Yeah. I don't think Soul's gonna be happy when she sees all the spam.

... - Gwedin - 01-02-2014 05:21 PM

Let's tie her up until her anger resides.

RE: ... - brainiac3397 - 01-02-2014 05:22 PM

Odd isnt it?

At about 2:00 AM -5 GMT(UTC). So 7:00 AM GMT(UTC) is when right about when the attack.

Wonder how they got past filter...

On a serious note, I wonder how this'll affect how the forums are run. I mean, she's already banned them via wording, etc. I'd say the only way would be to ban the entire IP area, which would be a shame for any Punjabis attempting to join School Survival. Not that we've had many Asian members (though there was a Chinese user back in early 2013).

EDIT: They've stopped for now. Perhaps the filters were able to block them from the forums, or perhaps Soul set a limit on the number of threads being created in the same section, perhaps helping relieve the constant rubbish.

You think her changes have anything to do with me getting logged out once in a while?

Not too often to be a problem, but it is annoying trying to post and getting "your not authorized yada yada" then having to login in(I dont have to type anything since its already saved) then go back 2-3 pages to my post then press submit again.

... - HawkbitAlpha - 01-02-2014 05:54 PM

I haven't been logged out at all. Don't know what you're getting.

RE: ... - brainiac3397 - 01-02-2014 06:03 PM

Well my problem started yesterday. But I dont know if it might be only with mobile because I havent been online with my PC for two days. So I have no data there. All I know is that I randomly seem to sign out.

EDIT:Seems to be by the hour. Every hour I get signed off, compared to the last two sign offs.

Looks like another spambot is online. Will be disappointed it can't post.

BTW: anyone notice that whenever the spambots attack the homepage seems to be partially messed up?

... - HawkbitAlpha - 01-03-2014 03:54 AM

Probably because they're posting so rapidly that they're bogging the data server down.

RE: ... - brainiac3397 - 01-03-2014 04:01 AM

They back again.

These are some tricky bastards Soul.
I think its black magic! Razz

... - James Comey - 01-03-2014 03:34 PM

Guys, I have a feeling there are 2 spambots here right now....

... - Ky - 01-03-2014 03:48 PM

The spam problem is indeed getting out of hand, but yelling at Soul won't help matters. If anything, we should try to do something to help.

... - James Comey - 01-03-2014 04:16 PM

Yeah, and the site (well, at least for me) is running REAL slow. Perhaps Soul can give us some kind of temporary admin in order to deal with this shit.

RE: ... - Subb - 01-03-2014 04:18 PM

They've been trying to post stuff for a while now. I think it finally worked!

... - James Comey - 01-03-2014 04:27 PM

Is the site running slow for any of you? It definitely is for me. Interestingly enough one of the possible spambots has a really creepy avatar. They're serious about this Indian black magic.

RE: ... - Subb - 01-03-2014 04:31 PM

It's working fine for me.

RE: ... - brainiac3397 - 01-03-2014 04:54 PM

Im getting some quirks but havent fully established whether its the site or the phone.

... - James Comey - 01-03-2014 05:53 PM

Okay, the forum running fine for me now. Sorry about the double post, it rejected the first one and wondered whether the filters had blocked the "black magic" part and I had to re-post it.
