Improved anti-spam measures are cutting down dramatically on the number of spam messages that get through, but we're still being pounded with fake registrations. I just deleted more than 14,000 members who registered over the last three months. Most are banned as soon as they register, but they're still slowing down searches, etc. About 200 more registered in the few hours I've been off at a guild meeting.

I hope I didn't break anything or delete anyone I shouldn't have. I tried to be very careful about that (only about 50 of them had gotten as far as actually posting anything), but yanno, 14,000. Easy to miss something in all that. Let me know if something has gone awry.

Next step is to try to stop them before they register. Time to dig into referrer checks....

Hm, the new Attic looks rather colorful and snazzy, but why does everybody have "Guest_" in front of their names?

I was wondering that as well. It seems once we give ourselves pictures we no longer have that. But I notice that my older posts still have Guest_Shian instead of reflecting my picture... I guess the move just made things a little wonky? 


And yes thank you so much, Oyster Girl!! I was sad to see some spam on the new posts thing but I'm glad it's not worse. :D
