Gallery Upgrade

New Galleries...
The Old Coppermine Gallery I had installed was good for only one thing...
Constant unending nasty spam bot comments

every frigging morning I'd wake up to several e-mails "Someone left a comment!"
Always on the same picture and it was always nasty porn with links.
We're not talking het porn but subjects headers like this:


It was all scat, bestiality, pedo shit and it was disgusting
and coppermine does not have an admin feature that will allow you to turn off comments.
Monday I woke up to not one, two or three spam comments but 247 overnight.

Just like I totally got rid of my guest book because in one night I had over three thousand messages left all of them for Prescription Drugs.
I deleted thevirginreaper's guest book totally too yesterday... she had over 20,000 prescription drug comments in hers.
I am not storing that info on my server just for a god damn guest book

So I have a new gallery installed and password protected it but made it really easy to get the password for visitors.
All for safeguards so random porn bots cannot spam me constantly.

I also made it so only registered users CAN leave comments. For incentive to actually register I made a few galleries visible to registered users
only as sort of a "bonus thanks" for taking the time to register.

If you have a moment if you could go look at the new gallery on my site and tell me how it works for you
i'd appreciate it.

I also found quite a few more old fanart pictures that didn't get resurrected before that's I've put back up in the OLDE ART section
for me to groan over and you to see how really horribly terrifically BAD I was not so very long ago.



is the link.
and the password for ease of those of you taking a look is:


Didn't see that one coming did you? Lol!
The password is the same for all the folders.

I had fun looking at some of your GW pics. I especially liked Gundam Wars and Catherine's kissing contest. Those were so cute!

Seriously, I stopped linking to it. I didn't know they could still get to it, but thanks for deleting it.

Tried to register and I got this message.

Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to mail.fablespinner.com:25 in /home/fabled/public_html/artwork/lib/smtp/smtp.php on line 69

I'll try again later.

Well now it says that it made the account. O.o

I really really like my forum but I keep getting bunches of spam members. I have to delete about two a day. Do you have the same problem on yours or is there some way to control membership?

I got rid of my phpBB board just beacuse of stupid spam bots.

I see you are registered....
I've no clue what's going on with the gallery e-mailer.
It's not working for me either, but's it's not important.
It's just a thank you note it's trying to send you after you register.
