Default Tis the season!

The spam war of 2014 has begun. We're forming squads and watching the gates in shifts, but there's a chance that some of them will infiltrate our forum and cause a little havoc. Just know that we are watching things over closely, and if something stays on the forum longer than it should, feel free to submit a report that we can review.

I'm looking into installing some more spam security to lessen the load, so we'll see how things hold up over the next few days.

I can already tell the new filters have been working...thank you Bayz! The flashbacks are subsiding.

We were getting like two or three every half hour it seemed. Things seem to have slowed down. Keep your fingers crossed, mom!

I will, and I'll be home and keeping an eye out tomorrow. Just the fact that it's been over an hour since a spammer has tried to join says something though lol.

The old spam prevention software we were using has been figured out by pretty much every spammer on earth. Figured a new system would throw them off a bit.

I think people will appreciate the new software when they register. Gone are the days of annoying, impossible to read phrases.

Seems like it's doing a wonder on the spammers.
