I have an account already and once had to delete a thread that GF posted, some link had me black listed he posted I forget what. I also had some other sites that would check my forum out also that was handy, Ill share if I find them again.
I just reformatted my computer and it's all over the place with my info, Firefox isn't helping either since my old add-ons don't work on it now so I can put everything back.
I might have to check out that mod though, I like to keep things nice and safe :)
Oh I do have site lock on my forum so it's verified safe :) I just never learned how to put the icon up because I'm a dummy :confused1:

Site lock is a verification system usually for people who sell stuff on their site.
Oh your talking about my logo most likely with the bees and flowers :) I put that up the first day of spring :) I thought about Memebee when I put it up with the bees.
I like to make new ones for each holiday, and for the season, I guess Summer will be next .

Here is one site I was talking abut http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

I think it's good to have a second opinion :) Hey, just wondering if you use any spam list to help keep spammers out, I have been looking up a few and putting them in the ban IPs in the admin panel.
It helped like a day for me but then they was back lol

oh no lol:(. hm no spam lists just spam countermeasures that came with the forum software (antibot question)

but also, under security settings (that's under general tab) for "Check IP against DNS Blackhole List" i checked yes.. not sure whether that's' doing something but it might.

It didn't do anything for me it seemed to check the DNS black hole list thing, It don't seem to do anything. I do have the question thing set up and it helps a lot, but you still have some spammers manually signing up still, or I do.
I added a few 1000 ips to the permaban list yesterday, Ill see how that does. :) I kind of enjoy seeing where they are from .

oh i have spammers manually signing in too! i just don't bother with them, there are not that many, one every 3-4 days. i think i'll just purge the list of users eventually to get rid of them. also, they never post, so not really sure why they bother reg'ing. probably some trick where they add you up to some of their lists for future spamming:))

hm, let me know what the permaban list does.. in my experience IP permabans can be useful (mostly against manual forum attackers) but can be a double-edged sword.

Well no spammers the last two days here, but I posted a lot of IPs from Russian, and China, but I also reset the question in the security for registering .
I don't have a known forum like yours so it might stop it all for a while I hope. :)

yes they did! there are many cool communities out there and looking at some of those site's professionally done design made me feel really small lol:(
and i don't mean forums' design but those websites that make free forums for others (what i would like memebee to be), some of their home pages, 'signup" pages etc. are really cool.

Hummm, Ill be changing mines look a little soon but nothing drastic, I just wish I could optimize the sql. I don't need all that for my little site, but you might want to do like it does and try to expand, I don't know how you would go about it though.

oh me neither blue - but i have an idea about how to change this forum!:) i asked the vancouver guy if he agrees to 'surrender' back this forum to me lol and he agreed.. so i'm going to change it a bit. really nothing spectacular but i'd like to get rid of arcade and change the layout a bit and rename it. i was thinking to make it a forum for phpBB forum owners - a place for general chat cuz even the general chat over at their official forum is heavily moderated - which is probably why that forum is so useful but i was thinking to make this place completely different - not so much completely useless but more - free, so to speak:)

so at first i was thinking to call it something like "phpBB tech talk". but more i think about it more i'd like to call it "blue frost and i":)).. so brace yourself blue, you and i are going to become forum celebrities;))
