Re: Re:Purging and Deletion of Topics/Threads

Take a look at the construction and lighting sub-forums. Those do not get pruned. Notice anything? Besides how the same questions and topics keep coming up? Maybe because it's too much of a pain to search for the answer in 10 years of posts?

Re: Forum Moderation

I was just as frustrated as you people were, believe me. I worry that making it harder to join will drive people away .... but on the other hand I'd like to convene a grand jury and indict Russia for all the damn spammers. So, it's a balancing act, I guess. Thanks for sticking with us while we sorte...

Re: Forum Moderation

The old site had problems with activating users .... it was more luck than anything else that kept the spam volume low. I *think* I may have solved the spambot issue - at least for now. I've made a new forum called "Newly Registered Users". Only Admins, Mods and Newly Registered Users should be able...

Re: Forum Moderation

I would much ratherhave a preventive strategy in place than a continually-cleaning-up-the-mess strategy.

Obviously what we've tried so far doesn't work, but nonetheless we persevere.

Re: Forum Moderation

We're working on finding a solution to the problem, and we have been for some time. The things we have tried so far have only worked for a short time. Spammers have broken the CAPTCHA authentication. All it takes is one human to register and then the "answer this question" authentication is broken. ...

Good news/Bad News. Good news - we've moved to a new hosting provider that actually works weekends. It was never an issue before - but in the last month, because of changes at our long-time host - it now was an issue. So, reliability should be back to what it used to be (continual).

Make sure to stop by the Starship Modeler tables (main room, back left - there's a big sign). Introduce yourself so I can shake your hand and say "welcome aboard!".

8 point font --- you can change that in a variety of ways, starting in your User Control Panel. (Top right, click on your screen name).

Links to the Store: beliveve me, I'm working on it. Meanwhile, you can get to it via the main site so - bookmarks, people.

Forum Upgrade Coming

We are going to attempt to upgrade these Forums all the way to the latest and greatest version over the weekend of 13-14 May. We will be down for several hours, hopefully just on Saturday night.

Further bulletins as events warrant.
