I did it, buttmunch.

The problem is that the Kinja link breaks everything below it, so you can't view the edit button for the post...

This was the procedure:
1. Clicked the upper right # link to view borken post by itself
2. Found a different post that I could edit and then copied the link from the button
3. Returned to tab with borken post and copy-pasta'd the edit link, but replaced the post ID (the "p=1317495" portion) with the borken post's ID
4. Deleted like 10 pages worth of Kinja hyperlink vomit

You need to follow the link to the edit post page from being on the page for that post. It's not enough to change the post ID in the edit page and reload, you have to go from the post's page to the corresponding edit page, otherwise it doesn't work.

And that's how to fix a borken Kinja link post.

Wow, this thread is 131 days old. Time sure flies as you get older.

Anyway, what's the verdict? Has it been better/worse/same since we changed things up?

We've had some temporarily interesting people and or bots. Definitely worth the effort as long as I don't have to it.

I'm going with better, of course I'm not the one dealing with it all. Sure it's mostly bots looking to purchase a pet vacuum but the goals were reached, real humans can indeed sign up, while the forum hasn't been destroyed or made unreadable by spam bots.

I tried being interesting, but it was only temporary, and I promise to never be a bot.

I felt your pain, vm, of having to deal with all those bizarre usernames and email addresses ... until I automated my way out of it. Now, effort? Hardly.

We've had a few fairly pathetic spammers. And a couple of regular people who posted a bit and then seem to have got bored or be frightened off - like Gizmoduck. But have we had any new members stick around, compared to the old days of manic [thanks]ing?

LarsMac - you joined way before this new united regime - did it have anything to do with your decloaking, I mean delurking?

And that's a good thing right? Since it's you I thought I should check.

I just enabled CloudFlare on our domain which has the potential of speeding up access for everyone. Let's see if it works as advertised!

Weren't there any options for just speeding up access for a privileged few?

What this means is that I wrote a script that (securely logging in of course) grabs the email addresses from the user moderation queue and checks them against stopforumspam.com ... and shows me a list of the ones that might not be spammers ... if any.

Almost effortless! :cheer:

What this means is that it broaked. Now I get some shit like
<span class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="69070c1f00070f062900471c08">[email*protected]</span>
which presumably is de-obfuscated by some nasty javascript to prevent email address harvesting, and those cf_email bits suggest who. :sadcheer:

:detect:

I was going to ask vm if that feature could be turned off, but wait ... somebody must have dealt with this problem before ... bingo! All is now well again. :cheer:

Another thing. Since this change, all the IP addresses my script politely asks stopforumspam to check return as OK, which wasn't the case before.

And it turns out this is a known thing - they are cloudflare proxy server addresses - and there's a simple solution. Via this Stop Forum Spam post, this: Using Cloudflare with vBulletin forums Cloudflare Support, and specifically this: How do I restore original visitor IP with a LiteSpeed server? Cloudflare Support ...

Quote:
Go to your LiteSpeed Web Admin Console,
Enable the option Use Client IP in Header in Configuration.

Once enabled, your access logs will now show the correct IP addresses, and even PHP's ... variable will contain the client real IP address, instead of a Cloudflare IP address, which in itself will resolve most problems you could hit when enabling Cloudflare on PHP-enabled web sites (like WordPress or vBulletin installs).
vm, is this something we, I mean you, could do?

They told me to go fuck myself so ... should I just disable Cloudflare? Has anyone noticed any significant performance improvement?

If anyone's seen even a small improvement, I'd say keep it. This IP address issue only affects those admins extreme moderators who check stopforumspam, which is probably only me my script, and the email addresses are still available for checking.
