Forum changes...

Hello Everyone,
As mentioned briefly in the past, we’re looking to upgrade our forum platform in the coming months. We’re making some huge investments to improve our forum and enhance the forum community. I’m happy to say that the project is progressing smoothly, we’re also taking into consideration the feedback many of you have been giving us like the recent spam issues.
I’m very excited about the facelift and anticipate a similar reaction from all of you. There’ll be lots of fun activities with the forum revamp but we’ll remain focused on the key element – ‘how to make our forum a better place to help each other with any query related to O2 products & services.’
I’ll share more information as soon as I get them, until that watch the space guys! Smiley Happy
Any feedback or suggestion is appreciated.
Thanks
Abs

Abs - I've a follow up message about the new forum, requesting some security info - can I just confirm with you that this is legit (it is not asking for full security info, just partial so not sufficient to be of use, but thought I'd best check on here first).

Re: Forum changes...

It's now almost 3 months since a selected few of us received a PM from Abs telling us, amongst other things, that :

Last but not least, I want to mention another important thing to you guys. As informed very briefly in the past, we’re looking to upgrade our forum platform in the coming months.

And it's 2 months since Abs, in this thread, announced it to the general forum but other than having received an email inviting me to register my username for the new forum, which I deliberately haven't done yet, that's it.
Spamming continues and "strange" Profiles are still being accepted for registration, eg
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=170991
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=170892
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=170870
Exactly when will these improvements materialise ?

Hope you don't have to wait as long as we have for the new forum Smiley Very Happy
I guess that as my username hasn't been registered for the new forum, I'm no longer on the list of "recognised" members.....that's OK so long as I'm not now classified in with the spammers :mansurprised:

Re: Forum changes...

I wonder how they chose who to invite to the preview. I didn't get one, but then I never seem to get invited to anything Smiley Happy
