Anti-spam changes to the board - PLEASE READ

Postby andy_b » 6th Jul 07, 11:20

Hi everybody,

In order to try and curb the amount of spam we've been getting, I've changed the forum slightly to use a service called bbProtection.net, which checks all new user registrations, and all posts to the forum, and determines if they are spam or not.

As this sends data off to another third party service, the new user registration screen has been changed to show an updated data-protection statement. For those of you who already have accounts here, you won't have seen that, so here it is (new bit in bold):
While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

This forum uses the bbProtection anti-spam service to protect itself against spammers. You agree that, upon registering on this board and making a post, your profile data (not your password) will be sent to the bbProtection server for validation. bbProtection does not store this data and does not sell this data to third parties.

This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

By clicking Register below you agree to be bound by these conditions.

If you don't agree to these updated terms, then of course you have the right to not use this forum, but I do hope you all are happy with this update.

As the service is relatively new, it is possible that some posts may be incorrectly marked as spam (and it will tell you if your post is marked as spam when you post it). If this happens to you, and you're not posting spam ;), then PM me and I'll see what I can do.

Ta muchly!
