Anybody still moderating this forum? It's full of spam.

It's been a little while since I've been here.  Used to be real active around the time Legacy came out and thereafter.  It's obviously died down a bit, which is not surprising considering Disney has pretty much dropped the franchise,... but I digress.

Anyway, I see that all the forums are full with multiple spam postings.  Is the admin no longer involved with the site (other than hosting)?  Seems like even a monthly visit to clear some of the garbage out would go a long way.  Sorry if I am complaining, this is a cool site... just hate to see it in this state.

I'm sorry but is it me or is this problem getting worse?

To the people involved I say can you PLEASE STOP DOING THIS? Fans come here to discuss the franchise, and if you want to advertise your 'services' please do it on your own time!
This is a forum, not an online shopping channel!

Thank you.

Surely the fact that there are almost NO responses to these threads by members highlights the lack of interest in them?

(Of course we all know they're just going to ignore what I've said and carry on regardless).

You are right, it's getting worse.  Most of the first two pages in the forum are spam messages.  Not sure what we can do as the moderators have seemed to have disappeared.

If an admin ever reads this, I recommend making the first post required to have moderation approval.  I run a bulletin board and I've found this eliminates 99.9% of the spam.  Most of these spam posts are probably bots so there is no human involvement.

Is there any way to help or report spam posts?  I just saw a new bot-account post some spam, but I do not see any "report this message" button, etc.  Maybe it is time to update forum software or get a few more moderators?

How are you going to control the universe if you can't answer a few unsolvable problems?

I also looks like the forum was hacked at some point in the past?   Tons of posts have the "abortion pills" in them.  I have been trying to edit some of my posts to remove the junk, and it looks like the HTML of the spam was added very consistently (and poorly).  Seems perfect for an automated script to remove, maybe?

Also, some of the posts seem to have been truncated...  Is the forum being maintained any more, or is it in the processing of dying?

Mathew sometimes Admins like Auric who runs this site has to go in as the admin and start manually deleting the posts. Depending on how he programmed the ASP pages for this site. It will always depend on how he had set it up for the forums. But once he got in like he always does. And Auric knows me as well right Auric. It is usually cuaght quickly and its been usually deleted.

To compute or not to compute that is the question at hand. Tis nobler to compile in C++ or in TASM.

Greetings, program! It appears you are unauthorized and your language subroutines are faulty. I'm afraid the Users have detected your intrusion and security protocols will soon be enforced. There is nowhere left for you to RUN. Your de-resolution is imminent. Have a nice cycle!
