just thinking about it -
will there be statistics for all those deleted spam accounts too ;)?

Maybe with a badge for keeping the house clean :roll:
:D
I actually have those figures…

If you like I could probably post them when I get home
of course you G.A. and G.D. will be way beyond anybody else here - but still I kind of would be curious, since I found some myself already how many there are ;)

I don´t know if I should now call the impressive or depressing ;)
I mean, think about it, what kind of virtual world that is, in which some people seem to get money for spamming sites like ours here

The spammers use bots to find sites, automatically make accounts and put in pre-made spam messages. They get a very small amount of cash for each post they put in a forum. If they had to make the accounts manually, they would never go after a site like this; they would stay with super size sites like ign.com or mmorpg.com. But, since they have bots that can do it automatically, they attack any site their robotic envoys find. Now, a lot of the bots only post once on our site, because there is a 5 minute delay between posts, so the cheap bots give up and go find another site. The 'luxury' bots will see the delay and keep coming back, which is why the mods have to ban the users.

Captcha stops some of the bots, but obviously not all of them. The guy who actually runs the SoH site stays on top of this, and if he finds a better captcha he will put it in.

since you know about those things a short question
I notice quite often "users" being online with the little word (bots) behind their names. And those bots pretty often seem to be the same, what about that?

Search engines register as 'bot' accounts. But they do so in a transparent way, where we are aware of them and can monitor them. Also, search engine bots never post. They are only responding to keyword searches.

ah ok thanks - so they are technically bots but since they do not spam but basically do their job by checking if a site is still available they are having on their list, that is ok. Understood :)

Still counting the " New Members" for the month but ...

I have been starting to take the count for " users on line " and just off the top of my head scene I have been recording the " new members " numbers that the average " Users on line " has gone up in the past year from the low teens to the upper 20's ...

So I suspect that there are a lot of " Look-ee loo voyeurs " out there that don't log on but once in a while ... and that's ok ... for I am one of those...

Stay encourage DEV's were still supporting you ...
