Thanks for the update. By the way, I didn't mean to sound so blunt in my last post, I was in a bit of a rush to get out the door for a meeting. I am sure Scirra are working on it, and it is certainly not them at fault. :(

What I don't get is that the spam is totally useless, like no links, no adverts, just rubbish.... it's a wonder they even know how to use a keyboard...
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

Apologies for the inconveniences with the emails and spam. We have temporarily disabled new tutorial submissions until we can find a way to block the spam submissions. This should at least stop all the subscription emails going out. We are also implementing some measures to prevent the forum spam too, although we need to see how it works over the next few days to see how effective that is.

Sorry for the trouble - this has been a tricky attack, with nearly every aspect of it changing over time making it harder to block.

The server has an email queue which can take a few hours to work through, I guess it might take a while to clear...
