The boring reason might be that logins expire more slowly as I didn't copy any settings across. We're still missing quite a few regulars but I hope we'll see them again eventually
Yeah the massive registration issues ironically helped keep the bots out (at the expense of driving all of the actual users nuts). I know quite a few people got locked out over the months the old forum was wobbly.Demelza said:That could also just be due to the fact users have been having trouble registering for a little bit before our old site went down, so now we're just getting some new faces in.

I can't help but think some people who use even less social media than I do are going to be completely lost, but I guess the old site has a redirect now.
Pretty much all their doing is faking your email address which is most likely why it's being caught and sent straight to the spam folder (it also might be that their only faking it as the senders name and the actual email address is being shown and is a known spammer), so you can't do anything until they get tired of using that data and getting nowhere with it.HdE said:Just an FYI after the AUKN hack, or rather something I've noticed.
I've been getting spammy emails from myself, which have been going to my junk / spam folder. I'm not especially tech savvy, but I'm told this is something that happens - it's called 'from spoofing', apparently. Spammers use your email username to make it appear their crap is being sent from your email.
I've changed my passwords, but I'm told there's not much that can be done to stop it happening. I'm not really sure how serious this is (I suspect 'not very', seeing as I've dilligently changed my passwords on EVERYTHING) but it sure is annoying.
