Odd Topic Notification
« on: April 15, 2010, 11:37:49 AM »
Paul I received a topic notification from you (evidently), but it was different from the norm.
The link was this:

http://www.ploppy.me.uk/index.php

Which took me into an evidently new layout using as it said 'SMF just installed'. It's as far as I can see totally unusable, but you can see all the messages.

Info please and I suggest no one hits that link until Paul gets back on this one.

Thanks Chris but I still don't understand why I got that email. Did anyone else?

i am guessing there is no restriction on joining that forum, therefore spammers can join, i didn't get any notifications but if my settings have been replicated from this forum, i wouldn't get them

not wishing to teach paul how to suck eggs, but i would be tempted to close the membership on the SMF forum so as to stop any future spam

Yes i've disabled registration.

Cheers for the heads-up.

Anyone been to Stockholm before? I'm stuck there and need things to do :-)
