Ok, i came on here today to do my bot cleanup routine. I was on here during the week this past week, so it hasnt been that long, im guessing 3 days.. and i am NOT exadurating, there was over 700 bots!
I am taking that as a compliment that everyone wants to spam us, however the majority of them were 2 different Domains
i had emails liek email@example.com
and then stuff like firstname.lastname@example.org
basicaly all random numbers and letters (those are NOT the real domains by the way)
anyways i BANNED those domains from re-registereing and it shoudl stop that from happening again.
Since i have put many measures into the site to keep the general public from seeing any Bots, or spam posts i assume it was all working..
the memberslist was over 20 pages long (50 per page) .. we have a 6 or 6 page list as it stands (rememebr you cant see everyone unless your an Admin)
anyways what i am getting at is, tonight i will be doing a site backup as precautionary measures, because i dont liek the fact that in 3 days the site was flooded like that.
Also, if you had an account that was accidentally removed in the process, please accept my appologies, and re-sign up. Then Email me and let me know i deleted it (or reply here) and i'll make sure it doesnt happen again.
here's a hint for newbies, dont put a website in your profile until after you are a verified member. I check all websites in the profiles to make sure there not spam, if they are that account is deleted... simple as that
anyways tonigth at around ... 9-10 o clock, i will shut the site down temporarily for a database backup.. this should take around 15-20 mins
thank you for your understanding
