Re: Big water leak...a complete freaking mystery!

Don't you have maids' quarters behind your garage? If they are plumbed is the water running there and being disbursed? Yes, this is where my last leak was. I also figured that this might be the issue again when I remembered that there is a sewer line right beside the water line. It's possible that ...

Big water leak...a complete freaking mystery!

I got my water bill this month and saw that it was triple what it usually is. Went and looked at the meter and saw that it was spinning and calculated that I had a leak of about 850 gallons per day. Apparently, this has been leaking for a while. I looked all over the yard where I know I have water p...

Re: wavy glass intro...

Yeah, I don't think that promoting an alternative site is a good idea.
Not saying that people can't go where they want, but this is a pretty good community and it's probably against the rules.

Re: Ugh. I'm getting so tired of spammers.

I have no idea who owns the site, and have had NO contact from them since the Great Spamination of 2012.
If you hear back from them, ask them to come to the boards and see what happened for themselves and to contact me too.
Thanks.

Re: I HAVE COMPLETLY LOCKED THE BOARDS DOWN

I locked down the boards, but that can't last forever if we want new users. I noticed the Delete Messages option, but that one guy had almost 3000 posts, and it didn't completely work. The post titles were still there, but the messages were gone at least. I still haven't heard from the site owners.....

Re: Potential way to stop spammers?

I already have Captcha set up when users sign up, and they have to confirm registration through email.

As for moderating a new users first posts, I really don't have the time to do it.

I HAVE COMPLETLY LOCKED THE BOARDS DOWN

BECAUSE OF THE "GREAT SPAM FEAST", I HAD TO LOCK THE BOARDS DOWN FROM LETTING ANY NEW USER COME IN. I'LL KEEP IT THIS WAY FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS, OR UNTIL THE SITE OWNERS COME IN AND FIX UP ALL THIS CRAP. PLEASE GO VISIT THREADS THAT YOU LIKE AND GIVE THEM A BUMP. THIS WILL AT LEAST PUSH THE SPAM OFF...

Re: Potential way to stop spammers?

Moderator, with all due respect ... it may be time to call in a professional
I agree, but I have no way to contact the site owners about any of this.
They are very hands off.
BTW, I just do the mod thing cause no one else would stand up to help.
