All This Spam

What is up with the spam filters on Icy-Veins? I have been getting flooded by spam for a few days now.

As in you received personal messages? On the forums, we had to remove our 1-post moderation policy temporarily, so that people could participate in our giveaway. It'll go back to normal once the giveaway is over.

I try to deal with all the spam thread. I check usually every 30 minutes, so they usually stay only when I'm asleep. Sorry for the inconvenience. Only 2 days to go and most of the stuff should be back to normal.

@Damien: No. I subscribe to the forums so I get notified of any new messages, and I'm just getting hit by tons of spam right now.

Glad to hear it will be over soon, though.

I guess you already unsubscribed. If not, I highly recommend you to do so.

Thanks for your patience, I really appreciate it.

Nah. I'll just live with it - I was just wondering what was going on. I just mass delete anything from Icy Veins right now. LOL

Sorry about that. We've had thousands of people register an account to enter our Legion beta key giveaway, and it wouldn't have been practical to manually approve the first post of all these people. So, we chose to manually deal with spammers instead tongue.png

o.O Oh my gosh. Someone is working nonstop to flood the forms with spam topics like a mad man. And you guys are filtering through all of that manually? .... I tip my hat. You all deserve cookies. Seriously.

Especially since I'm one of those thousands of people.... <.< >.> Kinda makes one appreciate things even more. <3

The mod interface makes it easy to delete every post made by a single user. The annoying part is noticing them fast enough.

Well that's honestly a relief to hear. You guys are doing a great job, I hadn't even noticed it until like 3 am. You know, that time, that no sane human is awake. :P But woah, seeing it happen, I tell you. Battling that, even for the short time, has gotta be a full time job.

That is too much to ask of me :P 

By the way, is "100 in another giveaway in the future" a punishment for mods or just a prank, bro? Also, when is the giveaway happening? Just to know when to run away :D

Hahaha! Clearly the take away from all of this, is, the moment you hear beta keys come in, you all need to cash in on a nice two week vacation! >: )

The site will be fine in your absence. Totally wont be on fire or anything. Nope.

Oh snap. Straight up stone cold on these poor guys. *Looks at clock. Realizes give away in soon*

.... Eh heh. I mean. Did I say stone cold? I mean.. Cold stone! Yeah, that ice cream place. Do you like ice cream? Everyone likes ice cream! How about I get you some ice cream? >.> <.<

Okay. I'm done. I swear. Totally couldn't resist and got a little off topic. Keep up the good fight against spammers guys! Go team!

Oh. Oh good. For you see, I have a 12 part plan towards world domination. And giggles are part of them! Mwahaha! But hold that train! World domination aside, we gotta talk about the clearly more important topic here! >.> Icy-cream to Highly efficient washing machine.... Yeah, we're talking about that. Sounds like story time! Imma go get some popcorn.

....

Also, I'm going to just plant a flag right here. Because I feel like I just hijacked this thread. Maybe I should just go start one. Hmm... Kooky's Thread of Supreme Awesomeness. Kinda has a nice ring to it, don't ya think?

Anyway,

I wanted to apologise to everyone in this subforum for the inconvenience. I would also like to thank you for your patience and for being such a great group of people. Sadly, there will probably be a second wave of the giveaway, but this time we will be prepared. 

Som thank you very much, guys :)
