Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that the forum has been updated to the latest version of phpBB. I have been absent from the forums for several weeks, but I will begin answering any questions as I can.

There was a massive bot attack involving 150,000 posts in one of our forums. Because this was an off-topic forum, I just decided to delete all posts and start over. I added in some new spam prevention measures, and I think this should be able to stop 99% of any spam attempts from new users.

Thank you all for helping keep these forums educational!
