forum gone wonky?

Travel Forums System Talk forum gone wonky?

1. Posted by mojorob (Moderator 1047 posts) 6y

I've noticed a lot of threads on the forum, fairly high up (with date of July 18 for latest post) that actually date from quite some time ago - 2006 in some cases for last post on that thread.

Seems there might be a problem? I've also sent a message to Peter as I saw him listed online.

Should be fixed now! Thanks for letting me know

I think it's still doing it with certain threads, for example this one which dates back to 2006.

Hi,

On the main page of the forum now the name 'papapa' comes up as the last poster at quite a few forums (africa, off topic, asia, south america etc.), but when I open the respective forum, it doesn't show up anymore? Mega spammer which was deleted?
But why does it still show then?

Cheers
Michael.

Yeah, exactly. papapa and fghjk spammed us for a few minutes and left about 150 entries in that time! It was a bot of some sort. Didn't stop till I banned the IP. I decided to delete all those entries directly through the DB since that's a lot faster, but then it left a few other areas that were still showing their activity. I'll clear up those last poster ones now too.
