  • Oh, and new non-shit-tacular theme based on bootstrap.
  • This is the whitest thing I've seen since Kirk Cameron was a teenage ladies man with a heart of gold, a stay-at-home father, and a best friend named Boner.
  • It's glorious.
  • Also, I don't know how to quote previous posts...
  • did you have extra time on your hands?
  • Let's see if it slows down the spam applicants at all.
  • @jennifer I've been lurking a lot lately and noticed how out of date the software was so figured I should update it.
  • @Zed Doesn't look like it, I think some additional captcha plugins might be in order

    Quotes!
  • Yeah that would be good, I'm probably deleting 300-500 applicants daily.  If we could even have some way to automatically block them from even submitting an application of they use/omit a certain string of characters... we could probably screen out 95%+ of them.
  • this tagging is freaky deaky!
  • This is the best I have ever seen this forum.  I am taking my pants of in celebration now.
  • Wtf don't we just start from fucking scratch.
  • Well, it is quite a bit better on my laptop. Thank you for your effort in cleaning up the forum. :)

    It looks nicer. Can we still edit?

    Zed, I didn't know the spam problem was so bad here. How much effort can a dozen people be worth for a spammer?

    There's an edit button right next to the quote link, top right of each post.

    Re: spammers.  I can't help but think that they register bot account to post links to sites that will get clicked on by other bots.

    PS: It appears the change has had some effect already, I only see 21 applicants in the queue when there would usually be over a hundred by now. (perhaps someone else already killed a large batch this morning.
  • I killed 2

     

    I'm taking a break now.

  • I think there is a setting that controls how long the OP has to edit their post, right now I believe it's set to 1-hour so you better get your shit correct the first time!
  • Wtf don't we just start from fucking scratch.

    As you might have guessed I've thought about this a lot.

    Echo chamber indeed!

  • Thanks for changing the IP away from whatever porn/terrorist site it was associated with that caused my company to block it.  There are virtually no sites that have blocked from me in the past so whatever it was associated with must have been pretty bad.

    No problem. There were four or five other sites on that IP that had sent a TON of spam.

    I was just tinkering with the site a bit, and tried to register a new account.  I entered a new email address, username, password, agreed to the TOS and clicked submit.   The page* just hangs on a blank screen, it doesn't go anywhere.

    *https://www.npboards.com/entry/register


    Then when I tried logging back in and tested the "I forgot my password" function (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) I received an error message that said "Could not instantiate mail function."  Whatever that means.

    PS: Captcha audio is freaky sounding.
  • I'm not in Kansas anymore....well this is something new?  Everyone like it better?
  • Theme updated...
