Re: Here come the spammers!!!
I think, overall, the core devs have approached BP development in the most effective order possible.
There really isn’t much point in adding spam protection to a platform nobody uses, and nobody would be using BP if the core developers had spent the past two years hardening it with spam protection instead of adding member-centric features.
But we’ve hit “critical mass” now …and we have to deal with the spam problem before BP is ready to move from a science experiment people use on hobby sites to a “platform” that developers can use for serious commercial endeavors. And I’m willing to throw a sizable chunk of dev time at it to help make that happen.
Anyhow, at this point I’ve written the first draft of the proposed changes to the forum, and what I need now is everyone to read through it and post their feedback.
Because if something in the proposal doesn’t work for your application …or you can think of a better way to do it… you’d better get a post up NOW before we start writing code.
