March 2014 Forum Back Online

Postby Paul » Thu Mar 20, 2014 10:42 am

The Forum has been out of action for a considerable time due to spammers posting their wares which had the effect of taking the website's database over its data limit and so automatically disabling the Forum. I couldn't even access it via the admin panel so I had to find and use a more roundabout way of deleting all the nuisance posts. It has taken many, many hours but I have finally managed to delete all the spam posts so the Forum is operational again. I have also updated its engine and tweaked the spam posting countermeasures so hopefully there won't be the same problem in the future.
