Does anyone really care anymore?

Postby borginator2 » Sun Oct 31, 2010 3:50 pm

Does anyone really care about Rubiks.com anymore?

Why do I ask this? Well, we had a brand new launch with a brand new site. And a new forum!

And who posts? Spammers.

Who cleans them up? No-one. There are no moderators. The admin still don't listen to what we have to say. They just seem to want the site to run down until it disappears.

Replacements? Well I can't name them, or can I? They are banned advertisers, blocked under the old rules. But this is a new forum, right? New rules...

The best sites to replace rubiks.com? Ones with active staff, who restrict membership to people who are not selling iPhones and Tramadol.

See what I mean. No new non-spam posts here since I made the last post.

This site is dead.

Hi "borginator2" - you are quite right the moderation and anti - spamming has not been great for a while. However we have a new website and a new team so we will try and make sure the forum becomes spam free and a place where real fans can enjoy talking to each-other. Hopefully all the recent spam should have been deleted. Please keep telling us if you find more WE DO CARE!!

I really hope so.

This site has been plagued by spam for many months now. There has been little or no action so far to sort it out. I really hoped the new site would change that. Please justify all that with some moderation...

We've now tried to remove all the recent spam and have banned all the recent users who were clearly there just to spam. We will endeavour to keep on top of it and make the forum what it should be - a place just for Rubik's fans and not a market for "muscle enhancement" or worse!! :D

That sounds good. A real step in the right direction. :D

You just need to bring back the old crowd and attract a new one now.

It is good to see some involvement from admin again. I wish you luck in getting the site to grow.

Many thanks. We hope it will once again become a place for Rubik's fans to meet and share without being put off by spam or silly comments

I'm thinking we need more restricted access - that is if the latest XXX rated spam is anything to go by.

Yes that was not horrible - I have obviously banned them and will implement restrictions if we get any more like that!!
