OlderBytes forums are back!

Post by Charles »

Years have passed since these forums were swamped by bots and ultimately closed.

With current projects coming to fruition, they're back!

We had some good discussions going here back in the day. Hopefully we'll do even better with Underworld, Iron ruler, Sovereign and Ne.... (oops) to talk about :D ;)

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for stopping by! I'll keep you posted :)
I'll be implementing an Aksimet extension to keep the spammers at bay. It works on the site comments, so hopefully it'll be the last we see of this sick nonsense.

I sort of lost track of this after Underworld. Did your board get overrun by spambots and require nuking?

Yes. It's actually still happening. I'm deleting junk daily for now but there's an extension that is supposed to deal with that. I'm getting around to it :)

If it works I'll regret deleting the old ones back in the day.

Fingers crossed. Chatbots are a plague.
