Re: MazzaE - deactivated

I've had a few ppl ask for that. You just need to make sure they have some way to contact you to get their account reactivated. Until this morning, the 'contact' page served that purpose, but there are alternatives.

Re: Removal of non-forum pages

Done (I think). http://www.australianwritersforum.org.au now redirects to /forum; search engine records have been updated so the hit on SEO for this change should be zero. In addition, all of the non-phpBB pages have been removed. Using old links to any of these will now result in 404 errors. There ...

Re: Removal of non-forum pages

I'll have a go at this tomorrow (26 Nov) morning. It shouldn't affect the /forum pages so I won't take the forum off-line, but there's a small risk. If you're contemplating typing a Tolstoy-esque post at the time, you may be glad of copying your text to clipboard every so often.

I'll take a backup copy before I wipe it, but extracting anything useful from the backup of those pages would be very ...

Re: New Board Idea

Agree. It seems rather related to 'Personal Journeys' (which was a previously-requested feature that largely fell into disuse). Perhaps they could be amalgamated under an appropriate name?? This would avoid increasing the number of forum sections which, I think, is a concern of Paul's (and rightly s...

That's a great idea! The colours could be aligned with those used for the various ranks (regulars, moderators, etc).

Unfortunately, the forum software doesn't seem to have the ability to do this by default, but there may be an extension that allows it.
