Last night we got hit with our first spam attack. As the site gets busier we can expect to see that more.
It's important for all member's to assist us with getting rid of unwanted Empirial entanglements.
If you see obvious spam pleas report the post. In the rights and side of each post you will notice blue lettering that says report to mod. Please click this link to let the IRA staff know the post. Mods and admin will get an immidiate notification on their header.
Mods. Keep an eye out in your heard for reported posts. When you see a spammer go ahead and ban them ASAP. I'll also start a thead to dump unwanted spam posts. For now click all three boxes in the ban. IP,USERNAME and EMAIL. If we notice other members getting banned we will need to NOT ban the spammers IP. Sometimes the IP ban can affect other members as well.
For now we've just had one spammer. In the future if this continues to increase and become a daily issue we will switch over to member verification where each member will need to be approved by the mods prior to posting.
If you have any further questions on dealing with spambots please contact a mod for help.
