90 miles - around 145km and took a tad over one and a half hours. While it is straight it is still undulating.

How long is it and how long did it take you??

Magic. We have 5 pages of 'new members'... all spambots...  but none have managed to get through to post or to 'activate' themselves. I've seen a mod that cleans out 'members' with zero posts so we can run that occasionally to empty the lists. I think (for now) we're sorted. :D

It is there... not used much tho. I was trying to get the forum to access it and copy posts (which the mod says it *can* do. I gave up months ago but I'll get back to trying to configure it. :D

So CC I thought you had an Australian Opinions facebook page but cant seem to find it.  any clues?
 

Chris

April 17, 2014, 09:06:29 AM
Ok... totally strengthened some of the existing spambot measures while waiting. For example Project Honeypot (via Bad Behaviour) is running at a higher level than previously and the Captcha requirements are set to maximum. Might add in a'human verification' tab yet. We'll see. On with the motley!!  
 

Chris

April 17, 2014, 08:51:12 AM
Aaaand... there goes another 48. Still waiting on a response to my anti-spambot Mod query. :)
 

Chris

April 17, 2014, 07:10:48 AM
Around 80 spambots registered in these few days. I have a new mod which says it will stop them, but I can't get it to install properly. Will try again today and/or seek help from the devs.

For a long time the only person running the place was jen but even she got fed up in the end. Sadly I think it's time *has* passed and I can't think of any way to resurrect it.
 

Chris

April 16, 2014, 07:09:10 AM
I've got a sentimental attatchment to the place obviously... but it's really sheer bloody mindedness that's kept it open for so long. And in all honesty if *I* can't be bothered to turn up here for months at a time I can hardly blame anyone else for going elsewhere!

Given that I have leanr the hard way to use a throw away email account for contact from here, I'd hate to see some poor honest bugger get attacked by bots as I was in the past. The current small crop of posters all appear to have been savvy enough to do the same

CC I know you've paid out money for this place but given what has happened I suspect that before some folks get burnt you wish it well and consign it. I honestly don't think it is worth the angst mate

Looks like they've found a way around the protections... back to researching at SMF to see if any of the antispam mods need updating or if there are now ones! :(

What country are you referring to?
Is it the one owned by the yanks? CC/Amatil? They bought out a good Oz company to make a buck, so let the yanks get them out of trouble. Where do you think that the profits were going to?
