      Seriously though BroncoSexyDaddy has a good idea there with putting it back up for a week to see what happens, what harm could it be?
      Thanks,it won't hurt to try it out again!

        As for being listed as a starter, I am not sure if you can do this yet but you should be able to change that in your User CP.

        Click on Settings
        In Settings, click on Edit Profile
        Scroll down until you see "Custom User Title". You may be able to edit this from Starter to whatever you wish I THINK. Give it a shot.
        Well look what the wind blew in.

        I thought we could view a profile and see the status of a member such as yourself but I didn't see it. OH and BTW...Tricky how you made yours all black.

        Nice to see DS!!!!!

          UPDATE: It has been determined that the Members List seems to have been the issue with the slow down, so they do not recommend reinstating it.

          We are looking at another possible solution, so please have patience.

            (like waiting for Tony to get back lol!)

            Just kidding, but it would be nice if there was some other way of having at least an abbreviated list of some sort.

            I'm sure your all working hard to come up with something that may work so thanks for the effort to all you mods.

                    It's not the list itself that seems to be causing the problem. We think it's from bots crawling the user list. I'm almost positive that it's spam bots doing the damage.

                    I do like your idea, though. I'm not sure it's possible. I'm not techy enough to know.
                    If it really is spambots I think the best solution would be to make features like member list, search and even viewing other area's of the forum unavailable without registering and then setup strict captcha plugins to prevent bot programs from being easily able to register (I don't know if we have captcha now, if we don't we honest to god should.)

                    • Most bot scripts can and will bypass captcha though.

                      Some by bruteforce, others by hiring cheap human labor (typers) to manually register on targeted websites. I've also seen spammers setup bogus websites with iframes to lure people into solving captchas for them, sending the information back to the bot script.

                      It does filter some but not all so yeah, better than nothing, I guess

                        We asked about members only access to the Members List and was told that it's not feasible for something like this. We do have captcha installed.

                        Spam bots are one of my pet peeves. A couple of years ago, after a bot attack, they installed a program that blocks thousands (literally, thousands) of bots a day.


                        The thing with the Members List. They're not trying to register. They're just sitting there, looking/searching. Just the volume of bots trolling the list is enough to slow the boards down.

                        As EM said, we're trying. One idea was to manually list the levels and update them periodically. Until someone pointed out to me that the only list we have access to is listed alphabetically, not by CP achievement.

                        Please know that we are not ignoring your request. We just don't know what else to do.

                            This was truly a team effort. I hope you all are happy with it. If not, don't send me the complaints.
