    Happy Thanks, Kevin!

    I don't know if you will see this, but in case you do, thanks for saving TPM from the spambot invasion!

    Most of the features are working now. There are still some issues with infractions and signature edition, but we can finally make and delete posts, and the Admin CP is working just fine!

    Also thanks to Gavin, Jeff and everyone else who's been deleting Spambot posts!

    I'm also quite surprised DragoKnight was banned (I was rather curious to see how many more posts he would make in his Nuzlocke topic in the RBY forum, provided that nothing would befall it, since I can imagine it would be a crushing blow to him if all the Pokemon he was using in the Nuzlocke fainted).

    Nonetheless, I am sooo glad to see the forums back to normal.

    Hopefully we won't ever have another spambot invasion like this one again.

    That was most likely a mistake with the spambot cleanup.

    Did Kevin implement a captcha system? I'm fairly sure that would ensure spambots would never appear on TPM again if it was implemented (and all other spambots were deleted from TPM so that they could not re-register).

    There is a captcha installed. I'm currently trying to figure out why it's not working.

    It's working now! And it's already stopped 4 spambots from registering!

    And now the only members online are real people! I wasn't expecting this to happen, let alone so soon! Thanks a lot!

    Oh, and also thanks to shazza for sending the letter.

    I still can't reliably see all new posts... for example, Tony's Nuzlocke thread only shows posts through 3 July.

    But yay for a functional tPM!
    so you got some curb appeal
    but can you cook a three-course meal?
    or are you just a present waiting to be
    opened up and parceled out again?
