I don't see an Administrator section for this forum - so I will ask my question here. I'm a bit concerned with the message I receive regarding <accounts with zero posts and zero activity during the last month will be deleted periodically> I'm still searching / using and experimenting with Code :: Blocks - and I am quite sure I won't have any pertinent questions to ask in the next month or so. Deleting someone's account for zero posts and zero activity (what is this ? is a logon considered activity ?) Anyway, I just want to voice my concerns regarding that pop up message ,

Thank you for raising that concerns but I am afraid we won't change the policy and I'll tell you why:

Every week although we have quite string anti-spam checks roughly 15 spammers make it though the system and register with the forums. To remove those the method has proven to work extremely well.

Thats also why we have this "welcome" post section here: Remember: You only need to post a single message once (not per week/year...) just once per forum lifetime. That shouldn't be too hard. Anyway: As guest (i.e. not registered) you can read all important posts anyways. So we also assume that you register here because you have something to say/ask.

If you have better alternatives: Give us a hint!!! :D

Edit: BTW: In the year 2014 (only) we have killed 329339 spammers... just to give you a number how hard the fight is we do. ???

Thank you Sir - for your response and very informative explanation !

I hope, at some point I can become a contributor to this Code::Blocks forum - It's nice to have such a community and i am thankful for all the volunteers that keep this list operational.

I would have never imagined that's how many spammer folk you'd have on a typical forum , yikes.

Glad to be part of the community,

Thank you, I am trying to learn C in Linux: good to find out if Code blocks will help.

Hello all! Spambot "Betsemes" here. I'm new to spamming... errr, programming. You may email me at betsemes at SpamBotHeaven dot com.

Baaad joke :-) Seriously now. I graduated some 25 years ago with a bachelor degree in mathematics and computer science. I never found a job as a programmer, maybe I didn't look hard enough. I'm now relearning what I used to know, learning C++, and planning to build my own commercial projects.

I'm currently using Notepad++ as text editor, MinGW, and WxWidgets for GUI programming. I'm getting tired of how hard is to write a single program without the debugging tools that Code::Blocks users take for granted. So I'm considering downloading and installing it. The problem is my hard drive is almost full, I love Notepad++ as a text editor (I use it for almost everything), and I'm very reticent to bring yet another program to my already crowded hard drive. However, I'm seriously considering it; my registering here is proof of it, I think.

Well, administrators, I hope you'd forgive the little innocent joke of mine  ;D.

EDIT: I'm downloading it as I write this update. The tutorial on wxSmith convinced me on that. I don't know anything that would pave the way towards building my planned project faster than this plugin. I'll be playing with it during the next days.

I hope there are no wars over which language is best, as it has classical repercussions for some humans.
