I HATE SPAM, lol
 
Go and fuck off you fucking ignorant spammer. No one is interested. Fed up with this spam.

@zilmar
Can't you block posts with no English?

Maybe put in a question for posting? Like something simple like 'how many bits is the N64?'

I use a forum for zx spectrum 1 bit music. To post, you need to answer the question, "What cpu does the zx spectrum use?".
It stops all this spam, which must be more annoying for you than me.

Melchior 16th June 2017 11:01 PM

Hey Frank74 I moved your post into its own thread so I could... Delete the spam thread.. and UNLEASH THE ALMIGHTY BAN HAAAMER!!! lol
:D :eek: :cool: :p

Plus I gave your rage a cool TITLE! lol ;p


yeah for some reason PHJ64 forums seems to be soo POPULAR with the SPAMMERS... CRAZY..

Frank74 16th June 2017 11:25 PM

My fuse has been burning slowly for a long time. I finally went BOOM!. Almost everyday there's more spam.

Melchior 16th June 2017 11:35 PM

lol BOOM lol yeah the amount of SPAMMER accounts being created every single day.... with zero posts ...

zilmar 17th June 2017 03:57 AM

I will be updating the template of the forum soon. After i finish that I want to look at recapture (https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/invisible.html) will see if that helps

Melchior 17th June 2017 04:13 AM

lol cool... This will bring about a NEW WORLD ORDER in the history of PJ64.
WMahahaha :D :p :cool:

Melchior 17th June 2017 01:45 PM

Let us DECLARE OPEN SEASON ON SPAMMERS!! :p:D:D:cool:

Frank74 17th June 2017 05:31 PM

Hooray!

Recaptcha looks like a good idea. Less of a bother for real people if it can really detect a real human from a spammer.

Edited to remove my rant....

retroben 17th June 2017 06:51 PM

Too bad Recaptcha has gotten really annoying over time.

The last few times I had to go through them,they had picture puzzles and some of them are really tricky,making me fail several times due to confusion out of what it wants and they are also heavily distorted images to make it tougher *COUGH*jpeg artifacts *COUGH*.

Melchior 17th June 2017 07:36 PM

WERE DOOMED lol x(

According to the site:
Now we're taking it a step further and making it invisible. Human users will be let through without seeing the "I'm not a robot" checkbox, while suspicious ones and bots still have to solve the challenges.

So that means it can somehow detect real people so they don't have to solve the challenges. Expect it uses some kind of spying technology to do that.

Melchior 18th June 2017 07:06 AM

GOOD GAWD, THE AUDACITY of this EVIL SPAMMERS... :mad::p:eek:
I just removed a SPAM w/ url link from this very topic.!!
and UNLEASHED THE ALMIGHTY BAN HAAAMER!!!! lol :D

HatCat 14th August 2017 03:31 AM

You are very good at your new moderator job, Melchior. :D

Keep throwing out those ban hammers! Even more than that dumbass on the cloud floating over Mario in those sky worlds.

I used to go to a chess forum, and the CAPTCHA there was checkmate in one move. You clicked on the chess board from some random position stored in the site's games database, and if your move was a mate in one your post went through. Surprisingly easy given the poor intelligence of the people who were still able to post.

I wouldn't ask zilmar to block non-English posts though. Depending on what qualifies as a non-English post I'd say half the people here wouldn't be able to post anymore.

OOh yeah!!

ALMIGHTY BAN HAMMERS ON RAPID AUTO-FIRE!!
;):D:D

Frank74 19th September 2017 09:24 PM

Another irrelevant post, unrelated to topic. Is Jamardenty an AI bot, or English second/third language? They're not offensive or adverts so leaving be.

The power to ban offensive spammers is great. Just done my second one within 2 minutes of spam post. BWAH HAH HAH!!! :)
I have the POWER!!!

HatCat 20th September 2017 04:40 AM

I don't remember Jamardenty very well.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it kept posting cool stories from bros who just posted that already in the thread. So I think it's a bot auto-posting what other posts on the Internet have said.

If you're not sure if human idiot or troll bot, you could look up the IP address to see if it makes sense. If it's traced to India or whatever I seriously doubt it could be a live person doing copy pasta.

Sure is. :D You and Melchior must be having a lot of fun banning spammers. On another website I deleted posts all the time and banned people off the members list from A-Z just to spite them for fun (no jk).

Heh, one of those All Hail Donald Trump spammers posted a huge thread with 10,000 characters of straight WWWWWW (infinite W's here...), and I pulled a the_randomizer and quoted the entire post just to say, "Could you spell that for me slowly please?" At the same time RPGMaster caught all the spam and deleted it. I was so sad. :(

ZILMAR THE GRAND is the FINAL ARBITER of JUSTICE here!!! ;) :P
MuWHAHAha

HatCat 20th September 2017 12:57 PM

I can see quite plainly that there are four, but I guess communication isn't so important, or two out of the four of you wouldn't have their user titles forced to "Senior Member" even though they're mods.

haha..

I don't know anything about.. forcing titles... ooh maybe because there is a limit on how many titles can be displayed at once... hmm..

there is
- Zilmar (SUPREME ADMIN!)
- myself (SUPER moderator!)
- and one other
active.. there is other admin/mods from the original/old crew.. but none are active...

that I know of...

ooh so I checked Frank74's account.. hmm.. TURNS out he is listed as a super mod... hmm... news to my ears.. ;)

Also RPGMaster is one, so that makes four. At least he actually does stuff; theboy181 I think was just put as a mod because he posted in zilmar's suggestion thread about being a nice guy when posting while I was being a meanie. :p The funny thing is overtime his user title got changed back to Senior Member. I really have no idea why zilmar would do that. Because it matters what I think of people, I guess?

I'm not even sure if Smiff, Gent etc. are still moderators since with them it's the opposite. Their displayed user status is admin, but I think internally they may have been pruned off the list.

Frank74 20th September 2017 01:56 PM

Yes I'm a mod now, just banned another user who posted a long list of email addresses.

I'm on different time zone here in UK, so thought I'd ask zilmar if I could have the power to delete spam and ban users. I see LOTS of spam, it makes me crazy.

Melchior 20th September 2017 02:25 PM

ooh yeah C.R.A.Z.Y. lol :p ;)

the amount of NEW SPAMMERS is like the FLOOD...
UN ENDING SPAM HELL...

BUT WE WILL PERSEVERE... !!!!!

thetruegent 17th November 2017 10:12 PM

Speaking of which, i am forced to spam just to help someone... Crazy

ExtremeDude2 27th November 2017 03:44 PM
