Unfortunately, Frothers anti-spam measures at present consists of me, Seb & Pete and a rather tatty broom to sweep it under the carpet. Until a proper filter is in place there's nothing else we can do but move it when we spot it. Believe you me, there's things I'd much rather be doing than moving 100+ threads each day :(

Oohhhhh... so we're waiting on the two people who can make changes to do something to a website they never visit and have no hand in? :roll:

Bugger.

Yup. Looks like we are at square one here. Pretty much the same situation as exactly one year ago. Nothing learned. The problem is not the site falling apart, or being spammed to death; but the lack of an active administrator.
Sorry for the mini-rant.

We need the Doc to sort this out.

It's a good job he's not the Doc as in Doctor Who, or the Daleks would now be our masters, or we'd all be Cybermen by the time he moved his arse :lol:

No, we need Doc to give proper access to a few qualified Frothers and then to fuck off for good so we can get Redzed back.

Quite. I have met Doc and he seems a nice enough chap but the last couple of years have been a bit bad.

Dare I add that perhaps it is time for a little shake up? I hear some of the committee haven't been on for yonks.

Brother Maynard last posted in 2005, Doc hasn't been on since July, UncE since October, DDep since the end of January.

Not sure if I've ever met Brother M but I used to really like the others, I've been out drinking with Mike and Nick on a good few occasions, usually at the Red Lion on Kingly Street, including the night we all met the Rev in person for the first time. But the last couple of years their combination of a total lack of interest in the site and disregard for the opinions of the members, combined with a complete unwillingness to pass on the reigns, has really soured my feelings towards them. I still think they are nice guys (well, Nick and Mike are nice, Mark is funny but I wouldn't describe him as nice) but to be honest I just wish they would fuck off and give the keys to Jon or Seb so something could actually be done to improve this place.

Exactly. We are right back where we were last year. I understand this place seems to be a personal little ego trip, but sometimes to save something good you have to let it go. In this case, just hand the fucking admin access over to someone who gives a shit and will invest some time in maintaining the site. There are plenty of us willing to lob in cash to pay for the place, but we need someone who is tech savvy and actually has the time and interest to do the maintenance to be given the keys to the car.
When I die I want the Arsenal players to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.
