Sometime in the near future I may rollout some new designs for the site.  I'll post examples beforehand so everyone can vote.

But before I can do that, I'm going to do a lot of trimming in the forum.  I've merged the INTRODUCE YOURSELF and POST YOUR GAMERTAG sections to make the whole thing more streamlined.  I'll be doing similar things as time allows.

In case you're worried, I will not be deleting anything.  Out-of-place threads will be moved.  Similar threads will be merged.  Old irrelevant threads will be locked.  But nothing will be deleted.

So if you can't find a certain topic, please use the search button.  If you still can't find what you're looking for, feel free to PM me and I'll link you in the right direction.

There seems to be some issues with the forum's "permission" settings.  I am currently working out the kinks.  So if anyone experiences any problems (like not being able to post), don't be alarmed.  It's only temporary.

If a problem lasts longer than a few hours, post here.  If you're unable to post, you can PM me or send an email to webmaster@360fahrenheit.com.

Nothing seems to be broken so far, so I'm going to leave it alone for now.  There are still some security concerns I need to remedy (casino sites anyone?).  I have some ideas, but in fear of breaking something I'll wait until later tonight to test my theories.

That is one great advantage to our time differences.  I'm still awake while most of the site's traffic is in bed.   ;)

watch out spammers, I've got my eye on you...

Speaking of which, I'd like everyone to know that I'm aware of the spam accounts that are in our Members List.

Over the past week I've been testing new ways to tighten our security, while still opening our site to new members.  It's a tricky thing, but I think I've finally found a good balance.

Spam "bots" will likely no longer be a problem, but human spammers are still a possible annoyance.  The only real answer to human spammers is manipulating IP / Domain filters, and of course time.  So keep reporting those spam posts if you see any.   8)

I will be sending a 'newsletter' of sorts to members that haven't posted, or haven't posted in a long time.  But before I do that, there are more immediate site maintenance tasks that I need to focus on.
