Why all the spam?

Post by Vio » Sat Aug 03, 2013 6:11 pm

Seriously, what's going on? Where did they all come from?
It's ridiculous and annoying T_T

Why is it being allowed? Have I missed something?
I guess this counts as spam, too, but ah well.

I'm cleaning all the spam as we speak. We were hit pretty hard. :(

I'll say! I can't believe people took the time to do that... or made something that did? It was kind of weird.

It's all automated. Scripts and programma's. Actually, I've been working on a new website that others are testing right now. Hopefully we can move to the new website soon.

Aw man, there's no stopping 'em, huh? Well that sucks big time. Hopefully the new one will be just as good as this one's been~

Where can I find it once it's finished? Will a link be posted here, or...?

If it's like other forums I've been on, then this forum would be locked up and archived away, possibly on a different address, while the new one would take its place. However, there is the possibility that the current forum would simply get replaced with the new site while the old would just get taken offline and stored away somewhere.

Hm, I suppose that makes good sense. Hoping everyone hasn't abandoned this place so that everyone knows when it's fixed ^^'

Yeah, I'm hoping everyone returns when the new boards are up. I also hope to see a lot more new members since the visitor count has been dropping ever since the spam started overriding everything. Kinda lonely.
