Thanks (again) David for updating the website.

There seems a small typing error in the BB code page. To use
Quoted
you should not use (quote)Quoted(/quoted) but: (quote)Quoted(/quote). I used ( instead of [.

By the way, when I was using a blue link, or just typing the url of the BB code, my post was recognized as spam.

Happy crunching,
Path7.

The "Notify about new private messages by email" in Forum Preferences seems to be set "ON" by default.

There has been much discussion with David Anderson (Dr. BOINC) this week about this, on the Google group "Teams and Email" thread, the boinc_dev mail list (11/20 post) and BOINC Trac.

He has stated unequivocally that this must NOT be set ON by default.


Please un-set this for everyone, and those that want email notifications can reset it to "ON".

Thanks for the heads up. I turned this pref off for everyone and made 'off' the default.

I'm trying to post a link to an errored work unit in the 5.85 thread but all I get is:

"Your post has been marked as spam by akismet.net anti-spam system. If you feel that this is wrong, please try editing your message."

Message 48992 - Posted: 24 Nov 2007, 11:04:34 UTC

I posted to R@H->science->Minimum energy function

I dared to url tag TINKER "spam ... edit your post" type stuff, I could not get back to my post (to edit it), I have no idea if my post is just hidden or it was rejected.

I have also mentioned this on the mod's contact point, not that I will link to it :).

So some questions:

How do you link without getting thrown in the spam basket?
Are the posts that are assumed spam retrievable?

I use Firefox version 2.0.0.9 + NoScript 1.1.8 + Tab mix plus 0.3.6 is this causing me trouble?

How do you link without getting thrown in the spam basket?


First, compose your message somewhere else and do a "copy". Then post a brief token message to the message board. Then edit your post and replace the token message with a "paste" of your real message. The spam filter only checks new posts, and doesn't check when you do an edit.

Thanks to the poster "transient" who found this workaround.

Are the posts that are assumed spam retrievable?


I don't think so, unless you saved a copy. I like to "copy" my post to the copy/paste buffer just in case it gets swallowed.

thats a whole lot of time just to post a link
so you can't even post links back to your own work units.

Well, you all wanted the "newest, latest" forum software. You got it.

I guess we will just have to live with it for a while.

I didn't last long, but I won't resort to spam so...

buy my doughnuts

These are really my doughnuts, the picture is taken by me and I declare that it is GPL , or any other copyright copy left or copy anything you want.

I made these from flour, yeast, sugar and can give you the recipe, they were baked in 180C peanut oil and rolled in cinnamon and sugar.


Please remember to buy my doughnuts
buy my doughnuts
buy my doughnuts

PS they are not available in stores or from me personally, and in fact they are already eaten.

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=2208

The developers are looking into different options.

1. is to teach Akismet what is SPAM and what isn\'t. At this moment it doesn\'t know, so posting URLs, even pointing to a thread elsewhere on the same forum, is considered spam.

2. is to use reCAPTCHA for signing up through the website.

3. this code is available, see change log 13835, do not allow a profile to be made unless you have at least credit.


http://akismet.com/faq/

Where does the spam go?

When the plugin catches something as spam it saves it in the database for 15 days in case you want to check it out manually and then automattically deletes it. In the unlikely event something gets incorrectly identified as spam you can correct it and it submits the \"false positive\" back to Akismet for analysis and improvement of our system. If a spam comment happens to get through and you mark it as spam within WordPress, it does the same thing. Akismet becomes more effective the more you use it.


If I\'m reading that right, then someone would need to have access to the DB so they could set it straight on what is spam and what is not. I\'ll put my hand up for about 1 hour a day for a month or two.

Though why on earth BOINC didn\'t start with a blank blacklist is beyond me.

Have you checked BOTH the local settings AND the account settings (on the website)?

Carson posted:
I have not recieved any new work since the post. Completed work on 22 NOV and nothing since then. I\'m running Boinc 5.10.28.


...along with their EMail address, which will surely result in lots of SPAM, so I\'ve hidden the original post.

Carson, Rosetta has plenty of work, so I suspect the information in this thread will reveal the cause. Most likely you have several projects set up, and BOINC had decided it is time to work on the others to keep up with deadlines.
