RE: 7/6 -- Site update completed
Glad to see many have benefited from the upgrade.

I find having things in working order to be very satisfying. I was ready to abandon this forum when the site was upgraded because I wasn't sure it was fixable.

Now that won't be necessary. The paid forum I have been considering just came out with an importer that works with this forum software. So if I later decide to make the change, the content and member data will be transferable.

Since the update was completed, I have opened registration twice. Thus far, no spambot registrations have been made. I think this is because the updated forum software includes a box on the registration form that the bots can see but most people won't discover. If that form is not left blank, the registration is automatically deleted.

RE: 7/6 -- Site update completed
Today, we had our first two registrations since the site update.

I was starting to be concerned that the function wasn't working.

One of the registrations was legitimate, the other was questionable.

It did not provide a Haley-related answer to a screening question. The email address was music related but listed on an anti-spam site as being from Bangladesh. I think it might have been a poor/unsophisticated spammer who registered by hand.

With that, I'm ready to open HaleyFans to automated registrations (currently I manually approve each registration and there may be some delay before I see them).

So, keep an eye out for suspicious activity from new registrants.

Well, that sucked.

Automated registration has been disabled for the night.

RE: 7/6 -- Site update completed
I've noticed the site update apparently changed the URLs of old pages on HaleyFans -- I sometimes search Google for the site name and a topic to quickly find it. Now when I click on a page returned in the search results on Google, I land on a default page of forum topics instead of the relevant page. It's probably just a matter of time before Google re-indexes the site.
