Post subject:  SPAM and a New Forum

Hello all,

First off I'd like to apologize that you all have been assaulted by the influx of SPAM on the forum. The Moderators are doing and awesome job minimizing their impact, but it's truly a never ending battle. On that note, I'm working as quickly as possible to upgrade our forum software. The version we've been using for years now is out of date and is no longer supported. As the spammers get better at spamming, the developers have gotten better at preventing them so newer in this case, is better. I can't tell you when I'll be able to make the change, but rest assured that I'm working on it as quickly as I can. I'll provide updates as I get closer.

Thanks,
Chris

I'll throw my thanks in here also. Without the information I have received from the forum I would be much less prepared out there. THANK YOU AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK>

Sad as it is, I just had to remove some SPAM from this topic!

Quick update too; I'm close to being able to release the new forum, but I've got a test site running and it's been getting more SPAM than this forum has even though it's not live! Those darn spammers find a forum and just attack at every opportunity. I'll keep working, thanks for your patience!
