Methinks a mass prune of the board memberlist may be in order.

Don't know about anyone else but for the past few weeks especially it seems the majority of the time I visit the forums there's always some new, random person/bot showing up on "Who is Online", even Birthday's showing for them constantly. Been happening so much I thought I'd have a closer look at the memberlist.. Just looking at the list we've had 400+ registrations just in January and this first week of Feb alone, all with 0 posts with the exception of one obvious real member. I'm not going to go clicking every single one of them but just clicking on some at random they've all been advertising some shit.

Should we just wipe the hundreds of accounts that have registered in the last 5 weeks (minus the one real member)? I'll help out of course, not suggesting it to leave Anny to delete them all hehe. It just looks really awful and glaringly obvious. :)

Yeah, I'm not really surprised to see that at all. 4-500 is nothing considering at one point on phpBB2 we had maybe 50 pages worth of the Memberlist being bots. The important thing is that the accounts aren't being activated and they are thus not spamming the forum - something which has gone down considerably (touch wood) since we changed the security measures.

I'll start going through and cleaning up accounts some time this week. We certainly won't be just deleting everything though - every profile needs checking in order to evaluate whether or not it is a bot before any action is taken.

Thanks for making me aware though :)

This one's still wiggling. Maybe we need to get Ed in here for stabby-stabby?

IP banned and account deleted.

I've deleted maybe 50 accounts today in between my work. I'll keep going through the memberlist as I find time this week - gives me something to do whilst waiting on XML generation :)

kk, probably for the best. I'd be surprised if there are any real members though other than the person I mentioned. Even the few which aren't advertising anything in their profiles are still most likely bots who's accounts aren't active and just haven't had the chance to post anything. Just makes the place look bad tis all.
I'll help you out deleting later on this evening and during the week mate :thumb:

Not doing too bad for bots just recently, deleted him and his post :)

Hmm when you said to delete any posts with the bot accounts Anny did you mean even if they're archived already too? Or leave the posts there and just get rid of the account?. Just thinking of the other handful of bots in the archive that could go?.
Down several pages of bot accounts now anyway so the memberlist is starting to look a lot better!

I've just been doing Delete All Posts, which includes those archived (which is rarely more than one or two). Imo the purpose of the Archive is really to keep records of our moderation so that we always have proof that decisions were taken fairly, and we can reference why they were taken if needed. For bots though, they're beyond unlikely to complain - and even if they did, it's the accounts themselves that were the problem. It's also fairly accurate to say that only maybe 1 account in 40 bots actually make posts, so we're hardly losing anything.

Also, yeah. MS has done a lot of work cleaning up the Memberlist whilst I've been busy at work. So a lot of thanks to you for that mate ;)

I'd come up with a delightful comeback, but I'm too busy browsing free and fresh porn from an unnamed source. Sorry :p

Cheers Mech, dealt with :)

Thinking of moderating.. It has been several years since we did any rotating of the general forum / anime forum moderator groups from memory. Perhaps it's time to do it again?. Keeps the groups fresh and gives others the opportunity. That and some people that were heavily active then may not be so much nowadays.
Not necessarily go about rotating everyone but Syro at the very least considering he hasn't been seen since 2009, unfortunately.

Off the top of my head - Peeps like Mech, SL33PY, Isi, Ava and Oz would be good candidates for the general forum I'd say. And Ava, Fen, Mech seem appropriate people to pick from for the anime forum imo. (BD/Strac/Pad/Anny/Myself (all anime watchers) already being able to moderate that forum). Just a thought :)

Remind me about this at the weekend and we'll chat about it. It is a very good point now that there is need for moderation again :)

I forgot about this, my bad.....
What do you think about rotating the general/anime forum mods again Strac?

Twas just something I noticed we hadn't done in a while really. Not like we ever officially stopped, just got outta the habit I'd say.
