      Welcome!   03/05/2016

      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

Guys, I have been totally flooded with spam reports, and to make matters worse, the spammers themselves are making random reports to mess up the report center. I have to ask you to, when you encounter spam, send me a simple spam alarm personal message and mention which forum it is happening in. Clearing up the report center is a task in its own right and with this much happening I can't keep up with it.

Thanks in advance,

~tOH.

We have been getting a LOT of Spam on the forums recently.

Is there anything the rest of us can do?  Besides not hitting the "Report Post" button that is?

I'm not sure. I've tried to message Thom Revor but if any of you know if any other admins are active at the moment, that would be helpful. All I can do as moderator is deal with each spammer individually and that is taking a lot of effort. We need to get forum admins on the case. If nothing else, turn off automatic membership, for the bots are subverting that, I think.

Gentle forumgoers,

I have been in touch with Thom and he has looked into a forum upgrade that should make it harder for spambots to enter these our hallowed grounds. :) Please send kind thoughts in his and Robin's direction and let us hope that this will improve matters.

Regards,

~tOH.

Is there any way that the forum data can be backed up in the event that this causes another crash? I certainly hope so ...

Don't look at me, I am just a glorified end user. One of a hundred monkeys typing away and occasionally spouting some inadvertent Shakespeare. :danshiftyeyes:

So...much....white.....

It's different, but I don't think that's a bad thing.  We'll all need to live with it a little bit to get used to it.  :-)

Thank you to Thom et al for their efforts on our behalf!

Okay, just tried to edit a post and was reminded why we switched from white to blue last time.  Typing was invisible again.

Yeah, some of the nav links at the top are unreadable as well because of the white on white.

For some reason, when I try to go to page 6 of New Forum discussion, I get redirected to a movie website. How is it automatically redirecting me?

I am working on it. It is most likely some sort of hijack. I will try to see if blocking scripts will help. I deleted a thread that had been infected with this crap but that may have been overreacting.
