As you know, the site was broken into on November 27. Since that time, I have worked to restore a September backup and rehost the site on another computer that is dedicated solely to hosting The Fan Forum. This has some nice advantages. We now have no limits on bandwidth or disk space consumption.
In setting up the site again, I have made some minor changes.
- Updated phpBB and phpMyChat
- Logo on Upper Left Hand Side now rotates. Submit your 300x150 logo and see it there.
- Visual confirmation (type in what you see) required when registering
- Automated nightly backups to a different machine. This way, there is no human involvement and if this machine dies, we have it somewhere else.
- Links to Amazon (.com and .uk), CD-Now and PayPal so we all can help pay for the site. This will include direct links to EC material on Amazon since that improves the kickback.
- System News Blog.
- Users in Chat displayed on top page.
- Page with complete set of logos shown.
If you have any ideas or notice any problems, please feel free to PM myself or Spooky or just email her.
