Is there anything that needs to be here that is not listed in message 1?

Hi all,

The site has been getting a lot of spam bots trying to join it and it is taking to much time to work out which membership applications are for real people and which are bits, so I have added a question option.

All new members will need to answer the following question before there application goes through.

What colour do you get if you mix blue and yellow?

The answer is green

:-)

 :-) Sometimes it is easy to tell which applications are spam bots but others it is a bit of a guessing game.I dont want to accidentially let one in and the next morning find the boards spammed with posts for get rich quick schemes and ads for viagra.

Adding the question has gone a long way to sorting the issue out. Hopefully the question will not put new people off joining.

I had a few days of tired foggness, and today I am going to try and get some archiving from Aimoo done. It is important to me that I do what I said I would and bring the old posts and threads over here, it is just taking longer than I expected  >magicfairy<

Btw I noticed that a few people are missing the little devil emoticon so I have added it  >devil< use it wisely.

Also please be aware to write out and emoticon the >,<  are >emoticon name< not <emoticon name>, it is just the way I did it when I added them.

Me too - though I'm more inclined to use this  >angel< >whistle<

It would appear that the wretched spam bots are an 'occupational hazard' with running a message board - the colour question should root them out nicely  >thumbsup<

Hi

I tried to log in but my password kept disappearing, is that because it's got 'forever' in the time slot??   Look you'll be old yourself someday.  :-)

AitchEss,

Good to see you here and  >magicfairy< your perserverance has been reward with the addition of your sea horse avatar.

I hope my assumption you would want it here is okay. I can easily take it of and add another.
