  • Deterioration of our website

    What is with all the crap on this site now? It used to be specific for us true custom car buffs, now it is full of junk put in by stupidest. Steve

    It’s a shame.
    I think the owners have little interest in it now.

      The spam filters probably require updating, or the site protocols are out of date. The kit car industry is being destroyed by the supercar manufacturers going after replica companies, unfortunately there's loads of reasons this site isn't what it used to be :-(

          I have made this comment on many different threads, without any replies. I have asked WHO IS THE ADMIN TO THIS SITE???? I get no answer, ever, ever, ever. What we do get on here is many options to cheat on your homework. That is what this site has become, needs to be renamed to MAD SPAM HOMEWORK ADVERTISERS. Or something....

            All;

            I have reached out to the owner of the site to see if we can get access into the admin side of things to help manage the site. The owner was a young fellow in university in Toronto when he started this site so many years ago but he has moved into full life and family so doesn't get to the site as much as he used to.

            Chimera, let me see of we can get access into the back end of this site first before we move off to a new one. Moving the history over would be brutal.....

            Cheers
            Don

              The forums software is a 2020 version so it must be existing spam accounts that havent been banned or the new member signup is too easy/has fault.

                Yes I think so. The signup and posting needs to be updated to make it dirt bag proof....

                  I apologize - I will try and install new spam filters, the issue is the spammers are getting much more resourceful and as mentioned this forum software is dated so doesn't have the newest spam blocking tools

                    Maybe you should just MONITOR THE SITE! These a######s post repeatedly and NOTHING IS DONE ABOUT IT. You must toss them off immediately & DELETE the crap or you will lose all your legitimate members (if, in fact, any are still left). It is NOT about software. It is about paying attention.

                      The issue is new members need to be approved and not blindly allowed access and spamming members need to be removed. Period. This was a great site. Now I hardly visit because of the spammers.

                        All;

                        I have been contact with the site owner and he has agreed to allow a couple of us to take on moderation duties as he just doesn't have time any more. He also went in this weekend to get new anti-spam modules installed as this has become more of an issue. Let's check on how this is going and if you see any updates needed, don't hesitate to reach out to me.

                        Thanks
                        Don

                            I have gone in and deleted a couple dozen already and carrying on working through the dirt bags. I have also asked if we can get approvals on new users so we can slow the automated bots creating new IDs to spam. More to come.
