Spread the word on DDP!

12 posts in this topic

I have been noticing some hits in my logs from other sites, mostly from DDP members other pages. I also noticed some hits starting to come from other sites like the http://www.blackcode.com/ forums (but I cannot find the exact thread). It made me decide to post this request to all.

Please, post a link to DDP wherever you see an opportunity! Other forums, other sites, your OWN sites, etc... I will try to make a nice standard size button and maybe a banner this weekend to make it easier. But please always link to the MAIN page at http://www.StankDawg.com/ and not directly to the forums. I want people to read the message at the front and know what we are about here.

If anyone knows where the blackcode hits are coming from, let me know.

Try running this on your raw logs, either upload it to your web host, or run it locally and change the log file location variable - it should pick out all the referrals from blackcode to stankdawg.com including full paths.

On second though, it might timeout if you run it over the webserver, if your log files are very large, therefore you could try ssh'ing into your account and running it from the command line.

well, the hits come from "showthread.php" but it simply does not list the exact thread.

scratch that, I didn't have my log formatted very well and missed the thread ID...

well, after a little digging I discovered where the hits were coming from. Once I finally got a minute to dig through the logs properly, that is.

ROTFLMAO... it turns out that some people in that forum were using my smilies/emoticons/whatever in their posts! Apparently that board is too lame to give them any, so they use mine.

It is a tiny amount of bandwidth really, but I wish the would have asked first. Or hell, let them come to our forums!

On second thought, after reading his posts (User: Vicious6666) I don't want any part of him. As a matter of fact, I now have to register with them just to post a comment that he is using my bandwidth without permission and that I have no association with him whatsoever!

Here is what I posted in this thread http://www.blackcode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3099 :

Just for the record:

1) I came here because I had hits in my log file coming from here. It turns out that it was some lame-ass named Vicious6666 using graphics/emoticons from my site. I couldn't care less about the tiny bandwidth, but don't think I wouldn't find out what you were doing. You aren't slick.

2) After reading up on this schmuck, I want to make it perfectly clear that neither I nor the DDP are associated with him in ANY WAY WHATSOEVER! He was simply using my graphics.

3) Cry LAME all you want Vicious6666 (or anyone else) I just stopped by to clarify the above comments with this 1 post and I will not be back.
