Hi there :-)

My first post here and thanks to the admins for accepting me ;-)

Spam bots are a pain and they are getting more and more "clever" to get past recaptcha and other stuff... Great to see it looks like you're on top of that.

When I used to host forums like this the stuff these bots try to post is often shocking :-S

Anyway, just a quick thanks and it seems like this place would make a nice "home-from-home" for me. It's good to find a little piece of the interwebs that you can relax and chat about good stuff with even better people.

Not a complaint but the site is a little slow for me. If you need any advice on speeding things up by using stuff like PHP caching etc, PM me anytime. :-)

Regards,
Bob.

Bob,

Welcome to Ouch Too so it is running slow and treacly right now it is usually much better than this. We have a speed test link on this thread so members can check if it is their computer or isp, right now it is neither and it is just Go Daddy .com sorting its life out post weekend. Thank you for the offer of advice if you can think of anything obvious then please post the suggestion on the thread about the site being slow http://ouchtoo.org/index.php?topic=5080.0

You are right about spam bots and we do get a number coming through the joining process every week, but we combat this by having the applications process set to approve and this allows Kizzy and myself to do a quick bot search before we approve a membership. Without Kizzy's help I think there would have been bots getting through, she is a great assistant manager/mnoderator and all round star  >star<

It is good to read

It takes a bit of work but we do okay.

I found a link to Ouch Too in the BBC's old "See Hear" forum. Good idea to put the post in just before they shut it down :-)
