    Welcome back to the forums. The following changes have been made:
    • The various rules threads for the forum have been consolidated into one global rules thread that appears as an annoucement at the top of all forums. This replaces the various rules threads that used to exist, and as it's name suggest, acts as the one main rules section for the forum. You can for example see it here - http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-beg...uncements.html
    • Chatbox Rules have been implemented. They can be viewed by clicking this button in the chatbox > < or clicking this link.
    • New Users are now placed into a 24 hour holding usergroup, in which their actions are limited. They can only post in the beginners forums, which will greatly cut down on SPAM and duplicate threads. After 24 hours as a member, they are automatically transferred to the normal registered users group and can do everything all current members can do.
    • In addition to this new users are sent a private message detailing the rules when they activate their account, and it will appear as a pop up message. Along with the new global rules annoucement, the message they recieve in the email and the message next to the new thread button, there is NO excuse for not reading them. If people still ignore the rules they will be temporarily banned, period.
    • The following users have been deleted:
    - Permanent banned users with less than 10 posts. This mostly covers spambots and dual accounts.
    - Permanent banned users with no hope of ever being unbanned. This covers the rest of the spammers and dual accounts, and some persistent posters who'll never be allowed back for whatever reason. Done manually.
    - Registered Users who have not logged in for 365 days or AND have zero posts. The vast majority of these are people who signed up and never visited again after the first day, or people who never activated their accounts.

    In total this removed well over 100,000 users, which should result in faster forum use.
    • Removed any threads with no post since December 31st 2005. This may affect post count for those of you that posted in 2005.
    • Rearranged forums slightly. Most of the computer section has been merged down to three simple categories, Windows, Mac and Linux. Some others have changed or been moved.
    • Several other small modifications to help clean the site up and/or improve performance.
    That is all for today. There are a fair few things to do still, but they can be done with the forum open, so i'll do them whenever I get time.

    PLEASE let me know if there any problems with posting/searching/viewing/anything, as I made a lot of changes in regards to user groups, permissions etc including moving all 85,000 registered posters from one group to another, so some things may have gone slightly amiss. Hopefully all is ok though.

    That isn't a problem, that was by design.

    Just an FYI, changes still to do whilst the forum is open:

    - Add proper FAQ entries.
    - Sort guides section.
    - Update links in section on left side of forum.

    You can now read the welcome PM with 0 posts, you still need posts to send them and 10 to see the chatbox. That was the only way I could implement the welcome PM and get it to work.

    a bug?

    when I press "New Posts" I get a box full of text and under the box I see the forums like I should, but there is no titles or any text... just shows members who posted?... um is this still being worked on or am I too high?
