Hi guys,

Since the latest upgrade, the "view active topic" didn't work the way it should.

It should be better now. Who's willing to test it for me in the next couple of days?

Thanks,

Robbie

I had to switch them all on (forum sections) manually. The list of active topics has to be built now which means a topic will only be considered "active" receiving new replies after I set them to "on" for all forums... seconds before this post.

Hi Robbie.

Maybe it would also be possible to have a "view utter crap spam topics" so we could all know what to avoid!

Keep up the good work, O Cheesemeister...

That reminds me of the "bot buster" link we used to have back in the days when we used phpBB2. Spam registrations were visible immediately so they didn't need to activate their registration to be able to be found by google. Registrations had certain characteristics that gave them away as bots. I wrote a few lines of php that filtered them out of the database. So even when we had dozens of bot registrars, one click deleted them all.

Now, most of the time they are not bots, they are human entered registrations which are hard of maybe even impossible to recognise by an automated system.

Those were the days my friend... :)

To answer your question, phphBB is working on phpBB3.1 which I hope will have much better countermeasurements against spammers.

Hiya Ron, I've seen the StopForumSpam thing, it's what I do manually now. Obviously automation is better. I should look into that but there may be side effects like if some administrator considers someone a spammer just once just because he feels like it, he/she will not be able to register here. Probably far fetched, but what if someone that wants to bother you knows your IP address... he can block you from all forums world-wide just by reporting your IP as spam.

I'll read the phpbb.com discussion about it to see what people run into.

I think that is a worthwhile idea Ron. It seems the code half way down the page

https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... #p12950926

is more complete, explained better and prefered by others. I see how it works. Rob if you want we can try this. If it does not work all you have to do is put the orginal file back so we defenitely would have to back up the file before editing it.
