where is it?I've been using that arcade live since it was first put out there for people who threw in a donation, it uploads games and records scores and basically works, as simple as it may still be at this point. last time I looked in Ragtek or someone was going to look at adding comments etc, and after that it's been pretty quite for a while now. Kevin if you're reading this, you should consider doing some crowd funding aka: among us, and getting the ball rolling again with one of the stronger developers we have here.
where is it?
Don't know what to tell ya'; the public messages that were left at the time I closed the site came from three accounts. Cleaning one and then doing a spam cleaner on the next one in a row with the same IP took care of it. If I was online when the spam attacks started I would've closed the site then to prevent it from going further. If you had to handle a bunch of manually, I'm sorry and your efforts are appreciated. In hindsight you should have had my personal contact information like staff members do on my other sites so that they can contact me 24/7 in case of an emergency or problems.From only 3 accounts?!? Are you insane? I personally deleted over a hundred spam accounts and I couldn't keep up! Yes, those 3 accounts were the only ones past the spam filter options, but that doesn't mean that there were only 3 spammers.
Dude, I love ya, but that's just wrong information.
To be honest, I was frustrated as heck trying to clean it up at first until I realized I couldn't use the spam cleaner on them because I didn't change the default options. Me = Dunce. Those spam attacks taught me to change my QA questions on a regular basis and to change the management options on a new install. Longer term, if/as time permits, I'll likely be checking out KeyCaptcha. From reading some of the threads here at XF it seems that people are happy with the results using it.What was happening was a massive battle against the spammers, but those three accounts got in too many posts before I got to them so they couldn't be cleaned by the spam cleaner without Admin help. I did what I could but eventually I threw up my hands in frustration.
