    It is reopened now. Purposely baiting people to get a reaction is pretty much asking for personal abuse, so maybe posters should be cautious of that too.

      Literally everything that is written in that thread can be seen as baiting someone. All the comments calling JLO a thief, all the comments calling Mariah a dusty diva( not made by me ) According to the official rules stanning is also not allowed and there is a lot of blatant stanning in that thread also. One of the main premises of UK mix is that is is not a stan site and conflicting opinions are allowed. If that has changed the rules need to be updated. With all due respect there are only certain people who resort to personal attacks. In the Celine thread people have been sharing their opinions of her album, both positive and negative and it has never gone to personal attack territory. I dont agree that personal abuse is ever acceptable, just because you dislike someone.

        • Is anyone having issues tonight with dead pages? (e.g. after waiting for a page to load, a white screen appears with just the vBulletin logo).

          Someone else has raised it and just wondered whether it had affected any other users?

            Thanks for this reaction. Still, some people love baiting and have no intention to change their style.

            • Is there a way to do some botcheck before registering? I mean it is past the point of cute how these bots spam this forum on a daily basis.

                We already have an enhanced captcha registration and the requirement to select an Avatar before posting anything - but they've managed to figure out how to get round this.

                Over the next few days, I'll be modifying the usergroup settings we have so that any poster with less than 10 posts cannot open a new topic but I suspect they'll soon learn to spam existing topics before long.

                        I swear I must have deleted at least 200 threads from that sub-forum today, they're going wild.

                          Thanks for pointing it out. Can you use the Report function as well? It helps as it gives all mods a notification which may lead to addressing it quicker.

                            • it says I have 128 notifications (unread private messages), but all of them are already from years ago. Really don't want to "read" them all again or delete them, is it a bug? It's like this for weeks already!

                                All existing messages (including deletions) have become active after the site update and re-launch.
                                This affected each and every user and it is not a bug. Just have all old messages marked "read" and it will reset the counter.

                                  And they're becoming good at this as they have Mariah or Madonna avatars

                                      We are discussing how best to make this work for all posters based on the feedback we had, in the meantime be patient.

                                            Please only report spam that is posted in running topics, and/or new threads that are not recognizable as such at first glance.
                                            The Asian spammers that use Chinese Korean, Russian, etc. characters are easy to spot and are dealt with as fast as possible.

                                            • Would it be worth giving a few members who always report the spam, the power to delete the spam threads?

                                                Site failed to load again yesterday - though only for about 6 minutes at around 6PM.
