I'm updating the system this website is run on. During the process, posting to the forum has to be closed. All other parts of the website should be fully operational. I expect to complete the update on Monday March 18, 2013.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience,

Marek

We have installed a new version of the website CMS. You can post to the forum again. If you encounter any problem, please let me know.

Known issues (I'm working on them):

Trail maps don't work.

Hi Marek,

Thanks for your hard work. I appreciate the enabling of the immediate post display. If you could enable the email notification system as well it would be very beneficial for all.

Hi Michele,

I will work on the site this week and I believe I'll enable e-mail notifications soon, however new trail maps is the top priority now.

Thank you for your patience,

Marek

Hi Marek, I also appreciate the immediate posts, but shouldn't you install some kind of security threshold to avoid automatic spam posts? I'm thinking about the "difficult-to-read letters" one has to rewrite to make sure the person posting is in fact a living person, and not an automatic crawler installing spams? Other solution would be to have the system with immediate posts closed for first-time posters, so only the people whose posts you've previously approved might post again? If not, you'll wake up to 10 new VIAGRA-posts every morning!

Hi Joanna,

The new system has a better antispam module and I hope we won't have to fight spam any more. So far it works great -- no spambot registered today, while in the old system about 10 spambots have been registering every hour :-)

I spotted lots of spam posts from Candor786 and removed them.

Is it possible to block contributors?
