Hello everyone!

Long time, no talk. I'm just dropping in to give you guys a hand with the recent spam issues. Just an update as to whats going on:

  • Previously the site used a Q&A question for registration, but this has since been changed to a Captcha system, and I hope that catches more bots.
  • We have gone through the recent members list and pruned every bot that has made an account in the last few months. Literally thousands! This should have deleted any spam topics that might have slipped through the cracks as well.
  • The gallery has undergone some desperately needed maintenance and we will be re-opening gallery registrations soon.
  • I've made a few changes to the board layouts, mainly by moving Genestealer Cults to the Shadow in the Warp heading as they're a legitimate army now! :lol:

Coming in the future I'd like to introduce a few more board changes and shuffles, restarting board contests and more frequent and News/Announcement topics and front page posts.

So a big thank you to everyone for being so patient with our staff, and with the bugs that the board has been facing as off late. Now, if we can ask you for a little help:
  • Please remain diligent in reporting any spam topics, posts or even users you might see.
  • Please spread the word that Warpshadow is back in business, so that we can get a little life back into this wonderful and beautiful forum.
  • And most of all please continue to post, have fun and enjoy what we've all come together for: Tyranids.

Lastly, if you have any comments, questions or suggestions for the forum, please don't hesitate to share. :)

Thanks to all helpers out there.
Hopefully it will work with keeping bots away.

Yaaaaysss.

(I'll try to actively blog more next year. I am moving into a bigger place and would have the space to set up a proper photography area etc. Cross fingers Tyranids get some love soon too.)

hey there,

I haven't posted a lot in quite some time - I can say that the bot problem turned me away almost
the same way that real life kept me from posting. I am looking forward to the future - I would really
like to post more here again :)

One problem was that I couldn't log into my gallery anymore. Maybe this changes in the future :)

best wishes,
Simon

I have been gone a while as well and I am looking forward to seeing life in 8th. Can't wait to see what your projects will be and rules and tactic thoughts are as we wait for another codex.
