  • Re: Forum Board Updates

    Dear all...

    Thanks for the commentary.

    I think ombugge is quite right in his post number 104 above.

    Yes, there is a whole lot of sign up's with member names such as hewfoøhwo, ahifhdufh, and ahdehfnciwdfkeor ..... that is, until they are deleted.
    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

      I think you do a grand job of keeping spammers at bay, in my memory i think i can only recall one or two spammers that actually got far enough to post. Your hard work certainly pays off Captain.
      Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

        Thank you very much Sir!

        I take a lot of pride in keeping it polite, and spam-free.... it's a whole lot of work, and I might not be successful all the time, but that is my aim.

          Dear friends and members,

          A number of bugs have been identified in the past week - and a lot of effort and work has been put into eliminating these.

          I know there is nobody here that truly appreciates and understands all the work I have to put into maintaining this forum, even in the background, but it had to be done.

          Within the next few days you will all see a brand new forum take shape here... an upgrade from the current version to version 5.0 will be introduced.

          I know there will be certain members here that is going to scold me for this upgrade, and that will hate the upgrade, but it has been necessary for the safety of the forum, and for the stability as well.

          The upgrade did not come cheap - and I have personally laid out nearly 460US$ on this new upgrade. Running a forum based on a a handful smaller donations every second year is never going to be fruitful, but at least, the safety will be maintained.

          Please accept my most sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
          With kind regards,

          Jan-Olav Storli

              Just to clarify - the change is not massive, but I honestly think that there will be an easier lay-out than now.

              The familiar colors of the board will be adjusted as I get into the new control panel.

              Cleaner, friendlier .... and finally, the FB / Twitter-integration will hopefully work too.

              One of the biggest bugs have been "new members sign up".... there is SUDDENLY 35.600 new registrations to check and approve....!!!

              With 4-5 minutes to check each one - that will be ..... about the rest of my life to check them out...... I think I'll jump off the bridge instead.
              With kind regards,

                    Thank you very much for the work that you put into running this forum. Your efforts are truly appreciated.
                    Upgrading is essential, since every system has it's own built in flaws. Based on previous experiences, one usually gets used to new layouts pretty fast, especially if they're more modern and easy. I guess that many of us are checking in using different mobile devices, and that could actually cause some headache since every one of them are displaying pages a bit differently.
                    Looking forward to the careful evolution.

                      You’ll have got an e-mail, but just to say here that I truly do appreciate and understand the enormous amount of effort and work you put in.

                        Jan-Olav, don't worry about us.

                        Of course i was a little bit shocked, when i managed to get WiFi on a remote campsite in Scotland to realise that the forum was closed down. But what has to be done, must be done and it will always be the wrong moment for some. We will get used to a new look and new functions, for sure it will then be easier for our FB posters to copy in. Please continue to publish your account list as you have done in the past, this gives a clearer picture for those who want to contribute, you know there are some.

                        And as the others stated, delegate some of the work to be done to those who committed to help.

                        You are doing a great job, maybe you will feel even happier as teamplayer.
