Normally I would delete this type of post and ultimately Admin may do just that if and when they see it as they strictly prohibit that site getting any mention for good reason. As this has upset a few and many are angry with messages and emails going in all directions at what they witnessed and still are {I did not} I think for balance here is part of an "explanation" from a "person" appointed (not the owner) to help look after that very small forum.

appointed helper wrote:
the total members number can change without the 'newest member' username changing. If you see the number going up, that means that a previous signup has activated their account


Now this is possible :lol: BUT if this is true then 519 people {so far} suddenly decided to activate in an extremely short time and that would be extremely unusual to say the least, The odds of you winning lotto 10 times in a row are more realistic. Even the big forums in the world like APF and BYC would not have this high number suddenly want to activate old memberships in such a short time. {confirmed by I.T) It just does not happen unless its all fake.

Its a shame the owner (Elizabeth Wagstaff aka Vardy) did not bother to answer malaygame7 emails conf665 no doubt very :oops: :oops:

Best to stay away from it, especially your kids ;)

It has come to my attention and forwarded to the owners of APF for legal review of a topic on Backyard Poultry where people in glass houses are throwing stones YET AGAIN, big mistake. They have many time in the past attempted to "pick a fight" with us with slanderous topics and posts making false accusations such as the current hypocrisy nonsense (24 posts all copied and forward to the owners of APF). These posts are complete lies and are in retaliation for exposing their very dubious statistic in this topic which are fact with proof.

So lets look at them in detail shall we.. more at

Sleeper Spam accounts

One option old-school forum spammers used to employ was to create sleeper accounts that were activated later on. They do nothing initially then suddenly activate the registration [On forums that have user activation via email] after days, weeks or years and then they start posting links, either in forum posts or in profiles or both. One tell of probable sleepers are, apart from the zero posts is junky-looking email and the name pattern is usually the same, a name followed by 3 or more digits.

Spammers (especially sleepers):

* Create bare minimum accounts since every board is different (avatar size, method, and type for example), they are only interested in quantity of penetration, not quality.

* Make off topic, vacuous, plain, and unobtrusive posts, if any.

* Could care less about the happenings on the board. Truly not there, asleep.

* When the sleeper spammer awakens, they may attack with their spam ads, profile details, and signature links... in minutes.

* Spammers for the most part are human commanded robot processes interacting with the sites. The human's machine never connects directly with the site for fear of exposure.

* Lastly, most spammers are using robot processes on server farms, cloud networks, or hijacked machines to sling their crap. Identity is protected because the human has no direct interaction with the site, other than to check the public areas to see if his account is active, or that his spam was posted.


Source Reference http://www.stopforumspam.com/

There are NO Sleeper Spam accounts on APF nor ANY spammers or scammers here. Confirmed by our Professional I.T Department.

The latest idea on FYP is to up the user activity time from 5 mins to 10 mins as of yesterday 12/7/13

It was and by default is (based on users active over the past 5 minutes) like APF and all other real forums.

Now its (based on users active over the past 10 minutes) creates the "illusion" there are people on when they are not :roll:

Some more facts.

A.P.F has 91 pages of Members that have not posted (zero posts), at 50 per page that = 4550 or 21.35% of total membership (far below the world average)

Backyard Poultry has 147 pages of "Members" that have not posted (zero posts) at 50 per page that = 7350 or 47.8% of total membership (FAR higher than the world average)

This info is of 3/7/13 and is direct from each site and is 100% factual data.

So to recap, 47.8% almost HALF their (Backyard Poultry) "membership" has NEVER POSTED (zero posts), extraordinary and maybe a world record.
