I'm not dead - PLEASE READ.

Postby Matt » Thu Jun 04, 2009 2:04 am

Guys, I know things have been pretty hectic and out-of-control recently, with all the spam and what-not, I need you guys to know the following:

I'm currently heavily involved with University Exams, one of which I have in less than 12 hours. My last exam is on the 11th of June. I'm moving to my new home on the 14th and then I promise you, the spam will stop. I will modify the forums and put new spam blockers in place, as well as new protocols for stopping spammers entering the forum. We ask that for now, can you guys please hastily report and spam that appears using the report function in the post!

I promise I will sort it out guys, just give me a week and a half!

Aw, poor Matt! *hug*
Good luck on the exams! I normally just avoid spammed threads in anticipation of "wrath of mods"
So it's all cool with me!

Darn, our evil plan to do away with Matt didn't work.

JK of course. We love you Matt. :3

Glad to hear the spam will be taken care off. I got one of those PMs the other day. Blugh.

I haven't gotten any PMs, which just so happens to look like PMS, but have seen a guy spamming. I think what the best thing to do is to go to their profile and look at all their post and report them all.

Btw, chiti love you new avatar! [/offtopicness]

You needn't report all the posts of a spambot, because all reports end up in the same place. Just report one post by the spammer, and it'll help. =)

HAI GUYS!

Write, status report:

Flitting between three houses, moving stuff, selling stuff, paying off debt, fixing up my car and balancing a lot of social and work, I know things have been pretty static around here, but I'll get to it! AFC IS STILL HERE!

I'm planning a small, e-mail interview with Eoin, I'll get onto him via e-mail soon to sort it all out, so we should get some new information. As for new content, new features and such, they will come, I just need solid, interruption free time to sort it which is hard to come by at the moment. The things I want to do will take a fair bit of work but it's do-able and will be done!

Love you all guys!
Matt
