Hello snakeair does this happen often? When ppn pay me today i am buying vbulletin, I am getting the publishing suite, I was planning on making user profile pages none public or removing the url field completely, Do you think this will help get less attacks? I also want the captcha before every thread started for new users, the captcha will then be disabled when the user builds up some trust, I want no links allowed before 25 good posts.
The forum i am making is nothing to do with webmasters, Its a celeb gossip forum, I know there are lots of these already, but its a long term project i expect it to take lots of years before i have a good community i just do not want anyone spamming me or just coming for a backlink and nothing else, Do you think the captcha will help? Or can xrumor get past this?
I was also advised to remove the powered by vbulletin at the footer, and make my forum nofollow is this possible?
I never known this was your forum but I have some questions if you can answer them for me this would be great
My first one, Let say someone does do an attack on me how easy it is to remove all these bad profiles? Is there an option for deleting inactive profiles, threads?
Are there any hidden fees when you buy vbulletin? So when I buy the publishing suite today will I need to buy anything else such as required add-ons?
I installed phbbb but it just looks horrible and the urls are not search engine friendly, To get urls like yours is this another add-on?
Also these little green points ďiconsĒ is this standard or is another addon?
Also my other sites are hosted with godaddy shared hosting, I was told godaddy was not that good when it comes to vbullitn is this true?
Do you think I would need a dedicated server to run vbullitin to start with? Or would a shared server for starters be ok?
