Interactive Spam

Want to talk about the site itself -- problems, technical issues, ideas, etc.? Here's the place to do it!

I hope to get some sort of account system up and running over the long weekend. I'll probably also set up a git repo if anyone ones to help or add more code to it.

Part of the reason it always asked for e-mail was because I had plans for accounts before, and using the e-mail would allow you to reclaim your old posts. It will also prevent them for using your name Kappa (and it sucks that they are doing that). I could disable updating until the accounts are online, but if it takes longer then I hope it could be just as annoying. I'll leave that as your call if you guys want me to do that as a stop gap.

I am not opposed to it being temporary disabled, my biggest concern when things are being changed around that none of the non spam stories and posts are lost.

I love posting on the interactive site, but I think I'm going to take a break for a while until the spammers are handled. Kappa and I put in way too much time for our stories to be messed with by trolls. Hopefully they'll get tired of it when no one is egging them on with actual stories.

Well, i have taken the first steps to start blocking people. For now you won't notice it (unless I screwed up more then usual) and I'll be able to start blocking new spam posts. It won't happen right away but it's a stop in the right direction.

An update on how the changes to the story site are going (keep in mind nothing is live yet, but I wanted to give you an update). I've got basic accounts up and running, creating an account, logging in and out, and about half way done with password resets. Once I get the account activation all working I'll be able to apply some permission to control who can do what.

Once I have all that done, I'll be able to push up the changes.

After that I'll add a user control panel system so you can edit stuff, and maybe some other information. I'll also add the ability to take ownership of preexisting pages using the e-mail address you used to create them. Which will allow for editing in the future. Yay!

I also put the code up on a git hub repo if you want to see it. I would be happy to add some contributes once things are up and running so we can keep improving it.

Thanks everyone for your patience while I get all of this done.

Accounts have been added, and we managed to keep everything on the site. That should prevent any new spam (and allow us to ban anyone who tries) then we can work on cleaning up the mess. I took care of some of the worst of it.

Thanks for bringing it to me attention. Should be dealt with now.
