Well, there hasn't been a lot of activity.
I think a lot of folk now use Facebook and the likes.
The new album should have created more discussion than we've seen of late.

I guess so... And using facebook and the forum is still possible... Anyway... Still wish that many of the members will come back here :wink:

Hi All - real person here. Met Moya with Crannua, and attended Leo's 50th. Moya was so great.

Number one priority should be to delete all the spam here and restrict registration by checking IP address for past spammers. Is there a team of admins to tackle this?

[edit] After reviewing some of the spam, it sure seems likely computer generated, likely for some other nefarious purpose. It needs to be locked out.

Hi Peter Pan - sorry, totally my bad. As of this post I've taken the board down to get rid of the spam but need to work with Moya's management to determine whether this board is still feasible as there is very little activity here now :(

Whoo hoo! Thanks for cleaning it all up! Looks great. Please keep the forum going, I'm sure there will be things to discuss. Clannad even performing again! Count me in if any help is needed.

Absolutely!

I also took the opportunity to remove all the zero-post members, many of which date back a good few years. Many of them looked spammy, but I also figure that if someone registers and does not post within a couple of weeks, they're probably never going to (or have registered purely to lurk in any areas of the forum not open to general lurkers).
