    Glad you like it.

    Just have some issues related to images and things. But I'll sort them out in a bit.

    I'll hang around on here a lot more now too. Could be in the market for another amarok soon. :)

    Can I strongly suggest you enable an SSL certificate for the site to protect folks passwords and protect us all from "man in the middle" issues. As your web developer, it should be bread and butter to him.

    It's something we'll sort out eventually.

    But to be honest, the data you provide on here isn't worthy of anybody specifically targeting us.

    You post openly your amarok colours and things nobody needs to find that kinda stuff out some other way.

    And if you enable two-step authentication for logging in nobody can login as you just by having your password.

    Then just make sure you don't use the same password on here as anywhere else.

    The forum should mostly work using https:// - We use CloudFlare.com as part of our protection systems, and they're very very good. We have flexible SSL. The only thing is (and I said this somewhere earlier) when you visit the forum using https:// - our images don't load.

    Our style is loading from http:// - So I just need to sort that out.

    But don't worry about it too much. We're not facebook. Nobody wants your data from here. It's worthless.

    This is great, was really worried that the Forum would collapse with the spammers. Mentioned the problem to Dave at BVR when I went for my Major Service. Looking forward to enjoying an unspoilt relevant Amarok Forum

    I got a bit sidetracked with my main forums. I'll be around now though. :)

    See, it was easy... ;) It protects folks who don't realise their passwords need to be special for an unsecure site. I must admit I have never posted too much about my Amarok on the site because it is a car thief dream, to find a site that gives you a local neighbourhood, colour, age and model of a potential target vehicle. Amaroks aren't really as hot for that kind of thing, I'm from a Series Landrover background, they have a theft problem... but it's an easy security thing that really should be in place on all sites, especially ones with user contributions. If they want in, they will get in, it's just about making yourself stronger than the weakest alternative target.

    Ta Muchly!
