Hi,

It was mostly just updates of admin functions and security fixes.

Will be updating to a more interesting new version soon.

I've been thinking about this new forum... you should get Fuzzy-Rabbit.com in neon flashing lights. The picy of the rabbit should have a party hat on and on of them blowy things, not sure what it's called... and uhm... we should all have titles like... "special" or "Sane" you know? and uhm.... Ooh When you press buttons it makes funny noises! :D

I've been thinking about adding the titles (ranks).... I will consult the community regarding what titles we should have :D

The problem with upgrading to the new version is that I need to check what security features I will need to enable to prevent the spammers getting in. We still get HEAPS of spammers trying to register accounts for the forum.

That is a huge problem with spammers. Have you tried that thing that most sites use where you have to type in a code so you know it's not a computer generated thing getting in? That would stop some of them...

"Slightly loopy"
"Fruitcake"
"Special"
"Certifiable"

:lol:

The forum went down for a minute or two a minute ago... that's all I've noticed so far.

CAPCHAS.

can we get a bowing emote....? you know... for when someone singlehandedly answers everyone's questions? like when nytquill does a dissertation or something.... lol :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Now we're photogenic...You know we don't stand a chance...

Unfortunately captchas can be broken by optical character recognition software, so they only block the technologically impaired spammers :D

They do seem to be getting caught out by the random question asked when they register on the forum though.
