Hey everybody, sorry for the recent overflow of spambots. Theyve been killing our servers and trying to hack some senior members accounts which have been preventing them from logging in. We're going to be doing some site maintenance now. Sit tight, we'll be back.

upgrade complete... now we wait....

Also, thanks for the mods for helping us out the last 2 weeks when it started to get bad. I know your email inboxes are flooded with reported post emails. HOpefully this will cut this down.

That's weird that anyone would email you reporting a thread.

Well, our luck could have been much worse than a bunch of spam bots, on this wonderful Friday the 13th.

when they report the posts, it gets sent out to every mod and admin. at least for me i set it so it emails me, i might have to change that setting.

Oooh, and I just noticed some of the forum upgrades. Members list is now "Community" and gives easier access to social groups and albums. In social groups, groups can also be identified by 200x200 icons, and discussions within those social groups are no longer one big thread and are grouped into threads. Oh yeah, and albums look way cooler now.

Cool beans.

I just reported 23 posts that I do not deem fit for the community. I hope the mods take good care of my snitching.

Now please let me get back to stalking the forum for posts to report. Boy, do I love the job of "goody-five-foot-two-shoes"!

btw thank you for upgrading the forum (rayon's "mahalllloooozzz" comes to mind), glad I was out to drink during the breakdown. That would have been hard to deal with mentally.

I suffered a serious case of UU withdrawal last night. Who do I send my mental health medical bill to?

But, we have all come to love this other evil deach! Now, how are we going to cope?
