Firstly, I wish to apologize for the spam that has occurred on here over the past couple months.

Secondly, if you received a personal message from someone (I'll list known usernames below) telling you about viruses, please disregard the message. This is NOT something from Zebra Huddle. Also DO NOT click on any of the links in these messages, unless you want a virus on your computer.

The users who have been reported as having sent these messages are as follows:


Thank you to those of you who reported these messages to me.

I had been hoping that these were isolated instances, when there was only one user reported.
Unfortunately, it's not.

I've taken a few measures to help prevent these things from happening. I'm sorry to say that when you add security measures, it normally means a bit of inconvenience. I hope that the choices I've made are not overly inconvenient.

Here are the security measures I've added:
  • Users can not send private messages until they have posted 10 times. That number is arbitrary and could likely be lowered without consequence.
  • When registering, users will have to answer a question to prove they aren't a bot.
  • Other sneaky changes that are more "security through obscurity" that will prevent bots from quickly registering because they know the forum software.

I hope that these things combined greatly reduce the chance of any spammers making it in. Realistically, we can't prevent all spammers. I just want to strike a balance between security and convenience.
Your friendly Zebra Huddle admin.
