Re: Next season

Not sure where he'll end up but I don't reckon he'll be at Alfreton next season if Billy Heath's still there. It's always looked an uneasy relationship and on Saturday he subbed Styche at half-time (wasn't injured) on a day Alfreton lost 7-0 at home. I don't think Styche was too impressed and the f...

Can't we switch to Xenforo or is that too costly?
Not sure the forum gets enough traffic these days to justify a paid option. I'm waiting on some API keys to install a couple of extensions that will give us the edge (for a few minutes, probably)

Forum upgrade

As you're probably noticing, I've upgraded the forum to 3.2 to try and help with the spam problem. This has unfortunately led to the loss of the "Uncovered" theming around the edges. I'll be working to restore that as soon as I can. If you have any issues with the forum, post in here, or drop me a p...

Re: New forum - testers wanted

Thanks. Since my slightly anger-fuelled post (although compared to some on here recently, regarding more on-field affairs....) earlier, I've softened a bit to the idea of upgrading phpBB to the newest available version. I'll just have to rebuild the theme again. We'll see how it goes.

New forum - testers wanted

Hi, Officially bored of removing spammers from here, and I'm not sure updating phpBB is the answer - our install is a little broken under the hood so I'd risk knocking the forum offline entirely. So, with that in mind, I'm going to bring forward the install of a replacement forum. I might try and ge...

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

Our squad is far too thin and Tommy without a doubt needs another striker urgently.Another midfielder with some physical presence and a keeper to put some pressure on Maddison are no brainers, and obviously these need to be loan signings.Ridiculous scoreline tonight, but missed chances and defensiv...

Afternoon all, Just a quick note to apologise for the increase in spam on here lately - and for anyone who's been getting the screen telling them they're blocked for spam - innocent victims of the crossfire I'm currently involved in. Spambots seem to have dialled up across the whole internet - a lot...

Received a few PMs about users being blacklisted when they try to post - the forum was attacked by a large amount of spam a few weeks back so I turned everything up to 11 to try and stop them - seems a few of you got caught up in the crossfire, apologies for that. Have turned everything back down to...

There we go, deleted and banned all those accounts. They were all registered in 2015, by the way - before we really started ramping up the efforts to stop them signing up. Just sat there. I've half a mind to purge old accounts if I can find something in the admin panel to do that, actually... Looks...
