Hi everyone,
We've had rather a lot of spam lately (especially over in General 40k Discussion). We're working to tweak the sites security and clear the unwanted scarabs from the forums. Hopefully we'll crack it soon.

I'm still unable to flag/report posts. Doesn't show up in the WarpShadow theme.

Ah, good point. (I must admit I'd forgotten all about fixing that. :oops: )

Can someone please ban the new bot that hijacked us?
I feel like an imperial missionary got kissed by a genestealer.

Me too Wolfstone. :(
So far we've squished 42 spambots in the last two weeks.

Things seemed to have cooled down and the new security setting are holding. I'll unstick this post and hopefully any purple ripper is a sign of an active member from now on. :)

Spambots are saddening - I stop on in every week or so, ooh! new posts! oh, it's another spambot, though at least its bilingual. :cry:

Thank you for all the work you do keeping this site running!

Well it seems the spam is back on track.

Give me a flamer and I'll purge the heretic posts. I have quite too much spare time thanks to illness ;)

Cheers
