We are having a bad spam problem guys. I'm trying to get rid of it when I see it. But we are definitely having an issue with multiple spam bots. Maybe Murder can do something. We don't usually get this bad of spam problem here and my bannings are not sticking for some reason.

i think it has. they already make all of our goods in real life, so it was only a matter of time before they took over our internet lives as well. ;)

i think Murder needs to go back to a you need approval to register and be able to post. most of the new "members" the last few days have been Chinese robots. i

Since Murder is always in absentia for longer periods of time, we could maybe need one or two extra mods and more force for all of those.

^I tell you what, I'd mod their tiny spambot asses if I had the power...and I'd enjoy it. 8-)

Don, we need to bring that Black Sabbath thread back and finish it.

I don't know whats going on.

We do need another mod or two and one who has daytime when the US has night time would be good as well. We need one of our Euro-members to be a mod. And Pistol Pete doesn't come here anymore really, so I'm pretty much it.

Normally being a mod around here literally requires nothing. Everybody behaves and plays nice for the most part. People wise you guys pretty much self-moderate. We typically don't get spam like this either. It is a pain to be the only one when we are getting spam attacks though. And your right, Murder doesn't visit much. He is the only one with more advanced options though for IP banning I would assume or making it so new registers need to be approved before they can do anything. I really can't do much on this one. Plus the bots are getting around my bannings. I did PM Murder a couple times though.

This is getting to be a pain. :billyangry

I'd love to help out as the EU-mod since I'm visiting the site on an almost daily base for many years now, but I know this is up to Murder, not you :sigh

Eleven more spam posts since I left. :sigh

You would be a good choice for a mod Don. Hopefully Murder logs in soon. We need a little more help with this issue and in general. We need like an IP ban or something and probably a change to registry settings, so they can't just register like this. Spam bots are literally about the only thing to register here this last week.

My problem too though is I've tried to ban 16 bots in the last week and most of them are still posting even though they show as banned. They won't go away. This sucks.

That's no way to treat a music taste champion! :mad

Yeah I'd support Don as the Euro-based commanderator of pumpkins.net. ;) I remember a while back Murder once posted his personally compiled list of moderator nominations but alas, either my thighs were too big or I screwed up the talent portion of the competition so I didn't make cut; although it's not like I would take the responsibility seriously anyway :p What about PistolPete and the other guy (was there another guy?), where are those guys?

SamC and PistolPete were the mods. SamC left and I think he was miffed at the pumpkins over something if I remember correctly. PistolPete hasn't logged in forever I don't think. That's the only mods I remember.

Yeah, Frankie sends votes to both DON and KJ to become the new pumpkins.net moderators. Things are so quiet around here for most part (still missing the Music Championship days) and there's no reason we should be clogged up with this spam crap.

Haha, yeah I would be a mod if Blue and Murder wanted me to. After all, I don't start my day without checking this site. 8-)

I just wish Murder would log in.

That would be good. Its all Murder's choice, but you log in daily KJ. Having a couple more mods would be good.

^You're definitely right. These bots are relentless!

Does anyone know Murder's email, or have any way to contact him outside of the site?

I pm-ed him a couple times and you can send an email to him on his profile page and I did that too. I don't know if it reached him though.
