Forums clean from spam! Finally.

emunewz internals Forums clean from spam! Finally.
After years of frustration we finally found an efficient way to remove all those nasty posts about watching online movies and sh%$@.

Every new user now will have to get an approved first post in order to be able to post freely in our forums. This is done by the moderators/developers/admins of our forum and it seems to work well Smile

I'd like to thank every one of them for looking into all those approve requests!

Also there is a small issue with our build downloads. Turns out that many other sites use our hosted files and link to them externally. On top of that they have ads on those links. This sucks and we will find a way to remove that functionality for them without going back to those evil file hosting services. Meanwhile please stay away from them and always post a comment on those sites that we do have them here, ad free.

RE: Forums clean from spam! Finally.
if those ads are pages like adfly and such, you can add htaccess or php redirections on the build server. make the server redirect anyone following from an adfly-like page back to google or other page, deny them the download if they used one of those pages.

or hell, disable direct links from outside of and related pages completely, sending people who try back to google.
