Spam issues and software upgrade

As you've no doubt seen, in the past week or two there has been a massive increase in spam attacks on the forum.

I am working at implementing software upgrades and more anti-spam measures to stop them.

The forum may be unavailable for short periods of time during this process - sorry for the hassle!

Thank you for doing this. New software looks good and blocking the recent rash of spam is also a good thing.

There might still be some spam in the next few days as I tweak the settings and figure things out...

Fixed your emojis (it would've been a problem with anyone's images, not just yours!)

Unfortunately, still gigantic :(

💩

Is there an option to turn off the custom emoji graphics and allow it to just use regular emojis?
