Over the past few months, the Forums have finally started to gain some momentum. I have been thrilled to see people connect with riding partners, share route recommendations, have lively discussions on important issues and much more.
Unfortunately, spam has forced me to temporarily close them down. For many weeks I was manually deleting the spam as it came in, but the volume steadily increased and I could no longer keep up.
Rather than continuing to deal with this problem, I want to upgrade the forum software instead. I had been using a free software platform and its configuration and security options are no longer adequate.
I’m hoping you can help me raise the money to purchase this new forum software (called vBulletin). A one-year license is $85.00. Please consider using PayPal to donate so I can re-open the forums.
And by the way, all the great posts and discussions are still there, they’re just hidden from view. I will export everything to the new platform when it is ready. That brings up another issue…anyone out there know how to install and set up vBulletin?
Thanks for your help, I look forward to the return of lively, spam-free forums soon!
