    Default Misc Clean Up!

    Hey guys,

    Sorry haven't checked in in a little while and just saw the spambot posts in here. The in-line mod functionality is having some major issues but I seem to have managed to delete all the offending threads now (it was buggy and took ages) - at least from what I can see. If not, please let me know.

    Now, Misc, please return to your regularly scheduled death throes.

    Cheers,

    Gavin

    Well, 'buggy' would pretty much describe the state the forums were in for a while (not sure if it was cloudflare's fault or something else). I'm going to guess that instability is what caused the stupid bots to get away with their crap for as long as they did. Thank goodness it's being taken care of, though

    Whew, am I glad to see there aren't as many spambot posts here now...i was beginning to wonder if they would ever be deleted.

    Great work Gavin.

    I can still see them. Oh, wait, that's because mods can still see them.

    Forever tormented by the spectres that rode into town, he shudders alone in a corner.

    They will be back, he fears, and this time, they may find him once and for all.

    Yeah, only mods should be able to see them. I had to soft-delete the threads as the forum is buggy atm and won't let me physically remove shit, which is *not* a good sign for this place, btw.

    I mean let's face it anyone here is ultimately hanging around a virtual graveyard at this point, but at least it's our virtual graveyard and it doesn't belong to the spambots yet.

    Move them over to Infrictions or Reported Posts without deleting them first.

    If I was a dictator, I'd prolly hire an efficient propaganda minister who'd talk my nation over to join in a Pokemon forum. That insane plan would make my land THE PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC POKEMASTERS REPUBLIC OF FINLAND
