Just a note to say that I'll be playing around with the forum over the next week or so. So, if something seems strange, it's because I'm messing around in the background.
There may be a couple of occasions where I temporarily close it down to allow for software updates.
On the plus side, the first change I've made is to stop the auto-moderation tool picking up members' posts when there's a link or two in it. Once you're over twenty posts, your posts will no longer be scanned for potential spam.
And, talking of spam, I've removed almost ten thousand accounts from the forum: mostly auto-spam signups. The reduced number gives a more accurate picture of the site's user base.
