View Full Version : We have to do something about the spam

03-01-2009, 11:15 PM
seriously admins. o_O

03-01-2009, 11:53 PM
All they can do is keep removing the threads, they can't ban the users so the posts are just gonna keep coming until Rick decides to finally chime back in.

I am sorry everyone. We are doing the best that we are able to do.

03-02-2009, 01:07 AM
I hope they find something soon, this is suposed to be a family safe website right? Some adds contain dirty images... :oops:

Thank you Spencer.
Trust me CodynThor.Angelrose and I are doing what we can.I'm taking more small brakes during my work day and at home to check the forum for this kind of ..... ( I rather not say it ).Angelrose and I are no Admins just moderators.The only power that we have is to delet posts and that's it.Even if we would ban those people that post this kind of ....., all they have to do ( and are doing it right now any way ) is open a new account with a new user name.Rick hasen't came on this forum to take care of things since a looooooong time.Angelrose and I are on our own to take care of this.Sorry.Trust me we wish that we would have all the power that a Admin has so we can keep this forum the way we want it ( clean and friendly ).

well we appreciate your efforts ^-^
i just hate hate hate spam

Thank you txrepgirl and angelrose for all you do for this site, and for volunteering your services when it can be such a pain.

For anyone out there not used to seeing this stuff, resist the urge to open it and *never* click to open anything in the messages, even if they promise to show you nasty stuff! Anything clickable in those types of spam is usually a trap that downloads a virus or tracking cookie that can lead to identity theft before you know anything has happened.

I know the mods are doing their best to keep the forums clean and I appreciate that work.

But its the spammers! They post all kinds of rude content - and sometimes its the same people posting the same spam in other forums.

03-02-2009, 03:47 AM
Thank you so much every one for the kind words.I can't promise anything but I have a idea what I might can do about this ..... ( you know what ).I rather not say it on the forum what I'm going to do ( in case the people who put the spam on here can read what my plan is ).If you would like to know feel free to pm me.If it's a name that I don't know ( like a new user I will not respond to the e-mail for savety reasons ).Please keep your fingers crost for it to work.Thanks so much.I'll keep you all updated.

HernandosMom.You gave some great advice.Thanks :D :wink: .

Yes, you're better off not even using the words like p**n. Then when a search taps the word, this site gets targeted as a spam market (or worse, a virus playground).

03-02-2009, 07:37 PM
Sorry I'll edit my post. :oops:

03-03-2009, 01:25 AM
Your right Laura.That's why we all have to be careful how we say things.Not just to keep this forum clean but because of the things you have mentioned.

Thank you crimsonrazac.Sorry, I haven't pm you back yet.

03-03-2009, 04:14 AM
gahh... how many mods do we have ? just u 2 right? angle and txrep?

03-03-2009, 04:35 AM
lol, Yup, we are working and since this is really a family, friendly forum it's not work at all until the spam came ... :x

03-03-2009, 04:44 AM
angel.. and sam.. i sent u both pms..

03-03-2009, 05:08 AM
I pm you back.Yes, it's just angelrose and I that are moderators.We would like to have another moderator ( we wanted to make laurarfl a moderator before ) to help us out but the problem is that Rick has to set it up in his computer ( or the people hosting the site ) so the new moderator will be able to delet things, too.We can't do that.There allot of things that we would do to better this site but our hands are tied most of the time.Sorry.

03-03-2009, 04:48 PM
( we wanted to make laurarfl a moderator before ) YAY!!! She would deserve it.

03-03-2009, 11:56 PM
Yes, she would.We wanted her to be a moderator right at the time when Rick started not to come on this forum any more.I e-mailed him to see if she can become a moderator but I never heard anything back from him.

03-04-2009, 01:37 PM
Well, shucks. Thanks for the kind and flattering words.

03-04-2009, 07:47 PM
i wish i could get rick to reply to me on myspace... but naw.. he just reads the message.. thats it.. what a turd.. ill have to try to get in touch with him again

03-04-2009, 07:59 PM
meanah, thank you very much for trying. We really appreciate it.

They just keep coming back ... :x and I feel very bad for our members and their tegus ..

03-04-2009, 08:02 PM
Daniel.Please do me a big favor.When you are trying to get in touch with him again please ask him if he is willing to sell the " www.thetegu.com " forum to me :D :wink: .I'm realy thinking about bying it.I would hate for this forum to go down hill if things keep going on like this.

03-04-2009, 08:16 PM
ok yeah i will ask him.

05-13-2009, 04:52 PM
This website is not mine to sell. It is Yours! Yours, his, hers, and mine. It's our website. It's OUR Tegu Community, :) I just pay for it and help by adminning it. The vice admins and super mods also own it, they donate their time. The members who help others own it. I would never sell it. If I couldnt afford to host it I would try to give it to one of the staff who could afford to run it, but I will always do my best to keep it up and running.

As far as the spammers.. well.. That should be resolved for now :)

I think it's a great community we have here ..;-)
