Re: Rainwearfetish community beta

What is the URL for that service? First time I hear about it.

Re: Russian spam?

I have just noticed it, and I am absolutely furious. This absolute cunt dumped everything and ran, so I can't even ban him & delete everything in one go. It'll have to be done manually. I am so angry. Hi Mason! Looks like we've had another one (about an hour ago - UK time) - on this link (Pictu...

Re: Private messages

No problem - do try to keep private messages to a minimum and always (where possible) use email instead.

Private messages take up space on the database and ultimately cuts into hosting space that could have otherwise be used for posts on the forum.

Re: Russian spam?

Yeah, that was the idea, and something that PHPBB seems to support, however the issue I ran into was that apart from placing the new users in their own group, the also got the normal "registered users" role - which then allowed access to the rest of the board. So then I made a new group ca...

Re: Russian spam?

I made a change to limit new account to the newly registered users sub forum - however this was after some spammers already registered accounts. Let's see if any new ones get through (accounts created after 2 December). If so then I will have to go back to the manual approvals that I have been doing...

Re: Trying some new for new users
