Completed: Forum Software Upgrade

Mon Aug 17, 2020 8:58 am

Hi everyone,

Over the past few weeks the spamming has become more intense. I will be upgrading the forum software and implementing new anti-spam measures.

That may mean the site will be in-accessable for an hour or two.

In the even that the new site upgrades cause a problem, please reply to this thread. If you can't access this forum, you may respond via this contact form:

Thanks for all the work the moderators have done in tirelessly and constantly deleting the spam!
Hopefully these updates will lessen their workload.

Mike

I'm hoping soon, the spammers are getting intense.

Hi Everyone, the update is almost complete.
We're just going through making sure there aren't any bugs.

If you encounter any, please let me know!

Woot!

Thank you Mike, doesn't it look different?

I'll bet it takes us all a while to get used to it.

I think I have found what I need if I need to squish another spammer (in the MCP bans section).

If you come up with a step-by-step that would probably help.

(We've been a bit spoiled by the simple method that was exposed before)

Great stuff Mike - hopefully, this will stop the spammers!

Any chance of re-introducing the function to look at the latest submissions, please?

Cheers

I think it is there, but we don't have to do anything to select it.

When the icon to the left of the thread turns red, or gets a red highlight, that means there are new posts. Clicking on the icon takes us to the last unread post.

(I think that's how it is working for me)

:D

Came back to add, clicking on the icon does nothing, if there are no new posts.

If there are new posts, it takes us to them.
