Post subject: phpBB Forum Maintenance & Issues Reply with quote

This weekend I've done several things trying to address several issues. Unfortunately, as some of you may have noticed, this resulted in the most noticable problem being receiving database errors when you are trying to log out. In fact, I would suspect this would happen to all logged out users independant of the action they're doing.

This was a result of an overenthousiastic inactive user pruning where I accidentely removed the ANONYMOUS user phpBB uses to log guests. It has been fixed and once again, I apolegize for the inconvenience.

Furthermore, I enabled CAPTCHA for user registration. However, beforehand I was already aware that there are bots that can automagically bypass that security feature. So, registrations might not be bot-free entirely, but hopefully they won't post.

Last, but not least, I had accidentely deleted the latest newspost on the MM2C frontpage, including all comments. They were restored within the hour.

Thank you for your time,

Yes, I know and I've told you twice now that the solution requires a serious change to phpBB. I wish to explore other alternatives and investigate the real source of the problem first before I implement it. It's not a high priority problem anyway.
