Site Improvements Thread

August 14, 2010 - added "Anti Spam" mod. Because of the growing sophistication of spam bots, they are getting harder and harder to block at registration. This mod prevents newbies (new members with fewer than 10 posts) from being able to add hyperlinks to their posts. Once you hit 10 posts, you'll be able to add links as normal to your posts. If links are truly needed by real members who are still newbies, please contact me and I'll manually upgrade your account to regular member. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it's a small price to pay to keep our forum safe and (relatively) spam-free.

Please let me know if you have more than 10 posts but are having problems adding links.

Thanks guys!

Sept 20, 2010: Added mod that prevents new users (with less than 5 posts) from being able to have images or links in their signature. This should help curb the spam accounts that were adding spam links to their sigs. If you have more than 5 posts, you can add links normally to your signatures (still subject to spam rules though).

Jan 12, 2011: Added Mod that automatically sends you directly to a moved thread instead of to a page telling you the new URL.

Feb 11: 2011: When a thread has 60 or fewer posts (3 pages), there will now be an "All" option next to the page numbers to see all posts in that thread at once.

April 6, 2011: Added tons of smileys. Brought the entire acadiaforum.net smiley database over for you guys. To use, go to the main "reply" page and there should now be about 20 smileys across the top and a "More" link that opens a popup that has another 60 or so in there.

Enjoy!
