Another "fingerprint" could be to allow everyone to have their own avatars, not just members.

Eric,

Send me the ID of a post, response or followup - I can get the email and password from the system and if required ban the user or at least send them an email.

Every user has there own login and password it is just that the system does not check every ScreenName as unique - I am looking at this - It is not easy as I have to manage uniqueness through the self rego (Visitor) system, Members system and also advertisers - It will take a few days - I must also manage the users that now already have a clash and work out what to do. You will see a newsletter or post about the resolution.

You may have noticed that you cannot now change your screenname during the submission of a post, reply or followup - I will get it right soon.Regards

If I may be so bold to suggest that owners (David) of this forum contact "laser" at v8central.com.au, that site forum is a beauty, and is controlled very well. When you talk to him, tell him Big Trev recommended you call. It is by far Australias biggest motorsport forum.

Thanks Big Trev however I already have the source code for the Snitz freeware forum. I personally wrote this forum because I hate the way the other forums operate (with the points for more posts and stuff that detracts from getting good answers - these forums tend to get a lot of rubbish posts to allow people to move up the list). I have created ours and am happy with the current operation in fact our forum is fully integrated into the rest of the site unlike all other forum systems that are tacked into the site. We automatciily update various pages around the site with forum posts and stuff that the other forums do not do. Our current issue is of user management for the entire site and is a fairly easy fix in the scheme of things.

Thanks for the feedback we do value these types of posts however as mentioned I have already got all this source code for Snitz and I am still happy to make ours work the way we have it. This is mainly based on feedback indicating that people do not like the way most forums operate (specifically the post more posts and move up the ladder).Regards
