Stand By Gents!

You all may see some weird things happen on the various Network pages as I stumble through learning how to manage this website. I apologize in advance if you start seeing things you cannot believe!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Yes but he'll be involved helping me out as much as I need it. A combination of things impacted Gabe and he felt he had to give it up so the site would get the attention it deserves. I'll try my best but it's going to take a while to figure everything out. Wish me luck!

These phpBB forums are pretty straight forward to operate, but if you need any help I built my two websites and maintain them myself.

Thanks Curt. I'll definitely keep you in mind. The problem isn't really the forum. I think I have a pretty good handle on that since I run one of my own. It's the rest of the database for the Network that I'll be struggling with. It includes using Microsoft Access to maintain the member listing (roster). It's been a LONG time since I dealt with any database software, and even than it wasn't that intense.

OK folks. Still trying to work this out. I changed some settings a couple days ago and the board got flooded with crap. Spent a couple hours this morning undoing a crapload of phony memberships and spam posts. Hopefully it's back under control now.

OJT, got to love it. Kind of like one day you are a mortarman and the next you are a M-60 ammo humper. The next you are humping a 50 cal. machine gun barrel.

You're right about the spam Willie. I had a period of 5 days or so where I had the board set to "open registration". That wasn't a very smart move. Dozens of spam members got in quickly. I spent a couple of hours removing their automated bullshit posts and deleting them from the membership list. I missed a few of them but am removing them, and their posts, as I catch them on a daily basis. The board is now set to block automated registration and I'll be checking and establishing memberships on an individual basis now.
