For the next hour, the site will - look funny, act funny, and probably smell funny too.

Thanks for your patience.

Just for a little disclosure: the template we've been using for the past few years has not been updated in over 2 years now. Therefore, it does not support all of the new features the forum software has implemented (mostly in the back-end) since 2004.

It's very much on the "bulky" side for my taste as well.

But I don't find it ugly.

most of the "ugly" is in the "bulky"

but if it limits spam posts and users, go for it

Installed code that will retain window width, and create scroll bars for people that don't know how to use spaces, or extremely long urls.

If anyone notices any porn spam that I have missed, please let me know.

I am going to be pruning users soon, to get rid of all users:

a) who's accounts aren't activated (they put in a fake email)
b) who have not posted

A single line of text with no spaces would resize the ENTIRE text box, therefore making the browser have a scrollbar at the bottom. How it works now, is the forum is smart enough to contain the offending text in it's own scroll box. Word Wrap is still very much a part of these forums, as you can see by this response.

If word wrap wasn't turned on then we would all
have to type like narco does, and hit enter
before he actually hits the end of the message
box. All our posts would look like this.

Once again illustrating why it's so important to have proper forum management policies in place...and the people to do the work.
