Banned Emails

Recommended Posts

Andy

Due to the obscene amount of bots that are registering I have banned all email addresses from a couple of free service providers.

These are:

:>: allhost.co.uk

:>: mail.ru

If any current genuine members have an @allhost.co.uk or @mail.ru email account and experience any problems, please let me know.

Thanks.

I put in a visual confirmation thingy. Seems to have eliminated the problem so far. *shrugs*

We do, but they seem to be able to get past it.

They (so far) haven't yet been able to post due to the code sent out in registration emails not being verified. But its getting annoying having to delete around 5 users a week because they are just spam bots attempting to register to post.

What if somebody who genuinely had one of those emails wanted to register?

Then I'm sorry, but they should get a better host that doesn't like spammers :p

Besides, don't we have it set so that banned members can post in here?

If I remember correctly, anyone that we apply a "banned" mask to is allowed to post here in the senate only so that they may plead their case. That doesn't work if a mod suspends the account though, only if an admin does all the behind the scenes banningness

That's interesting. I didn't know that.

Makes sense though.

People have been spamming some of the blogs, as guests. Is there a way to remove those comments?

there's a checkbox under your blog settings that will disable guest posting

It's not my blog... I don't have a GB blog. It's Rogue's and DarthDooku's blogs.

admins might be able to fix that, but if not, Rogue/Dooku will have to do it.

EDIT: ok, mods can delete the individual comments, but can't get into the blog settings

Dammit! lol

Okay, there is no mass-delete option for blog comments. :(

I have now disabled Guest commenting from the Admin panel.
