Postby MikeytheBV » 12 Mar 2016, 4:49 am

So I decided to check back on the good ol' Kritz.net forums for old-times sake.

And HOLY-F***!!!!

WTF is with all the weird spam!!!???

And why are most of the Forum Games locked?

Why are some of the suggestions locked?

We've been hit by a wave of spam, new spam accounts are being created like every minute or so. I occasionally close the forum to delete most of the spam post and ban accounts. Locked forums are forums where spammers usually tried to post so I locked them. Recently altered the anti-spambot settings, so instead of having a Captcha code, they need to answer to a specific quetion. Not sure how effective it'll be though.. but I'm doing my best to ban IP's and e-mail services

Edit: Kritz downloaded a new captcha code plugin, we'll see how effective that one is against fending off the vile spammers

Well 1 good thing is: no new accounts are being created, the new captcha and all the e-mail/IP bans are doing their job well. All we ned to do is delete the older 14.000 spam accounts that have been created since march 1 and victory will be on our side

Well the situation became much better. The only spam we get is from accounts that have been created between March 1 and March 9. The new captcha is doing it's job (Thanks a lot Kritz!)

If you're talking about the in-game texture bugs for some people, I suggest posting it in the bugs forum, even though it's already been talked about so many times, no offense intended.
