  • Removing last post name of Banned user

    Hello,

    I had a porno spammer today who posted on 66 individual threads.
    I banned and removed him but his user name remains as the person who hade the last post on each thread

    How can I get his persons name removed and the thread displaying the last legitimate poster.

    Thankyou

    Was his name by any chance 'georgesltd56'?

    Cos I've just had exactly the same problem on my forum (VFXTalk.com) - our two posts are asking for the solution to exactly the same problem, too... I've deleted my post, as there's no point for two asking the same thing...


    Edit: Just had a look at your forum, and it is... Would there be a problem with posting this guy's IP address on here so that other forums can ban him before he gets to them (I'm assuming it's some kind of bot...)

        Hello Hugh,

        Yes it is

        I did a whois search on 20incock.com and called them in California.
        They terminated the account 593465 immediately

        I have also emailed [email protected] who apparently control the email programme at GameBox.

            *bump*

            Anyone have a solution?

            Not only is the last post name a problem, but it screwed up the "real" chronological order of the threads.

              Updating your forum and thread counters should fix this.

                Thanks!

                I wish you replied a bit earlier tho - being a newbie, me and some members just mass-replied to the spammers posts, getting his name off the boards.

                *sigh* a forum update would have saved a lot of hassle and been much cleaner - I will remember this for future reference.
