Thanks John! Sounds like it's working. Maybe the exec committee can vote you a stipend?

The RBL blocked several dozen registrations attempts overnight. One did register but didn't authenticate via the link. So, I added the captcha back for now.

I have one more thing I need to track down. The default time on the board for people not logged in is now UTC -12 but I need to make it UTC -19, the new spambot timezone. That will help some because people should change the tz, but bots won't. My brain fried last night after making the ~75 manual file edits, and reviewing them a couple times to figure out how it does the timezone stuff. I learned more about the back end operations of phpbb3 last night than I ever wanted to.

And somewhere in all of my items last night the picture at the top of the forum got reverted. I send WIllie a note offline to re-implement that.

Ditto, John. We couldn't have gotten the forums up and working so well without all you have put in. It is very much appreciated.

I think we made the spambots mad. :twisted: We have 30 pages of blocked entries from the new block method. That's 1500 blocks. Over the last couple hours it has been blocking about 5/minute.

Thanks everyone.

I think emails from the board are working now. I am getting msgs when I subscribe to a thread, and notifications of PM's.

Are there any situations where someone is not getting an email where they are expecting on?
