Slowly, Bugs Are Getting Fixed
Jun 19, 2007 by broox
Alright dudes, I finally got some time to devote to getting SolidGrind all fixed up. That said, I've got some good news and bad news.
First comes the bad news. Some really annoying bad news. Anyone who has submitted photos since we moved to the new server (April 2nd), you'll need to resubmit your pics. :( I'm super annoyed by this. This one is actually 100% my fault and not Mosso's. I left a server path hardcoded in the photo submission code. It looks like this affects photos submitted by: sam, matrix8967, darkvermillion, ohanzee, slidy, spidersoaper, darkshortyx, kobansora, troy, xjeremiahx, tonyhawk111, soaper16, and qnzwarrior420.
If I ever meet any of yall in that list of names, I hereby grant you 1 free punch.
Next comes the good news.
1. I fixed the admin up so that the site moderators can now post photos you submit. There's still a really big list of pending photos, plus about 20 that failed in the last couple months.
2. I cleaned up some spam in the forum and also blocked over 300 users that I identified as spamming bots. I'm sure there are about 300 more, but I wrote a script that blocked the obvious ones.
3. I removed akismet (the wordpress spam filter) from the forum. It seemed like it was only blocking you guys and never blocking the actual spammers, wtf??? So it's gone - we'll see how it does. It should make posting much less annoying for yall.
4. Users marked as spammers don't show up in the user list anymore.
Now - what else is broken? I've heard a couple photos don't match their captions and/or thumbnails. Anyone know of some off the top of their head?
Also, is there any spam/spammers that I missed?
Things are looking better going forward...
