Dear mods,
Hey, I don't know if it's a phpBB thing or what. But it would be awesome if the big blue Crab mon at the top of the page redirected us to the front page of the website. Can this be fixed? I know it sounds really lazy, but I like to go to the Links page and it would be quicker that way. I think it would make it easier to navigate the website, and more people would visit the front page.

I always click the Board Index link to go back to the front of the Forum. And even then, it's just to check for birthdays or see who's online, out of boredom. So it seems kinda worthless for the Crab mon to be the same link. I could be crazy, but maybe you could look at it if you get bored.

Undeniably,
the Dave

Hmmm.... not sure how easy it'll be to change the default settings for that.

I admit, it would make more sense. I just don't know how to do it, or if we can.

3 Spammers have gotten through lately. 2 in the last week. They seem to only post 4 times with links to get WoW gold, and then vanish. They post in existing threads, they don't start their own. A few of you might have seen them around.

Their posts don't last for very long, since they post when I'm on. Probably trying to avoid when people over in North America would be on to keep the posts there for a bit. But I kinda keep different hours. ;)

Just a heads up. Not sure if anyone else has dealt with them, but there's only one name currently on the ban list that I didn't put there. And that one isn't just a spammer.

Yeah... noticed that too. Thought about bringing this issue up but since its so random. I thought it'd go away and if any Admin noticed them I was hoping they'd ban the spammers ass by now.

I just added a second one...one yesterday and one today. If any of you guys know how to update the admin side of this to block these fucknuts from even creating accounts here, either do it or let me know how to do it.

I have modified the CAPTCHA requirements. Hopefully, no real people have problems trying to register as well.

That's 2 more bots that got in.

Ryushi, we've got to change the registration process somehow.
