Forum Spring Clean
Posted 12 Apr 11
The forum has certainly slowed down over recent months and become a magnet for spam.
I've taken a bunch of actions to give the whole forum something of a spring clean:
- The forum software has been updated to the very latest version.
- The very first forum on the site has been deleted, with all the posts and users merged into the curent database.
- Akismet spam bloking is in place to prevent most post-spam.
- Users are unable to setup a signature until they've made 5-posts. This should stop fly-by users from trying to spam the site with their signatures.
- Until I've cleaned up all the existing signature-spam, I've hidden signatures from appearing at all.
Hopefully these measures will help prevent the issue form reappearing in the future. I eventually would like to integrate a custom-built forum into the TwilightArchives.com website so that it can all be tied together beautifully.
I encourage you to dip back into the forum, reiginate the community there and continue to make use the fo the Report button to flag any content that should be removed.
Thank you and I'll see you in the forum!
