War against spam

Hi together,

because of the extremly high amount of spam i'm doing a software update right at the moment!
for the beginning, the design isn't a real design, but we have to do the updated as fast as possible! so don't worry, the great kde-look will be back soon!

thanks a lot.

kind regards

The update is done and i've created a KDE-Like style in less time, hope you enjoy.

if you see the forum in german language, please klick on "Mein Profil" --> Einstellungen --> and switch from "Deutsch" to "English".

if you find some bugs, please report them here!

i'm very sorry about the big amount of the last weeks! but all my moderators disappeared and nobody told me that! so now i'm searching a new moderator-team, if you're interested, just write me a personal message over this forum of write into this topic.
i deleted hundrets and hunderts of spampostings and topics all the last hours! please help to keep this forum clean and active!

I like it! It's a great look. Just gotta just used to navigating the forums. Though I've seen some spam crop up again. I hope it can get squashed quickly.
In retrospect, everything is funny.

Would a turing test on each post solve it?

Or maybe a limit on posts per user in a certain period of time, eg no more than 1 post in the space of two minutes - realistically to type a post worth reading it'll take at least that, so no harm done to genuine posters.

I don't know why they (the spammers) bother sometimes - really, who bothers to read this stuff?

On second thoughts, they seem quite spaced out anyway, maybe a very simple turing test is the only reliable way to do it.

P.S. thanks for the good work so far

Requiring registration is the first step! Dear lord. I just stumbled on this site as I continue my love for kde 4 and I almost mistook this site for a parked domain. Require registration, require a turing test, and there you go! CAPTCHA just doesn't work anymore!

Hi Herbert,

I don't have the time to be a full blown moderator, but if you temporarily need an extra pair of hands to clean up this mess, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Hi Herbert,

Please let me help clean up all the spam here. I can be a moderator or just a "deleter". Just tell me what to do.

I second that, especially since 4.1 is near and people are already asking if a link to this site should be deleted from the main kde site.

Hi all,

from now on neverendingo is super moderator and helps to hold this forum clean from spam and to move threads that are in the wrong section!

it would be very very nice to get more help! everyone criticize that here is so much spam, but nobody helps!
it's hard for me alone to delete all the time all this spam! i need help.
everyone knows about the spam, so postings concerning this are not needed, helping hands are needed!

thank you in advance.
