    Default MKF acting up - And, background updates to come.

    Just letting MKFers know if you see any strange problems in the next few days, the server is acting up and has to be fixed. I have been unable to get into the host so I am working with the webhost to deal with this. Just a heads up.

    Sometime soon, I will also be updating the software on the forum - I've missed a few security patches. I have been pretty busy so I have been admittedly, neglecting the forum - but I do know that these things need to be addressed to make MKF more secure.

    Okay, I've reuploaded all the vbulletin files, removed the suspicious files, and am currently deleting all these spam users who keep on trying to join us - not sure I can do anything about that except enable reCAPTCHA on registration. I disabled COPPA registration since it seems like every user who signs up was being put in that group. I no longer moderate new member registrations, but with reCAPTCHA, I hope that's okay.. otherwise things are going to look to be an utter mess. I may have deleted actual registered users by accident (but no active users - I only deleted people who had 0 posts and registered in the last couple of years who were put in COPPA, not officially registered..) I apologize for this hassle, but I ask users to register again.

    Those who have tried to contact me, I realized my inbox was maxed out, so no notifications were going through. I've emptied everything and now inbox notifications are going through.

    Sorry guys about all the spam lately - I decided to not moderate new users anymore (lots of valid people were getting blocked) -- I installed a new Spam plugin that will take a bit of learning in how to configure, plus I think it learns as it goes (with Akismet, for those who may be familiar) but I have to install the key for that too.

    You should see the amount of spam users that register though - apparently I'm not the only one seeing an uptick of spam users, if I search for solutions, it appears that a lot of forums are seeing the same flux of spammers...
