I don't seem to be able to close the board to new postings, but I could make it fully moderated which would mean that any new postings would have to be approved by me.

That could be a bit of a pain but it would give me the opportunity to point people to the YaBB boards.

The YaBB boards don't have a captcha system like voy to prevent spam but I'll probably set them so that you have to register in order to sign on.

I'm a bit against that in principle, I think it puts people off, but most boards do that now and they can be read without registering.

the captcha thing itself is a bit of a pain but it prevents the sort of spam postings we have had. (presumably)

If you google trapper yachts now the top answer links to the new site,and the next directory down after that has agreed to change things for me.

I nearly switched it all over last night but I'm a bit concerned that I might trash the site that is the main site being hosted, the trapperyachts one is a sub domain so that I don't pay too much.

I've backed up the main site now, I'll take a bit of advice and then get the new one uploaded at the weekend hopefully.

Despite assurances from Freeservers the soft porn still seems to be there but it alternates with other banners.
