1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

    Same here. Already reported.

    Mods, you might want to take closer look on members who joined today.

    Well, I did complain about this incident here:

    But I don't think there's a thread about scammers in general (there is one about hackers).

    (EDIT: Also, I contacted the mods via IRC. They know.)

    Yes, unfortunately there's no other mod online right now. So I can't ip ban it. Or prevent the bots from joining QQ.

    A flaw I notice now is that bots (and people, I guess) can start PMs without having an approved post.

    Is their a limit to how many PM's one can make at one time? I don't think anyone needs the ability to spam a hundred pms in a minute...

    There seems to be "unique" user bots each time. So that wouldn't be a solution here. Alas.

    If you get one of these PM's, report the PM.

    Several hundred people already have. I suspect they're just going to mass-ban the hundreds of spammer accounts.

    I got an email about a PM like that and no PM, so dose that mean they are being clever or was it just deleted here?

    We probably cleaned up the bot before you got to see the PM. As spam cleaning deletes their PMs.
