[QUOTE=Dsaturn;2315598]Holly molly the board is just full of it today. Every forum has nothing but spam. Charlie you really need to get some help cleaning this **** up. :whoa::dazed:[/QUOTE]

I have run forums in the past, and still do - but not on vbulletin - I always used SMF (Simple Machines Forum). What we are seeing is spam bots. Could even be on someone's PC that has a virus/malware, and they don't even know it.

In SMF I used to block entire IP ranges when this happened, as it almost always was coming from overseas.

Unfortunately, these bots are posting more spam every minute. The longer it takes Charlie to respond, the more of a mess it is to clean up. I've seen forums go away forever because of this type of situation, I hope that doesn't happen here.

Add me to the list of people willing to donate time to help clean up.

Charlie I do not know why you do not want help but as the previous poster said if we can not get this cleaned up it will get worse. I love this forum, I am also on other Saturn forums but hardly ever visit them because all the real knowledgeable people are on here.

I've been using saturn forum more lately because of the spam. Been a long time user there.
Theres a handful of people and each has a specialty amongst the brand

update would help or verification box (like it was posted in previous messages) but i think the fans who have higher ranks ( posting ranks or longest time member) should have rights to mute/temp ban people who spam like what we are going through now, been charlie is working and trying to monitor this forum isn't easy it would make it easier on him and make the forum easier to find helpful posts

and it wouldn't take much to make a (mod account that has access to mute option or ban option only) i use to make them on other fourm sites for that type of reason and it was for a game too

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry for my delayed response to the spam attacks. I'm on a project that's finally wrapping up and it's kept me from my normal routine. I like the idea of having you all help get rid of spam I have some ideas on how to implement that too. I'm upgrading the site to a new server in the next month, and I while I'm tinkering that's when I'll add the capability. I appreciate everyone's offer to help!!!

Thanks,
Charlie
