Over the last few weeks, spammers have been trying to get registered on our club website so they can post advertising (and other junk) in our new forums.
Despite having put additional levels of security on the registration page, they are still at it!
So I have temporarily disabled new registrations.
As you know, registration on the website is only for financial members of the club, so if anyone wants to get registered so you can login and access the members only area and the forums, please send me an email and I’ll do it for you…
Hi After various problems with the old forum, I've decided to change to a more sophisticated type of forum product.
I hope it proves to be a bit more reliable :-)
One unfortunate side affect is that there is no way to migrate all the old forum posts over... so while they are not gone, they cannot be easily accessed. Sorry!
Feel free to try it out. Remember that only members who have registered on the website can post to the forum.
After quite a period with the BikeManawatu Banner at the top of the website blank… banner ads have returned.
