Moblog is about sharing, communicating, playing with new gadgets, and above all having fun!
We love this site so much, we decided to give up some time everyday to help manage it.

Welcome to moblog news. Your community-powered site support hub.

We are going to use this blog to publish all appointments, decisions and policy changes made between the moderation and site admin teams behind the scenes.

Dear mobloggers,

We seem to be under a weird yet sustained attack at the moment from spambots adding random inappropriate comments to posts all over the site. We are doing our best to remove them as they come up but it would really help if you could adjust your privacy settings so that only registered users can comment on your blogs. This will help keep your lovely blogs nice and spam-free until we can find a better way to fight back.

To change your settings, go to "Profile" > "Privacy" > "Who can comment on my blog" switch to "registered users only".

I did it just ahead of this item yesterday when it got silly. Bloody nuisance though : (

I only changed my settings last night too. I'd much rather keep them open if possible but hopefully this will calm down soon.

That being said, and I don't want to speak to soon, it's almost eerily normal on the front page this morning. Maybe spambots rest on a Sunday :)

I don't like it either - but if it works it's worth it :)

I hope we can open things up again soon too. Though when you change your settings back, it might be an idea to keep a closer eye on things to begin with to see if the problem comes back.

Twiglet - the server died - but after much work by Mat, it eventually ressurected :)

Work on new server still progressing...
