Online Casino's and there cheap marketing tactics

After much searching I believe I have found the culprit.
Rest assured I will be installing a user verification process to counter this kind of sign up user. I will also send a polite email to their hosting provider and hopefully that will be the end of it.

Thats not really relevant, hehe.

Not sure I get the joke but I'm sure you find it funny .
Anyway just a follow up, I have no installed image verification so that new users must enter a code that is shown as an image to sign up. I'm not sure if the users or bots were manually signing up or not but I guess we will find out soon enough. :roll:

I did remove all those posts didn't I? If there are still any left let me know. I think I'm going to have to change the forum so that you must be a member to post and reply to posts in all forums. It's the only way to prevent this rubbish unfortunately.
I wanted to leave the classifieds open? opinions?

On another note, it would be good to have recent pics posted come up on the front page. I think it would get more people updatimg gallery more often and just get more people posting photos in general!?

I want to also look at changing the location of the forums from http://www.viczcar.c...eb/bulletin/bb/ to http://www.viczcar.com/forums/
like wise with the gallery
Long story as to why it was configured this way but I believe it isn't helping with Search Engine optimisation having the forums that deep into directories.

I think when I make some further changes to the site I'll reinstall the photogallery and re-integrate it with phpBB and see what happens.
ahh Bugs gotta love em' :shock:

While I'm at it, most days when I try to access the site, it times out and says page cannot be found, but works almost instantly when I click refresh.... Occasionally I have to refresh two or three times. Is there anything that can be optimised for this? I'm on 1500kb ADSL, so shouldn't have this problem..... Worked fine today, for whatever reason.

If you log into the forums and then click on the gallery can you upload photos then? Or if your logged in at the front page and then go to the gallery can you see the upload image link?
I might need a dummy account to test these problems as an average user.
The problems with site timeouts I've noticed also and I put this down to our website host. I think there are problems with their nameservers and the site went down last night.
It might be worth Sulio and I looking into another host with a more reliable service. The only problem is our budget and since we don't have any funds for the site or advertising we are a little limited.
I guess these are all valid points to raise with the members of the site. I might need to start a new thread.
I'd say the main issue with server time outs would be that we don't have a dedicated server for the site and other websites on the same server are probably putting load on the server causing timeouts.

Also could you try hitting refresh on the gallery page just to make sure your not seeing a cached version or something like that.

I'm always logged into the site, and I've tried going from the main page to the gallery, and from the forums to the gallery. And in the past I've tried logging out of the site, and then logging back into from gallery page, but it just takes me to the forum...
The last file Sulio uploaded, according to the gallery was on November 30 this year, so what if anything have you changed since then?

All I can think of is maybe you have an old cookie present try deleting cookies perhaps? I've tried under a normal log in on my computer at work and home. It appears to be fine.
I almost always use Firefox so I'm going to test IE now see if that is the problem. The only bug I've noticed is when I try log out of the site from the photo gallery I get an invalid session error.

Did you guys tick the box "log me on each time" ? On the login screen? If so it could be an old cookie giving the issue with the gallery and maybe it still works ok for the forum???
Unfortunately I haven't been able to replicate the error on my end.
