Spammers Inflating Our Numbers?

Postby Eric Weder » Thu Jul 29, 2010 11:40 pm

I see that we have 197 actual members listed, but the totals on the online summary say "We have 2863 registered users", and the member list shows about 58 pages, where in reality our 197 folks fit on four pages.

Is there a way to reset the numbers so that we aren't counting all the spambots?

It looks like a full-time job just monitoring the list to keep the spammers out. Shane probably spends more time on this than anybody realizes, I hope everybody appreciates the effort. I do!

I made a few more changes to help with this. A while back, I had modified the board to not list the spammers in the Memberlist. I have now also modified the board to not include them in the user count.
