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.

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
