The forum was just updated to the latest phpBB version.
Thai language was added while Norwegian Bokmal was removed (no current translation available).
Users with Brazilian Portuguese as language need to re-set the language in their user panel because phpBB did a change in the ISO naming convention.

I'll look into a better captcha solution in order to fight those spam bots more effectively.

If you notice any problems with the forum since the update, post them here.

Spam has gotten worse since the last update.

It indeed has, sorry guys. we are fighting the spammers with our hands bound.

You can help us out by emailing Florian at webmaster@starbike.com and ask him to install the capcha that is needed. Also ask him to give me the full administrative rights. at this moment they are letting us out to dry.

I'm sorry for you guys. Please send the email. Maybe they will find out how annoying spammers are when he gets all the emails asking this in his inbox.

Thanks!

Good,

Now, lets talk about full administrative rights for me. I had them with the last phpbb version. Where are they now? You have shown that you can not give WW the attention it needs. Time to share things again.

Thanks in advance,

Frank

I've sent you an e-mail about the rights, Frank.

Regarding ReCaptcha:
I've installed it on 6:42 pm plus enabled the DNSBL feature (which caused many false positives in the past when it was enabled) but I already see at least one successful spambot registration since that time, so we'll have to look into other captcha systems available as plugin for phpBB. Suggestions are welcome.

After some research a Q&A captcha still seems to be the most effective solution, so the captcha is now a question which needs to be answered.

It seems that the spammers have a harder time to reach us right now. Let's all hope that it stays that way as we all disliked the amount of sh!t we faced on a daily bases.

Florian, I've emailed you regarding my question.

All the other people who emailed Florian. Many thanks!
