I hate spam attacks! + some linkage and news about the SPN newsletter project

Today, after months of getting irritating and completely incomprehensible spam comments by anons, I finally disabled commenting for everyone and enabled commenting for registered users only! I really hate doing that, but having to delete more than 15 spam comments per day really got on my nerves. This change will only be temporary though. After 2 weeks I will try enable comments for everyone again. Hopefully all those darn spam anons will have lost interest by then.

Also for all anime fans on my f-list, I found a nice site where you can watch a lot of animes online without the trouble of downloading each episode. The site is called ani-watch. Go, check it out! :)

On a different note, it would be great if you could vote in the SPN newsletter poll, vol.2 if you haven't already. So far, 11 people took the poll! I want to have a few more votes before I analyze the results.

On the same matter, I want to announce that the asylum [info]spn_newsletter was handed over to me by [info]dea_liberty on June 19th, 2008. That will spare me the effort of creating a new asylum! :)

Supernatural Fanvid Rec

Over at dean_sam Blacklid recommended a fanvid made by Dayln03. I strongly suggest watching that video because it's splendid! Well-edited, the song "Cells" by The Servant (Yes the one from the "Sin City OST"!) is fitting! It's one of the best fanvids I have ever seen! So go watch it right here!

(IJ still doesn't let me embed videos!)

ETA 08-28-2007 @ 10:56 The original post in which Blacklid reced this vid has been deleted due to community rules violation. The mantainer doesn't allow recs, only the authors themselves can rec their own stuff. (Thank God I stumbled over this post before it was deleted, I really would have missed out on this great video.)

Issues concerning IJ

Today I encountered a lot of problems concerning insanejournal which is really bugging me to no end! Is it only me or do you have the same issues?

1. The Comment Counter On My Profile....
... doesn't work right. This is a problem that exists right from the start when I got my account here. (Read here!) Just a minute ago I received an email from the Support Team I wrote to the other day saying that "it appeared to be a caching issue that was resolved with the new faster server". Okay, why everybody else's comment counter worked fine even with the old server is beyond me, but hopefully it will work now.

2. Nearly all icons in my posts were set to "default"...
...and not only that! My "music" and my "mood" was also deleted so that I had to go back to each and every entry (thank god there were only 12) to set it right once again. Perhaps this issue also occurred because they changed the server, therefore it would be interesting if anyone else has encountered similar issues.

3. When someone friends me and I friend him/her back, the user-name doesn't show with the "mutual friends".
That was/is really annoying! I refreshed the site like a thousand times until it finally worked, and when I got back to my profile some time later the user-name was again not listed with my "mutual friends". Grrr...

4. Comments Went Missing
So far I noticed two - I just checked it, and there are over 30 comments missing! Where are they? Will they ever come back? Crap, now I'm really pissed off!

Has anyone else experienced issues like that?

my "received comments" counter and me

I find it very funny, no seriously now, how my "received-comments" counter seems to work! You know, I already wrote about that problem it seems to have and what I did so far to solve it, in this post. And just a moment ago, out of the blue, I thought, "Wtf!?" and ckecked whether it worked or not and, surprise surprise, it does. Well halfway, though! It only showed the two recent comments I got, but what is with the other 32 comments, huh? I really wonder what it'll do next.

Issues concerning the comment counter

Today I noticed that the number of the total amount of comments posted on my insanejournal doesn't show on my user-profile when I click on more details. I hope this is just a temporary issue because every one else's comment counter seems to work fine, it's only mine that refuses to work properly. Or does anyone else have the same issue?

I'm also glad to see that my asylum [info]jaredp_fans, the first community I've ever created in my life, has already its first members.

ETA 08-22-2007 @ 18:21 The problem is still not solved! I talked to [info]mllesatine about that matter and asked her whether she knows of a link of a support center or something similar to that. She provided the link and I sent my request. I'm curious what they say and whether they're able to help me.

ETA 2 08-23-2007 @ 2:37am And it goes on! More details here.

ETA 3 08-24-2007 @ 16:16 And still no end in sight! Details

My first asylum!

Yesterday I created my first asylum: [info]jaredp_fans. It's an asylum for all the Jared Padalecki fans out there.

Creating an asylum isn't really that difficult! Only setting up a proper layout, writing rules and stuff like that is a little bit tricky, but I like tricky things! :)

Anyway, I was wondering if someone knows where to pimp my asylum? Any suggestions? Also, I can't seem to find a setting section where I can enable/disable the tags-function so that members will be able/not able to add tags on their own! Does anyone know where I can find this section?

ETA 08-20-2007 @ 3:08am: The problem is now solved! Information on how to set the tag function for asylums can be found here. Thanks to [info]mllesatine for providing the link and [info]das_dingsi for giving such a useful piece of information!
