Re: My board is being trashed!!!
Are these people you have approved for membership?

Just ban them and then clean up. There is an option to delete all of a member's posts. Do that before banning them.

No Cat I don't have member screening on, they just showed up, Admin. was just on the board, I'll see what they say first before I wipe anything out. THANKS!

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
I've locked down all the usernames involved in this and have put the board into MBA mode - I suggest you keep it that way for a while at least, until this settles down.

I've also banned those usernames by email, so that they can't register new names and come back later, using those addresses at least.

You can see which are the names I've locked down (they all have an email ban), so you can delete their posts quickly, if they've made replies to existing threads. It won't however delete any posts which started threads, so you'll have to do those separately. :smile:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!

Thankyou BbAdminMod, for all that you've done and for getting there so quickly. Yes, I'll leave it in MBA, how long would you suggest? I'm pretty upset right now, but I think I understand from what Cat said how to delete the posts etc.

Again, THANKS :smile:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
I'm sorry you had such a nasty thing happen to your board - I can't imagine what possesses people to do stuff like this.

I'd leave it in MBA until Monday I think and when you take it off, just be sure to keep a close eye on it, in case these jerks come back. Hopefully with the email bans, that will not be too easy. :smile:

Ah, you must have gotten there first. By the time that I got there, it was already in MBA mode, hence my comments. :wink:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
PM the information to me at BbAdmin and also to BbAdminMod and we will look into doing something about this for you. This was outrageous and at least you got on in time to notify us so we could act and help stop that.

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
Dmonkey,
Would it be a breach of manners to ask what happened? I am a little lost, but if it's none of my buisness, just tell me. I am just curious so I can watch out for it. It looks from the thread like it's pretty serious though...

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
A malicious group from another network came over to DMonkey's board intent on causing trouble...Unlike that other network, old threads cannot be pushed off the forums & lost. Sad howw some people have too much time on their hands & no respect for anyone else around them on the net. :ohwell:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
Hi BbAdmin! :smile: I just have a question, now that this group have been email banned etc. can I delete them as members, so they don't show on my members list or would that interfere with the email bans??

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
You can delete them without any trouble DMonkey. :smile: It's only if you delete a banned member you might change your mind about later that it becomes difficult. :wink:

Oh, Thank you very much BbAdmin! :smile:

No, I don't think I'll be changing my mind! lol :wink: Thanks for explaining that, now I can put my member stuff back on view! :smile: :smile:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
You know you can also take advantage of the posting restriction (for who can view threads in this forum specifically) 'Members of the board, Mods, & Admins' in any of your individual forums where you want to have them open to your members, but make them unviewable by 'guests & non-members'. Let us know if you need anything else DMonkey. :smile:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
Hi BbAdmin :smile:

I just finished doing that, you must be a mind reader, either that or I'm reading your mind :wink: :smile:

THANKS again, for all your help, I think I'm okay now, I'll just leave it on MBA awhile longer, as suggested.

When I take it off MBA I won't have guest viewing, just users of the system, cause I would like that people be able to view the board to see what we're about before they join, I think that's a good idea :smile:

Re: My board is being trashed!!!
Glad to hear that you've already plotted out the next steps for your community DMonkey. :biggrin: I agree that it is nice to be able to allow registered members the chance to check the board out before posting. :smile: And by not allowing guest viewing you won't have the traffic of google bots indexing threads. :wink:
