Spam and Admin Upgrade
Edit: Admin has upgraded the site. Thanks admin!
A few points on the upgrade:
- New accounts now require a valid e-mail address. This isn't something that has to be enabled, but it will help keep "fake" accounts to a minimum. Discussion in the comments is encouraged.
- The new validation requirement seems to have kicked a lot of our more recent registrants into the "anonymous" category. Flipped a switch so this shouldn't happen in the future.
- Also, something funky happened with the user images, and the website assigned some existing photos at random. I'm not sure how to fix this, probably the best bet is to re-upload a new image. It accepts larger images now anyway, so it's a good time to put something a little more hi-res up there.
- Right now, BART RAGE has two moderators. If you are interested in being a moderator send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Someone who's good with Drupal would be nice
I'm working on getting rid of the spam that's accumulated. I haven't logged in for a little bit. The spam filter has been busted for a while but it looks like someone has found us for their posts. Unfortunately, I don't have any control over the back end of the site, so it'll likely happen occasionally. I'll try to get on and clean up more often.
