Glad it wasn't just me - I couldn't access the website yesterday evening either. Eventually got a server time-out page, so gave up. Glad it's back up and working now :thumbl:

Is there any way to make 2 (or more) columns in a post?

I need some way to shorten my trading post and no I am not giving you (whoever you are) all my spares. :D

No there isn't unfortunately, other than doing it in a proper word processor, saving it as an image and basically posting a picture of your list.

Thanks for the heads-up - account now banned.

We're getting at least half a dozen spam new users a day at the moment - the ban hammer's hardly having time to cool down :twisted:

:shock: good gods, are you really? How very dare they! Off to the Dungeon Dimensions with them!

Is this a recent thing? Perhaps we should institute a few screening questions as part of the Registration process - if they can't answer the following questions, they can't come in:
1) What is the first name of the (former) Dean of Unseen University?
2) What does Death like to murder?
3) What is the Librarian?

What was the Latin phrase they used as their user name? The thread you posted disappeared when I clicked on it, but from the brief glance I got at the Latin phrase, it would translate to something like (bearing in mind my Latin is VERY rusty):
The Romans were working in the interests of spreading 'iptv' - not sure what 'iptv' is, but given they're spammers, Internet Protocol TV, maybe?
