Admin notes

I have disabled direct registration on this instance a few weeks ago – right before the current influx of new users on the Fediverse.

Good timing, I guess.

I tried to keep manually deleting all these spam posts, but it was to much too handle (or more: I was too lazy to check the database regularly for new spam posts).

The current registration system is working out great for the moment. People even add some introduction/CV on their mails – and they are all great. I never required this (nor do I plan to require it in the future), but it is very lovely. 🧡 Thanks!

BTW: There was a new #WriteFreely release a few days ago and I'm planning to update this instance soon™.

I have deleted ca. 5000 entries on this instance today. SO. MUCH. SEO. BULLSHIT…

If I have deleted your post by accident too, please feel free to contact me by mail. I have a backup and will restore your posts as soon as possible.

WriteFreely needs a way to deal with this SEO spam issue. Maybe I'll look into adding a captcha for registration – even though these are rarely accessible for handicapped people.
