A 4th way : give me mod status so I can use my broom as Niki expressed it ?

You shouldn't just delete the topics, but also block those "guys". Or maybe leave them- this way the forum looks quite alive ; )
(Niki)
She was right - twice.

BTW where is Guntram ? And Esther ?
Guntram in Russia and Esther in Holland ?

I read somewhere, that adding a so called security question to the login process, might also help. I'm not really sure though.

1. To do this, the engine blew CAPTCHA protection code charge USD $7.99

http://www.minibb.com/captcha.html

2. Engine version 1.7 of this forum. In order that would put the additions need version 3.0.1.

3. In order that would put the version 3.0.1 to convert the database offline for this version ... the author is a very time-consuming work ...

Talked with the alleged administrators.

Very good! Thanks!

He is voiced two options for getting it all correct ... (Cora knows about them)

I don't know what is best to do. I just think that the problem with the spams need to be solved asap. What would you recommend? Can you please advise our admin?

1. This forum is portable to address (for example) http://forumold.ruslana.ua and close it. Thus we get a saved an archive with a great history forum.

2. On the address (for example) http://forum.ruslana.ua create a welcome page with reference to the old and the new forum

3. On the address (for example) http://phorum.ruslana.ua create a forum on a new engine and an advanced security system.

p.s. An example of how this can be

I would also ... but I have a board administrator and no unnecessary $ 8
No, the time and desire to convert the forum database into version required for plug-in installation. Why? Because attendance of a forum is poor ... "mountain gives birth to a mouse"

P.S. And the beacause this preference? For whom is this preference?

I fear that the attendance will be even poorer than it is now.

no unnecessary $ 8

Would this amount be charged once to use captcha protection? I would be very happy to pay this amount if it solves the problem.

I think that one of the solutions would be to include the admin's approval for all the new signed users and delete the old users proved to be spams. Like this, these hackers won't be able to post their spam on the forum. There are many websites on which the admin's approval is being needed after registering there.

Good idea. I will suggest the capchas and the admin's approval to our admin.

Indeed it seems, that CAPTCHA is best in this case.

I wouldn't miss them. This morning I deleted about 100 spams. I thought it would never end. I now again another 50 or so.

I wrote again to the admin. He knows about this problem since at least the beginning of the year and hasn't done anything so far.

This morning I deleted about 100 spams.

Wow! I'm deleting the 'spam replies'. I don't know why but I can't delete topics nor the first post in a topic.

Only moderators can delete topics and postings by other users respectively by spammers. I tried to delete spambots during the last two days, but now it's getting difficult as the connection is very slow, sometimes there isn't any at all.....I'm on holidays and got the feeling, that I'm in the middle of nowhere. Maybe there's even more civilization in the Ukrainian Carpathians than in this place here.

I'm also a moderator but something is not right here. I can delete posts but not topics.

I would gladly do something about it, but if Alex and I's suggestions concerning moving the forum to a better and more modern platform had been taken into account back in 2009, we wouldn't be having this problem now.
(I'll just leave this here)

Unfortunately, your offers concerning handling the current situation will have the effect comparable to that of washing the floors during a fire. A complex renewal of the platform is needed, and I am working on it.

At that time there were spams and no problems. There was absolutely no reason for a new forum.

A new platform for this forum or a new one?

I noticed as well, that the number of spams went down, something might have done by the admin....I'm not sure. It's not a long time ago, when I've deleted almost two pages of spams and it seemed, that it became more and more.
