Re: On Spam

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, bdragon! What is not normal is that the email warning about a new topic takes the subject of the new message (which is, as i said, an url) and transforms it into a clickable link. Could it be left as just text? All notifications are sent as plain text ( Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 ). Unfortunately, most mail clients and webmail services automatically create a hyperlink from URLs and email addresses. As far as I know, there's no word censoring for topic titles in phpBB :-...

On Spam

I've got several emails in the past from this forum with spammers trying to sell stuff by putting a message with a "nice" url for subject. That's normal. What is not normal is that the email warning about a new topic takes the subject of the new message (which is, as i said, an url) and transforms it into a clickable link. Could it be left as just text? Thank you...

Re: Missing notifications

... folder for missing notifications? I just checked the spam folder of my Gmail account and found all missing topic reply notifications (one week's worth) there. These e-mails were sent from the same address to the same address for the past seven years, and all over sudden Gmail decides they're spam? That's odd :? I've got another e-mail from **** today. His notifications also turned out to be eaten by an overzealous spam filter. Again, I don't know what to make of this, but it has to be related to the new server. (Perhaps the sender IP has changed.) So, if other members start complaining, we can tell them to put newsgroup[ät]xnview[döt]com on their whitelist. BTW: Topic reply notifications still don't work properly, but this time it's not Gmail's fault. OK, now I know for sure. I did not get the majority of notifications for the “***** ********” topic. What's more: The ones I received sometimes did not arrive in chronological order. I think we should — at least temporarily — change this setting to see if that fixes the problem: This is the number of maximum e-mails sent out in one package. This setting is applied to the internal message queue; set this value to 0 if you have problems with non-delivered notification e-mails. I registered, several months ago, many topics in this forum but I get no more warning mail for weeks, although new posts or topics are open. I don't see any problems in the Error log ( Administration Control Panel » Maintenance » Forum logs ), Pierre. The E-mail settings ( General » Client communication ) also seem to be correctspam ...

Re: Forum problem? Notification for not existing postings?

... campaigns :-\ I assume you're referring to the Shell Extension sticky. Bots often post to the first topic in the forum or sub-forum with the highest post count. I've come to believe that we should also consider this (rather unorthodox) anti-spam concept: This is an experiment: Since most spammers post to the first forum, I have setup a spam trap forum. I will delete all messages in this forum and close down accounts, so do not post here! • The spam trap @TC is both a good and bad idea : It worked maybe 10 times or so, no more… Quickly, the spammers spotted it, then continued to put their craps anywhere in all sections… :| - The strong point in the TC forum is that any Mod may lock the fake accounts. The weak point is that a Mod can only delete the craps in the sections where he has rights; i.e., I've rights in almost all sections, except in the “ User to User ” sections (in extra languages like Spanish etc.) - The Mods of those sections aren't always connected, this leads to keep the craps for some hours… days ! :evil: - Here, we miss a “Cleaner” member, especially in charge of the craps deleting… XnTriq -friend does this the most he can, but indeed he can't 24H / 24 spam ...
