You got that right Jacob.
Now I can just sit back and relax.
Not worry about when, or if, SMFNew will appear back online.

Have opened signups on SMFNew2.com hopefully in time will add more and more SMFNew features.


Progress on restoration about 50% just uploading files then have to write a couple conversion scripts then should be good to go.

SMFNew Admin,


Are you working on the Home?
It is not accessible.
Change upon the most viewed and accessed page would really be a great choice.
I believe it would be more eye-catching, and persuasive for new users to join.  :p

Have tested one forum on smfnew.com looks good being converted. About 25% done converting forums.

Also running a script to clean up any spam members. Spam posts will still be there but hopefully this should clean a lot of spam registrations.

Only worry I have at the moment is the spam load depending on how many spammers are trying to access the forums. This support forum was over run with registrations before.

Yeah, that was one issue I always attempted to take care of, but one man, going through a massive list of users, makes it kind of hard to keep the spambots under control. :P

May I please make the suggestion of keeping SimplePortal.
We, from the early days of SMFNew, all used the advantage of SimplePortal.
Seeing that you have taking that option away from the free hosted personaly
gets to me.


I still love that updates though and keep them coming please.

Issue with simple portal is the shoutbox is pretty instensive I might bring it back for classifc forums.

Right now SMFNew is under huge attack of spam bots.... I have all forums copied trying to see what i can do to help reduce the load.

Have turned the forums off again. Had turned them on but seems to be a lot of spam bots still active.
Going to rescan delete any active spam bots and their posts.

Will do in the next day or two.
