    Its been hacked and spammed, They are all over it and the mods dont seem to be doing anything about it, I hope the guys running this site have a watch on it. I wouldnt like to see it happen again so mods of tapingandjointing just watch your back.

    Looks to me like they have closed the board to non members. Please send our regards and I hope they make a recovery soon.

    We have had our own problems and now use a plugin which keeps watch. It can be be ruthless and moderates new members trying to post a link but that is preferable to having the site full of incoherent babble with links to handbags and viagra. It doesn't get them all, but still catches hundreds every day.

    This would be the place to be for pills, cheap imitations and far east imports if they had their wicked way.... I dont take it personally as no human could register then make 4 or 5 posts in less than a minute. Its all automated and they plant their crap on any site they can.... like weeds. I'm a member @DWT too, I may log in later and see whats up.

    Somehow they set it up to make random user names and posts and flooded a lot of threads, 500 new members in a few days, It just kept coming, Last i was there if you tryed to post or quote a weird pop up came up wanting you to log in and give passwords, comfirm passwords and email addresses even though i logged in, Ive logged out now, I got hit with a ucash virus and it locked up my computer, It may not have come from DWT though they sneak in from anything.

    So now you cant post and the threads are loaded up with ramdom junk that keeps on coming, I think they may be trying to sort it but its been on for 5 or so days, Slow response from the Mods.

    I've upped the attachment size to 1024x768, but you may have to upload them again.

    If you want them to be bigger still, please load them into Photobucket and link from here. This topic here will walk you through the Photobucket upload.

    Thats right you did mention something like that a while back, Your the only one who has said that though, It looks like its all sorted and safe again now though.

    That door has 8 beads to finish them off, Takes a bit of time, Lucky there is only one door to do.
