phpBB Upgrade 3.08

Postby willy_1977 » 04 Jan 2011 14:03

Ok, looks like the spammers have found a way in to version 3.07 sp1 so it has come time again to look at an upgrade, I'll test this out over the next few days and will get back with a date that it will take place.

Just means we may need to be more active on the spam blasting front until I get us upgraded again.

Cheers.

Looking at the moderator logs from today (wtf!) they (you've) been doing a sterling job, but it looks pretty urgent that we get upgraded so I'll look at taking the forum down in an hour (maybe 2hrs) time.

I am then going to set the following up:-

newly registered users will drop into a newly registered users group, they will have limited privileges to the forum - thereby the two things together the upgrade and the nursery period will reduce the spam bots.

Ok furthermore I'll hopefully add on a post count mod which will allow further rules to be added to hopefully stop spam...
