I don't know what you did, but it's incredible how the bogus posts have gone down significantly over the last few days... what a change from last week Friday - that day was truly HORRIBLE!

This forum has become livable again, so a huge thanks to the one who ate all that spam :D

I second that! I think this is just normal course of contests. You have a huge influx of participants early on and it dies off very quickly with only the "real" helpers sticking around.

I'm glad I missed it and even happier they fixed it. Sorry you all had to go through that, happens in cycles, spring tends to be the heavier cycle of spammers and fly by posters (used to run a few forum boards back in the VBulletin days).

Spring season is always the worse season for spam. It's like every spammer, fly by, troll and strange one comes out of hibernation in Spring.

Lol love the Spam pic Sophia :-)

Man I was asleep that day and woke up to a barage of like 30 or more emails from the forum, it wasn't fun. I have set up a separate section in my Gmail now for the forum so it's much better now. However I don't seem to get all the new post emails I use to get which I haven't figured out why exactly.

Gmail has been kind of on the fritz lately, having the same problems with other emails that I usually get as well. Have you tried looking with the search (using Koodo as the search term), maybe it went to spam folder because so many came in on that day and gmail deemed it spam. That has happened to me too and I have to mark them "not spam" sometimes.

You made a label (their version of folders) perhaps it all went to the same label filter.

Oh my gosh Kid, you actually receive emails of it all? You are one brave man, lol! That was the first thing I disabled one of the first days I started participating here :)
But seriously, I really appreciate what's been done, Ahmad, you thank the Mobile Masters from me too then :D

They don't go to my label I created, the reply emails on questions I've answered do but not that a new question has been posted. I checked my spam and they weren't there, instead I found them going directly into my "Trash" section lol. Don't know what I did to make them go there but I guess maybe I have to adjust my Forum label parameters slightly. Thanks for the reply Sheal :-)

No problem Kid, I've been using gmail since its inception give or take. The labels was always a bone of contention for me, didn't like the way they did that but to each their own right. I prefer actual folders.
