Advertising clothes and accessories all over the Knightmare forum... with "veryvery" in its username?

This bot doesn't happen to speak with a Brummie accent, does it?

I can just picture him asking a certain Technosorcerer for some help in circumventing spam filters...

*pushes through all the horrible spam*
It seems that a powerful form of technosorcery has breached our walls! It's made 512 posts already! Is there no end to this madness?! 8-o 8-o 8-o

There were defintiely a couple of unwanted manifestations on here a few days ago. Hopefully a DISMISS spell and a permanent ban will prevent such reoccurrances from happening in the near future.

If you're not already aware of the problem, I've been getting 'HTTP 500 Internal Server Error' when posting to the forum since last night. It still posts successfully but you may not realise it's done so, and if you click Refresh, you end up posting multiple times.

Thanks for the warning. It is being investigated.

Okay, this problem should hopefully now be fixed.

Must say I like the updated website. Good to see that you can view new posts more easily. Keep up the good work!

Thanks. Though actually, the change was mostly as part of an upgrade to try and help destroy the spammers.

Personally, I miss the helmets :(

I too miss the helmets. The new design puts me off a little. But if it was a necessary upgrade, guess I can't reapply complain (too much...).

Is there any way you can get rid of that top bar with the "view new posts," etc., tabs? It's really annoying!

Yes. But I quite like it and it seems popular, so I will leave it for now.

Is it possible for links to be a different colour to regular text, like they were before? They are somewhat hard to spot at the moment.

I've started to underline the links in my posts (here's an example). Hopefully this can work as a useful interim measure.
