Help us fix the forum!

Short and sweet guys, we are getting inundated with spam and need to hire a code guru to tweak the software. We currently have to sift through 180-200+ new postings daily, by hand, to weed out the russian and chinese bs that flood the inbox. The fix doesn't come cheap and the monthly board fees are a constant challenge to keep up with as you can imagine.

If you value this sanctuary and the variety of great information that is available on pretty much any amp you can name, please hit the donate button and help us keep this place running on all 8.

Cheers,


-BVM

Just sent my second donation of the year.

Too bad our online names don't match. Not that it is a big deal.

I just want to continue to watch what our Scandinavian Genius is up to.

The price of admission.

I'm a software engineer, and love working on vintage amps. (I'm converting a Vox AC100CPH to a VoxAC100/2 right now). I'd be willing to help. I'm guessing there may be some easy plugins for the BBS software that help combat spam, and/or adding in re-captcha's as well.

Let me know if you'd like some help.
