Re: Kickerstarter FYI...

Might be new, might be an echo of their 2014 breach, might be some other site you've used the same password for..

Not saying changing passwords occasionally (and using unique passes) isn't a good idea.

Re: What's NEXT?

Remember, ZX Spectrum Next is a non-profit project from a very small team! Yes, that's a great reason to split communication channels. My point just is that this site *feels* like a second-class citizen when it comes to spec next news. That doesn't reduce it's officiality. I suppose we should be ha...

There is nothing unofficial about the Facebook group.
..which makes this site, which should be the official source of information, feel like a fan site. Rumours, random quotes from Facebook threads, etc.

Re: Account activation on the forum is now made manualy by admins

I moderated a forum for a fairly popular PC game, and figured that a lot of spam that got through to the custom forum software was from spam farms. They have actual people registering to popular boards. Sometimes they leave the accounts dormant for months. They try to engage in threads, sometimes in...
