Forum Update

Post by Akila » Thu Apr 25, 2019 9:01 pm

Hi All, as you probably all seen in the past few weeks we had a great Spam posting attack on our forum.
the posters posted over 32,000 posts rendering this forum out of use.
I approached Turkish and he granted me an Admin permissions, in which then allowed me to fix the situation.

the following thing that I did in order to increase security of this forum:
1. I restricted some permissions on posting for new users.
2. new users posts require a MOD to approve the post before it is show in the Forum
----a. Already had few Spam attempts, but it was stopped immediately because their post waited for
approval and they can't post more than one post until their previous post was approved
----b. The spam post gets removed (not approved) and the user gets instant ban, and as you can see the forum is clean
3. i deleted all the spam userIDs and their posts.
4. I have created a new forum that would discuss everything to do with Jeppesen for Windows PC.
5. I will observe and watch for the next few days to see if we are all clear or shall i impose further restrictions on new users.

in any case let's hope this would solve the problem. shoot me a PM on any thing you have in mind

I do not suffer form Insanity, I'm enjoying it :roll:
