  2. Thanks Chris, I used to use the report button on posts that I found to be spam, if that is how you'd like to be notified I'll be more that happy to continue doing that or if you prefer some other method just let me know. Mike
  3. Thanks Chris, it's really a pain to have to go through a dozen or so foreign language posts to get to something readable. Sorry you have to do so much unnecessary work just to keep the forum alive. Thanks for your diligence. Mike

  5. Merry Christmas & Happy (golden) New Year. Good Luck in 2020. Mike
  6. Got on the main site OK this morning 6:15am Arizona time. Went to gold detectors, then GPX5K and it just sat there with the little circle whirling around. So I would say the site is about half awake. Mike
  7. That's really cool. Now I wonder if the contents are still good. Mike
  8. Merry Christmas, Happy and Prosperous New Year. Mike

    Spam Attack

    Chris, You might want to consider adding one of those "I'm not a robot" tests to your sign up (not sign-in) process. One of those that makes you pick the street signs or business building etc. The robots haven't figured those out yet and that will keep them out. Their a small pain for humans to do but sure keep non-humans out (so far). Mike
  10. Glad your happy with it. Good Luck, hope you find it helpful. MIke
  11. As of this morning, he is out and in the hospital. Both legs broken and various other injuries, in allot of pain. 62 years old and apparently does some kind abandoned mine hunting along with a neighbor of his, who is the guy that found him and called for help. Mike
  12. Jen, If Chris doesn't have one. I believe I have one of those "old" Coiltek pin pointer coils. Have had it for years and only used it a couple of times. Right now I'm not sure where it is but if your interested I'll find it and if you want post a picture of it. It should be pretty close to new condition although it has been to allot of places inside a detector bag. Mike
  13. It's true Chris. The last day of business for Tesoro was October 5 I believe. All employees have been let go and the doors have been closed. Mike
  14. Good job Chris. I'm sure you had as much fun as the kids. Mike
  15. Thanks Chris for the contest. The 30 word limit is a real killer though. But I guess you shouldn't have to read a bunch of books to decide on a winner. Mike
  16. You might want to check with either Steve H (can't spell his last name) or your cousin Rob. They have the same forum software and neither ever seem to have any spam on them. Mike
  17. Right guys, been doing the "mark forum read" click every day for about a week now. Chris, if you don't have the time to monitor/police the forum, I'm on it almost every day and given the authority and instructions I'd be happy to delete the spam threads and the thread creators. I know Steve H. and Rob Allison appear to have the safe forum software as you do - they never seem to have spam. I have seen software that asks for a verification code to be used when signing up for a forum this is to prevent spammers from signing up using auto-sign up software rather then actually being live on the system. It works really well, you alomost never see spam on the systems that use it. Mike

    New Forum Upgrade

    Hey Chris, More Spam again today, on the stuff for sale forum and one other one below. Interesting selling Green cards and UK Visa cards...Swell. Hope you can get rid of these things once and for all. BTW: today is 4/4/18 Mike
  19. So very kind of your wife to share her "good fortune" with you. My wife did the same with me, just about done with it now. Mike
  20. I also. This morning they called it a sub-machine gun Hmmm. Mike
  21. Valley news at about 6:15 this morning said 24,800 acres. Very concerned for numerous friends and business owners in the path. Mike
  22. Chris, just because you are not legally liable for any injuries suffered on your claim does not mean that you cannot be sued and taken to court for them. It only means that if the court has any common sense (which seems to be more and more of a rarity in the current court system) the case will be thrown out. You bring up a very interesting question for all claim owners. Mike
