Hi all,

Sorry about the bot invasion over the last 3-6 months. I just did a big post clean up over the last couple days, but if you see a spam post I missed, feel free to link it here.

I also changed a forum setting that will hopefully make it harder for bots to show up here. Time will tell though. Fingers crossed!

Please take care, everyone.

Hello everyone, thanks to Mike's help I am now able to use my account and will help with the fight against the bots.
I want to thank everyone who helped by reporting the spam/bot posts, it really helps me find the bots faster. I will try to be as active as I can now.
Sincerely, someone who loves this site.

Thanks to both of you for keeping this site alive. There's still tons of information here that you won't find anywhere else.

Every time I need something from this site I have that remote fear that it will be gone. To my delight it is always there.

If you find the time please work through the first 2 pages of this:

Where are these bots even coming from?

Is there something you can do to make it harder for them to register?

You're welcome, it's a pleasure to give something back to this amazing community that helped me with modding and building maps.

I had that fear too, but Mike told me he does not have any plans to take the site down in the future. <3

Unfortunately, it seems that these are people and that's how they pass the registration page. Mike tried many times to make it harder for bots to pass it and that decreased the spammers but did not eliminate them.

I'll try to remove the spam posts in that subforum maybe tomorrow as it will take some time and I have a uni test tomorrow.

Glad to have you all here!
