I'm also into phpbb forums and I'm surprised there are so much bots and spiders recolting our datas here.

My wife and I run a bunch of moderated chat sites for World of Darkness and have phpBB installed on them so if the admins here need any help or advice on how to configure it then PM me.

Yes, same name but apparently a new account as his post count is lower.

I use the "New Posts" and all I see is spam.

This is getting really tiresome.
I'm reporting posts but it seems kinda pointless.

Can you please make it harder to post or allow some form of community spam bat, just something.

I guess I'll just start looking at other pages (facebook,KS2), I'm hoping to see some beans.

I think I see the problem, she must use Stefan approved castle defenses and they will not be released until KSIII comes out.

I'm liking the "unread posts" option

confident that Johanna will erect defenses to keep the spam at bay - paliusade, curtain wall, abatis??? - I am sure she will protect us

I agree with this. It makes coming to the forum a painful experience; now that I'm using the "View Unread Posts" link, I have to go to each of these spam posts to clear it out.

I agree it is a pain.

What I am doing is just ignoring the obvious spam in unread posts, reading the good posts and then going to the start of the forums and clicking mark forums read.
