It's not necessarily over. We don't have a better spam prevention system in place, just a stop gap. Which evil do you prefer: no image linking, or no new users? For now, I'm going with the latter since it'll give us some time to catch our breath while letting everyone else continue to use the board "normally".

Agreed, and with any luck, the spammers will get bored during this stopgap and find another forum to spampage around.

and @ Survulus: Andrew D is right, it could have been soo much more, like life in prison and a larger sum of money that they could owe...

I've recently been asked to make a short animation illustrating the story of Jonah, for a church presentation next next Sunday. 3-4 minutes, cartoon style drawings about a guy getting swallowed by a whale. Happiness: I'm gaining fame within our youth group as the go-to guy for all things "artsy-fartsy", as my friend so much likes to call it. Rant: I have less than a week to learn how to properly use Flash and draw several convincing montages of a bible story. Luckily, we have standardized tests, which means no homework. Time to get started.

Simon has once again dis regarded the edit button. A shocker? Not so much because it has occurred 4 times already today.

Does it hurt you that badly? Does his double posting slow your computer down to a hold? Does it really matter? No. :roll:

You can, if this issue grinds you so, lodge a formal complaint with Ash, BoltBait, CMD, David, Rick* or myself, where suitable action will be taken.

However, before you do this, you should also see it from Simon's point of view. Double-posting has practicalities aside from ruffling your feathers: a new statement is to be made that requires as much attention as the last, yet was made a time after the first posting - edits don't flag as new posts, therefore there's a chance it could be missed, and earnest discussion passed. Whilst he could delete his second posting after realising nobody had posted since, then re-post with the new information affixed, this is too much unnecessary effort to avoid a double post. All the while someone could jut in with a new post therefore incurring the first point made in the paragraph: his new statement may be lost to a new conversation.

Furthermore, let's face it, Simon is breaking no Rule by doing so. As only Simon and the few occasions some of us do it, it's not exactly a common occurrence that's plaguing the Forums - that's what spam does, and look where that ends up. :)

Do any of you know a better PDF conversion tool than PDF Printer?
PDFCreator, I swear by it. Mostly. It has a habit of bloating file sizes, so that when Simon's advice of OOo comes in. It's swings and roundabouts between the two for me.

*alphabetical order. I don't do 'favourites' too well.
