There has been an apparent increase in sketchy profiles which may be spammers, so we have increased the level of difficulty in the sign-on questions. If you link to sketchy web sites, your account will be blocked as a spammer. If you think this has been done unjustly contact Support.


2015-11-02 -- Grrrrr!! AAmpere (amp), SI unit of electrical current bug has surfaced in File Upload. It may be related to the installation of the Social Profile extension (see below). We will be trying to fix the issue on Sunday Nov. 8.

  • This issue has been tracked to a specific cause.
  • Disabled the point system in the Social Profile.

2015-10-26 -- Social profile has a feature "Foes" which we don't want, and whose display we have turned off, but the toggle doesn't seem to work so you can still see it. Unfortunately with all software we have to pretty well take it as it comes. We will report it as a bug.
