Hello,

We will be making a significant upgrade to the forum software later this week.

We are aware that some users may have received spam private messages, and this new upgrade will prevent this kind of thing in the future.

The new forum will also allow you to "ignore" users whose posts you don't want to see. I'm sure that will get a lot of use... ;)

In the meantime, for the sake of safety, please back up any private messages you wish to save.

Please also note that occasionally account passwords may not transfer properly. In the event that you try to log in and your password is not accepted, please use the "Forgot My Password" feature on the login screen. You will need a valid email address for this feature to work - so please ensure your email address is updated in your user profile.

Music Is The best!

Oh Blessed Relief! I bow to you Mikey! 8) I will gladly start all over again as Sabrina IV if that is necessary.

Is there any way to set it so that forum users won't try to abuse the feature by ignoring posters other than spammers?

JPD, you are the sad epitome of a humorless dope who pretends to have a sense of humor in a vain attempt to excuse actual abuse, and then claims actual humor as abuse. Get a life.

I must be lucky in that I never received a single spam PM in the entire time that I've been here. Ever.

No - all usernames will be intact.

This won't be anything like the previous forum upgrade when the site was re-designed. That was a long-obsolete piece of forum software that we were barely able to shoe-horn into the new system.

However: please ensure that your user account is updated with a working email address so that if there are password issues, you can easily reset yours. This is very important.
