Hmm, are you seeing what I’m seeing (or not seeing?) About 50% of the gravitars on the board are missing. Weird.

I’m working on getting rid of the spam – yeah it’s everywhere.

I just deleted about 10 spam posts – when I deleted them, the gravitars came back.

I was feverishly deleting spam posts and didn’t think to retain the name of the newbie spammer. I want to pass it on to erok if any other spam posts show up. Let me know if you see any spam. Email me – directaxis57 [at] gmail [dot] com

I’ve seen hidden xml code screw up the default settings in another forum which I moderate… odds are, that was what caused the gravitar issue. I doubt that it was even intentional, just bad code inserted by what ever programs they were using to copy/paste the spam.

Thanks for the thoughts, Drewbacca.

Damn, I wish I had saved a copy of some of the spam posts – I’m curious now.

yeah, the board and site is getting a makeover soon, so hopefully that will take care of the issues. there will be a more robust captcha. trying to avoid having to approve people or making you type a captcha before posting a thread

Looks like the gravatar folks just had a temporary site outage, unrelated to spammers here.

Yeah when I tried to open some of the broken images directly earlier I got “504 Gateway Timeout”- definitely unrelated to this board. Also the broken images started well before the spam.

Not that I spend too much time on the board or anything :-)

Oh, I just figured that you were a robot… :p albeit a robot that speaks English and encourages the use of steel framed cycles!
