    Yes sometimes I get a chuckle out of your folk's post

    EDIT: Ok tonight I'm going to remove every thing but the bare bones forum stuff. So for a little while at least BT is going to look quite plain

    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    I turned off new registrations for a little while to prevent new spammers from joining. I deeply apologize to any real persons that need to register. If you need to register an account send an email to btsysop@gmail.com with:

    Name you want to use (send 3 in case one or two are in use)
    An email address I can reply to

    So far the "CMS" portion is clean (the "home" page). Tomorrow I'm going to enable the blogs and give it a couple of days. If the blogs are clean the next in line is the thanks button, followed by spam-o-matic, and others. Assuming the ones that get turned on are clean.

    I think having the "Thanks Button" back will be great, I believe that has been missed. Personally I found myself very much wanting to use it this last week, and am impatiently waiting its return. 😁

    Mike, thanks for your time in troubleshooting and the resolution of this. 😃

    Cool

    ((((((Mike)))))) ~

    Reminds me of the movie, Poltergeist ~ "This house is clean." You're performing a spammer-cism!!

    It makes me happy to see BT slowly returning to its former self. I've missed the skins. And the Thanks button!

    Thank you, Mike, for all of your hard work to keep us clean!



    Love & Light,

    Next up is spamo and the re-enabling of registration. Hopefully Tues evening.

    EDITED TO ADD: The word censor was neutered today and only has a half dozen words being filtered out now.
