    Excuse my ignorance. What is it and what do I do with it?

    As far as spam goes, it will be a problem to be dealt with no matter how the forum registration is setup. If you see it, please report it, and we will swiftly handle it.

    We never used to get 'spam'.

    Bill was fastidious about deleting it and blocking their IPs/emails. We will continue to do so.

    Spam - Oh we got spam - but I dealt with it a little differently than Nathan - He is a much more qualified forum manager than I ever was or will be - there's usually many ways of dealing with a problem - mine was using a sledge hammer to kill a flea - with Nathan's finesse it will be dealt with efficiently and expeditiously.

    No matter how spam is deleted there's always someone out there spending a lot of time trying to get around everything - and they all get found out sooner or later.

    Takes time that could be used elsewhere.

    But as Nathan has already said - if you see it, please report it.

    I'm becoming somewhat frustrated with the New Posts system.

    I find that as soon as I''ve either read them or replied they then disappear and it is down to my failing memory to recall where they reside.

    On the old forum the New Posts section enabled us to see chronologically all previous posts regardless of whether or not they had been viewed.

    This may well be an error on my part and if so please advise, if not is it possible to modify the New Posts page at all?

    I'm currently trying to find a recent N-1 thread I viewed yesterday and for the life of me I can't locate it.

    Best,
    Steve

    I did find the New Posts a better system. I too can't find my recent posts sometimes !

    Thanks Alan, it took me a while to find that. Not what you'd call user/luddite friendly :-/

    I'll see if I can make the color of that stand out more.

    It is very encouraging to see a month on month increase in activity since last September.

    It does kinda figure, doesn't it? temperature dependent, with some extra posts during the holiday weeks.
