Here's a handy thread that allows you to see what recent changes or additions the forum has undergone by my fingers.

So here goes...

19th October - The avatar gallery is now up and running with 20 panda-spanking new avatars to choose from. More to come later Smile

31st October - Email verification for newly registered accounts has been removed, as it was causing too much fuss.

21st June - Registered the user 'Backup' and gave Admin status to it, so I can access the forum controls incase anything happens to this account...doesn't hurt to be safe.

23rd September - To combat the amount of bots that register useless accounts in the forum, any usernames with an underscore (_) or hyphen (-) will be disallowed. Hopefully this will stop every 1 in 3 bot made accounts, according to my shoddy calculations.

Usernames with the word 'viagra' in them are also banned.

25th September - Thanks to 8ilbo, the registration form has been updated to include a 'Are you human?' field, to rat out bot accounts. As a result, usernames with an underscore and hyphen are allowed again.

The default smilie pack has been replaced with a more boot_error friendly set, I hope you enjoy them Razz

14th June - Thanks to Joetheeskimo helping me out I've managed to Install a very nifty anti-bot system that will, once and for all (I hope), stop spammy posts. In boot_error's retired age, we don't want this place filling with robots.
