Forum rules
While the rules in this forum are more relaxed than in other parts of the Expat site, there are still a few things we’d like you to remember: No name calling, no insults – be civil to each other!

weird posts

Postby caliguy » Fri Aug 28, 2015 11:08 am

i haven't been able to log in the past day or so due probably the reconfiguration of the website. until today, i noticed a lot of strange posts, and i clicked a link and took me to a porn site! where the hell did all these new user's come from. some posts/user's need to be deleted :D


every place has it's own spirit. you just need to tune into it.

It seems like this new forum software is attracting spammers somehow...

Yeah.. sorry about that. The Webmaster had left out the Captcha code requirment. It´s incredible the amount of automized spam out there just looking for this kind of breach. Wow.

Anyway.. please be patient and give us a couple days to make all the tweaks. Overall, the forum will end up being a more user friendly experience, and above all, responsive, so it will size to your tablets and telephones.

All the best,
Alan

Okay.. done, and I think I was able to delete the wave of spammy posts. Please let me know if you find others, and I´d be happy to receive comments or suggestions on the updated site. Shoot me a PM.
