Temporary measures to prevent spam in place
Greetings,

Booru.org admin here.

Posting this as a quick PSA to the users of the board. As of this moment the board is on lockdown for a few days.

Anonymous users can not do anything other than rate images.

User registrations have been temporarily closed.

Buffscale's various attempts to obtain Admin privileges have been denied. His own booru has been abandoned by him with spam sitting on it since February. He has demonstrated an inability to admin anything, as such he will not be allowed to take over this booru.

The admin panel for the booru is as of this moment off limits to anyone but the previous owner and myself.

This "lockdown" will continue for a few days until I deem the board clean enough to reopen.

If you have any questions or concerns there are three avenues which you can use to contact me:

- Post in this forum thread.

- Send an email to staff@booru.org

- Join the Rule34.xxx discord server and message an admin there.

EDIT: This shows up as being posted by "illusioncards" because I'm using the booru master user to post it. The previous admin has not made any attempt to contact us so do not take this as the previous admin returning. They have not.

UPDATE: User registrations have been reopened today on 08-06-2018.

If you're referring to the /tesg/ boorus I ran back in 2012, we abandoned them because some guy kept spamming it with mass upload scripts, and it would take hours and hours to clean all that crap up.

We just went to another Booru instead because its far too easy for this booru system to be screwed with.

You guys seriously need a better system for removing spam, because right now theres like 32,000 (at least) comments to delete. Even if this place had an admin, that would be hours and hours of work, mainly because you guys sat around and did nothing when it was happening.

Best of luck, man. I sincerely hope you make this booru great again.

Hmm, looks like that Sindydoll bot is still going at it though :\

I think the Booru.org guys should just nuke everything and re-write all their code, manually deleting all that must have been torture

Will anonymous uploading eventually be restored? It's fairly evident that limiting uploads to registered users doesn't eliminate spam (which IMO should be dealt with either by IP bans or, as has been suggested, with a sort of captcha), and I personally liked uploading anonymously because I wanted to have each card evaluated by its own merits, which I'm pretty sure is the case for many other users as well.

It's a feature taken away for no reason, basically.

"Pats illusioncards on the back" nice job with the temporary band-aid.

gotta do something guys
i dont necessarily feel bad for anyone dumb enough to click "private sex site" links and get's bombed with malware... but its EVERY post. Perhaps a comment filter would help? Like charlbeef said, add a captcha to post a comment.

I'm pretty sure illusioncards abandoned the site again.

The only people that could add a captcha would be the actual booru.org staff....I'm still somewhat mystified as to why they haven't even picked a new moderator or admin already.

I also really wonder why the booru.org staff haven't implemented some sort of bot spam captcha already, its got to be HELL deleting 20,000+ posts (just for ONE of their top boorus!)

I'm still somewhat mystified as to why these supposed migrants keep coming to this oh so inferior booru and offering their "services" to end the spamming problem.

Did the rescue ship sink or is there something else they're not telling us, I wonder.

(Nevermind the fact that they're LITERALLY asking for $$$ on that other failure of a booru.

Like gee, I wonder who could benefit from the downfall of this place.)
