IMPORTANT

If you invite a new member to Molotov, please post in this thread so that we know their username or something and can approve their accounts more quickly.

That's the thought. Problem is looking at IPs and emails, it becomes less clear. Like Alhadji uses a 10 minute email address.

If they are using 10 minute mail I'd say ban 'em outright.

All of these users's IP addresses have a spam track record. I'm in the process of banning a shitload of IP addresses based on a list from Stop Forum Spam, as preventative medicine.

EDIT- Ok, so in total about 128 000 IP addresses have been banned.

So as it would turn out, that was a really shitty idea.

The addition of 128 000 IP bans overloaded the website. I had to go into the SQL database and manually dump all the banlist data to get everything back up and running. :geek:

TL;DR CWest is bad at forum security and should not be trusted to do anything with the banlist before his morning coffee.

Does anyone know/claim responsibility for inviting "Rebel_Wolf"?

Would anyone like to claim responsibility for "Vermilion"? They are apparently British.

I have sent a PM to Alexcosta on Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:42 am and it is still unread.

I have also sent a PM to BgKnight on Thu Sep 13, 2012 6:00 pm and that too is unread.

What happened to them?

BgKnight has walked off the edge of the world. Hasn't responded to messages anywhere for over a month, and last Facebook activity was 23 September. Given the life issues he was going through last time I talked to him, I'd personally give him all the space he wants.
