Well it's been what, 5 days since I went "admin" on the sign-up. Not a single legit user has come of it out of 100 or so. But the board seems clean now; that's all I care about!

Heh yea I figured I better go check my forum and switch it to admin aprove, and went through and deleted about 10 spammer names.

Oh how I wish i could get my file attachment thing to work :(

Mike have you noticed any difference in bandwidth use from the file upload size restrictions? It would be nice to cut things back so it could be put on a cheap webhoasting package.

Talking like a pirate does not qualify as experience, this should be common sense, as pirates have little real life experience in anything other than smelling bad, and contracting venereal diseases

Depending on what your problem is, this might help...

By default, PHP has a stupidly low upload restriction and will simply crop the connection if you overdo it, you get some comepletely random error in the logs, too. It's a php.ini thing as opposed to being a phpbb thing. That might be biting you.

Lord, how I hate php.

Sorry guys,
I just started a new thread on the same spammer thing....
Knock it on the head.
You think some people would know better and read first hey! (slap on wrist)

I did offer any assistance with this or other chores around here if i could be of help? Chase up dodgy accounts or something?

The new accounts poping up (i think i saw about 10 come up thisarvo), let alone whatever else they are doing, must be putting a strain on things?

Drop me a line if theres something i can do for the site Mike.

Thanks, Rossco. I may just need another mod.

On another note, I wonder if your dog is deaf from testing the other day? ;-)
