|  The death of spam||28 September, 2011|
|Awhile back ace123 made a few changes to the forums that has so far been fairly effective in keeping spammers from posting on the forums. BUT, it also keeps new members from posting as well until their post can be approved by a moderator or admin. Soon this will change back to the way it was.
Starting over the next few days I will be making changes to the forum code to try and keep all spambots from even being able to register. Last night I deleted over 2,000 spam accounts and another 55 that popped up between then and now. The first step to spam eradication will happen today, once I finish updating my copy of the entire vegastrike site.
By the end of the week we should see no more users named "Unistawilia" or "allcottalmond". Maybe we will get lucky and these changes will be 100% effective. Here's to wishful thinking, may it come true.
