Default IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!! What's up with the SR.COM Administration?!

Ace, Hypnotic Supra and I have been going out of ways in the present and past in order to provide a free way (to you guys) of communication, BS'ing, and sharing common interest/knowledge in Racing and cars in general.

As the site grew a bit bigger, so did the head aches that come with running a website. We gained some ground on hits by a large margin now and we are happy about that, but with up's, also come down's.. SPAM.

It was an even bigger problem in the past that we brought out a "task force", I guess you can say, assigning people to delete the posts and accounts, etc. but clearly that was only a band-aid and not a remedy. Our precautionary measures in registrations were being constrained to faults in coding within our PHP scripts. Pretty much, things weren't working as they should and WHEN they should..

I know some of you might be saying, "Well it's about time.." or maybe it should have been left to someone who isn't "lazy", etc. But it really isn't.. People charge A LOT of money even to forum owners to overcome certain hiccups.

There might be some people saying they could do what Ace, HS, and I do, but let me remind you, coding your vBulletin, PHP, CSS, XHTML is not your typical Yahoo.com Pagebuilder process you can just pick up and within 5 minutes start doing. This takes A LOT of patience, dedication and HOURS upon HOURS of research and a very open knowledge and understanding in coding laguages. If you have no knowledge of coding languages without using a program to tell you WTF you are doing, then forget about trying to run a website, let alone a FORUM.

This is something we do in our spare time and not for a living. This is our net source of income, so cut us some slack if sometimes we act like we are brushing the problems of this site under the carpet. Everything will be taken care of. We also have a new design for the site.

NOW!! What I would LOVE for you guys to do..

On the bottom left hand corner, we have a drop down menu. It should be right now on "AFTER DARK" - please go ahead and switch that over to "LOLSRCOM" as the older skins will be taken down. This one is still being worked on, but it's just to show a new face and show you guys we are actually doing SOMETHING.

Anyway, with all that said, we will proceed to run this forum and keep it as enjoyable as possible for all. The hiccups of this site are getting worked out, slowly but surely. Just give us some time. For now, I believe the main problem is cured. If spam finds a way around our filters now, then we shall try something else we have up our sleeves.

Thank you all for making SR.COM what it is today.

Roger

And a reminder to all to

If you guys are already seeing the new layout, then you have nothing to worry about.

The only thing I feel we need is just a new banner. I'm moving around some stuff still and changing some images around as well..

What do you guys think of the new lay out?
