Good news and a goodbye

The excellent alittledizzy is now one of our administrators - no longer left to deal with the mundane and routine jobs of dealing with post reports and fixing typos, she now has the wonderful job of fiddling with the ranks and changing usernames. We’ve told her that she should only change usernames ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 58: Come in my lady door

Okay, we've lost the handful of posts made over the last half an hour or so, but restored the posts from the previous few hours that were lost. Apologies to those who had posted in the last half hour.

Moderating

I'm happy for the discussion about Dan and Phil and racism to continue for now, but please remember that this forum is not the place to continue personal drama that started elsewhere. This goes for everybody.

The off topic tags are no more

We’ve removed the off topic tags. We’ve thought about this for a while, and we feel that since the proper usage of the tags was not clear to every poster, and with the tags owing their existence to nothing more than “that’s just the way it is”, their removal will be an overall improvement to the boa...

What to do if your IP has been banned

We've seen an increase in the amount of spam accounts registering lately, and as a result we've had to implement more aggressive processes to ban them before they have a chance to post. Unfortunately, this can throw up false positives and automatically ban a legitimate user attempting to register. I...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 53: another two months

I have one question that I hope is of general interest: will our avatars get restored as part of the themes? No rush, but I perhaps miss them more than the emoji--they make it so much easier to track the conversation! I'm afraid not, they're something that can't be transferred with the type of tran...

LtrllySusan is correct. Removing some of the custom features of this forum helps us minimise the possibility of issues behind the scenes, so that we can try and keep the whole migration process as smooth as possible. Issues do keep cropping up, though, which is why the migration is taking longer th...
