Thanks Paul for polite, nice encouraging comments!
The groups I sort of renamed them “Places”. There’s a WP/BP methodology to make “groups” become “places” but I am afraid to mess things up.
Two groups are set as public so you can see them. And clicking `http://couchsurfdate.com/dating/activity/` perhaps can see other group’s name only (set as private group).
Groups/Places sort of define where the collective member/user wants to congregate to meet up physically. Mainly in a country format, and also specific cities/region if chances of bigger user population. Members are free to make “Suggestions”.
Have just added a few scope of outer soc connections, and karma. Those who are Kiva.org members and then join the team, will get their Kiva Loans amount credited ($25 USD).
Thanks Paul. I read the article briefly last week and will read it again.
Meanwhile here are some findings:
1) It seems apparently the hackers are using some auto-login scripts – cos after setting achievements for tracking/awarding 1 point per login, some accounts clocked in over 20K points in a single day (twenty thousand times of login in to the site?!)
2) Another research method which was accidental – i setup Feedjit to see traffic and potential users coming in. Apparently the hacker use this search phrase – “powered by WordPress and Buddypress” so they must have and actively seeking sites powered by Buddypress knowing they can come in to create spam easily.
Anyway the above observations is for those who are working on their sites as reference.
