Re: New Webhost

Hi looks great! Just one question- how do you tell if there is a new post that I haven’t read yet? Previously you could see the date it was posted, but that doesn’t appear anymore on the main screen. Cheers Looks like you're probably using mobile to view the forum? I'm guessing the theme leaves tha...

Re: New Webhost

And it took slightly longer than I wanted - but SSL is now enabled on this website. That means all data you send and receive is encrypted for your protection. It also removes the annoying "Not Secure" message in your web browser.

Re: Upcoming Webhost Change - Boxing Day

Hi all - I'm attempting to undergo the migration from Boxing Day. If all goes well, it should be done in one day. However, be patient with me if it doesn't. I'll mark the board as under maintenance. If all goes to plan, next time you visit, we'll be on the new server and everything will look and act...

Re: Upcoming Webhost Change

I appreciate the thought. Once I've gone through the hosting change, I'll look at adding a Donate button of some sort. By moving to the new host, the cost for the first year drops significantly whilst getting a better service. It is a 50% discount for the first year but even without the discount wil...

Upcoming Webhost Change - Boxing Day

Hi folks, firstly, really appreciate everyone who comes here to contribute or just to lurk! It's great to have you around! Secondly, I've decided to switch webhosts and bring the site home to an Australian company and server. What that means is in the next couple of weeks, we'll be moving physical s...

Re: Spammers

Currently running version 3.2.5

Moderating is less about technology, and more about being able to click buttons responsibly. From that I mean not overreacting to posts from regulars, but hitting the spammers hard. With great power, comes great responsibility :)

Re: Spammers

Hi all, I made the decision to make it easier for people to sign up to help grow the user base. Without more people, it's hard to keep an active community. Unfortunately, it also makes it easier for spammers to get through. There is one post that should have been deleted when I deleted the user acco...

Re: What is happening with this site??

In order to make it easier for people to register, it also makes it easier for people to spam. It's a tradeoff. I have deleted and banned the user.

If you come across posts like this, there is an option to mark a post as spam. That alerts me and I can act on it quicker.

Re: Israel Folau

I used to worship him when he played for us, amazing skill and all. However, I would not want him playing for us now. Storm is an inclusive environment, and a disruptive influence is not what we want or need.

Re: StormFans.club Donations for hosting fees

I appreciate all those that have managed to assist with costs, and whilst we didn't get to half the costs, perhaps another time people will be able to help. In the meantime, if you're not able to assist financially, perhaps you can help by spreading word of the website. More members is always a good...
