Upgraded forum to most recent YaBB version (finally!)

As you probably noticed, the appearance of the forum has changed.  I decided to upgrade to the latest version partly because of this recent occurrence:

You may have noticed that a lot of messages are now out of order.  About one and a half days ago, someone using a user name of margaretaj mass spammed the forum with 130 messages total, which must have been spread over at least an hour of posting, because of the time limit between postings.

I have deleted all of those messages, but it seems that on this forum topics do not go back to the original order after deleting messages.


As a result of upgrading, I've been able to fix the topic sorting.  I've also purged the user database of most accounts with no posts, since there were ridiculous numbers of unused accounts floating around that were mostly from spammers.  If I've deleted anyone's account by mistake, go ahead and recreate it if you have the intention of using it.

Wonderful!

I see that RSS feeds also work on the new forum software. That is much wanted by me Smiley

Thanks a bunch!
