Every time I come to this site I have an urge to by a pair of Nike Trainers.

I just deleted nearly 2000 threads from the Introduce Yourself and Film forums. It's completely out of hand.

Once the spam bots get in, it's really hard to get rid of them. You should delete all the spam users, block their IP's and if they're using any blockable e-mail-domains, block them as well.

But the best way would be to update the message board and install new anti-spam -registration measures. Like I said, this version of the message board is years old and this will only get worse. It's also possible that someone will hack the site, since old versions usually have many security holes as well.

It's now infiltrated every forum except fun and games, with the same content. Something needs to be done.

I agree, it's out of control, we can only do so much before they hit us again. Peter's not responding to our emails about it.

We're doing as we can when we see them. I'm literally on and off the forum all day while I'm at work and moving hundreds of threads.

Sadly at the moment you'll just have to bare with us while we manually move and delete the spam.

Something that could be done would be to move Jovitalk altogther and start up a new re-vamped website. This Peter dude clearly doesn't give a monkeys anyway, and the amount of spam is ruining it. Someone should create a new sparkly re-vamped Jovitalk site and move everyone over there.

You'd need all the old conversations and stuff and Peter won't let others have them. He wants money for it and a lot of it. This has been discussed over and over many times.

Starting a message board is easy, and it's not even that expensive. But getting people to come there or even switch over from a previous board is hard. And especially a board like this where there are tons of stuff in the archives, so to speak.

It would only take some hours to put up a new board or a copy of this one if we had the files and database dumps. But it's not going to happen. More likely scenario is that Peter will pull the plug on this altogether.
