Scheduled Downtime for maintenance - July 24, 2019 - 9am CST

Mon Jul 22, 2019 11:50 am

Hi Everyone,

First of all, huge thank you to our moderators who work tirelessly to keep the forum clean from spam and orderly - and specifically, LeftieBiker, Randy, EVDriver who have been deleting spam daily!

In order to help them out, to better block spam attacks, and to increase security, we will be upgrading the forum software and database on July 24th from 9 am to 12pm

While this should only take 15-30 minutes, we've blocked off a 3 hour window to deal with any difficulties we may encounter.

Rest assured, we are taking full backups before we run the upgrade to ensure that the data will remain unharmed and we can continue on as the largest Nissan LEAF website in the world!*

If you have any questions, reply below.

Thanks,
Mike

* I just made that up, but it might be true - we have been online since 2009 - 10 years next month!!!

It is testimony to the excellent job done by moderators that I haven’t seen a whole lot of spam. Thank you to these folks for spending the time to make the experience better for all of us. Anything that can be done to lessen their load, I’m all for it.

It's still only as good as the stopforumspam.org database is - and that poster, ip, and email were all not found in the stopforumspam database.

If it's a human poster with a clean email, they'll still be able to spam, yes. Any ideas on how to prevent that, I'm all ears!

Search doesn't seem to be working for me since the update.

I'm looking for troubleshooting advice because the USB port in my 2018 stopped functioning; however, nothing comes up.

If I search for a common word like "leaf" or "voltage," only results from today come up.

Ask prospective members to tell, in at least 10 words, why they want to join. Then have a Mod approve those who do so. It will eliminate the spammers who create gibberish user names and who don't want to spend more than 1 minute here spamming, which is most of them.

Also, ban Pakistan IPs. I have yet to see a legitimate member from Pakistan. I see numerous spammers every night from there.

We just got a spammer who appeared to be posting from Clifton, NJ. So maybe there will be fewer from other continents, at least...
