General Discussion Forum / Cleantalk Antispam
« on: April 01, 2020, 08:18:57 pm »
Not long ago I installed a new plugin for the forum called Cleantalk to help manage the amount of spam accounts that I was having to deal with every day. It managed to block a few hundred right away and I was able to monitor it relatively easy so I decided to fork out the money for 3 years of their service. There have been a couple false positives, but I was able to handle those with a lot less hassle than it used to take me every day with all the bot accounts and spam posts I had to fight. In the process I was also able to get the SSL certificate for the site created and installed, which took a little doing on its own but has proven to help so far. In the end, if you find yourself managing a forum and you're having trouble with spam then give them a look see. They've got plugins for most of the popular forum and wiki base software suites.

Plugins & Plugin Creation Forum / Manual plugin status
« on: March 22, 2018, 03:41:32 am »
I just spent some time going through every plugin download link in the manual download plugin thread and have marked all the broken ones. If anyone has updated info on where any of the marked plugins can be found please let me know. I'll be removing dead ones in a couple weeks. Also I'll be trying to set aside some time in the near future to go through the update list and make sure they're all working.

General Discussion Forum / Requested URL was rejected (temporary fix)
« on: September 02, 2017, 05:28:45 am »
It seems the host has changed some of the security settings so some of our users might be unable to connect to the forums or the regular website. If you're seeing this and experience an error stating that the requested URL was rejected along with a support ID, then the way to fix it for now is to clear any and all lackeyccg cookies from your browser.

I've got a message into Trevor so hopefully he'll get in touch with the host soon (since his name is on the account), and we can get a long term fix in place hten.

CCG Design Forum / Necro Posting
« on: April 19, 2016, 03:41:20 pm »
While we don't have a specific rule against posting in old threads, as some of the most popular threads have been around for quite some time, it's come to my attention that there's been alot of necro posting in this particular board. If you're looking to contribute to a project someone is working on, a good gauge to go by is if the original poster shows as 'Guest' then they've been inactive so long that their account has been deleted and thus the likely hood of you getting any useful reply is basically zero. Also if it's been several years since the last post in a thread, the project is likely either finished or dead. If the original poster is still around, you can try PMing them.

Only plugins with an online updatelist should be in this thread. If the plugin requires a manual download (of a zip file for example) then it should not be in this list. This thread is also not for questions about plugins. If a particular plugin isn't working for you, first try to contact the plugin maintainer. Failing that you can contact me and we'll try to sort it out or at least get it removed from the list.

As of 10/10/2019 all the listed plugins are confirmed working.

If you are a plugin maintainer and your plugin isn't listed here but does have a working updatelist.txt online, then please post in this thread the plugin name, maintainer name, updatelist location and website if there is one.

General Discussion Forum / Forum theme change
« on: October 05, 2013, 01:37:52 pm »
Everyone might notice that the theme's changed for the forum. I've changed it to the current smf default "curve" theme to help me track down some errors that were happening as well as to prep the forums for some changes that Trevor's wanting me to make down the road.

General Discussion Forum / Forum Updates
« on: March 29, 2013, 01:35:54 am »
It's been a while coming, but over the next week or so I'll be updating the forum software and performing some general maintenance as I have time. There might be a brief interruption of service with the forums, if there is just check back a little later.

General Discussion Forum / Forum Update Finished
« on: July 15, 2012, 02:58:31 am »
Just got done with another round of updates to the forum software and all the behind the scenes mods that keep this place running for us.

For those curious individuals, we've had 284341 Spammers blocked since I started using a few security tools to keep those spam bots off the forums. The introduction of the captcha at registration has also helped in that regard.

If you notice any problems with the forum let me know.

I'll be doing another round of updates this coming weekend to the forum software. I'll try to pick a time when not many people are using it, but the forums will be down during the update (approximately an hour). I'll update this thread with more info as I go.

The shoutbox is gone for a little while. I needed to do an update the base forum to fix some security issues. The shoutbox will return when I get it all straightened out.
