Hey everyone, WiNGSPAN here with a short announcement.
It has come to my attention that the forum software has, over the course of some months, led to the creation of a few spam user accounts. And by a few, I mean thirty thousand.
While this doesn’t directly impact the site content in any way, there are apparently a large number of requests that may be impacting performance. There’s also the long-term threat of a security vulnerability or massive intrusion that could lead to bad things happening.
What does this mean for you?
I will be temporarily suspending user account creation and the T3 forum. If someone doesn’t already have an account on T3, he/she will not be able to create one at this time.
I’ll also be tackling the relatively slow process of deleting all the spam accounts. If you’re a bot, that’s bad news for you. If you’re a real human, you’ll probably be fine. But since the fake accounts outnumber the real ones by a large margin, there’s definitely the chance that real user accounts could be wiped in this procedure. If this happens to you, please notify me via our contact form or with a comment on this post.
Sorry for the inconvenience… I hope you can recover from this devastating loss. If not, go play a videogame or something. I hear they’re rather entertaining.
