      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

Who actually updates this site?

6 posts in this topic

I have been a member on this site for 6 years, and the content of the website is still the same. I tried reaching out to who the domain is listed under but never heard back. It bothers me because this really could be an awesome site. If they are not interested in maintaining this site anymore than pass it off to somebody that is like myself.

If any of you are on Facebook, I have started a group that is growing pretty good called Fishing New England.

did someone mention me?

Here's the deal. I agree. This site is way over due for a fairly major face lift. Problem is, I don't have complete control over it anymore.

For those who don't know the history, I'll sum up. I used to run this site with "Surfcaster".

After a few years of working together and building up this site, we both moved on to different ventures - yet stayed in touch. She runs this site, while I (being more of a hiker) went off the start http://www.HikingNewEngland.com, a site that has grown to be a player in the New England Hiking community.

The thing is, I'm more of a web developer, and she is more of a graphic artist. So, once she took over this site, and I moved on, it feels like the site kinda.. stopped evolving.

I've offered many, many times to step in and do some updates (having a personal connection to this site), but Surfcaster has some plans that she seems to be working on. I do still check the boards (in fact I own the license) and occasional post, but the fact is.. I'm not on team in charge here anymore. Uhg...

I reckon some updates are coming, but I can't say for sure.

Surfcaster, let's work together and fix this puppy up!

hey man!

Yeah, it's tough for me. I don't want to step on anyone's feet. I think it's pretty clear that the powers that be know I am here to help whenever they need it.
