Bhaern Quel Levels Up

Postby Shir'le E. Illios » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:22 pm

I've just promoted Bhaern Quel to be moderator for the Chosen of Eilistraee Board forums (that's General Discussion, On Promoting Joy, etc). He was already moderator for the Roleplaying Board, but can now moderate the other forums as well.

I should've done this long ago. And was planning to before Christmas, but the Holiday season got away from me.

So join me in congratulating Bhaern on his increased responsibility, which I know he'll handle quite well. :)


Love -x-x-x-

Been busy this day, a bot I guess. Must have deleted at least 50.
I do not have (or could not find) power to block that user.

It is not that. The bot is only here part time. I can catch up for a time and that user is not logged in. Sometimes a post every 10 minutes, sometimes three posts in 2 minutes.
It might be pulling off highjacked computer, it might be poor connection, what every it is I can not stop it from posting.

Oh a person decided to write the bot, it is possible another person selected us for use of the bot.

I would not waste time PMimg or emailing the user name - in fact it might have high risk to do so.

The posts do have a sort of pattern to them. The fact the user does not appear to notice that posts have not lasted long and the discussion about him not yet noticed.

We might have been a target, and user away for weeken. Computers work 24 hours a day every day when program set up to do it.

I think you might need access to the ACP to ban users.

Go to any user page (use mine) and you should see two links: "[ Administer user ] [ Banning ]". If you can see those links, you can ban spammers. If you do not see them (or at least if you do not see the second one) you will need to get an administrator to do the banning for you.

Oh I can ban users now, deleting posts as well. Just some bots were at the time hard to deal with. Your report has been processed, not sure why it got though. Unless after approved it was edited by that spammer.

I've seen some stealth-spammers that post non-spam messages and then go back later to edit posts and add spam links. (I think they figure that forum staff check something once and never go back.)
