Small Starburst State of the Board 14 Dec 2012

We have, for the moment, got things mostly under control.

I have discovered I need a couple more permissions set for me before I can really lock-down the spam issue.

However, much of the spam is being killed before the average user sees it. This is good. This also means most of it never makes it to the search-bots, too - they don't see moderated posts, either.


It looks like, in the last two weeks, we've had about 12 real users sign up, another 100 or so that might be real, and about 600 that are clearly spammers - and another 50 or so the mods caught. That leaves some 300 - most of whom have not logged back in since their initial visit.

I've added a Starburst smiley and Post Icon as an experiment.
I've reordered the smilies a bit and may add a few more, if people can justify them.

Sub, Spoiler and Sblock
I've added the [sub]~~~[/sub] tag for adding subscripts. Mostly for formulae and chemicals. We use enough of them.

I've replicated the [sblock]~~~[/sblock] tag with a [spoiler]~~~[/spoiler] tag. This brings usage inline with most of the other boards out there. I'm not about to pull the old tag, either - this is just a convenience for those of us using multiple boards.
