As you may have noticed, the message board is becoming more popular during the "off season". I remember only a few years ago where I could go a couple of days in the winter, and not even see a single new post. Therefore, the "off season" has become a only slight lull when compared to April/May. I've really started to notice this the last couple of months....and that's a GOOD THING!
I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you guys for helping report spam and answering questions for new people. Even though some of the answers are in the FAQ section of the website, it takes a special effort to help people out on an individual basis. Unfortunately, I don't have as much time to be on the board as I used to, so the effort you guys put into that means a lot to myself and KB. And it certainly translates into a better festival experience for the people asking the questions.
A while back, we put in a few additional measures to help combat spam. It seemed to work pretty well for awhile, but I've noticed that our spam quantity has been steadily increasing the past couple months. I'll have to check into any additional options that may be available.
When you guys report it using the (!) at the bottom of the posting box, it automatically sends dual links (for the thread and the post) directly to my e-mail. So when I get up in the mornings all groggy and such, I don't have to log-in and search for all these spam posts that occurred during the night. I can simply click on the provided link and it takes me right to the post. A few seconds and keystrokes later, I'm done.
So anyway, thank you and keep up the good work!!!
