Countdown and deleting bots and spammer's posts
« on: October 18, 2018, 09:16:59 AM »
I thought a countdown timer till release would be great.
Much more important, I don't understand why the bots and spam/blocked comments never get deleted at all.
It's kinda garbage filling environment; not exactly inviting, imo.
Thanks for keeping it all running anyway.  :)

Hi there. Thanks for the suggestions.

I've thought about a countdown timer before but the problem being with timezones the actual hour it would show would be dependant on time zone set. And in the end, we all know the release date is now a week away so we probably don't need that constant reminder of how close it is getting.

The bot/spam accounts get banned and then the topics/posts removed. There may sometimes be a delay in removing them if there are a few whilst we process the bans etc. But rest assured we will delete the topics to clean up the trash.
