Quick update:

The vent worked: the spam infestation is gone, and so are ~800 spam accounts and ~2000 ghost accounts. Unless technical troubles arise in the main engine room, the jump should happen within 48 hours.

Ramses out

Re: For the Attention of Ramses

<<blinks and looks around>>

The spam is ... ALL GONE?! Wow! That was fast work

We'll set up a security detail outside the engine room to deter saboteurs - I hope you've got all the engineers you need in there

The jump, as I understand it, is a switch to another - more secure - server, with the update to come soon. Hopefully

Re: For the Attention of Ramses

Thank god almighty the forums are actually clean enough for me to handle the normal grind of just taking out minor spam posts. Because, I admittedly gave up after a while. But then most of the ad-ware spam just moved to unmoderated forums and with college and such coming up, I just couldn't allot my typical one appearance every 2-3 weeks to clean forums.

But I still come back every time.

this is an old and trite issue, but we Need new mods, people willing and able to do the cleaning up, while ramses does, well, whatever it is he does for a living, i'm sure he has things he'd rather be doing.

See PM - he's not him, or rather not that him, he's another him, a rather nice and (relatively) normal him.

Did we move? Or do we panic at some unforseen future time when it goes 'pop'?

Re: For the Attention of Ramses

To Ramses,

At the risk of sounding rude ... Supermods, please? Secondary admins? Someone who can help take at least some of the burden of admin-ing off your shoulders? Seeing as you're busy in RL (can't blame you, I'm pretty bloody busy myself), we do NEED (and I do mean NEED) someone around here who can do what you do when you're not here which, regrettably, is most of the time.

We're very grateful that you got rid of the bots and stopped them registering ... unfortunately, you've also stopped anyone else at all from registering, thus cutting off our supply of new members, young blood and fresh ideas. The place has gone stagnant. Members have left, and may not return.

We NEED someone with at least a few administration powers around here. So, if you ever swing round here, please take this into consideration.

Thanks
