We have been overrun by spambots!



I do the developing here and because we have been overrun by spambots I had to shut down the forum. I hope that we don't have any problems with the article section because that's the only thing that works at the moment, beside the video section.

I'll work on that problem as soon as possible I find time to do it, that should be around next week. As said, I just closed the forum. That said, the forum is not accessible at the moment, no error message, nothing, just white space...

I had to delete over 7.000 messages with absolute crappy stuff

Hope that gives us some time to breath and restart with a bang!

keep up the good vibes, you're the best!

No, new background photo would be someone of us paying a "visit" to the owner of the spambots...
Yesterday I saw some "Northface" jackets and i got the urge to kill...
Buddy we are all over the world, and Shizzle will get your address sooner or later...

killling a machine like in terminator or something would be nice as a background picture for the captcha code input... hahaha

btw, do we have some graphic wizzards in our beloved community?

the forum is not accessible, it looks like, but it isn't - damn spambots are not able to post into the forum anymore, also we're not. but I guess that's ok for the moment

@Shizzle Dizzle What would you need, involving graphics? The captcha screens?

@Shizzle Dizzle And I think you should only require captcha at the logon, and at posting new forum topics, maybe even new articles, but not at every comment.

@Mitko J. my idea is to have one for registering, posting for the first time of your session, no matter what it is.

i think some rework of the graphics the site uses would be nice. a little bit more stylish. our own graphics for the captchas would be nice. can you help here?

although i dont comment on everything i keep track of the actions and its nice if there s no forum this way. Maybe not on the subject but i m just writing articles on SEO programs which track all the bloody forums in the world where they can insert their sh.. so maybe that was the result of something like this i hope you can find the way to stop it i keep my fingers crossed :)

Mr Shizzle, as you can see the spambots are posting comments in the articles now as well. I already deleted a few.

Please try to find some time to do something here. With all the Spam and without a forum, this site is slowly dying.

Just deleted a few more. It's not that big a deal when it's just one or two, but who knows when they will be back in the hundreds like before :S

Without K1, this site has not that much to debate about :(

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
