Yeah, click search user's posts for me and all my posts might come back. Search for a word within those posts though and it only finds very recent ones.

Search "gaff" or "naused" and you'll get a return (both used in posts today)

Search for "Clough" (mentioned in a post on 17th Jan) and you get no matches.

As I say, at a guess it's only returning words in very recent posts, possibly once since last week's downtime.

Yeah, I was previously just putting in the username, and all posts were coming back, but I entered a common keyword and only got two posts.
Let me have a think on that harry, I'll come back on here if I can come up with a solution.

Cheers. Not the end of the world but it's useful to be able to search like that sometimes.

If it's not a massive undertaking it would be good to be able to search further back again.

Registration to puntersmate has been disabled for now.
We are being flooded with multiple spam accounts.

When you say 'spam accounts', does that mean people trying to advertise/sell something, or a small minority from another forum trying to cause trouble?

The vast majority of new accounts registered were found to be on a spam database.

I'm going to merge the All American Sports Betting Forum with the Any other Sports And Specials Betting Forum.
I'll do that sometime this week.

Hi lads

Just to let you know that the forum software is again needing to be updated. And as was the case a couple of years ago the style (black and orange) that we have just now is not supported.
I found that the last time this happened, most people were happy with this style and wanted to stay with much the same. So that's what I'll be aiming for.

Over the next week or so you might find the board style changing now and again, but it's only going to be me working on it.

I'll post up once it's back to the best I can get it.

Ok harry.
Can anyone on the pale blue style go to user control panel/board preference/change board style to black.

Let me know if it's ok after that.

That appears to have done the job Col, once I could work out how to get to the user control panel!

Had to click on my username to get the dropdown options.

Not quite sure what happened there, I have black set as default, so everyone should have automatically went back to that.

So once again for anyone not on the black style.
Click on username top right/user control panel/board preferences/change board style to black

Ok lads
We are back online and the board has been updated.
The style is slightly different, but keeps the black and orange.

If you notice anything wrong with the board let me know.

A couple of things, neither a huge issue. Didn't we used t have a "new posts" link on the screen that you could click without having to use the drop down menu? Also, we had the "floating" arrow to take you down to the latest post on mobile devices. I suspect the latter was only added because of my moaning so no one else will probably miss it! :)

Last point seems to be resolved now as accessing a thread seems to take you straight to the latest post. :thumbs
