None of the mods disabled the anti-spam filter, the damn thing wasn’t renewed which is why it was disabled.

I think you're confusing the Invision spam service (which is hardly effective) with the CleanTalk (https://cleantalk.org/) plugin. Only the latter has proven a solid defense against the spambots.

Based on my knowledge of the event, I'm a bit confused about it being said that someone with admin privileges disabled the anti-spam measures.

From what I understood, the mods were incapable of turning it back on, so it would stand to reason they wouldn't have been able to turn it off in the first place.

An argument could be made that it could be turned back on with the acp, and the mods simply chose to let it remain off, but... That doesn't really line up with how the team has operated.

I'm not trying to call YCMaker a liar, I'm just trying to get clarification on this specific event, because I don't have a full understanding of what happened.


EDIT: just saw last few posts. Now I'm wondering when said plugin was turned off

Should have used CleanTalk, since it would solve the problem of your dirty mouth. Smh, allowing curse words on this site and even utilizing them. Maybe it is best that you are going to be demoted by YCMaker.

Wish we could have a link to NCM at the top, but I get that YCMaker owns this site and to advertise a competing site with this site doesn't make sense. I don't begrudge his choice.

 

For everyone who is a part of the longstanding community though, I suggest moving to NCM where most people have already moved and the active members who care about the community itself are in full control. Plus a lot of the new features of NCM are really nice like being able to pin comments. (Though YCMaker did say he's looking into updating this site) I really don't know what kind of important threads you can't just copy and paste to the new forum.

 

If new members come here and fill this place up once more, good for them and good for YCMaker on his new revenue stream.

 

However, for everyone who is here for the current community, I think it's time to head to NCM.

Why, he already gave Tormey and flame the same privs he had. If they have PHP access it's basically putting them in the same spot they'd be owning NCM

Neither of them have any idea what you're talking about btw

Why can't they tell me about this themselves? Like what is with this game of telephone. You did this, this morning too. 


They should both have access to the entire ACP, which likely includes SQL tables (to download) and the PHP files (needed to fix cardmaker images) because YCMaker gave them the admin groups. Think falling Pizza.

You call it a game of telephone but where did your information that they have this come from? Did YCMaker tell you but not them? Kind of weird for him not to tell someone they're giving them extra power.

Flame merely mentioned his confusion in the mod discord about you saying this so I figured I'd let you know since, if YCMaker told you he did that, he's either lying or for some reason didn't inform them (at least Flame) of this

It says that their member group was changed to Administrator.

Not sure when Flame mentioned that to you. But they had their groups changed by the bigman. And the last person to be put in that group, Falling Pizza, was able to access PHP files. I haven't had coms with YCMaker today.

In either case, someone should embed Yamachu's cardmaker

I did not expect to be part of that banner. heh.
Has my participation in the discussion been big enough to warrant that? I aren't exactly staff of either side and am still checking activity on both ends, a little bit inspired by watching Nyx stay active at both forums' misc section without involving himself in all this xD


I guess I am in a position where I can just wait to see if something happens. 
Winter's words gave me the impression that maybe YCMaker had talked with Tormented and Flame Dragon today and done something, despite the earlier status implying staff would get replaced ASAP when the forum gets updated.
Then with Cow's words here, IDK. So YCMaker was just lurking and reading all afternoon after all and nobody really knows what and when stuff's gonna happen?

 

Since I lost track of things I'll go into standby.

Black Widow fought on the wrong side during that movie, and pretty much switched sides after


I'm hopeful this goes somewhere good. I just don't think starting from scratch is worth it. Esp if Tormy and Flame get full Admin privs

Winter, Flame and Torm ALWAYS had Admin as their secondary groups.

Hmm, striker mentioned that they had the admin tag added to them. So it was all just cosmetic?

I see what Winter is talking about. I now have "Administrators" listed in my profile and I'm pretty sure that was not there before. My confusion stems from the fact that YCMaker never communicated with me that this was happening.

I and one other person in this thread suggested he trust a reputable face on the Forum with the Administrator tag, its not an awful idea. 

 

The real question is, is that change superficial, or do you and Torm have access to the full ACP and potentially the off site backend.

 

Torm thinks the issue with SQL tables might be just that we're on an old version and it's glitchy, but idk. I made my assumption that you had full ACP based on the fact that the last non YCMaker person to get the Red name was Falling Pizza, and he did have full ACP. Might have been a rash assumption, and certain people have already given me the shit I somewhat deserve for it
