I have some time off this Friday, so I plan to work on the forum. I will be changing the way user deletion works.
It's no surprise we've had to delete a lot of spam accounts in the past few years, and the original deletion feature implemented for spammers of this type creates a new thread for each user in the moderator's lounge.
Well, that's turned out to be WAY too many threads, overloading that sub-forum, and also just filling my own (and Kyle's) thread creation list with mostly useless garbage.
I often use my own thread creation list to find old thread's I've made, and these new threads are making that obnoxious. I'm sure @Kyle isn't happy about it either.

So, I'll be making one giant thread for these to be posted to. I will also do the work to clean up the existing threads, and move the posts to this one-giant-thread-to-rule-them-all.

I know this isn't a cool update for anyone but myself and maybe Kyle, but it is happening.

Update (Version 1.5.4)

I've updated the spam-bot obliteration feature to post staff notifications all in one giant master thread instead of having a new thread per event.
This involved a minor code change, but a large, complicated database transition to move all of the posts to the one main thread, update that thread's metadata, and then delete the now-empty threads.

This is really nice, since now the staff notifications section is cleaner for us, and our own thread lists aren't just filled with these foolish notification threads.

It was getting overwhelming at the gross amount of bots that register and post on here. Happy to see if cleaned up better.

Update (Version 1.5.5)

A tiny update for staff controls this morning. I realized spam users who are deleted don't yet have their private messages deleted. So I have updated the tool to do that, and updated the information the tool gives us staff members when a spam user is deleted.

As for future updates, they will still be coming, but still slowly as usual. Our new daughter is 7 months old and still not sleeping more than 1-2 hours at a time through the night, and is sick often. I've been sick for 7 weeks now. My wife is sick. I have emergency project on top of emergency project to finish with the home and cars. Everything is shitsville right now.

Update (not code related)

For some fucked up reason Trend Micro had the HTTPS version of this site marked as "Dangerous" and a "Scam" which must have come some 4 years ago when Google started marking the site as malicious and they just took Google's word for it? That is some fuck old-ass data they were running on. Hilariously enough, the non-SSL version of the site was marked "Safe".

This was preventing some people who use the Trend Micro anti-malware client and browser plugin from visiting the site.
Why anyone uses that kind of software is beyond me...

So I told Trend Micro to re-check the site and they are now marking it as "Safe" and in good standing.

Here's the URL I used to check our site and get them to figure their own shit out: Trend Micro Site Safety Center
