I have decided on appropriate mods and updates for the forum. I will be installing these during the weekend of January 20-21. The forum may be unavailable during these times. If you experience issues with the forum AFTER the 21st, please let us know!

Current status: 10 PM EST. Database and files are backed up. Upgrades are being uploaded to another folder to allow for maximum forum up-time. I anticipate downtime late tonight/early this morning for the actual forum upgrade, followed by brief periods of downtime for modding.

If you can't post in the forum to report issues, please report issues to the email on the site's contact page. Thanks!

A new anti-spam mod has been installed and is being tested. Alone, it will not stop all spambots. It is part of a combination of mods that, together, should stop 90% or more of the spam.

Well, what is hopefully the last anti-spam mod has been put into place. Please contact me if you experience any problems.

You may notice that you cannot enter profile information. Entering profile information is disabled upon registration and until you have 5 posts. For the website field, it is disabled for you until you have 10 posts. Sorry about the inconvenience, but I had to delete more than half of our users because they were link-spammers. This should deter the majority of them.

If you have trouble updating your profile or doing anything else around here, let me know!
