If you have any feedback or suggestions about the club whether be the website, Facebook, or the general running of the club post here.

Maybe you would like to see the club hat returned, or more 6mm scifi terrain for epic, whatever it may be we cant promise to deliver it but the committee will see it.

Spambot Countermeasure and Auto-Pruning in Looking for Game and For Sale / Wanted Boards

Postby sjjones » 23 Nov 2017, 10:35

A couple of updates.

Spambot Heretics
It seems that the reCaptur - while initially successful in preventing Spambots has now failed given the recent spam posts (these heretics have since been purged!) In light of this, new registrations now use a Q&A challenge to prove they are human. The forum software itself will require updating likely early next year, so will be holding off from anything too technical until then. We can see how this works.

Auto-Pruning of "For Sale / Wanted" and "Looking for a Game" boards
Following suggestions from some members - which make a lot of sense given the nature of these boards in particular, the forum has been set to auto-prune both of these boards. It will remove any topic that has been inactive for at least 28 days. Announcements have been placed on each board about this too. Please continue to use them as usual - in the case of for sale / wanted - if items are still available / wanted - then either "bump" reply to the topic to keep it active or re-post it as a new topic if it gets pruned.
