I'll be transitioning to a new forum over the next few days and have locked the current forum. Forum spam has gotten out of control and the original forum software I used (Fireboard Forum for Joomla) has very poor controls. When I first started this site, I never considered spam since I barely got any traffic. Since then, traffic has gotten much heavier and I've had to upgrade my hosting account multiple times. The forum transition should be happening this week and it's the start of a site makeover. I'll write a post describing more about it, but suffice it to say I now know what I want in terms of website software whereas things were haphazard when I first started FreakLabs. More to come later, but sorry for the inconvenience. Forum should be back up by the end of the week.
