Yes, An Admin Blog, You Did See Correctly After All....

Posted by wimg , in Board Talk 19 February 2011 · 88 views

Some of you may remember we actually were down for about 14 hours on January 8 or thereabouts. That was all necessary in order to make sure we could upgrade to the latest version of the entire software suite Invision provides for boards like our own Fountain Pen Network.

One of the first benefits we got as a result is a very good Invision Community spam filter. And we got it just in time, too. On January 15 the internet was hit with a new deluge of spammers, and we certainly did and do get our share. The number of spammers increased very sharply from about 8-10 per day, to an average of over 120 a day! Fortunately we now get actually fewer who manage to get through than before we had the spam filter, so we uttered a big sigh of relief when we saw this filter in action :D.

The great cleanup and reinstall also means that once we are familiar with some of the parts of the system, we will add an enhancement, and maybe even two, to the possibilities the board, and hence this site, has to offer, with a view to propel the Fountain Pen Network nicely and squarely into the modern age this new decade is promising us. :D We may even convince a few young newbies to come and join us that way, who knows :D.

Anyway, as you can see, the admin blog is the first of some of the ideas we had. We are currently inventing stuff as we go, so there may be many more ideas which pop up and which may also disappear again, who knows.

In the mean time, we do think this is a nicer way for communication between admins and members than the News forum, so personally, I reckon this may well be an option that will stay.

Besides adding this blog, we also upgraded the system software, with an upgrade for better security, and there also is an upgrade for the iPhone and iPad App, which can be gotten at the Apple AppStore, for free: iPhone + iPad App for IP.Board.

I do hope you will all enjoy these new developments.

Warm regards,
Wim

aka the Mad Dutchman :D
