The last time I saw it happen, the new threads were all named random characters like "agdgsh". Shortly after they changed to the Chinese or whatever characters and content. Did they make new threads or edit the existing ones? Maybe that's how they get around filters?

I've got a few add-ons that I'm looking at, but I can no longer rapidly deploy add-ons (they have to be piped through the server management team) so it won't be happening immediately.

In these unprecedented times, I propose that you have the forum ping you with every new post, and you will manually accept each and every one, 24/7.
i am sure this solution is acceptable to you. :close:
