the smell - Postby RodNeySaLaMi » 29 Jun 2020, 20:35


I think we need to get rid of the spambots to get rid of the odor. I reccommend making any user with <10 posts unable to submit if their post contains a link. Any new user who is real can easily get 10 posts or just have the admin give them 10 posts or create a joinable group a bot wouldnt figure out how to join.

Also the smell might be coming from Chees. Ban him just to be sure.

Nobody had renderers that could go to 100 fps back then it was a big deal to get 60 in 2002. So I think newer players just take high fps from other games for granted, but DX doesn't have a ways to properly compensate clientside vs serverside framerates and speed.

A quick search found me no such plugins for phpbb. That would require making a modification in the code of the forums, specifically the posting part.

I think the questions about Deus Ex that are asked on registration are probably skipped by spambots, a proper CAPTCHA/google's recaptcha would be the solution for that.

The solution I proposed was already done on DX Alpha to great success. I believe those are phpbb boards too.

That's actually a great idea!
I've modified the forum code accordingly to avoid users posting links if they have too few posts yet.

Let's see if that works. :matrix:
