I accidentally deleted them all. Some of you may have seen a spam fest and there was a crap load. Unfortunately, in the select all, some legit posts got deleted. So please repost them.

on a brighter note, the pixelated christmas theme is now gone and the default is back. I also decided to axe the "cannot post until one week old" crap since some spammers are now actually waiting that long before going crazy. I activated the new system that has been under testing for a bit ,

This new system is now more simple and easy but also crazy complicated. You now need a neomallers counter with one hit accumulated to become verified. That's it. Easy for us. Crazy hard for spammers since now they need to verify through an active neopets account AND visit their shop. Genius. And awesome.

Yep! Unfortunately there are probably dormant sleeping spammer accounts but I'll deal with them as they show up. Eventually I'll upgrade the system to check for an active neopets account and verify through there. Since neopets user lookups are public, there's a possibility there... Not everyone would want a counter but still want to chat so this is a temporary fix for now.
