    This is a new minor announcement thread as the old one was cluttered with technical updates etc.

    The purpose of this thread is to post minor announcements as replies, as any new threads are automatically posted onto other sites such as Ogre Stronghold, Bugman's Brewery etc, and we don't want to bother them every time we have a small bit of news!

    To start off with, the first piece of news we have is that I have just opened a support section:

    http://www.vampirecounts.net/Forum-Wisdom-of-the-Master

    This is for members to post bug reports, how to's and member suggestions.

    Due to a recent number of spambots signing up, CN's antispam software has been reactivated.

    Some of you may remember earlier in the year when we were forced to take this action. The software checks all posts and deletes them if they are deemed to have spam related topic.

    However this time I have managed to amend the options, meaning it only checks the posts of New Bloods, i.e those who have less than 50 posts.

    In the event your post is removed and you feel it should not be, then please send me a PM.

    yes, it was a bot :tongue: looks like the spam bot protection isnt going as hoped ;P.

    a fun thing that they did on another forum I am on was to "hide" the forum away from the spambots, so the only place they could see to post in was this one thread. as a consequence there were all sorts of bots in contention trying to sell each other stuff. made for some quite humerous reading until the bots got around it eventually and we had to go back to blocking them

    The bots been banned - there is some new protection lined up so hopefully that will make a difference.

    Post icons have been updated, so when you go to post in most sections, you should see the option to use them.

    I have also found an updated version of the WYSIWYG editor - this will be undergoing testing on the demo site shortly.

    Though I disappeared for a while I am now back! Some RL issues I had to sort, few things getting on top of me etc. I will be working over the next week or so to get upto date.

    On a side note, I think I may have finally got a WYSIWYG editor working.

    Due to the number of spammers on the site, new anti-spam measures have now been enabled.

    For the majority of users it should not affect you.

    However, it may affect legitimate users when they first try to sign up or make posts. If you do experience any such trouble please send an email using the contact us link at the bottom of the forum page and we will be happy to assist.

    I am very pleased to announce the appointment of two new To War! moderators: Seneschal and Sunny (The Sun King).

    Both come recommended by Johnny (a high honour in itself), and I am sure they will do a great job supporting the members of CN, as it is they are already providing great advice.

    Congrats to both of you :thumbsup:

    Hey everyone,

    I just wanted to update you all in regards to my absence, especially after my short lived return earlier this year.

    I know my lack of time has been difficult for some and I can only apologise for that. Whilst I love this site dearly and have put many years into it, there is are other things that do come before it, one being my family (the missus and two daughters).

    To be blunt the last 12-18 months have been really difficult, money problems, moving, not having Internet for 3 months, and most recently moving again.

    The recent issues were caused with being effectively screwed over in my job, resulting in working six hours away from where I live and only getting home at weekends. As I hope many of you will understand, such small time at home means I have to dedicate that time to my family. Whilst away from home I have limited data, hence cannot be on the net regularly.

    Where are things now? Finally they look to be getting resolved. It looks like I have finally secured a job 15 minutes away from where I live, so after 4 more weeks (notice period) I will then be back into a normal life with no more money issues, and Internet access everyday! From that point I should be able to be on CN regularly, and fingers crossed no more issues for a good while.

    I do want to say huge thank you to the mod team and members who have worked hard in the meantime.

    I will update here again when I have more definite info.

    DoN, I can very well relate, I'm very short on time ATM as well and sadly hobby stuff suffers in the mean time. Take as much time you need with your real life, your CN-life will still be here and I for one will like you just as much when you return.! xD Can't wait.!

    The best of luck! See you soon!

    DoN! You're back (or at least, in 4 weeks!)! :happy:

    Two moves in a year must have been harsh on your life, moving house is the third most stressful thing that commonly occurs (it goes after divorce and terminal illness/death of a relative)! Great to see you have time for CN now, though!

    As well as the chat, you might want to take a peep at reviving the Legion and TVC II...but there are other things you might want to look at. It's a great big forum you've been running all these years. xD

    I will certainly look at reviving some things when I am back full time. However I won't overload myself as I have tended to do in the past, which has lead to becoming frustrated! TVC II will be a top priority.

    The other main elements will be just getting on top of properly managing the forum, regular posting and ensuring we have necessary moderator support.

    Of course the most important element will be re-commencing my plan of world perversion xD
