forum update

Postby joe » Sat Mar 26, 2011 11:45 am

I hope to be moving the forum to php3.0X in the next few days. hopefully this won't impact the current forum too much. when all the data has been moved and appears to be functioning OK, we'll switch. you may need to reregister. this will give us greater stability and allow us to fight spammers better.

if you notice, it says we have 5000+ members. well, 4000 of those have come since the worm attack in September. thankfully, it's only yielded about a dozen spam posts. basically, any member who has never posted will be deleted. we have some tricks to prevent robots from registering too. we should be able to maintain the regular users, but, there is a chance you will need to sign back in.

the upgrade will take care of some of the error messages we've been getting.

Nosebleed, which is the "skin" that gives us the look and feel of the forums has not been continued to 3.0, so the appearance of the forum will change. I hope to choose one that looks and functions similar.
