pocketbikeplanet site hacked

I have come to the conclusion that they don't care about pocketbikeplanet anymore the 3$ a day it's just not enough money for them to worry about moderating the spam attacks that we have been recently getting should we move to a difrent site or forem or what should we do... any ideas ???

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

Does this mean we have to learn Korean now, lol. Why does the dumb azz post it and we can't read it. If you did go to his .com would it be in English, seems kind of stupid.
This site has been sold off a few times since I have been here.

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

Hi there,

Sorry for the inconvenience,

I went into the spam manager in the backend and turned on some features.
I'll clean up the spam.

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

Shot down more spammers this morning. The more we ban, the less IP's they can use = less spam.

To clarify, this isnt a hack, the site was not hacked. Spam bots are a way of life on the net. Gotta handle them as they come in.

The content of the site is not as relevant as any site will be hit by spammers. I've seen them on video game forums, motorcycles, atv's, forums about pet birds, ect.

I've even seen spammers use posts from 4-5 years ago (copy/paste) to confirm their legitimacy as a 'regular' member before spamming a site if there is a posting requirement.

They're just looking for anywhere to post their adverts, and we stomp them at every corner.

Cleared a few more spammers today as well.

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

Looks like this site needs a bit more than that....Any human cam register then turn te account over to a bot program....

Like Ive already explained about where we stand as far as internet power....

Its really bad when a **** poor country like Ethiopia outpowers us....LOL

Looks like this site needs some AT help in the IT dept from Watson........LOL

Well we should have some moderators at least to take control of junior members You and EPR come in every day at least that's a start block any Asian foreign language that's non-english that's the second thing we can do third thing like the IRC chat rooms have a bot of Our Own when people get a little carried away with posting up things too fast it automatically bans them for like 15 minutes to an hour there is no reason for one person to start more then 3 threads a day the way I see it

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

I can always look into getting some more mods here on the site as it looks like the 'current' moderators aren't so current anymore. Do you folks have any suggestions about whom might be up to the task?

Re: pocketbikeplanet site hacked

Hi there,

I have made you a mod now. Let me know if you can modify threads.
For the others, I'll need confirmation that they will take the role before changing their user group.
