Hiya Folks

I have'nt a clue what to do about this
That IP address was probably assigned to someone in the past who was banned (ISPs recycle their address pool regularly), but I've removed it from the exclusion list so you should be fine now.

Re: NOTICE BOARD

Well, in getting updated advert code from Google, to fix the redirect problem, there was the option to 'let them do it for me'. And we saw the outcome of that! I've disabled that onslaught of offensive commercial crap, we should be back to normal now. And yes, the server costs are met by running adv...

Re: NOTICE BOARD

A couple of times lately when posting on here I have had a sudden warning that my computer has been infected with viruses, and an invitation to scan it via a link. It happened a minute or two ago, too. I haven't clicked the link, but I ran my own virus check, and there is nothing wrong. I am postin...

We've now got a new SSL certificate installed (the padlock symbol), so you won't see any more warnings.

Re: NOTICE BOARD

All it means is, we have a certificate which tells you all your traffic between us and you is encrypted, no-one could read it even if they were technical enough to intercept it. The authority who issues the certificate, GeoTrust, have been temporarily dropped by Google and Apple, so the certificate ...

My antivirus software has started blocking BE. Says it is not secure and will not let me on here (currently on phone.) Anyone else have this issue?
Thanks for highlighting this Rachel, our SSL certificate needs renewing, we didn't get the notification email it seems!

Now I am compos mentis I have posted a couple of times offering support to other people and mentioning some of my past experience.

Happy Birthday Bright Eye

I'm very pleased to announce that today is the tenth anniversary of the start of this Bright Eye forum. In that time you have made over 600,000 posts, from over 10,000 members. Many online forums start up, but not many succeed - some descend into trolling and spam, or just dry up with insufficient n...

Re: NOTICE BOARD

Sorry people - the security certificate expired yesterday, and although the new one had been ordered a month ago, the server techs hadn't installed it yet. Phoned them this morning and they've installed it now. All good again.

Re: Ideas / Improvements / Requests for the Forum

Hi, is there any way to earmark posts that I want to keep to refer back to at a later date, especially when I need further tips without peeps having to go over they have already said some time ago? There are so many good posts that I want to reread but can’t remember where they were. Thanks ;)? The...

Re: Ideas / Improvements / Requests for the Forum

Well hopefully, now the migration is complete, there should be no reason for the site to be offline at all. We're on a more modern, reliable server now.
