This thread is intended to brag about the new changes being made in the forum to bring the forum back to its old glories. A major problem coming in the way currently is increased spam attack since past few months which made JP & Me to take some major decisions. The website has got shifted to a VPS server this month keeping in view that the traffic to this amazing forum is getting increased day by day and so is the interest of users. This posed extra burden on our old (slow) server so we have now moved to an all new server with more dedicated resources to handle more traffic smoothly.
While keeping an eye on the web-analytics report of this forum it was seen that along with the increase in new and returning visitors of website there was a gradual increase in the spammers and spam signups recently. In order to cope up with the situation we worked hard and have now made some good progress. There are some changes in forum rules:
1) Newly registered users will go into 'Newbies' usergroup in place of going into 'Registered Users' usergroup directly.
2) These 'Newbies' will be able to surf through the forum easily but they are given limited access to forum's features.
3) These new users will get promoted to Registered users having full access to all features only after they contribute to the forum in some way. More details coming soon.
