    If there's a particular feature you'd like to see please let us know below.

    NB: we cannot guarantee that everything is possible, but it never hurts to ask

    How about a Technical area? Somewhere where we can cry over nuts and bolts problems and you can gave your sage advice?

    So "technical issues" or something like that?

    That sort of stuff. Somewhere for people who aren't that familiar with problems that occur from time to time. The old Irish Webmaster Forum is greatly missed!

    I've added a section for that
    As for IWF - If I get a chance over the next couple of weeks I'll bring it back online...

    Well it got taken offline for a silly reason and I didn't have time to get it back online.
    I need to move it to a different server and also change the forum software over to the same thing I'm using here. XenForo seems to have a lot of useful features built-in and a simple licensing model, whereas vBulletin's licensing model just confuses the hell out of me ..

    Oh for the joys of not worrying about licenses! Have to rely on freebies here. Hope you have a good pension plan?!

    I've still got a few years before I have to worry about that :)

    XenForo is built by ex-devs of vBulletin that is why certain elements are similar to VB but since VB5 came out, it has slowly gone down hill. (Not to mention all the 0-Day exploits)

    On topic, I use this on my XenForo forum, (more useful for your mneylon than ourselves) and that is to prevent spam registrations. I found this one to be the best. Just insert the country to deny and all good: Semprot Deny Country

    Thanks - handy! I usually block certain "problematic" countries that seem to generate dodgy registrations + zero value :)
    https://www.blocked.com/ is also handy, though I haven't looked at getting it to work with XenForo yet
