Recent private message spam attack on TOG members

Posted 9th February 2010 at 04:43 PM by Cailith (The Admin Blog)

A few TOG members, possibly quite a few, received a private message (PM) from a spammer a week or so ago. The account was a sleeper; it had sat inactive since its creation in May 2008 and then was suddenly used for this mail out.

This account has since been deactivated, and cannot send PMs anymore. It was one of those odd ones that defied logic, but what we've done is to restrict the number of recipients that a NON-member of TOG can send down to two at a time. We are also investigating...

Basie returns to active duty as Lead Engineer

Posted 20th January 2010 at 05:10 PM by Cailith (The Admin Blog)

It is a great pleasure to announce that Basie, our beloved Kiwi Admin, has strapped on the red wings once again and has rejoined the ranks of active TOG Administrators.

It was many moons ago that Basie first stepped up to become an Admin, and he is a real asset to the team, and I personally am looking forward to working with him again. I've played several games with him along the way as well, the most memorable would have to be Planetside. Man, we had some fun wiping ourselves out...

For those people who subscribe to the Games Industry Podcast Forum, you will have seen I sneaked up episode 14 very quietly. And if you keep your eyes open you might just see 15 appearing any minute! But only for those who have been nice

This is our last cast for 2009. We are taking a well earned break... read: chained to the 2010 drawing board, planning interviews, articles, kidnapping prospective guests.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to a few people who have given...

On behalf of the TOG Admin team, I'd like to wish all of our members a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Holidays or whatever else you'd like to celebrate at this time of year!

It's our members that make TOG what it is, and we'd like to thank you all for your support, contribution and general TOG'ishness over this year, and hope we have many more to come.
