With Aleks's kind and professional help, I've been able to update the forum software to the newest version. Let's hope the antispam features have improved since 1.1.2.

Yes, they've picked up in number, we ought to do something about them.

Sadly, I must say that these account data have proven to be quite…  evasive. I lost them again. Mind sending me an email, Kilian? My key's on the public keyservers, if you need to encrypt it.

Not quite accurate, we're getting several spam posts a day. Seems I was quicker to delete them most of the time. :)

I think the spam protection would get better if we updated the forum software to the current version (1.1.7). This could be most easily done by auto-update on the admin panel.

Prerequisite: Make the forum source writable for the web server.

I would have done that already if the goddamn VPN crap wasn't malfunctioning these days. Either I get no connection the VPN server or I don't get any connection through it.

Aleks, you have the login data to our virtual server, don't you? If you would...? :)

That's why I have a console based (text-only) feed reader.

Erhm.

I'm not really sure what to do about spam on the SMF forum. Honestly, it's been only one incident so far, and we reacted quickly. Ther are some spam accounts around here. We should delete them, I guess.

I am totally underinformed about the status of the new SFB. Although I concluded there must be a temporal gap between the two, and I was wondering, what are people doing in the meantime?
The new SFB is planned for mid-summer next year. In the meantime, people try to keep themselves from starving, I guess. Kepser will probably not be able to finish his course in Formal Languages II, because he's heading 'draußwärts,' hoping to find more luck in the industry. His employment contract will run out by the end of this year, as will all other's contracts.

BTW, please keep in mind that this is a publicly readable forum.

Hi folks,

is there a possibility to have stronger spam protection here? I'm reading the forum in my feed reader. It is somewhat annoying to sit in the office having closeups of certain body parts on the screen. Apart from that single case, the text-based spam is simply annoying.

Maybe next summer or so. Depends on too many factors to tell right now.  :'(

Maybe in five years or so, as a junior professor! (If I learn how to do fundraising till then)

Last year's story continues. You probably know a lot more than me this time.

The story of candidate one (you know who) rejecting and candidate two (you know who it is, at least you certainly do if you have talked to me in the last half year) being asked continues. I personally like the recent development, but nothing's any kind of official yet. This would also imply my return to Tübingen. Still you might very well say this candidate is not a straight continuation of v. Stechow's work.

I am totally underinformed about the status of the new SFB. Although I concluded there must be a temporal gap between the two, and I was wondering, what are people doing in the meantime?
