Hello everybody! I haven't been active on these forums for quite a while, but that doesn't mean I completely lost touch. Apart from still using sNews on a lot of websites, I did subscribe to the forums' RSS feed so that I could keep an eye on what's cooking.
OK, introduction is over! More to the point: it's not only the forums that has been swamped with spam, but the sNews website itself, too. Just as an example: check the comments here
I did refer a friend to sNews CMS recently, so that he could give it a try for a personal website, only to have it backfire at me, when this friend emailed me back and said (literally): this looks like a ghost house!
Now, I still love this little piece of software and would love for it to keep evolving, but unfortunately I cannot help in that endeavor. What I can
do though is help clean up the main website of shady adverts and nasty comments, along with applying a few mods on it to keep it nice and clean. I'm offering my time as a site admin on permanent basis, if the dudes will allow for it.
PS: there are a few issues left with the forums too, like strange characters appearing in places where a separator would be (like the breadcrumbs, for instance) ... an encoding issue?
