We finally did it! We built our own spam filter plug-in since we were having so many challenges with the existing spam filters, and we released it just last week! Being the geek that I am, this new plug-in has made me absolutely giddy! In my true, Boston-like way, I announced it to our internal team and told them I was "wicked excited", to which my boss replied, "You're such a nerd"! :-) I can't help it! The ability this plug-in gives us is far more intuitive, will give us the opportunity to identify patterns and adjust the filters, as needed. What a concept! With that being said, I want to break down what we've done so you are aware of the new requirements.
Now that this new plug-in has been running for about a week, there are a few small changes that we want to make that will make our jobs a little easier, so we are going to take the site down for about 1 1/2 hours tonight. Don't be alarmed if you see a maintenance page tonight between the hours of 10pm CDT and 11:30pm CDT; it's all good stuff!
We hope that you guys are enjoying the new spam filters as much as we are, but if there are improvements you think we should incorporate or something we've forgotten, please don't hesitate to let us know! We love feedback!
*Side note: There are a few random posts that are holding on to some of the previous spam filters, so if you're moderated and it doesn't seem to make sense, don't worry! It will soon fade away and shouldn't be moderated anymore in the future (unless you post something on our banned keyword list ).
Coming off of SolarWinds' annual virtual learning event, THWACKcamp 2015 provided thousands of attendees with several deep-dive, best practice and how-to sessions on a number of topics regarding SolarWinds products and IT management in general. With over 9 hours of streaming video and live chat, there was a ton of information to consume so our Head Geeks have consolidated some of their favorite moments and in what better fashion than a monthly mission contest?!
