Spam

Postby ThatGuy » Sun Mar 06, 2016 11:11 am

Is anyone going to do anything about the stupid amount of spam this forums been getting over the past couple of weeks? If not this forum might aswell just get closed down, there's not a huge amount of people on here anymore by the looks of it

Posted same in another topic. Dizz advised if a member wants to take over the site or a few members manage it together but would have to buy it from him and move it to another server. It's costing him money just to keep it alive and it does need taking care of. Spam is rediculous. Only way is if someone wants to take it over from Dizz. Would need knowledge on how to do it. Was going to suggest if members helped to pay for the site then have admin access to run the site and manage the spam coming in. Get rid of the spam and block the crap coming in.

I did actually see that and to be honest I'd be happy to do it if I had the knowhow to do it but unfortunately I don't :/ I does seem a shame to let a good forum go to waste and let it die out, there's far to much knowledge on here and plus it's the only UK altezza forum so would be a shame if it dissappear :/

Same here. Would be happy to do that too. Would need the know how. Without the knowledge it's a killer. Only way I can see is if members who want to run the site help out with payment and then are provided with admin powers to do what's needed to get the site going. That would mean a select few agreeing to helping with payment of the site. I agree it is a shame to lose the site looking back to 2012 and 2013 it was a great site full of action.

Hi there,

I sold off my Altezza years ago so haven't been around in a good while but got a notification from an old post a few days ago, I've been deleting and banning as best I can when I get a spare few minutes, I've also locked a few posts to keep the spammers out, but I've no power to delete spammers and their posts :-(
Only admins can delete users and their posts
Also only admins can promote users to moderators,
Tis a shame to see the site get polluted by those spam-bots
Is there many users on here now?

Cheers
Noel

Hey Noel. Ya did a good job clearing the site up. Easier to see new posts now. Spam bots are a joke and would love to delete them. There's still a few users knocking around. All the spam made the site look like it was going into the abyss and I'd say it was putting members off using the site. Fair play Noel for doing the bit you did it helped the site a lot. Easier to navigate. Still some new users signing up so that's a good sign.

Its a massive shame as there is so much info on here and even though there are probably way less members on here than there used to be (bound to be with less Altezzas about!) I think if someone were able to pick it up and solve the problems and improve it then there would probably be more members signing up.

At the moment, members are taking a peek on here, noticing there isn't a massive amount of traffic and then noticing massive amounts of spam so that is bound to put them off returning! :(

Agree. It will put them off. Don't think the porn spam helps either. :lol: generally needs a site take over. Just depends If dizz would agree to allow a select few members admin access in exchange for money paid towards helping the site maintanence. Other than that it would then be down to a few members buying the site off dizz and moving it to a new server then do a revamp of the site by getting rid of the registered spam users.
