Hello, long time no see.

(Scroll to the last paragraph for the REAL info.)

This is Daniel writing, otherwise known as *MODERATOR* when I'm in that kind of mood. I have been one of the admins of the site and moderator of the forum since 2005 (as far as I can remember, it's been a while). However, as of a few years back, when this great rambunctious raucous we call The Cardigans went on a (well deserved, do we agree?) hiatus, I fear I have been neglecting my duties.

First of all though let me say that it's great to see that some of you guys are keeping the forum alive and are continuing to share info around these parts! Really warms the heart. Nice to see some familiar faces as well as new acquaintances.

Now, where was I? Yes... the moderation of the forum. Like I said, I have been neglecting my duties, only peeping in now and then (actually, it's probably much less than that) to keep an eye on things. Luckily you're doing a great job keeping this place nice and civil. I do hope you forgive me though. Since I last made a major contribution to these parts, I have undertaken a PhD graduate program in neuroscience, which takes up most of my time. Science is a demanding, but rewarding, mistress.

But I digress...

I would appreciate it very much if you could help me with the following: If there is a moderating issue on the forum, such as spamming or trolling, could you please send someone to gently poke me on the shoulder and say - "Daniel, please get your nose out of that ever growing pile of scientific papers and come back to The Cardigans' forum for a while", and I will be most obliged to comply.

You can reach me here: daniel [at] egosumdaniel.se


I trust that the forum will continue in its sleepy* state and that there won't be many issues, but I've noticed a few instances of spamming here and there in the Abuse reports and regretfully I don't read those unless I come here and open them.

Be well!

// Daniel

*) I mean a good kind of sleepy. Like a summer evening nap in a sunny spot on the couch.

Thanks for checking in Daniel. Good to hear from you and I'm sure we'll let you know if any mischief occurs. But as you have seen things have been civil here and relatively quiet. Good luck studying the brain! :-)

It seems we've been the victims of a little spambot infestation recently. It has been taken care of. The spambot has been banned and the threads have been deleted. Thank you Dale for letting me know.

The bot has indeed been banned several times, but seems to return creating new user accounts with the same name...

That stupid "ai1ove" thing won't die. Guess it's time for fanglobe to get involved.

I'm getting errors when posting and editing posts as well. Time to contact the higher powers that be to fix a few things.

Great! Please, tell them to fix the width of the forum too, make it bigger or adaptable because this is bad even for 2005 standards (or whenever they introduced this Fanglobe design).
