Good morning all,

well didn't I come in to a nice surprise? The forum FLOODED with spam. Please be patient if you see it folks. It has been taken care of. If you see something like that rest assured we don't let it sit and linger on the forums. Unfortunately we aren't always here at the time (we do have to sleep sometimes..lol) so it might be on overload in the morning but it will go away.

I did get to work on my drawing some more yesterday. Pretty happy with it.

Terry should be starting her adventure..jealous...sounds like fun.

Lets see what wonderful things the day brings us. I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Good Lord. What time to you get up girl? It's not even 7am and you are an hour ahead of me and already you have been on for awhile.

We won't be leaving to pick up Athena until this afternoon so I'll still be around a bit, and our plane doesn't leave until Sunday morning so I just might be on a few times tomorrow too, but not much, the girls keep me busy.

I got rid of a porn post just a minute ago too. This is ridiculous. Almost seems like someone is trying to aggravate us intentionally. Sorry I'm leaving you with this responsibility, I'll try to make up for it in the future. I'm so glad you are here moderating.

LOL. I get up at 4:30/5:00. I am getting rid of them left and right. Unfortunately I am headed to work in a bit so won't be on for at least an hour. If you could check in every so often during that time it would be awesome.

I am used to it. They do this crap. They spend a lot of time registering and not posting and then boom..hit all at once. They seem to be especially active again...

I know you will be very busy! It will be worth it!

These guys...first of all...I'm sure it's a program not person...anyway they are setting up accounts as of today. I've been deleting accounts before they have a chance to post. The all have random generated names with numbers in them and they all have "man" in their biography...which is what you warned me about.

Yes..you are probably right on the computer generated aspect. I also suspect it partially stems from that one member I told you about.

Probably. I wonder how that person is able to generate different IP addresses. I thought if you permanently banned it kept the IP address and checked for it...I guess not. It seems like the admin's should be able to help us with this. I'm going to write a note.

It does Terry..but if you look none of the IP addresses are the same. That is how they are getting around it.

Yeah..that was my point. How are they (he she or it) generating different IP addresses? Surely they are coming from the same source.

Hey all - just an FYI - the ArtAdmin made a new thread under Misc. Art. It's entitled "Need Information" and it is set up for all those requests for "who's this artist" that we get.

Sounds like you guys are pulling your hair out.. let me know if you need help.. I can't be here all the time.. but when I am on it's not a problem to help out if I can.

Anonymous browsing is a huge problem on forums.. they can change IP's at will... There should be an option on the forum Admin board to have to have a new member be approved before they can post.. That could be helpful if it continues

D:cool:

Glad you'll be around for a bit Terry.. Hope you have a great time with the girls!

These spammers do this. They hit in waves..then they go away to regroup. I have always thought it would make things easier if they would make new members be on an approval basis but I doubt that will happen. In the mean time we just keep on deleting as we see. Gotta stay on top of it that's for sure.
