I totally agree that the forum is devaluing the official site and suggested that it be taken off.
However, yet again I cannot post as it is fro some reason saying it has detected my post as being SPAM!
Come on guys, sort it out.
This must put people off visiting and devalues the very useful and interesting info that is there.
Steve - Totally agree with you, but somehow I managed to get a message on (switch the forum page off). To be honest, I think it was a worthless excersice as I don't think there's anyone really looking anymore (true fans or Julian)
Hi folks. The spam on the official site is gut-wrenching but it seems the engine we choose for the forum is just not solid enough to do a good job. Unfortunately, we also just don't have the resources at the present time to keep it monitored or implement a better one. So, u guys have the ball and I hope can run with it meantime.
Hopefully that will happen, just not right now. Thanks for everyone's patience and continued interest.
Why not put a direct link from the official website to this forum?
I (and others) have offered their services in the past - to police the CHARLIE-MUSIC forum page for you, until you get the spammer situation sorted.
What damage could 'we' do by removing\switching off the offending inputs - on your behalf.
The spammers have done a great job in putting the true CHARLIE-ITES off looking at the site
This is a Charlie forum.
What can be said there that can't be said here?
Just close down the forum on the main site, simple!
Correct, this is a CHARLIE forum, but it seems that it's one that isn't used that much - and that might be because few folk are aware it exists.
Yes, it would be nice to have everything together, rather than a bit here and a bit there.
We're looking into closing the charlie-music site forum and maybe try to link to here. Thanks, you guys. So great to hear your kind comments and stuff.
Good news regarding the link, I think we are all together on this in thinking it can only improve the Charlie presence.
As for the spammers.......time to Fight Dirty!
Dare I say it have the spammers been banished for good? Honestly, I don't want to jinx a good thing here if its not the case. If so, then that's awesome. Thanks to any & all who helped to foroceibly "take back our site" from the spamming heathens who've ruled it for far too long. I haven't checked back here in a very long time becuase I knew what I would find. But something today, a voice inside my head purhaps told me to do so. Well I'm glad I chose to to listen to "that" voice and stop by. Here's hoping the changes around here are premanentand not fleeting. After all isn't the web a big enough area for spammers to bloody go somewhere else for awhile?
