i find it interesting to discover these forum glitches (if ever they are) which are tied up to a member with the forum name TRAP FEEDBACKER. what tipped me off is a repeated presence of a GUEST which shows up when viewing an index of new posts (see screenshot below).
out of curiosity, i clicked on the first GUEST which links to the member profile. i was thinking that he should have registered that name for forum use. but no, it was not. GUEST was linked to an already existing member. and each time i clicked on the GUEST profile links (as encircled), what appears is the profile of a different member, every single one of them different from the others:
GUEST as linked to the following member profiles:

weird, right? so i checked out each of the topics which appears to have the GUEST poster. the only common thing which i discovered is that the last poster for each topic is by the forum name TRAP FEEDBACKER. well here is one profile which ties up the others, so i went to search for this member's posts. as i'm writing this, TRAP FEEDBACKER's number of posts is: 9. but wait, if it's only 9 posts, why am i getting 22 pages of this member's posts (and my forum settings are designed to show 25 posts per page). imagine that.
25 posts/page x 22pages = 550 posts (more or less, since i didnt check the last page ). definitely something is not right.
if that is not weird enough, if you browse through the posts themselves, a signature appears, and every one of them is again of a different name: -Mike, -funky munky, -Jervic, -Mr Bus Driver, -jamie4390, and many more.
what i'm thinking is this could be a group account, with each of the posters signing out with their ID as decided in their group. that could be it. BUT WHY is the index of new posts showing GUEST posters? and WHY is each linked to a different member profile? and WHY is the post count OFF by HUNDREDS or 61 times more than the post count as shown below?
a mystery for the admins and mods.
Trap Feedbacker is OpaQue's project for Xisto. Any guest can send a feedback of Xisto to Xisto - Support. OpaQue then decides what is placed in our forum with the username TRAP FEEDBACKER.This was announced in our forum and does this clarify the phenomenon?

so that's what Xisto FEEDBACKER is all about! now, why didn't i get to read that announcement?
my bad. LOLZ my defense is that i haven't noticed an overflow of GUESTS these past few weeks since it was introduced. only today (and i've been on Xisto daily reading new posts, enough to notice it. ). i suppose it's the delay in approval, and only now are they sorted out, hence the deluge of GUEST posts.
I can solve your mystery Server..When we had first introduced Trap FeedBacker I was supposed to screen through the tickets ( Suggestions ) and post them accordingly BUT as the work load on my end increased a lot It got very difficult for me and Shree to handle the loadHe was busy with optimizing Trap, Asta and his coding work. I was busy handling Xisto - Web Hosting so we would honestly not handle the stuff. Then OpaQue had a brilliant idea where he created a script that helps approve these comments..He is still removing the bugs out of it.. But if he approves then all of the mods and admins will soon have the login to the script
I will update the forum when we get the script.. I would highly appreciate it though if all of the moderators gave me their personal emails so that I will be able to reach them faster and more secure You can choose not to give me your emails if you wish But if you do then please send me an email from your personal email addresses to VELMA[AT]XISTO[DOT]COMThanks again for your support
It seems a little more work may be needed - we're getting spam from Trap Feedbacker now
The BBCode wasn't parsed, but some sort of check to prevent this would be good. Perhaps see how many links are in a post and limit it to 3 or something like that.
I will have to apologize about that.. I was sleepy and had a lot of posts and stuff to finish.. Thanks again for monitoring the forums for me. You will not believe the kind of spam that you will see in these posts..Some of them are really good but some talk about some random crap.Thanks again guys
I still don't really understand what the Trap 17 Feedbacker is supposed to do. Is it supposed to collect information from a form somewhere? Or is it supposed to be posted manually from Xisto - Support?Let me explain to you how it actually works ;-

1. Xisto feedbacker was originally supposed to go through Xisto - Support but there was spam and all that junk, Besides it got difficult for me and OpaQue to do it for we had our own daily tasks so that idea was shelved.
2. OpaQue developed a script that allowed me to see the original post, entire topic and the opinion sent. I did not have to manually copy/paste the reply into trap's forum user account.
3. Guests who are browsing through www . Xisto . com /index .php/ at the bottom and a floating bar has options for them to give their opinions.
The same is even there at Astahot but it ends with /info.php
i'm beginning to see the wisdom in having Trap Feedbacker. i just came by an old tip here on Xisto which is still bringing good feedback, for which i'm entirely surprised, so i'm starting to like it.
nice job opaque and velma.
