Hmm, I got a short redirect page with some cloudflare stuff on it. Maybe there's a new upgrade to prevent spam? Probably wishful thinking.

Any fixing at all is good. The pink was vile - I felt ill every time I accessed the board. Maybe spam takes longer.

It just concerns me because it doesn't look custom or professional anymore. it just looks like a basic style from a free forum. i'm worried they're downgrading us :(

(I'll draw your attention to the fact that the forum hoster phpBB's name is now larger than the title of the forum, were we always based from phpBB?)

It was phone before but it looks like they've reverted to vanilla style. Maybe because it's easier to tweak for spam settings. But that's just me being optimistic.

I did receive a few spam emails yesterday, but for the most part it's been great! Real emails on real topics! :D :D


Emmabeth! Hip hip hurray! Kudos! :D :D

Just one problem I had today, I was replying to a post, and when I hit submit, it took me to the verify page, and everything I wrote was lost. It wasn't important so I didn't rewrite it. But, i think I had timed out while writing, and so had to verigyr me again. Otherwise, this is great!

I would rather get kicked outnto very while posting than having spam posting. It does show that it was checking to make sure o wasn't spamming. Good test! Now, I know I need to make sure I am in for sure before I begin writing and not take too long. :D

Usually if you use the back button in your browser you can find the text of your post again. Though we've had that feature for a while now and it doesn't seem to prevent the spam.

Scrub that - I was thinking of the previous 'Are you a spammer?' intervention, but I just had the 'checking your browser' screen, it lost my post, and I couldn't get it back...
