Forum Upgrade - Some downtime may occur


Recommended Posts

  • Forum Admin

An important upgrade is going to be made to the forums shortly. I do not have an ETA on when the upgrade will occur, but it should happen in the next 24 hours.

I will give warning when the upgrade happens, but please be patient if there is some downtime.

How will you give warnings? Mass mail to everyone's inbox?

I will post a notice in the forums, I will attempt to give at least one hour warning.

Thanks

Yes, the board has been getting a lot of spam again lately. I imagine as soon as the software is updated, spammers figure their way around it. Must make for a lot of work for the admin - so the work in that regard is much appreciated!

How on Earth do spammers get even the minimum level of appreciation one presumes they need to make their efforts worth the trouble let alone worth paying for?

It's like someone figuring out how to make money trolling on internet forums. How do you that?

Some computer-savvy person wrote about this a while back. I think the gist of it was that they don't even need people to click on their links... just the fact that their links exist on the forums is valuable to them, because when the search engine webcrawlers find their links, it boosts their search engine rankings. Something like that, at least.
