    If you offer a "premium member" feature, it could always be something extra for them :) Just an idea though, that has been suggested to me before but the part about activity decreasing is what makes me not do it.....yet :P

    Forum Software Update and Scheduled Downtime

    Buttons appear to be working on my end. That sprite.php file missing is the likely cause. After its fixed, everyone may need to clear cache and try again :)

    Dealing with spam.

    If I may suggest, Q&A anti-spam methods are the best I have seen for blocking out spam... I run a lot of forums myself :) I run vb, ipb, smf and mybb. I probably run 30 of them and will run more too :P Anyways, spam was always an issue so I started trying to methods... CAPTCHA is junk unless...
