Improvements To The Board

Recommended Posts

Ugh. Spam guests.

None of the mods had anything to do with it; we didn't even get told anything about it until it happened! I'm not sure if it was automatically updated or if Tina did it manually. There has been an upgrade available for a while (although I would call this a downgrade -___-), so as I said, I don't know if it was automatic because the old version is being phased out, or if WBR decided it was time for an update.

It's most definitely the I.P. Board thing.

If you change your theme to that one, you'll notice that the layout is similar to this one.

I think the theme got changed and the only things that stayed were the customizations...which I think were more like colours and graphics.

Vraiment? VRAIMENT? -- Sorry, french spam for no reason. Neutralized. Gonna see if I can do something about the spam on this thread, for some reason spam bots attack this one.

Whoa. Hold up.

Animated .GIFs don't work as avatars? wat

Edit: Whoa! Layout change! Very nice. Looks like the old one. I think the light grey font on the white might still be iffy for peeps, though.

^ I often access the site on my iphone with no problems - the full site that is.

There is also a mobile version of the site, at the bottom of the page, there is a link which says 'use mobile version', when you access the fullsite on a phone. Hope that helps.

On another note, I think the board update looks nice, I've had a look around and I like the 'slick' and more 'stream lined' appearance.

Anyways so far the new changes get a thumbs up from me.

=)

Just commenting that I really love how I can get the mobile version on my blackberry now. For some reason I could only get the full version before? And that was horrible.

Anyways.

Yay :)

this is probably a dumb question-

is there any way to turn off the status updates from twitter?

not gonna lie, having to see updates from people who don't even post here gets a bit tedious

especially now that we can't see which are from twitter, and which are from the boards

When we report spam and it's like 5 posts in a row in the same thread, do we report all of them or is one enough?

I don't know why there's so much spam all of a sudden =/ I'm banning about five a day, and there are about ten more a day that are automatically flagged as spammers (from their email address etc.) :(

I've been getting around 20 per day on the Webways submission form, and there's no way to block certain addresses or words so instead of reading about meet-ups and art projects I'm deleting adverts for preteen Russian hookers, pharmaceuticals and pornography. Maybe Spammer's World magazine has done a feature on getting around security software.

And if there isn't a Spammer's World mag, then don't get any ideas, you illiterate fucks.

Where's it happening?

(I think I can set a filter to block out keywords that spammers push.)

Nice to see you around these zones!

It's happening here! The ones I block I find by going members > join date > last page and there are plenty with the username xdcgvbhnj or something of the likes.

If you go into the Admin CP and click on members, you'll be able to see the ridiculous amount of spam that the forum automatically bans. It's been happening ever since the board was updated, don't know why.

I've been ghosting for a while. I'm thinking of putting in some word filters that should cut down spam. Heuristic algorithms and whatnot!
