    This will eventually happen. Currently, we are in a waiting state for one of the modules we use with the forums to get updated so we can upgrade the version of the platform we currently use which will give us the ability to add that feature. In the current state of the forum platform, it is not possible to add that feature. I know this is something this community has been looking forward to for a while. I apologize for taking so long, but this is completely out of my control.

    Dude, it's fine.
    At least SOMEONE is looking out for us.

    We are down to a skeletal crew here since Wings 2.0 left town for New England 4 years ago and then we got disconnected from IL. Hopefully, with the new franchises (especially Wings 3.0) and a reconnect with IL, we can drum-up business again.

    Meanwhile, I noticed that TLF uses the same essential system. Makes me wonder if this board and TLF (if possible) should actually be merged into a single system.

    Thanks again!
    Vin :)

    I guess they’re mad they didn’t get drafted?

    They are mad they didn’t get a draft hat their kids made

    Well, I mean they are producing diplomas for players in the NLL. I'd be pretty mad if I didn't get a draft hat either.

    These spammers really love the Calgary Roughnecks forum.

    Thanks for the warning. I am going to see if there is a pattern in the IP range they are signing up from and will reject any users that are signing up with an IP address from that country or countries.

    Good morning.

    So I guess that's it for another 24 hours.

    Here is the deal, "building a wall" will do nothing. Currently, the people creating these accounts have IP addresses in the US. If I block those IP ranges, legitimate users will not be able to sign up to the forums. Yes, spam is annoying I get it. For now, just report it, someone will remove it.

    Meh, just don't allow new members at all. Make this an exclusive country club.
