Re: General forum updates

One tried to register again so I've banned the account.

Other general forum updates:
- I've now added a 'news' box at the top of the page so everyone can be easily kept up to date on the latest Joanna news :happy:
- There's also a 'share this' button at the bottom of each topic now. This way people can share posts/topics on social media websites if they wish to do so. Piece of advice: this cannot be done with anything within V.I.P. as there's personal information of members in there, plus unregistered users won't be able to open these links anyway.

I've wanted to add something like that for some time now, but it took me a while to find it. I'm very pleased with it as well :happy:

I nearly didn't see the news alert due to the advert which I always overlook but now than I found it, I think it's a great way to share news! :thumb:

Re: General forum updates

Oh yes you can all see those stupid adverts of course, that's so annoying. Admins don't see those adverts for some reason. I wish there was a way we could switch those off.

Re: General forum updates

The news idea is a good one. Nice work, Philippa. :yes:

I fear that we have more spammers registering all the time, though, sadly. :doubt:

Anyone with a username that looks like someone pounded on their keyboard is pretty much guaranteed to be spam, and I've seen about a half dozen so far. How annoying. :doubt:

We can, by paying, in which case I would rather spend the money on getting a decent forum url or a back-up of all our stuff.

The news banner is a nice add though. :yes:

Yeah, I know. But I personally really dislike it if a forum doesn't allow users to change their names, that's why we do allow it here. :wink:

Oh don't get me wrong, I don't mind at all, if people change their names, it's just ME who has to remember the old name etc. and remembering names never was my strong side :lmao:

Oh, I'm really hopeless at that too. Just as long people don't change both their avatar/signature and name at the same time, we should be fine. :lol:
