Forum Upgrade | New Theme | New Feature
« on: June 20, 2010, 03:53:59 AM »
Hello, I had to upgrade the forum overnight. It has a new theme.

Pretty much everything should be the same as before, however, I stripped these features:

Ability to post signatures, website in profile, messanger etc. The reason I did this is to stop spam bots from enjoying any benifit by making an account just to advertise. If they don't have that ability to spam, I hope they'll just go away.

New Feature:
You can now bookmark your favorite threads.

Hey let me know if anything is different or if there are any problems OK.

Thanks y'all

Chris

Thanks everyone!

And in case you were wondering, when the site refers to 'spiders' at the bottom where it says who is online, that means google, bing and probably spam bots are spidering the site at the moment.

Hi folks,

Is it just me that can't find it, or is the "Bookmark" feature missing?

Have faith

Hi faith;  I didn't know we had a bookmark feature here.  Don't worry though, you can use you "Bookmarks" or "Favorites" on your own browser/ toolbar.... section of your screen... it does the same thing.
