This latest hack ...

Recommended Posts

I didn't even get to see it. 

 

When you say Hack, what do you mean.

 

defaced the baord or spam bots posting crap?

 

 

Just two temporary users spammed the hell out of those forums.

I was more worried about the 20 000 spam accounts I have yet to delete.  I am guessing cause the URL changed they are not working.

 

Those two joined today. 

 

I'l try making some changes.

I deleted the spam posts, hundreds of them, after being alerted by Redcoatsforever. Note to all: please use the "Report" link at the bottom of each post or the "Report This Member" link at the bottom of each member's profile to inform mods/admins of a problem.

Jamie, I was able to lock the two spam accounts from posting, but I was not able to fully ban them -- how do I do that, assuming I even can? See the Report Center in the Moderator CP for the names of the two spam accounts.

I'll go over the permissions tonight when I get home.  I thought I set them for that... 

 

I'll create an intermediary usergroup with curtailed permissions. 

 

People with lots of posts should get auto promoted.

I tried to report the member and it said that I couldn't do that.

When the hell did this site come up?

 

I was checking cansoc.org for what seems like months and nothing.  Only Pete told me not too long ago that the domain changed.

A week now I guess. Not long. Still turning things on.  It's a very different system to learn. Pluses & minuses.
