Please Clean Up This Forum

Postby NACarter » Fri Sep 22, 2006 8:45 am

Hi Nabocorp,

Now that you are back on the scene, please could you clean up this forum? The amount of SPAM on it only encourages legitimate users to stop using it. Alternatively perhaps one of the regular users could be a moderator?

Nabocorp, PLEASE visit your forum enough to clean things up. I thought Cam2PC was coming back to life, but now I wonder. . .

Hi,

just cleaned up the forum but this is becoming a real pain! The amount of spam just keeps increasing despite the use of a CAPTCHA image...

You are running an out of date version of phpBB which has a number of exploits in it that allow spambots to post. Upgrade to the latest version, and in addition insist on administrator approval for new members to avoid 'human' (I use the term loosely!) spammers. You can usually easily spot the spammers from the real users, and just don't approve them so they can't post. There are some handy mods for phpBB which make the task of going through the user list and deleting the spammers a bit easier. See the user forums on www.phpp.com for details.
