After the previous forums, using the now abandoned Beast Forum technology, began to suffer massive amounts of obscene spam attacks a unanimous decision was taken to replace them with up-to-date technology.
Although we didn’t do badly with the old forums (I added word filters and post censors to the ruby source code) these ones should be much easier to secure and maintain.
You will need to re-register with the new forums.
What other future developments can you hope to see? Quite a lot over the next few months. I’ve been hard at working fixing, fonting, and fudging the old Application System into the New Application System. In a strange case of the-early-bird-missing-the-worm syndrome, people have been applying before we’ve opened the system for submissions! They must be really keen to attend the “APPLICATION TEST JUDGING” event that’s being hosted at 0:00:00 on 1st January 1970.
