if you didnt post in the wrong forum then that would be one spammy post less.

hey i just was upset after checking the forum yesterday (i only read production section) and first 5 post were spam.

I begin to think they really dont care. Ohterwise a mod would have already moved this thread to feedback. They have thread there about spam prob but probably dont know how to solve this issue. Since im registered here it has become more spam. Never saw so much spam in any other forum.

Something like word blacklist or IP blocking should solve this issue due to type of spam, seem to be mainly chinese spam.

I have a chinese IP and I'm a mod.


We do our best deleting it all on a daily basis, and we are trying to improve our filters, but we can't do much until SDM or Mike start coming back online regularly, they are the admin and so its their job to sort it.

lol, sry. chinese dnb? it exists? let me hear some, r there known artists?

Back to topic...
Im no expert in running a board, run my own website and can program and now how to install one. But i think the information how to block more spam off ur board should be available in special adminstration/running a forum boards/wikis. Cant be so difficult if other board i visit r free from this.

One fast idea:
if a new spam poster registered and makes his 1st post, always a link to shop,.. is in it, for this ur block bot can search, save the account name and analyze further posts of this user if words like shop ipod etc in it and in his first post had a link, auto delete his account or automove it to trash section . I mean blocking spam is an creative art as posting spam is :) And if u cant just block IP cause of our beloved chin users, u have to put more creativity in other spam blocking techniques. Of course if u run an only german speaking forum, u can simply block many IP without loosing much non spamming users.

No big artists atm, but some amateur producers doing some interesting things. Biggest artist is probably Meng Qi (Mengite) from Beijing, he did an album that you should be able to find it online somewhere.
As for events, the biggest one is Phreaktion ( www.phreaktion.com ) in Shanghai, we had 1800 people turn up for Pendulum and 1500 for Goldie, not bad turnouts.

It has a captcha for regstration, but this doesnt help too much, blocking IP, most surfer have dynamic ip, these spam bots probably use temporary proxy servers, so IP blocking in an international forum prob is not that useful.

But just now there were again 4-5 spam post, where u can already read in the title ipod blackberyy, or posts only containing links. Really it cant be so difficult to make a filter rule to automove such stuff to spam subsection.
