Photo album got a big spam attack

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed Jul 29, 2009 8:09 pm

It's going to take a little time to clean it up and see if there is a way to prevent a massive attack again.

The ability for anybody or anyone to post comments will be put on hold for a while. A new plan will be made soon so real comments can be allowed to continue to be collected.

I think I have it cleaned up

I think I deleted the thousands of posts advertising meeting women in every foreign country known to man. Maybe I have anyway.

I think I have it fixed now where nobody but me can post a comment.... I think I have done this.

I'd still like any comments you care to make for any of the photos. Just email me what the comment is, and who you are. and what photo you are talking about.. I'll be glad to add the comment under your name. If you have more than a few comments I can grant you access and you can do it yourself just like it was to start with.

I'd like to manage this a bit better, but have no ideas at the moment.....although that will change.

Here are a few new ideas to open up the comments again

Postby Niner Alpha » Mon Sep 07, 2009 1:30 pm

To start on a new plan, I opened up all the reunion albums to return to the ability for anybody to add a comment under any photo. No permission is necessary. I will monitor this to see if we are attacked by spam on any regular basis again or not.

I made Ron Raymond the moderator of his own album as an experiment....although he didn't ask....I just wished it on him as I figured he wouldn't mind helping me out in trying this idea out. Anybody who has an album of photos sent to the site and wants to be able to moderate it....that is, delete or add comments, re-title, move pictures around, add photos, delete photos, and other general management, let me know. It is now possible. If I can entice multiple album moderators the spam can be kept at a minimum and adjustments can be made if there is some significant machine spam attack like what happened a few months ago. It will also allow individuals to control their own albums and even control at their own command if they wish to continue to show any of their photos at all in light of the other site or any other reason.

Didn't last long

Just deleted 360 spam posts on Russian brides. :x

Ron can still edit his album and the Reunion Albums. Anybody wish to control their own photo album that offer still stands. Just contact me. I need to work on a revised plan so comments can be added. In the mean time if you want to add a comment to any picture, say what one and post it here. I will add it for you.

Ah, man, just when I was getting to pick the girl (escort) of my dreams! :oops: LOL. Guess you'll have to watch those 'tricky dicks' when it comes to spams, huh Robert. :o
Good luck on coming up with something like we discussed and your son can figure out.
