Don't worry, I got a copy of most of it, plus the IP#'s and I'm sure BbBoy will track them down and fix them good and proper. Meanwhile, I suggest you put the board in maintenance mode to prevent anyone getting in again. :smile:

And of course, the forum can be restored, so no worries really - it's just a really unpleasant experience for you! And we WILL find the cuprit - have no worries on that score!

I'm checking your board log right now - what happened to the threads he posted? Or did he reply to other posts? If so, I need to know the thread ID's, if you can give them to me please. :smile:

sorry, I deleted the posts. He replied to posts and on the last one had so much text that it would lock up any browser.

I had to delete it. I hope he can be tracked, my browser was locking up and I could net get the IP address as he was doing it.

Meanwhile, I have made that board members only, no guests can post or reply.

Thanks folks, great response, took almost a minute for you guys to get there. :smile:

Approximately how long before you first posted about this, did this happen? If I can get an approximate time frame, I can pin the bugger down. :smile:

I also got an email from this idiot. I am going to forward it to Bb Admin. , if I can find the email addy. perhaps it will help. He claims to have an IP changer.

Yes, please forward the complete email (with headers) to
BbBoy direct.

Unbelieveable that he had the gall to email you as well! I doubt whether, with the info we have now, he will get away with this.

By the way, I banned his IP# at your board. I think he is probably talking hot air about the IP changer - let's hope so anyway. :smile:

Thanks, we got his info and are contacting his ISP shortly. :smile:

Are you needing a forum restored? You mentioned you deleted the posts, so is it ok now?

a great job is an understatment, there was a mod on my board within one minute of my posting the problem here. I doubt very much that there is any support anywhere on the net that is this good.

Thanks folks, wonderful support job.

You're very welcome, Jim - if there's a problem of this nature going down and there's anyone here at the time, we'll be on it asap. We can't promise complete 24/7 but it's as close as we can get, as three of us here are in completely different time zones - GMT, GMT-5 and GMT+13 (yes, GMT+13!). :smile:

Luckily, though the incident was very unpleasant, your board was never in any danger of being seriously compromised in any way. Our backup and restore facilities (should they be needed) are second to none and security is tight. In addition to that, admins have powerful extra features that they can implement, such as disallowing guest viewing or posting, right through to strict membership screening. And of course, the log, which enables every single action (even a simple view of your main page by a passer-by) to be detailed with IP# and exact time. It was the log that enabled us to track down the person who posted that highly offensive rubbish at your board last night. :smile:

Do board owners have access to this log also? I thought I saw a download for a log somewhere, but it may have been for the chat.

You bet you have access to it Jim. In the admin center-go over to the right and you'll see a Search Log Main events and Search Full Log. You click either of those and enter what you're searching for and POOF you've got a list of matches if there are any. It is case sensitive so Pamster and pamster will not get the same results. :wink:

Great, thanks, but just one more question. If the offender is not registered and does what he does as a guest, what do you search for? You are looking for his IP addy, so you don't have that to go by, no name, nothing. What does it mean to search by action? What do you put in that box?
