Re: Anti-bot Inkscape question

It is in the admin control panel -- it's difficult to find stuff in there. I can change it or remove it -- I did not realise the tools had changed positions. Removing it may increase work for the moderators.

Re: forum moderating

Technically speaking once the "ban hammer" option is confirmed it redirects to the user's profile with the option of banning it again. I will take note the next time I ban someone, but I looked at the profile for a user you banned the the "Ban hammer this user" link is replaced ...

Re: forum moderating

First post approval and more advanced banning options are up.


No worries. Note the "Ban Hammer this user" link when you view a users profile. With this you can ban the user and delete all their posts in one step.

Re: can't register? or can't log in?

Apologies for my laxness with resolving this issues. My hosting had upgraded PHP and the version of phpBB I we were running was not compatible. phpBB has been upgraded which should fix all the issues. Although you will note that things look a little different now. This is how it will look until I ca...

Re: Permanently block posts containing keyword in subject li

I apologise for my lack of effort in handling and preventing spam.

I was mistaken that reported posts would be hidden--I mis-understood the setting. It would be a useful setting to have.

I have made some tweaks, so hopefully you will see less.

Re: Trialling no moderation of posts for new users

Why not but then you should grant moderation rights to more users IMHO. Too much spam for kitchen announcements for me. In a way, everyone is a moderator. If you are seeing spam, it's either because you are the first of 2 people to see it, or nobody before you bothered to report it. I didn't think ...

Trialling no moderation of posts for new users

I'm trialling not moderating posts from new users. This has been a measure to reduce the spam regular users are exposed to, but it's a significant inconvenience to new users looking for hasty answers. Expect to see spam, but when you do you can report it. You should see a set of icons at the top rig...

waste of time puting a post up on here 1. You posted in the wrong forum category to attract the attention of people who use cutters. I've moved your topic. 2.
