Well i thought this forum wasn't that active but i see a post from 1970
(wait, did the internet have forums back then?)



and on a much related note, perhaps we can promote the forum more to get more interest around here

Actually.. to get more people active with the forum and the website, you could allow people to submit their "guest articles", reviews or hacks in the forum that can be posted on the main page
just a thought..

The guest post thing is a good idea. I am not sure why the forum hasn't got more traction... It seems to have spurts of activity but is usually quite slow.

That is a strange date. I just has a look, the cobwebs are thick in that category. It is actually getting older, now it is showing 1969! Must be a PBPBB bug.

I will try to mention the forum more often on the main site to get some more traction here. The spam issue doesn't help the situation either though. About this time last year I was spending about 30 to 60 minutes every day cleaning out spam posts that were getting through. They must have been using a real person to go through the registration process since there were questions that only a real person could get through...

Now if someone wants to join they are forced to send in an email requesting a password to sign up. I hated to do it but the spam has almost gone away completely!

If it gets rid of spam, I am not complaining Wink I did notice a decrease in spam to almost 0!
