5th Insurance ad? I removed way more than that..lol
Holding off on the site news until after the move.
Lol-How many do you think you have removed?
Did 25+ today... I've lost track. ;)
DO you Really think its worth your time to delete a new add every 4 minutes? Need some sort of filter to stop these people-no titles with insurance would be a good start
Stopping the bots is mostly Zach's field, but it's hard to keep people out that do this manually. Block them by IP and they just find another proxy. With the new server we will have more CPU power to install better filters. Yes, in the long run deleting them is best because it adds up and bloats the forum. Also it's dam distracting and annoying. They don't exactly pay us for those ads, so IMHO they are cockroaches leeching our resources.
Yea... there's a name for people who do this :/
Zach said he will do the transfer after I go to bed. ZzzzzZZzzz... ;)
Yea... if all goes well, 3GM will be on a crazy fast server on Friday. Everyone cross your fingers that everything goes well. I don't know about you, but I'll be dreaming about it tonight ;)
First post on the new server! +1 :crown:
+2 for letting Tivon... J)
It's better for sure. Getting to the forums is the slowest part but once you are in, it's nice and fast.
Keep in mind folks that I still have tweaking to do including accelerators. Forums will speed up too once I pull the "crap" threads out (years of spam messages etc)...
So far so good eh!
I'm finding it much faster and let's hope it will be much more reliable. Browsing the site and posting new content now is a dream.
This move was like going from a shelter to the white house ;) Right Zach? ... lol
I just deleted alot of spam really fast. Let's hope Zach can do something about this later. ;)
Will be getting an IP list from Tivon and will start blocking. Looking into filters, though somebody could have a valid post regarding insurance... ie: "If i just bought a $3,000 computer, can I insure it?" 8)
feels a LOT faster actually then a week ago
congrats zach and rodney
maybe its the DNS servers im using cause the forums are painfully slow.
anyone else using OpenDNS??
I don't use OpenDSN.
Zack, More than happy to provide IP's if I can see the IP's.
I use OpenDNS and it all runs groovy for me... :glasses:
I am also using OpenDNS and it runs just fine.
Quotes and User CP is what i want to see. Btw how can we get to our profiles without logging out and then back in.
@Nightingale : for now you can go /user... I am working on the user profiles and such, so it's not really a displayed area since it won't remain the same...
Dear baby Jesus,
Thank you for this wonderful meal of KFC and Slim Jims.
Please help all the cripples and Rodney and Zach to make 3GM better.
And p.s. thank you, for the love of my grandmothers beard, for this much faster server.
Thanks administrator for the fast response.
Any info or ETA on the quote feature?
I really want Zach to focus on the site first and then hammer out all the forum issues. We'll see who the ball rolls, but things are moving ahead and having a fast stable server helps a lot.
Zach has enabled a spam filter, we'll see what happens. ;)
*Edit* Some spam still got in.. lol .. need more filters!
there is an insurance add in every category... I think some capcha's need to be put in place ;)
Perhaps 3 or 4 capcha's one after the other..lol
To be fare with Zach, this seems to be one really advanced
type of spam that is getting through. I thought Google
was better than this? We might have to think about not
excepting Gmail accounts to stop this flood.
Capcha is over rated IMHO, I'd drop it!
What about Cats and Dogs with Asirra? :)
I would not disable all gmail acounts-that would be terrbile for me. Just need some sort of filter like that Asirra
