    Security Patch and New Theme

    Hey all,

    Just letting you all know that I will be patching the forum and installing a new theme sometime between today and tomorrow. In order to do this I'll have to temporarily disable the forum. This is just a notice letting you all know what's going on in case you see the 'forum is temporarily disabled' notice on the forum.

    cheers,
    m1ck3y

    Very interested to see what the new theme will be like. And looks like we're still getting a lot of bots signing up (they're fast!) -- will the security patch help with that at all?
    I was led astray by bad directions.

    It might. Currently I have very little security preventing spammers from signing up (it seems to be a losing battle). However, I"m taking advantage of some very clever code that audits any new users first 5 posts and automatically removes any it deems to be spam. I've been manually going through so far and it seems to have caught all of the spam and no innocent posts have been removed. I figure I really don't mind spammers signing up as long as they aren't allowed to post spam. If the situation worsens there are alternative means of dealing with spam but for now it seems to be working fine.

    I try to leave a welcoming message on every new member's page to try and encourage actual posting. So far I haven't seen any spam problems. Unless I'm blind.

    Haha yeah I thought you might get a kick out of that. Unfortunately for you, I'm probably going to change the GamerRed image for one that says Gundam Forums so enjoy it while it lasts! :P

    I'm liking the new theme. It has a balance of new and old that makes it appealing. Great job m1ck3y!
