It is my pleasure to inform everyone that we have performed a series of upgrades, specifically geared towards security, on our forum software. We hope our spam will be significantly reduced in the foreseeable future.

On another note, we also did include a http://devnetwork.net -> http://forums.devnetwork.net 301 redirection for those of you who were having issues with double log in.

On another note, we have disabled all themes except for prosilver, in lieu of maintaining up to date forum software and all our modifications for the future. It is simply unmaintainable performing forum upgrades with mods across 5 different themes, so we have decided to stick with prosilver. We only had about 80 users in total not using this theme, so if you are one of those 80 users, our sincere apologies.

EDIT | We will be restoring the subsilver2 theme soon

Please let us know if you come across any bugs.

Yours truly,
The mod team

It appears smilies and avatars are not showing up in all browsers, and will soon be fixed.

Thanks.

EDIT | FIXED!

Excellent. Why are we only using the subdomain forums? Why not just use devnetwork.net?

So far not a simple spam post has gotten through. We have just implemented additional upgrades to attempt to reduce/eliminate spam accounts in general from being created, and it seems to be working quite well.

We will be performing some further upgrades this afternoon to complete the process, so there may be an half an hour of downtime, but I doubt it.

The old skin dissapeared, and I was so addicted to it ;) Any chance to get it back?

Okay, we will be adding back our original subsilver theme back within a day or two, so stay tuned.

I personally liked the one that was gray (don't remember the name now). My only problem with it was that it was fixed-width...

I'm glad about the upgrades. I noticed you installed a "quick reply" button too. Like it. :drunk:

SELECT * FROM `phpbb_users` WHERE user_style > 1 AND user_lastvisit > UNIX_TIMESTAMP(NOW()) - (60 * 60 * 24 * 30) AND user_posts > 25
> 24

If someone wants to step up and maintain their favorite theme, then by all means we will be more than happy to oblige. However, the mod team I think are only willing to maintain 2 themes at the moment.

Which themes did you guys prefer?

For those of you that meet our minimum post requirement to avoid captchas, your themes will be restored in a few minutes. This is possible since those templates that do not implement the additional security checks do not require the updated changes (yet!).

We will be porting the template over within the next day or two, at which point we will make the template selection available again.
