  1. This has been reported before, and after some investigation, I believe I have figured it out. The reason you're receiving this "spam" is because you're subscribed to either a thread or a forum category that the spammers are targeting in the forum. The forum software has NOT been compromised, nor are the spammers even targeting you individually, it's just that the spam is being posted in the forum(s) and the forum software is simply doing what it was design (and configured by you) to do - which is to send a digest of whatever's been posted in the forum or category. Does this make sense?

    Unread Content Link Slow to Load

    Correction: it appears that a background task (the queue) has been locked. I've removed the lock and am now running the task. If it locks up again, I'll investigate further and get back to everyone. Thanks for noting the issue.

    Unread Content Link Slow to Load

    Background indexing could have been a temporary issue, but I'm not see a huge slowdown on my end at this point.
  4. It was an issue with a theme template! The problem has been resolved. You may need to clear your browser cache to see the fix. Cheers!
  5. It looks like a recent upgrade messed up the quoting function. It still works, just select the text and wait a second, a black popup will appear: However, that's not idea, and I will look into why this is happening. Thanks!
  6. I plan on upgrading PHP on the hosting account which MLW forums is located later tonight. I don't expect any downtime, but if there is, it will only be for a few moments. If you encounter any issues or errors, post a note in the support forums (if possible), send me a PM, or email me at: greg@mapleleafweb.com. Thanks!
  7. Can you be more specific?
  8. It appears the extension quit working when I recently upgraded the forum software. I will see what I can do to get this fixed, no guarantees...
  9. Greg, I strongly disagree with you.

    Activating SSL in the Forums

    The activation of SSL is complete! Sorry for the delay, but there were a few hiccups that required a few config changes before it would work 100% of the time. You will no longer get the "insecure website" warnings in your browser every time you log in now. Thanks!
  11. I will be activated SSL in the forums today. This just means that information will be encrypted between your browser and the server. This may cause some issues, so if you encounter any issues, please post the issue in the support section of the forums. Thanks!
  12. I agree, it happens. We often won't remove a blatant cross-post if it garners a lot of postings and attention before we have time to ask the original poster to repost - no point in killing good discussion. However, that's fairly rare, in most cases members who register only to post one unoriginal posting often don't put much effort into the actual posting, which means that the thread doesn't attract much discussion.
  13. Not really, this rule is targeted at people who are blindly posting to multiple forums with little regard to starting discussion - they're usually promoting themselves or something else. It was a standard rule used back in the Usenet days: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossposting This rule is rarely cited, so I'm not sure why it's being brought up no.

    How to get rid of Norton?

    Norton isn't great, but it's better than not using a antivirus/firewall at all. Here is a related forum post: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/how-do-you-get-rid-safe-search-browser Invest in a Mac or run Linux, and you'll have much fewer problems with security!
