New InqScribe Discussion Forum

We’ve been using phpbb to run our discussion forum for InqScribe. Unfortunately, phpbb-run sites receive a ton of spam, and the ratio of spam to legitimate posts was extremely high. In addition, in order to try to slow down the spammers, we had to create a set of hoops that everyone who wanted to post a question or comment had to jump through: you had to complete a registration form, check your email for a “welcome” message that contained a URL, and click the URL… all just to ask a basic question about how InqScribe worked.

It’s no wonder we weren’t getting a lot of traffic on the forum. So, we’ve switched over to a new forum that should address both issues: it’ll have limited spam and you can post a question right away, without having to register at all.

We’ve left the old forum up as an archive: you can search its contents, but no new posts (or registrations) are allowed.

Stop by and drop us a note.
