard also frozen for the past 4 hours!!! Same old story. Except that it’s getting worse.
And they’re back….sigh.
Testing the new spam removal…
They are getting creative.
Possible anti-spam feature that’s in use in another forum that I use. I don’t know if you’d be able to implement it here but I’ll share it.
Have a (Report) or similar button on posts or tealogs or teas or all and after a certain number of entries (one per person) it automatically hides it for everyone and puts themselves in a queue for you to look at and deal with.
FYI, we recently added the ability to create moderators who can remove spammers and their content. It’s not much, but should help keep the forums cleaner and make it so you don’t have to wait around for me. I’ll be posting more info on it shortly.
