Spam and software update

Post by Ellimist » Fri Jan 13, 2017 8:37 am

As Capn has already informed you about the hordes of spam we have been getting over the last few months, I've been looking to put a more substantial deterrent for spambots. On a related note, the site's software had a major update recently which promises to take care of many issues including spambots.

In the coming weekend (14-15 Jan, 2017), I'll be upgrading the forum software to the newest version that has been released. This might lead to intermittent issues like inconsistent visuals, pages not loading, etc. which will all go away when I'm done. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

We'll look at how well the new version takes care of the spam problem, before looking at other measures.

Hope all you had a wonderful New Year's.
