Active Topics for each Category.

You can now click on a Category title (say like, Lord of the Rings in the dark bar over the subforums or in the navigation trail at the top --> Board index ‹ Lord of the Rings ‹ Army Lists (LotR)) and that will take you to a page that not only lists the subforums but will also show you a list of active topics specifically tailored for that Category.

We seem to be getting a lot more spammers lately. Is there a captcha module or something that could be added to cut down on that?

It is one particular spammer and that is it. Look up Vance Miller, his legacy and the 100's of other phpbb boards invaded with kitchen spam.

Last night was the first night without any in several weeks. I delete and ban every morning. There already is a captcha in place. Been looking at other mods and thinking about moderating new users for awhile (which I something I really do not want to do).

No, I can understand that, manually moderating new user requests is a real pain.

So this guy manually creates his accounts? Or has click-farmers doing it or something? Oh well, was a thought. I notice they always get cleaned up, so thanks for that.
