No more spam-bots

Written by Steven on Wednesday 22 June 2011
We've increased our anti-spam measurements and deleted all users who haven't been active during the last 30 days and had 0 posts. If you were one of these users, please register again and make at least 1 post to prevent this from happening again in the future.

Why was this necessary? Our site crashed because the user database was so overloaded with spam-bots trying to connect and register. Our increased measurements to prevent them from registering weren't enough, we needed the database to decrease in size, thus we deleted some users (of which at least 99.5% were spam-bots).

Did it work? I guess so. This is a screenshot of the current users online, which is (almost) spam-bot free.
