    Alright we have the new forum set up as a subforum to feedback, an announcement on the top of the forum, and your updated lists as of last night.

    Hope this works for you guys.

    Edit: And with that, we're going to close this thread for now. If you have any further questions please contact one of us via PM or through the community issues forum.

    Maybe slap a sticky on them and/or create a sub forum under Feedback?

    Great job

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

    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.

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

    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.

    What does the board run off? I'm assuming PhpBB?

    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.
    So you are saying we have to wait a whole season?


    (sorry....too soon....)
