Dear Community,

As many of you may or may not know, our forum has been the target of malicious spammers for a while now. We've begun to crack down on these attacks, and tighten our defenses. However, now that we have our walls up, we have to prune our community of past malicious accounts.

In order to facilitate this pruning, we have decided to take a route that has left some valid members in the dust, and for this we apologize. We have removed all inactive users, and by inactive we mean users that had zero (0) posts. Whether or not these inactive members were indeed spammers, they were removed regardless.

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you were one of the unlucky few that were removed, please make a new account, and post a few times :)


Regards,


Jason

Well I've successfully cleansed the forum of all our spam bot issues (except for that pesky dwarf.. Mezzy).

Other than that, nothing really (that I can reveal to you) :oops:

However, I'm currently working on a few things that might get you excited.. or not:

- Integrated Phobos forums
- An updated website (internal changes, to make it work again)

:twisted:

We've added another counter-measure to filter out bots :shock:

PS- Although we're trying our best to rid the community of these bots, we appreciate all reports of spam bots. To report a spam bot, just private message an administrator with the post url (Robbert and Jason are formidable members to contact). Thanks!

This topic is very old, they aren´t deleting players anymore. The problem with bots is over.
And isaactchu, you are an active member, you won´t be deleted :)
