doomer wrote:Hello. I have a suggestion. Recently, there are more and more spam posts and threads, some of them quite offensive. Can something be done about these? Some kind of filters, or protection, so that these spam posts and threads are eliminated? Or is that because of the free.fr domain? Thank you.


I know the situation and I try to delete and ban them as soon as possible, but every morning, I have to do that for nearly 20 IP addresses...

hoping we will find a solution soon!

Stone is right...
Upgrade to phpBB3 should be the best solution
But transfering phpBB2 to phpBB3 is quite a complex operation especially when you have implemented MODs (Modifications)
(for your information, our friend imagine implemented MODs... not me)

I have 2 proposals :
1) last week i've found a (good) way to secure phpBB2...
i will try to do it by 1st testing it on another forum of mine, less important than this one... just give me some time to do it pls ;)
2) if this fails... --> we will upgrade the forum to phpBB3 and loose MODs, (but we (Stone & I) are not sure that bot programers will not find a trojan to infect again in the future...)

cheers

Thanks to all of you for the replies. I will be very glad to see this problem resolved as I believe this community to be one of the friendliest out there. Actually, after the old forum was closed down, I was very happy to have found this one a year later, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much but rather enjoy the company once more. Thank you all. :)

bots continue to spam our forum...
so now we are entering step 2)
I will move the forum from phpBB2 to phpBB3 this weekend.
So don't worry if you cannot access it for a few times...

cheers
