I've noticed over the past couple of months that we get a spam bots of sorts that posts advertisements to another website. I also notice that these all seem to occur around the same time. Is it at all possible to view the IP or just any information regarding where the spam accounts come from, so that you could ban that whole IP from making new accounts. If that is at all possible I think we can make this website a better place.
Look, you wake up one day, and your legs, they just give and you just can't run anymore.

Is there a forum upgrade in the works or is that just a possibility? If there is an upgrade coming, could you turn off new accounts temporarily until the new software is in place to stop the spam?Iccy wrote:Thanks captainrex. The site needs to be upgraded and changed. There could be a possibility that the forum software could be changed.

When you say new accounts, you don't mean guys like us, right? You mean posters with under 5 posts?Iccy wrote:Sorry with the late reply hatcher. That's a good suggestion. All new accounts are now being reviewed. Its a possibility but it will happen. Either a new forum software or something else.
