Now it is on Version 3 I can start updating rather than deleteing robots etc. 32 in one day was getting too much.

Small changes coming thru the week.

Thanks Andrew.

er, Robots? What they? Is this anything to do with a musical piece called Yoshimi Fights the Pink Robots? (which I have never heard)

They are, basically, computer programs that scan forums, join up and post viagra spam, or do other naughty things like try to steal membership data (though the latter is quite rare these days).

Usually shortened to 'Bots'. Have a look at this and you might learn more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot

At the risk of exposing myself as computer illiterate......... when I open the forum I now can't see the full width of the page without scrolling accross, is there a simple fix? (without changing how everything else on my computer looks!)

I am still on windows 1978...........

Move your screen further away from the computer, so you can see more of it. Or sit closer to the monitor. It works just like a window - sit closer and you can see more (to the left and right), or move it further from the object so you can see more of it.

Or hope that Stephen is able to make a forum style that isn't fixed width :)

Stephen, I have the same problem as Broadside, although I only lose things like 2 columns of font colour in the "post a reply" screen, so I lose very little and Broadside may lose more.

Screen set to 1024x768 pixels on my desktop non-widescreen screen. On my widescreen laptop, it looks fine.

I ought to change my desktop screen though - I've got dead pixels going half way across and about 1cm wide now.

On the screen size. I have made the forum pop up in a new window as i can't seem to resize the graphics.

Should be better for most now.

Hi Stephen

Keep up the good work. Forums without someone like you at the helm are not very good, so as I say, keep it up.
When I've just logged in, I see Registered users: Club F3 Meister, Google [Bot]. Does this mean you can't totally rid yourself of these pesky little bots, or is this OK?
