The forums have undergone a software update, and we've also made 4 changes:
  • Changed the operating URL of the forum from being based on kumoricon.com to kumoricon.org. This may cause login difficulties for some users the first time you log in. We encourage all users to just use www.kumoricon.org/forums/ from now on, as is linked from the front page. If you are logged out immediately after logging in, try manually checking your address bar to be sure you are on www.kumoricon.org/forums/ (not .com), and then logging in again. In testing, it always has worked for me the second time.
  • Created a new spam-bot prevention system. A question is asked during account registration that is unique to our forum, which humans can easily answer but spam-bots can't. Hopefully this should nearly eliminate the constant spam posts.
  • Deleted the spam-bot accounts that have been sitting in the member list.
  • Greatly increased the size of your private message folders. Enjoy. :)

Good to hear about the anti-bot improvement. The last few porn threads they made actually had pictures in them, hahahah....
