Default Comm Center rules to follow

Just a quick note as to the rules we ask you to follow while using the Comm Center.

There are only two rules we ask you to following while using the center.
1. No pissing matches while posting on this site, please take it off-line.
2. No nude pictures are to be posted on the site. Military types are not the only people visiting here....enough said

We also ask that you do not post your phone numbers or address in your profile. Your opening up a can of worms if you do, but in the end, it's your call.

That's it in a nutshell

Default Smut peddlers invaded your site.

Attention Cpl. Miller : I logged in to reply to the posts from you and Ipscone about my Smartphone.

I did not click on them but it looks like a pornographers have snuck onto your site. About 3 pages or so. Thought you would like to know before your site becomes infected and frozen.

Out.

I have gotten rid of almost all of them and I'm working as fast as can.

I've dumped a bunch tonight. Banned some. Blocked many.

You had email verification turned OFF. That allowed anyone to sign up, anonymously. I turned it back ON and there are already 48 new attempts to register.

When I started there were 600+ members. A few minutes ago it was well over 1000. There are hundreds that have gotten registrations. I'm trying to find a way to block delete them. I can easily see who they are but there isn't any easy way (yet) that I have found, to prune all of them at once. But I'm looking. Otherwise, I'll just begin deleting them one at a time. There really isn't any reason to ban them. I just delete them. I guess banning does prevent them from reusing the email but that's about it.

I just delete them, and force them to go through email verification. That way, I can delete them all at once. The last count of ones who have verified was 934. That's a good way to check on new registrations, but I think the legit number is under 600.

Update: I made a few minor changes that won't affect any current user but should stop the spammers, for a while. I have several dozen caught in limbo right now, none are posting. Only 2 have gotten through, since these changes, but they have to have moderator approval to continue. They won't get it.

Going to see if we can get through the rest of the day, with no spammers, and no intervention.

If you go to the top of forum and scroll to see who's online, you'll see a large list of people trying, but none is able to do anything, for the moment.

Like Yellow Footprints, I should have turned on email verifications a long time ago. If we do use the ban feature on IP addresses instead of email account that would also stop these fuckers.

Well they damn sure tried to hit it hard today. I normally scroll down to see who is online and has been online today and saw a whole bunch of obvious spamer names listed...

I believe the changes that have been made to the site will greatly hinder their activities....

As we do some final cleanup enjoy the site, I'll get back with a sitrep as soon as I have one.

Without naming names I'd like to thank all of you that understood the emergence and jumped feet first in getting this site back on track.

I am sure many of those that come here have no clue what it takes in manpower and time (no fault of their own) in running a site like this. MANY of the admin's and some members go back to the 90's when I ran another web site. The men and women who work in the background put in many hours doing what they do best....supporting our military family......

From all of us here at the Comm Center and Yellow Footprints we hope your enjoying the fruits of our labor......Semper Fi

Default Appreciation...

This last week has been one hell of a week for us around here. With the site issues and me in the hospital for two days, all I can say is we are sooooo lucky to have the administrators we have on this website. The hours they put in and the knowledge they bring to this site is nothing less than OUTSTANDING.

As you can see by the listing on the bottom of the front page, a lot of our Russian friends are still listed, these names will disappear shortly.

I've never been one to list the names of those who work behind the scenes on the web site but I can tell you their dedication and efforts are so appreciated.

Anyone who says they can run a site of this size on their own is simply....full of shit.

One last thing, while our Russian friends were attacking this site, they also were attacking Yellow Footprints. As the admin's finish their work here they are also looking at YFP for any repairs needed over there ....Hot damn the Marines have landed.....Semper Fi

Default Update 8/10/2019

As an update as to this Russian invasion we're having, we have a taken a number of steps.

1. The front page listing of names of who has visited the site today has been removed. So as new users registered you will no longer see these names. If these assbites get off on seeing their names in lights...THAT, has ended as of today.

2. It has been suggested by our admin's that we approve each new registers before they gain access to the site. I suspect this will take effect here shortly.
