    Some recent anti spam measures.

    Hey all,

    I know recently the boards have kinda be overrun by lots of spamming. In a hope to curtail this, I've created a lot of IP blocks for large ranges where spam was coming from. (lots of China) if you or someone you know was affected by this, please post in this thread.

    Thanks.

    I'm going to go out on a limb but it seems that we may have the Spam situation handled now.

    Well, banned users are still able to sign in. So depends on when they get tired of seeing the you have been banned message.

    -- Also, any time I find spam from Russia, Ukraine, China, etc. I ban their entire ISP's ip range. So we can still get spam, however it should always be on the decline going forward.

    Thanks Woofcat, and everyone who literally saved Mangashare. The difference has been Night and Day. I note that there were some spammers who had signed on as humans to get past the Captcha and stuff, but these are few, and we are vigilant against them.

    Well, I basically wanted to say a sincere thanks to you guys.

    Haha, that's not needed. Now need to fix on resolving the issues with the CSS / etc that is making the Edit / Reply with Quote / etc not work on the inline editors.
