Watch out for spam

I’m seeing some spam coming in on your blogs, and they’re on older posts.

This happens because spam bots look for old posts.

To prevent such spam, you should be running Akismet on your blog. But even Akismet won’t kill that reasonable spam (which has a full email address and a rational comment like “Great post! I’ll keep reading your blog” – the spam is in the URL it posts).

Best way to prevent it is Settings – Discussion – Automatically close comments on articles older than … Set it to 14 days at most.


Awarding certificates

Hi! We’re reading the incredible final posts that are coming in, and viewing the projects.

Our awards ceremony will be on Thursday, May 16 at 7:30-8:00 pm Pacific Time (world clock here) in Collaborate. Certificate earners, mentors, moderators, and class participants are invited to attend.  Join the session here!

So, if you are behind – don’t panic! We can easily allow an extra week or two if you have posts missing or are behind – just let Lisa or Pilar know you need some time. :-)

We’re also reading that we have some folks who are really eager to help next year. Yay! Just to make sure we don’t miss you, email Lisa to get on her email list for POT Cert 2013-14.
