    NewTek Discussion forums will be offline Wednesday for scheduled maintenance

    In an effort to introduce fresh air and sunshine to a large number of producers and animators, NewTek will be briefly taking the Community Forums offline Wednesday.

    Here’s a few extra hours in your day to install the LightWave Open Beta or catch up on some pre-production, while NewTek improves the forums, making this a friendlier, lower-calorie community*. The forums will go dark Wednesday afternoon and should be back online several hours later.

    Thank you for your patience,

    NewTek

    *do you know how many calories are in one serving of forum spam?

    I hope whatever you're doing to combat spam is effective. Good to see you're doing something about it.

    Cool. Hopefully it'll break my addiction of checking the forums so much.

    Funny thing is, I've watched how fast those spam threads get views - it's quicker than LightWave posts. I won't mention any names, but a lot of the guys here definately go for a peep - I've seen 'em listed at the bottom of the thread.

    They know who they are - perv's

    Anyway, I hope this move won't lower the sexual tension people have towards me, but I agree it has to be done.

    Everyone that thinks his name is at the bottom of EACH of them he checked, raise your other hand.

    Edit: And great to see the maintenance: tells me that I can work the whole day on my ...cough cough... real job.

    Mine would be on a few that I reported, but I gave up reporting a few months ago. Figured that someone else will always report them, and didn't want that crap in my browser history at all. So...raise your other hands!

    Exactly how many hands do you guys have free when you're found in such threads, eh?
    I'd have thought one hand on mouse, other hand busy

    Pumeco, I wish you hadn't said that.

    Your avatar suddenly took on a whole new meaning for me...

    Oh no! I'll actually have to do some work on Wednesday then!

    Still, if it kills 50% of the spam I'll be happy, I'm getting carpal tunnel syndrome!

    Well .. when it gets later on in the evening, I like to log in and report a few with some choice nasty grams for fun. My favorite from yesterday's "Budding young girls like Roses" post...

    Roses are red.
    Violets are blue.
    Go away douche bag.

    It's not only ineffective, it's also ineffective! It is however a mini-stress reliever.

    I usually go to the threads, if they are still fresh, to report them.

    I don't know what has been fixed, but why isn't the bug with downloaded attachments fixed?
    Renaming it from attachment.php to the proper name is getting annoying, and the LW-forum is the only forum I know which had that problem(and I know a lot of forums btw)

    It's true, the Hoff really is a truly pious dude...

    I saw him one night in one of Sydney's elevated nightclubs (with harbor views). He was so stiff you could have mistaken him for a wall and no one paid him much attention, the poor bastard.
