I can and did. Killed the post, banned the poster. Too bad, because I would have liked to get 6800% growth on my investment. I only had two days, however, so it probably wouldn't have worked for me.

I was tempted, but after my experience with the Nigerian prince, I'm a little gun shy...

@finarvyn how often do we get spam posts and registrations?

Not so many, actually. I moderate on the Goodman Games boards as well and we get a SPAM post every day or two, but they have some setting where noobs' posts have to get approved by an Admin (i.e. yours truly ;) ) before the masses even get to see them, so most posters probably don't even realize there is a potential issue.

Here we have no such setting, or at least I've never seen one, so any SPAM you see posted is all we get. I'd say I have to kill one every couple of weeks or so on these boards. Not a real problem at all, actually, and kind of fun for me to nuke 'em. :lol:

No idea how often we get new registrations. I don't need to approve them and I don't get notified about them unless they drop SPAM somewhere. My guess is that we don't get that many, as the TLG boards seem to be pretty low traffic overall.

Ok, if it gets out of control let me know. I put a question in the signup that has you sort different color and metal dragons a few years ago. I was hoping that it would help as it was recommended.

We could possibly look into blocking .ru .info and .xyz email addresses if it becomes necessary down the road. We did that on the knightsofthecrusade.com site and it helped tremendously.

I backed up the board and the database for these forums yesterday. I'm glad it's still going strong!

Don't forget to visit the knights site! We've added new downloads to both the Society Library and the Knights Downloads.

Moved this thread away from Amazing Adventures so as to not clutter up Jason's space. What I should probably do is just nuke the thing, but for the moment I'll leave it in General Discussion because the title is so darned funky. :)

You mean these types of things are scams ???? And so are the Nigerian prince emails I keep getting ???? Drat I was hoping to get rich quick .... :lol:

Rgr on the funkiness of the title ... It did lead to a good post dinner discussion with my girls though, so glad you didn't nuke the whole thread !

It is sad though that a back woods hick Okie girl all of 9 1/2 years old (well almost 10) figured it out before I finished explaining exactly what 6800 % is and some where there is someone that is tempted by it ...

I was kidding. This stuff is all legit. I'm so bummed that I banned the guy, because now none of us will get rich. :(

(P.S. I was born an Okie. Norman, OK. I'm a Sooner born, and a Sooner bred, and when I die I'll be a Sooner dead...) :)

Boomer ! & If you cut me I'll bleed Sooner red :!:

I knew I liked you ;) :lol:

Probably no one here will get rich, but I'm sure we will never get that 6800% rich & fast.

See, if he had said "double your money" or "gain 68%" I might have considered the scam semi-legit, but 6800% is just absurd.

And to do it in less than a week...? :shock:

6800% in 7 days?

That's like First Nation credit interest rates!

Nobody asked me, but I used to own a forum, and adding a captcha to the registration process works wonders.

Nevermind, I see that's been done.
