Forum Software Update + HTTPS + Registration Policy
« on: 13/Aug/2019 10:31:52 PM »
Dear all,

After a massive recent increase in spam attacks which kept moderators busy for hours, I've finally invested the time to install the latest forum software along with an SSL certificate. HTTPS is now mandatory, as is admin approval of new registrations. Let us hope that this will restore peace and happiness and rid us of unsolicited sex ads for good.

Cheers,
Matthias

PS: Thanks to skaman for his tireless effort and for bringing the issue to my attention.
