Bonjour tous! I'm the only person who can admin the SDL and obviously I haven't done anything with it for a long time, so I am sorry about that! The software is a couple of versions behind, so I will try and get it updated and see if that helps the security issues. Unfortunately, the software isn't as well developed as, for example, the phpBB software that the CBB runs on, so it's harder to administrate. Also (as I'm sure people have gathered!) I'm afraid I don't have very much time to devote to it. However, I will try and tidy things up a bit.

Um, has my SDL account been deleted? Apparently it no longer exists. :?

It's possible, I'm afraid! I tried to make sure I only deleted definite spam, but I may have included a couple of real people! I'm afraid you will have to re-register. If you had posted fic or comments on others' fics, please send me a link so I can work out how to connect your new profile to your old activity.

Thank you for responding and doing some admin on SDL.
I was concerned in case SDL became unable to support the number of non people on the board and stopped working.

Congratulations on your promotion and I hope the new job is going well :D .

The SDL spam reviewers seem to have been extremely busy overnight :( . Unless they're just picking on me!

I've had one as well, I've reported it.

I suspect I have too - haven't been on to check, but had notification of a 'new review' - last time that happened it was spam.

They picked on me, too. I did report it, as I've reported others, but...!! I was able to delete one, as the delete key was still there, but mostly that seems to disappear from spam comments.

Yeah, you can only delete comments on your drabbles if they are from a non-member (or you made said comments in the first place!); our spammer friend is a member by the name wq123. It seems with all these spammers that they go for the first [x] drabbles in the 'Titles' section of SDL and so they attack mostly drabbles beginning with quote marks, numbers, and the letter A.
